The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 2585 had shown up at L'Arène du Château for the match. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . FC-CASTELLA had chosen a strategic 2-5-3 formation. Lineup: Gaboriaud - 偌彪 (Ruobiao), Rosekrans - Pescina, Boursin, Barrera, Macé, Hofinger - Soulet, Hahn, Batisse.

Mammut tactics involved an interesting 3-5-2 combination. They fielded: De Muner - Albano, Schmidts, Nitz - Thorhauge, Morera, Schindelar, Eben, Wück - Ziza, Laber.

Nathan 'Quark' Laber came close to putting the visiting team one up 8 minutes into the match, following a solo raid down the middle, but Cyrille Gaboriaud managed to tip the ball to a corner. Juan Antonio Barrera stunned the crowd with a brilliant counterattack from the left, giving FC-CASTELLA the goal to make it 1 - 0. As the game started to slip away for Mammut, the manager decided to change the tactical approach. Things were going to get worse for the visitors. Julien Batisse squirmed through their central defence after 16 minutes, increasing the lead to 2 - 0. Unhappy with the result so far in the game, the Mammut manager used a brief break in play after 16 minutes to give the players new directives. With 20 minutes played, Mammut's well-worked indirect free kick caused havoc in the penalty area, and when the ball eventually fell to Bronno Nitz he gleefully slotted the ball home to make it 2 - 1. The teams went for the halftime break at 2 - 1. FC-CASTELLA had most of the ball, with 52 percent of possession.

FC-CASTELLA's Stéphane Boursin had an excellent opportunity after 53 minutes, shooting after receiving a pass from the right hand side, but he missed the goal by miles! Mammut levelled the score after 56 minutes to make it 2 - 2, as Evald 'Danish Dynamite' Thorhauge struck home after a fine midfield combination through the centre, which left him completely unmarked. A questionable penalty 59 minutes in gave the home side the lead, 3 - 2. The visitors' goalie didn't stand a chance as Juan Antonio Barrera knocked the ball home. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Nathan 'Quark' Laber from Mammut a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 61 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! The coach of FC-CASTELLA was happy with the game so far, but still wanted to change the line up. After 71 minutes, Stéphane Pépé came on for Juan Antonio Barrera. Juan Antonio Barrera was coming off, and had placed his last free kick for the day. That meant that Pietro Pescina got the chance to showcase his dead ball skills. Tobias Rosekrans wanted to play on, but the FC-CASTELLA coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 74 minutes into the game by Gordon Handl. FC-CASTELLA's Alexandre Soulet increased the lead to 4 - 2, after he saw his shot go between the legs of the advancing goalkeeper following some good play down the right wing after 75 minutes. Mammut had to make a substitution after 77 minutes. Burkhart 'Wirbelwind' Wück limped off the field and was replaced by Landry Bilong. FC-CASTELLA increased the lead as Alexandre Soulet struck to make the score 5 - 2 after an attack from the left left him unmarked in front of the keeper. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Bronno Nitz got himself booked. The manager of Mammut was not happy. FC-CASTELLA put themselves up 6 - 2 when Julien Batisse broke through on the right, leaving the entire defence trailing in his wake. At this point, it was obvious that the players of FC-CASTELLA lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. Possession in this half belonged to FC-CASTELLA, who controlled the ball 53 percent of the time.

The most dominating FC-CASTELLA player was without a doubt Julien Batisse. On the other hand, Cyrille Gaboriaud's play was disheartening. Georg 'Quälix' Schindelar performed admirably for Mammut. Giancarlo De Muner on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 6 - 2.
