It was to be a contest between two different football philosophies, since the home team started the game with a 4-5-1 formation while the visitors instead opted for a 3-5-2. Csillagok clearly preferred using their magnificent ability to attack in the middle today. Koreps's game plan was to sit back and absorb the pressure, then use their excellent ability to break on the counter whenever possible. This was a good period for the visitors, with several opportunities to take the lead, particularly when Salvo Pitotti slipped through the left defense to come up alone against Sándor Stark, but the home side's keeper showed his lightning-fast reflexes. After more pushing and shoving than a pack of helicopter moms trying to get the last appointment for their snowflakes to see the Easter Bunny, Csillagok's Elmo Sharpe finally got himself booked for a foul. Salvo Pitotti was in no condition to play on. He left the field limping after 33 minutes, with his right thigh bandaged. The replacement for the injured player was András Lődör. As the captain was no longer on the field, Juan Medrano Ruiz took over the role for Koreps. The home crowd breathed a collective sigh of relief when Krzysztof Pądzik was unable to give the visitors the go-ahead goal after his attack from the left in minute 36. 0 - 0 was the halftime score. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Csillagok, with an impressive 52 percent possession of the ball.

With the clock showing 46 minutes, the fourth official held up the substitution board. Elmo Sharpe looked to see that it was his number in red, so he made his way over to the sideline and swapped out for Holm Kerbach, though he would have liked to continue. With 53 minutes played Anacondo Cambón almost gave the home side the lead with a clever free kick, but the visitors' Daniel-Cristian Oprişoi was onto it, grabbing the would-be breakthrough ball. With 55 minutes of the match played, a comedy of errors by the home side gave the visitors a chance at the lead, but Gonzalo Rubio Escudero, after dashing down on goal from the left and finding himself with only the keeper to beat, sliced his shot horribly wide. Csillagok players heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their wing attacks to the middle instead. The visiting Juan Medrano Ruiz was booed thoroughly by the home crowd 67 minutes into the game, after he broke through the middle and scored, resulting in the visitors taking the lead. 0 - 1 was the score. The match ends 0 - 1. Csillagok set the tempo, maintaining 54 percent of possession.

David Andreoletti performed admirably for Csillagok. Good thing Cene Zamuda isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. Koreps's best player was Gonzalo Rubio Escudero. I can't remember András Lődör ever having a worse night than he just had.
