A scorching day at Garlitos, where 49627 spectators were in place for today's match. Roger Eliassen was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Khaled Zitouni and Eriq Molkenbur. For some players the sunny weather was bad news. It made Powerful and Quick players a bit sluggish. For Technical players, it was instead an advantage, allowing them to shine on the pitch. Lineup: Kelayeh - Díaz-Aguado, Bola, Picollà, Nie Su, Velar - Collotto, Taffarel, Roquer, Toivanen, Brogaard -.

They fielded: Khater - Gopegi, Gazzella, Cifuentes - Citelli, Corsmit, Resa, Varga, Bray - Verdi, Geffroy.

Zafreño started the game in a 5-5-0 formation, whereas Motxilotarrak lined up in a 3-5-2 formation. Zafreño was determined to use their divine long shot ability. After 5 minutes, Zafreño's Camilo 'Eneldo' Collotto swiftly ran past Txema Cifuentes and nutmegged the keeper! 1 - 0. Kévin Geffroy came close to levelling the score 11 minutes into the game, as he was set up with a through ball coming in from the left, but his shot hit the post. It was obvious that Zafreño set up their play to get a shooter in position, and after 25 minutes they succeeded with their tactics when Josep Enric 'Cardamomo' Roquer found a hole in the defence and his long shot left the keeper without a chance. 2 - 0. The referee showed Zafreño's Lenni 'Hinojo' Toivanen the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Halftime score was 2 - 0. Motxilotarrak claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 53 percent.

Although the whole team were struggling to impress, Motxilotarrak's Rókus Varga was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the pitch after 55 minutes. Stanislav Topoľančík was given a chance to change things around. After 56 minutes Zafreño showed some great patience outside the penalty area, waiting until Sérgio 'Vainilla' Taffarel could find the right opportunity to finish off the attack from distance. The long shot, however, was an easy catch for Haytham Khater. A foul called during a Motxilotarrak counterattack resulted in a great chance to score, but Paolo Verdi's shot rattled off the post. The referee announced 1 minute of stoppage time, giving fans a slim hope that their team could get one more attack in before this was all over. The match ends 2 - 0. Possession in this half belonged to Motxilotarrak, who controlled the ball 51 percent of the time.

Zafreño's top performer was clearly Hami Kelayeh. However, Diego 'Cúrcuma' Díaz-Aguado made a disastrous appearance. Motxilotarrak's best player was Kévin Geffroy. On the other hand, Anthony Bray's play was disheartening.
