Wikings 1 - 0 B 1988

Dark skies made the crowd of 42932 at Valhalla a little nervous, but the rain held off. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Chester Kocian and . Wikings decided to use a 3-5-2 set up. They fielded: Jørgensen - Serup-Nørgaard, Mayerhofer, Frandsen - Conrad, Havsteen-Mikkelsen, Olsen, Vinkler, Spindler - Palmland, Spottag.

B 1988 tactics involved an interesting 3-5-2 combination. The following players took the field: Haren - Prokovas, Cioci, Eilertsen - Edenmo, Kontić, Lemström, Lederer, Coyne - Jacobsen, Frank Jensen.

Down the middle came Andrej Kontić, making a fantastic play that nearly had B 1988 take the lead after 16 minutes, but Robin Jørgensen preserved the tie. Wikings's Tonni Frandsen was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 17 minutes. B 1988 had several good opportunities to take the lead, especially 18 minutes in when Nicu-Octavian Cioci came up alone against Robin Jørgensen who managed a block. Wikings almost scored after a swift counterattack 19 minutes into the game, but Stefan Palmland put the shot from the left flank just outside the goal. Wikings's Hugo Olsen was shown a yellow card after 24 minutes for slicing down an opponent. At 33 minutes played, Mark Spottag came in from the right with the intention of giving Wikings the lead, but his rocket of a shot rattled the crossbar. It was 0 - 0 at the break. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by B 1988, with 51 percent of the ball.

Making his way up the middle 59 minutes into the match, Joes Havsteen-Mikkelsen almost managed to squeeze a goal past the visitors' keeper, but the alert Danny Haren blocked it to keep the score level. 60 minutes into the match, the referee signalled for a Wikings substitution. Lars Ankerdal came on for Mads Spindler. After 60 minutes, the B 1988 coach had a quick word about the tactical set-up and decided to try another approach. After 75 minutes, the B 1988 coach wanted to see a new face on the pitch, waving Peter Edenmo off the field. Emílio Miranda took his place. Given a free kick in a difficult position after 76 minutes, B 1988 tried a variation that they had practised in training. The kick was sent into the area just in front of the keeper. However, the defence were on their toes and allowed no space for a finish. After 82 minutes, Mark Spottag came in from the right, feinted, then sped past the off-balance defender to make the score 1 - 0, giving Wikings the lead. B 1988 enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 51 percent of possession.

Most important Wikings player was Joes Havsteen-Mikkelsen. Lars Ankerdal was a disappointment, however. B 1988's top performer was clearly Anders Frank Jensen. Emílio Miranda on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 1 - 0.
