Due to an all-day shower, 2694 paying spectators got to see a match on a pitch-turned-bog at OlympiaStadion Menzah. Mattias Vintermo was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Kaarlo Rantanen and Franz-Josef Oehry. The match took place on neutral ground. Sarakham tactics involved an interesting 4-4-2 combination. Starters: Ortíz - Guðfinnsson, Välimäki, Kacalski, Preining - Ubaka, Draaisma, Durán, Abarzua - Scarpa, Yatip.

Bördepower started off with a 3-5-2 lineup. The following players took the field: Weiss - Birkeland, Diouri, Grigorov - Genrich, Meth, Em, Wolf, Gölles - Houben, Jalink.

Today, Sarakham's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their outstanding level with that tactic. Some good play on the left wing created an opportunity for the visitors 2 minutes into the match, and Laurens-Jan Jalink wasn't about to let it go by. He got past the defenders and fired a shot that the keeper just missed. 0 - 1 for the visitors. 4 minutes into the match, the visitors put themselves ahead 0 - 2 as Laurens-Jan Jalink finished off an attack from the left with a spectacular scissors kick. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Tobias Genrich from Bördepower a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 6 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! Some fine movement on the left led to a Bördepower goal after 25 minutes, making it 0 - 3. Laurens-Jan Jalink was noted down as the scorer. This third goal completed a hattrick for Laurens-Jan Jalink. At this point, it was obvious that the players of Bördepower lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. The rain made it hard for players like Raphael Wolf to show their technical control of the ball on this soggy day. After 35 minutes, an incisive pass through the middle gave Emanuel Houben a chance to increase the lead for Bördepower, and he did not disappoint. The score was then 0 - 4. Crispin Preining seemed highly inexperienced when, after 38 minutes, he was caught dilly-dallying with the ball and allowed Filip Grigorov to intercept and strike home the goal for Bördepower to make the score 0 - 5. A drive down the left side allowed Emanuel Houben to get in close and score another goal for Bördepower after 42 minutes, taking the score to 0 - 6. 0 - 6 was the halftime score. Bördepower enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 68 percent of possession.

Although the whole team were struggling to impress, Sarakham's Emmanuel Ubaka was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the pitch after 46 minutes. Karl-Henry Ivarsson was given a chance to change things around. Emanuel Houben, who often relies on his speed, had a rotten day on the drenched grass. Rotha Em came close to extending the visitors' lead when he found himself completely unmarked in front of the goal after a pass through the middle. He tried to lift the ball over César Ortíz but overcooked it and hit the bar instead. Geir Birkeland received a delicate pass through the home side's central defence after 62 minutes, and chipped it past the flailing keeper to score making it 0 - 7. The Bördepower fans went wild, whilst the home fans started to think about leaving early. With 64 minutes played, a quick exchange of passes on the left wing freed Filip Grigorov of Bördepower to slip through the defence and score another goal for the visitors. That made the score 0 - 8. After 68 minutes, Bördepower sent a free kick in high over the penalty box. In what looked like a well-rehearsed move, the ball was headed backwards and reached Raphael Wolf, who had plenty of space to place a well aimed shot - 0 - 9. Geir Birkeland didn't let the weather get him down and made some great moves on the pitch in spite of the rain. The visitors added to their lead 75 minutes into the game, after a sensational penalty kick by Bördepower's Souhaïb Diouri slid just past the home keeper. 0 - 10. Bördepower claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 72 percent.

Luciano Scarpa performed admirably for Sarakham. Crispin Preining on the other hand, had a terrible day. Bördepower's top performer was clearly Erwin Gölles. However, Sotearith 'Crystal' Meth made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 0 - 10.
