Clear skies welcomed the 3581 spectators who had made their way to Melodrome. Saken Gabbasov was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . The kiwis decided to use a 4-3-3 set up. The following players took the field: Jovanović - Ringelnatz, Mezey, Wietecha, Naić - 恩邦 (Enbang), 宝民 (Baomin), Leblois - You, Aventuroso, Baryś.

White-Blue tactics involved an interesting 4-4-2 combination. Lineup: Bubka - Schwartz, Bin Jassim Al-Rumaihi, Kraß, Arnold - Fehringer, Peuccelle, Győző, Sønderlund - Beeckmans, Al-Nuaimi.

Counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of White-Blue, taking advantage of their titanic level with that tactic. The referee showed The kiwis's Mátyás Mezey the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. White-Blue almost scored after a swift counterattack 16 minutes into the game, but Selmar Fehringer put the shot from the left flank just outside the goal. The kiwis's Adalmasio Aventuroso got himself booked for a foul. Unfortunately for White-Blue, Wender Beeckmans was injured when the game became more physical, and he had to leave the field. Muftaah 'GoalMachine' Al-Buzwair replaced him. The kiwis fans held their breath as Adalmasio Aventuroso scampered down the left side. He successfully avoided all challenges and cracked home the shot for 1 - 0! An accurate cross from Jean Leblois of The kiwis was met with a wonderful glancing header from Adalmasio Aventuroso, hitting the inside base of the post before nestling into the back of the net for 2 - 0. A scuffle developed as players from both sides clashed following a tussle in the centre of the field 36 minutes into the match. After regaining order and consulting his linesman, the referee called The kiwis's 杜 (Du) 宝民 (Baomin) to one side and produced a red card for the player. White-Blue were forced into a substitution as Selmar Fehringer couldn't continue due to some rough treatment, forcing Saad Shahatri to come in off the bench. Dominic Arnold of White-Blue received a yellow card after 39 minutes for unsportsmanlike behaviour. The teams went for the halftime break at 2 - 0. The kiwis enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 65 percent of possession.

After 52 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by Mátyás Mezey might have resulted in another goal for The kiwis. However, Mieczysław Bubka made a spectacular save. After 53 minutes, White-Blue's Oscar Sønderlund fell awkwardly, but was determined to stay in the match. That's the spirit! The kiwis managed to extend their lead to 3 - 0 when Vojin Naić cut in neatly from the left side and struck a fine shot past the away team's goalkeeper. White-Blue almost scored after a counterattack 65 minutes into the match, but Dominic Arnold took a shot from the left that landed harmlessly in the side of the net. White-Blue's defence sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counterattack with 71 minutes gone, but Siegfried Kraß's finish was met by the reaching hands of the keeper. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by The kiwis, with 65 percent of the ball.

The most dominating The kiwis player was without a doubt Vanny You. Arkadiusz Baryś on the other hand, had a terrible day. White-Blue's best player was Fahad Bin Jassim Al-Rumaihi. However, Zsombor Győző made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 3 - 0.
