The two managers greeted each other with a warm hug in front of their respective squads. No wonder - the N3RDS Utd manager is on record describing the other as "A great friend and an even greater football mind".

Clouds darkened the skies at CaMPo De ToRTuRa (NO PASE) as 4098 spectators turned up for the match. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Fabrice Cuénot. The match took place on neutral ground. Matadores had chosen a strategic 4-5-1 formation. Starters: Bragadireanu - Rosener, Rumple, Rapisarda, Arifaj - Egas, Wang, Korpysz, Solarewicz, Koye - Prantl.

N3RDS Utd tactics involved an interesting 4-4-2 combination. They fielded: Hörtenhuemer - Ariagno, Baptista, Saba, Özek - Mükrim, Stensson, Pfaeffli, Teti - Sakho, Pregartbauer.

Counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of N3RDS Utd, taking advantage of their world class level with that tactic. Making his way up the middle 14 minutes into the match, Sylweriusz Solarewicz almost managed to squeeze a goal past the visitors' keeper, but the alert Karsten 'der Schrank' Hörtenhuemer blocked it to keep the score level. Alassane 'al dente' Sakho stunned the crowd with a brilliant counterattack from the left, giving N3RDS Utd the goal to make it 0 - 1. Matadores put pressure on the visitors' central defence 18 minutes into the game, but Rafał Korpysz couldn't find an opening. Following a foul after 23 minutes, Matadores got themselves a free kick just outside the penalty area. Simon Wang levelled the scoreline - 1 - 1. After a fine move down the middle Simon Wang nearly gave the home side a goal after 26 minutes. However the finishing shot went just wide. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Mojmír Prantl got himself booked. The manager of Matadores was not happy. Matadores were very close to putting themselves one up after 32 minutes as Dietrich Rosener got through on the left. However, his concentration failed him, and he shot wide. 1 - 1 was the score after the first half. Matadores had most of the ball, with 76 percent of possession.

A corner kick created great disorder in the penalty area with a goal nearly scored by Mojmír Prantl. At last, Matadores's Paul Rumple was able to backheel the ball in. 2 - 1. Paul Rumple unleashed a swerving effort from the right that the visitors' keeper did well to tip wide. Mojmír Prantl remonstrated furiously with the referee after Matadores had another decision go against them. The referee had no alternative but to show him another yellow card and send him from the pitch. Matadores put in a good effort on the right, but Hein Egas saw his volley fly wide of the mark 72 minutes into the game. The Matadores players could smell victory in the air. Salih Arifaj wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for Karel van Helfteren after 75 minutes. With 78 minutes gone, a long pass from the defence of N3RDS Utd resulted in a counterattack that set Sammy 'die Pfeife' Pfaeffli free through the middle, but the keeper made a spectacular diving save. Rafał Korpysz wanted to play on, but the Matadores coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 80 minutes into the game by Watse Versée. The coach of Matadores was happy with the game so far, but still wanted to change the line up. After 85 minutes, Cristóvão Rocha came on for Willy Koye. With 85 minutes played, Simon Wang could have brought this one home for Matadores as he charged up on the left, but his hooked ball went just a bit too high. N3RDS Utd almost scored after a counterattack 86 minutes into the match, but Soeiro Baptista took a shot from the left that landed harmlessly in the side of the net. With 87 minutes played, Hein Egas of Matadores fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. Matadores enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 76 percent of possession.

Sylweriusz Solarewicz performed admirably for Matadores. On the other hand, Andrea Rapisarda's play was disheartening. Most important N3RDS Utd player was René 'Flying Hirsch' Pregartbauer. However, Soeiro Baptista made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 2 - 1.
