Meerbusch 0 - 2 ASB

3129 spectators had found their way to The Devils Pit, despite the heavy rain. Viorel Rãdut was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Leonardus van den Top and Román Matapozuelos. The match took place on neutral ground. Meerbusch started off with a 3-5-2 lineup. The following players had been chosen: Fisher - Avesio, Raymi, Burley - Sawane, Baguecho, Kreisinger, Mattmann, Gargioni - Yahia, Shambrook.

ASB tactics involved an interesting 3-5-2 combination. Starters: Goarin - Wäckerlin, Bertolotti, Wicky - Meffle, García de Toledo, Clough, Pitzecker, Rubiales - Öke, Puntanen.

Always a threat, Enrique Rubiales tore past his marker and placed the ball right at the feet of the waiting Ville Puntanen who should have easily scored for ASB, but the ball went wide. Hugh Fisher looked great 21 minutes into the match after stopping a shot from the middle of the penalty area from the visitors' Ville Puntanen. After 22 minutes, Enrique Rubiales sent the corner kick right to Pablo García de Toledo who headed it sharply past the keeper. 0 - 1! Fabio Gargioni slipped and slithered in the wet grass. His usual rapid runs were nowhere to be seen today. It was 0 - 1 at the break. ASB had most of the ball, with 60 percent of possession.

With 53 minutes played, ASB put themselves up 0 - 2 after an attack from the right, caused by a defensive blunder. The scorer was Ersan Öke. Confident in their lead, ASB's players relaxed and focused more on defending the lead than increasing it. Barnabás Árgyelán was called on to replace ASB's Josef Meffle after 63 minutes following a nasty collision. Meerbusch's Martin Kreisinger got himself booked for a foul. Due to a severely mistimed tackle, Pablo García de Toledo of ASB spent some time on the grass writhing in agony before he could get up and continue the game. A defender managed to keep the ball from crossing the goal-line after a curling shot coming in from the right from Ville Puntanen after 81 minutes, and prevented ASB from going up another goal. ASB claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 60 percent.

Most important Meerbusch player was Najib Yahia. On the other hand, George Burley's play was disheartening. ASB's top performer was clearly Ville Puntanen. However, Ersan Öke made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 0 - 2.
