Dark skies made the crowd of 60799 at Toplice Arena a little nervous, but the rain held off. Acisclo Oleiros was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Luis Steinmeyer and Jani Finskas. Starters: Luks - Hovorka, Kenyon, Federlein, Makula, Høgset - Solleveld, Skowerski, Øren - Borroni, van der Pas.

They fielded: Renis - Tomac, Hollweger, Huwaert, Falco - Dron, Vītums, Haris, D'Annibale - Caugant, Conceição.

It was to be a contest between two different football philosophies, since the home team started the game with a 5-3-2 formation while the visitors instead opted for 4-4-2. For their match strategy, Toplice had decided to use their extra-terrestrial ability to counter-attack whenever possible. tribune clearly had decided to counter-attack when they could, taking advantage of their magical level with that tactic. The guests almost went up by a goal after 7 minutes when Ivan Tomac came through and shot from the right. The ball bounced harmlessly off the post, though. Good work by the Toplice defensive line after 8 minutes produced a good counterattack chance, which cut elegantly down the middle of the pitch and found Emile van der Pas alone in front of the goal, but his shot whistled just wide. Toplice's Emile van der Pas has the wonderful ability to create chances out of thin air. 20 minutes into the match he bamboozled a couple of opposition defenders before sending the keeper the wrong way and sidefooting the ball home into an empty net. That totally unexpected burst of flair made it 1 - 0. Joel Haris of tribune seemed to be floating in the air as he elegantly headed in to make the score 1 - 1 after a corner kick that was nicely executed by Christophe Huwaert. tribune's Steve Dron managed to lose the defenders as he advanced down the right wing and scored, putting the visitors ahead after 25 minutes. 1 - 2. Had it not been for one of the home defenders, Steve Dron would have put tribune up another goal 30 minutes into the match with his audacious lob from the right wing. Toplice had a great opportunity to score following a counterattack after 31 minutes, but Emile van der Pas's shot from the left sailed high over the bar. 1 - 2 was the halftime score. tribune had most of the ball, with 61 percent of possession.

Carlos Alberto 'Conchita' Conceição of tribune took advantage of a mistake on the home side's right after 59 minutes which increased the away team's lead to 1 - 3. After 65 minutes, Toplice switched Marko Solleveld with Óscar Urraca, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. The coach of tribune was happy with the game so far, but still wanted to change the line up. After 68 minutes, Raymond August came on for Xaver Hollweger. With 70 minutes played, the Toplice coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. Otbert Clasen came on, Marco Borroni had to leave the fray. With Marco Borroni no longer on the pitch, Otbert Clasen became the new set pieces taker. Massimiliano D'Annibale wanted to play on, but the tribune coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 73 minutes into the game by Kamran bin Hj Habib. tribune came close to extending their lead as Armands Vītums delivered a low effort on goal from the right after 82 minutes, but the angle was too narrow and the shot went harmlessly into the side netting. 83 minutes into the game Toplice managed a counterattack, but Árpád Hovorka took a soft shot from the left flank that was easy prey for the alert keeper. The referee decided to let play continue for an additional 1 minute beyond the regular 90 minutes. The match ends 1 - 3. tribune claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 62 percent.

Most important Toplice player was Emile van der Pas. Otbert Clasen on the other hand, had a terrible day. tribune's top performer was clearly Yannick Caugant. Vaišvilas Renis turned in a dismal performance, however.
