2907 spectators had found their way to Zum Sportplatz, despite the heavy rain. Stefano Rysler was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Bruno Taxis and . The match took place on neutral ground. Gutierrez had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. Lineup: Pengsapha - Alexander, Venâncio, Júnior - Moskała, Volpi, Sander, Mota, Lombardi - Ortiz, Zavaglia.

A 5-3-2 alignment was the formation of choice for Sinthern. They fielded: Karnaukhov - Eichenseder, Gostomski, Povolo, Mayer-Haßelwander, Melas - Gurda, Bielec, Bohn - Harris, Giraldo.

Sinthern clearly had decided to counter-attack when they could, taking advantage of their utopian level with that tactic. Sinthern's Nontas Melas was shown a yellow card after 2 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Gutierrez's Diego Mota went down after a savage challenge, but could continue playing after some medical attention. It was a bad day for the usually speedy Thiago Lombardi. The mud seemed to slow him down. Making his way up the middle 30 minutes into the match, Kauê 'Mano' Júnior almost managed to squeeze a goal past the visitors' keeper, but the alert Lev Karnaukhov blocked it to keep the score level. Mauricio Giraldo came close to putting the visiting team one up 31 minutes into the match, following a solo raid down the middle, but Dejchana Pengsapha managed to tip the ball to a corner. 43 minutes had elapsed when a great chance for Gutierrez to take the lead after a good cross from the right found Sérgio José Ortiz alone with the keeper, but he chipped it to the wrong side of the post. 0 - 0 was the halftime score. Gutierrez claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 75 percent.

After 51 minutes of play, Diego Mota gave the home team a 1 - 0 lead after an attack coming in from the right. Gutierrez's Carlos Renato 'Careca' Alexander got himself booked for a foul. After 56 minutes, the defensive line of Sinthern created a counterattack through the middle that gave Adam Bielec a good look at the goal, but his shot glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. After 60 minutes, Sinthern switched Krystyn Gurda with Tobias Westerlaken, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. Sinthern's counterattacks created a good chance for Mauricio Giraldo on the right after 60 minutes, but he could only look on with dismay as his strike rebounded off the crossbar. The Gutierrez players could smell victory in the air. Michel Zavaglia wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for Yoann Trocme after 64 minutes. With 64 minutes played, Diego Mota could have brought this one home for Gutierrez as he charged up on the left, but his hooked ball went just a bit too high. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Oscar Bohn from Sinthern a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 71 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! Evair Volpi of Gutierrez seemed to be floating in the air as he elegantly headed in to make the score 2 - 0 after a corner kick that was nicely executed by Sérgio José Ortiz. After this, you could see that the players of Gutierrez were more interested in killing time than scoring more goals. With 80 minutes played, the Sinthern coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. Margarido Liberato came on, Mauricio Giraldo had to leave the fray. Mauricio Giraldo was coming off, and had placed his last free kick for the day. That meant that Paolo Povolo got the chance to showcase his dead ball skills. With the clock showing 80 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of Sinthern resulted in a counterattack that was smoothly brought under control by Oscar Bohn in the centre of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. Possession in this half belonged to Gutierrez, who controlled the ball 77 percent of the time.

Gutierrez's top performer was clearly Yoann Trocme. Evair Volpi was a disappointment, however. Most important Sinthern player was Paulo Eichenseder. However, Paolo Povolo made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 2 - 0.
