Using their counter-attacking abilities was the strategy of choice for White-Blue on this day, taking advantage of their mythical level with that tactic. BugaTor were mostly trying to use their mythical skill at attacking on the flanks. Down the middle came Plinio Porquinho, making a fantastic play that nearly had BugaTor take the lead after 17 minutes, but Mieczysław Bubka preserved the tie. Siegfried Kraß, who often relies on his speed, had a rotten day on the drenched grass. BugaTor had to make a substitution after 29 minutes. Michael Reddermann limped off the field and was replaced by Heribert Erlangen. The counterattacks of White-Blue were deadly and 32 minutes into the game, Hamdan 'Bomber' Al-Nuaimi received a nice pass from the right flank, making it 1 - 0. White-Blue's Mansour Bin Jassem Al-Khulaifi left the field after 33 minutes because of a nasty blow to the shin. His replacement was Abdulrab Al-Hamed. 34 minutes in, White-Blue's Oscar Sønderlund received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. Attacking on the wings was the choice for BugaTor, and they were successfully passing the ball from the middle to the wings to attack. The visitors kept the pressure on to tie the game when, after 39 minutes, Arne Schnitzer broke through the centre and found himself alone with the keeper. Mieczysław Bubka made a great block, though. The teams went for the halftime break at 1 - 0. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by BugaTor, with 69 percent of the ball.

Josef Feutchmann came close to levelling the score 58 minutes into the game, as he was set up with a through ball coming in from the left, but his shot hit the post. Things were going to get worse for the visitors. Aniceto Peuccelle squirmed through their central defence after 79 minutes, increasing the lead to 2 - 0. The White-Blue players could smell victory in the air. Oscar Sønderlund wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for Selmar Fehringer after 80 minutes. After 85 minutes Valentin Lambert seized on an opportunistic attack from the right, and scored for BugaTor making it 2 - 1. The coach of White-Blue was happy with the game so far, but still wanted to change the line up. After 89 minutes, Mimmo Della Martora came on for Mark Rannefeld. BugaTor enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 69 percent of possession.

White-Blue's top performer was clearly Wender Beeckmans. On the other hand, Siegfried Kraß's play was disheartening. Most important BugaTor player was Valentin Lambert. However, Lars Gaumert made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 2 - 1.
