Dark skies made the crowd of 2064 at TSINA-Arena a little nervous, but the rain held off. Adonis Daniel was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Enrique Delgado and Richard Langlet. The following players had been chosen: Kasimovskiy - Liukinishvili, Lekishvili, Gelantia, Chaladze - Mtveriashvili, Dugladze, Surguladze, Abesadze, Dabagishvili - Chachava.

They fielded: Düzen - Dashev, Tenchev, Garufa - Moyà, Orbelyan, Tvalabeishvili, Dekanoidze, Brănoiu - Edvardsen, Cheng.

fc-vardzia fielded a 4-5-1 lineup. For F.C. Mtatsminda, the formation of choice was 3-5-2. fc-vardzia clearly had decided to counter-attack when they could, taking advantage of their excellent level with that tactic. The home crowd was not impressed by the fancy moves of Mtatsminda's Andrei Brănoiu after 11 minutes. He converted a pass from the left for a goal, resulting in the visitors taking the 0 - 1 lead. After 18 minutes, Krum Dashev suffered a slight injury to his left calf muscle. However, it was not enough to stop him from continuing the game. With 25 minutes played, Mtatsminda put themselves up 0 - 2 after an attack from the right, caused by a defensive blunder. The scorer was Jovert Cheng. The home crowd was not impressed when Andrei Brănoiu came in from the right, shooting hard to score after 27 minutes. Mtatsminda were now up 0 - 3. A drive down the left side allowed Jovert Cheng to get in close and score another goal for Mtatsminda after 32 minutes, taking the score to 0 - 4. Mtatsminda increased their lead after 34 minutes when Kvarkvare Tvalabeishvili broke through on the right, upping the score to 0 - 5, much to the home crowd's dismay. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 5. Mtatsminda claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 60 percent.

The coach of Mtatsminda was happy with the game so far, but still wanted to change the line up. After 47 minutes, Zaza Kvirtidze came on for Andrei Brănoiu. Hago Orbelyan was, after 51 minutes, almost able to extend the visitors' lead with a well placed diving header after the ball had looped into the centre, but the home side's keeper Pavel Kasimovskiy made the save. The visitors' Jesús Moyà took advantage of a misunderstanding between the home side's goalie and centre backs 52 minutes into the match. 0 - 6 for Mtatsminda. Roman Surguladze of fc-vardzia was booked for kicking the ball away after the whistle. 67 minutes into the game, Mtatsminda worked the left side industriously creating several opportunities to add to their lead, but just couldn't apply the finishing touch. Good work by the fc-vardzia defensive line after 68 minutes produced a good counterattack chance, which cut elegantly down the middle of the pitch and found Tazo Lekishvili alone in front of the goal, but his shot whistled just wide. The bench was restless, and with 70 minutes passed fc-vardzia's coach gave Badri Aphkhadze the opportunity the player had been hoping for. Roman Surguladze reluctantly left the field. Given a free kick close to the byline, Mtatsminda tried a move that loyal fans may recognise from training. A pass to the side pulled the defence out of position which let Roar Edvardsen slip through on goal. He didn't have to break his stride, and slipped the ball past the keeper to make it 0 - 7, 73 minutes into the game. The players were tired, but when the referee announced that there would be 2 minutes of added time they, nonetheless, welcomed the extra opportunity to make an impact. The match ends 0 - 7. Mtatsminda enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 61 percent of possession.

Jurkha Liukinishvili performed admirably for fc-vardzia. Pavel Kasimovskiy on the other hand, had a terrible day. Mtatsminda's top performer was clearly Roar Edvardsen. Zaza Kvirtidze was a disappointment, however.
