Egri Csillagok FC trundled out to the pitch in a 4-5-1 formation. The visitors, BudaVár FC, chose to start the game with a 3-5-2 lineup. Like a mighty wizard in the hellish lair of the balrog, Csillagok is aiming to smother the Hephaestian flames of attack with passable skill. Trespass is forbidden! Alas, Balrog, you shall not pass! This was a good period for the visitors, with several opportunities to take the lead, particularly when Arno Pukallus slipped through the left defense to come up alone against Kevin Szépvölgyi, but the home side's keeper showed his lightning-fast reflexes. With the clock showing 14 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of Csillagok resulted in a counter-attack that was smoothly brought under control by Elmo Sharpe in the center of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. Some quick footwork on the left side of the field 15 minutes into the match left BudaVár's Arno Pukallus completely free to score. 0 - 1 for the visitors. Anacondo Cambón missed a penalty 28 minutes in that would have brought the teams level. Csillagok's ability to press all over the field paid off frequently. The crowd roared in delight as Cene Zamuda finished off a spectacular series of plays up the middle to even the score for Csillagok after 38 minutes. 1 - 1. BudaVár's Iván Boldóczky was shown a yellow card after 41 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Kevin Szépvölgyi was unable to continue, following a slight injury to his left knee after 41 minutes. The player that took his place was Gergely Hajgató. 1 - 1 was the halftime score. Csillagok set the tempo, maintaining 51 percent of possession.

At this time in the match, Csillagok were using their skill at pressing to successfully stifle the game. Arno Pukallus came close to putting the visiting team one up 73 minutes into the match, following a solo raid down the middle, but Gergely Hajgató managed to tip the ball over. A mistake by the home side's central defense after 77 minutes allowed Giovanni Patané to score for BudaVár. The visitors have the lead, 1 - 2. The bench was restless, and with 77 minutes gone Csillagok's coach gave Victorien Boquet the opportunity to try to change the team's fortunes. Cene Zamuda reluctantly left the field. The fourth official announced that there would be 1 minutes of stoppage time, giving fans a slim hope that their team could get one more attack in before this was all over. The match ends 1 - 2. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Csillagok, with an impressive 53 percent possession of the ball.

Adrià Murgades performed admirably for Csillagok. Speaking of stinking up the place, Gergely Hajgató sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. BudaVár's best player was Arno Pukallus. Good thing Tonino Lavagna isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance.
