It was to be a contest between two different football philosophies, since the home team started the game with a 4-4-2 formation while the visitors instead opted for 5-5-0. Zafreño was determined to use their divine (+1) long shot ability. Zafreño succeeded with their tactics after 15 minutes faking a cross into the penalty area, but instead passing a short side pass back to Diego 'Cilantro' Velar who met the ball directly with his outstretched foot. The hard long shot touched the keeper's finger tips, but it wasn't enough to stop it from going in. 0 - 1. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Abuzittin 'Hierbabuena' Erbay from Zafreño a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 27 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! Adam Nowakiewicz went down after twisting his left ankle after 27 minutes, and had to leave the pitch. Dariusz Błażków tried to hide a smile as he entered the field. He had not expected to get a chance this day. The referee signalled a penalty 30 minutes into the game following an offence which looked like it was outside the box. Sérgio 'Vainilla' Taffarel knocked it home to make the score 0 - 2. Ghibli had a great opportunity to score following a counterattack after 32 minutes, but Klaus Heim's shot from the left sailed high over the bar. Sérgio 'Vainilla' Taffarel increased Zafreño's lead to 0 - 3 with a superb free kick strike that flew in just under the far top corner. After 39 minutes Zafreño showed some great patience outside the penalty area, waiting until Thomas 'Guindilla' La Fauce could find the right opportunity to finish off the attack from distance. The long shot, however, was an easy catch for Juan Jesús Corbino. 0 - 3 was the halftime score. Possession in this half belonged to Zafreño, who controlled the ball 77 percent of the time.

It emerged that Alessandro Berbeglia had hurt his left foot after 50 minutes, which led him to abandon the game. The player that took his place was Richard Harding. After 64 minutes a well-practised indirect free kick routine by Zafreño was easily anticipated by the defenders. The players forward were so well marked, they were left with few viable options. Instead of playing a 50/50 ball into the penalty area, Zafreño's Josep Enric 'Cardamomo' Roquer skipped past the marking defender and passed the ball to Diego 'Cilantro' Velar who finished it off from distance. The keeper could only stand and watch as the hard shot hit the underside of the cross bar, and in to make it 0 - 4 with 74 minutes played. Zafreño made it 0 - 5 as Diego 'Cúrcuma' Díaz-Aguado got a touch to the floated corner kick and flicked the ball to Hugo 'Cayena' Moreira who whipped a low drive in off the far post. Diego 'Cúrcuma' Díaz-Aguado held up a Zafreño attack after 78 minutes, waited until Josep Enric 'Cardamomo' Roquer was in shooting position, and then elegantly set him up. Josep Enric 'Cardamomo' Roquer didn't disappoint his team mates, and from a distance he curled the ball with precision to the right of the keeper making it 0 - 6. After 88 minutes, Zafreño felt secure enough to make a tactical change. Ringo 'Pimienta Negra' Oldendorf and Sérgio 'Vainilla' Taffarel assumed each others positions on the field. Still ahead in the game after 88 minutes, Zafreño made some tactical adjustments. Tuomas 'Pimentón' Arponen and Josep Enric 'Cardamomo' Roquer swapped positions. Encouraged by their lead, after 89 minutes the Zafreño coach asked Hugo 'Cayena' Moreira to change positions with Lenni 'Hinojo' Toivanen. As the match clock hit 89 minutes, Zafreño regrouped to try and keep their initiative in the game. Abuzittin 'Hierbabuena' Erbay high-fived Diego 'Cúrcuma' Díaz-Aguado as they swapped positions on the team. While defending the Zafreño lead, Thomas 'Guindilla' La Fauce got a new role. 89 minutes in the game, his coach ordered him to change positions with Diego 'Cilantro' Velar. It was announced by the referee that he estimated stoppage time to be around 3 minutes. This meant there could still be an extra attack or two left in the match! The match ends 0 - 6. Zafreño had most of the ball, with 79 percent of possession.

Andri Isoz performed admirably for Ghibli. Richard Harding on the other hand, had a terrible day. Most important Zafreño player was Diego 'Cúrcuma' Díaz-Aguado. However, Jean 'Azafrán' Rouget made a disastrous appearance.
