Buriram United F.C. started the game in a 3-5-2 formation, whereas Camoatíes lined up in a 5-3-2. A utopian level of counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of Camoatíes. A counter-attack by Camoatíes after 3 minutes could have resulted in a goal, but Matteo Pignatale, coming in on the left, waited too long to shoot. After 5 minutes, Camoatíes's Matteo Pignatale surprised everyone as he managed to intercept a pass intended for the opposing keeper and flip it up and in, making the score 0 - 1. The crowd roared in delight as Alexander Saulin finished off a spectacular series of plays up the middle to even the score for Buriram after 25 minutes. 1 - 1. Răzvan Cernov gave Buriram the 2 - 1 lead, as he successfully challenged the guests' central defenders, then placed the ball at the keeper's right post – what a clinical finish! The home side's Răzvan Cernov came close to extending the lead after 34 minutes. His shot came in from the right but Luigi Grana managed to push it wide with his fingertips. Halftime score was 2 - 1. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Buriram would have 65 percent possession in this half was spot on!

A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased Buriram's lead to 3 - 1 as Pedro Caliens finished it off clinically, firing the shot from a terrible angle. After 70 minutes, Camoatíes substituted Juan Pablo Bonavena for Anders Bredblad, hoping for a quick impact on the field. Camoatíes needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 70 minutes Hugo Oscar Dáscola made way for Alexander Tantsev. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, Camoatíes's Pedro Hipólito Rodríguez was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the field after 70 minutes. 慧 (Satoshi) 三好 (Miyoshi) was given a chance to change things around. As quick as a flash, Alexander Tantsev of Camoatíes lost his man and passed the ball to the wide-open 慧 (Satoshi) 三好 (Miyoshi) who easily hit it home to make it 3 - 2. Alexander Tantsev stunned the crowd with a brilliant counter-attack from the left, giving Camoatíes the goal to make it 3 - 3. Making his way up the middle after 79 minutes, Paolo Paschini almost managed to sneak a goal past the visitors' keeper, but Luigi Grana was ready and blocked it to keep the score level. As the match nears its end, the referee deemed it appropriate to add 2 minutes as stoppage time. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Buriram's Elmar Schönböcken got himself booked. With no winner at the end of regulation, the match went into extra time. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Buriram, with an impressive 69 percent possession of the ball.

Buriram had a chance to take the lead after Paolo Paschini's dazzling drive up the left, but the opportunity fizzled away as his shot went just over the bar with 107 minutes played. The counter-attacks of Camoatíes were deadly and 108 minutes into the game, Marco Antonio Caetano controlled a long pass from the right flank and finished to make it 3 - 4. With 109 minutes played, Camoatíes's Dante Joaquín Mentruyt received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. Buriram's Alexander Saulin was shown a yellow card after 111 minutes for slicing down an opponent. The match ends 3 - 4. Buriram's best player was Alexander Saulin. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by Enrique Gassol today. The most outstanding Camoatíes player was without a doubt Alexander Tantsev. I can't remember Matteo Pignatale ever having a worse night than he just had.
