Magestick took the lead after 3 minutes making the score 0 - 1. Julio Guerrero placed the ball out of reach for the home side's keeper after a fine move, coming in from the left. The pressing tactics used by Magestick were successful as the ball remained close to the half way line at all times. 37 minutes into the match, the visitors put themselves ahead 0 - 2 as Ramón Quiroz finished off an attack from the left with a spectacular scissors kick. At 38 minutes into the game, lesprit's Sadi Barreiro deftly knocked the ball home after an impressive run down the left, reducing the visitors' lead to 1 - 2. Some fine passing in the middle of the pitch, carving open the away defence, should have led to a goal for lesprit, but Bachar Hadji's shot went over the bar. 1 - 2 was the halftime score. lesprit had most of the ball, with 51 percent of possession.

His replacement was Akwli Boulâich. The Magestick coach adjusted their lineup with 71 minutes gone. Amaro Loureiro and Sebastián Pozo assumed each other's positions. After 75 minutes, the Magestick coach made a sign to Julio Guerrero, who soon changed positions with Alvyras Sokolskis. David Porcheron caught everyone by surprise with a unexpected volley after 75 minutes. Alvyras Sokolskis was perfectly placed to take advantage of the play, but unfortunately, he was as surprised as anyone and couldn't finish for Magestick. Making his way up the middle 76 minutes into the match, Søren Cohen almost managed to squeeze a goal past the visitors' keeper, but the alert William Kaviedes blocked it to keep the score level. Magestick pressed their opponents, causing the game to be a bit of a stalemate at times. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by lesprit, with 63 percent of the ball.

As neither team had managed to win, extra time was called. Against a lesser team, lesprit could very well have succeeded with their smart indirect free kick routine after 98 minutes. A trio of passes took the ball all the way past the defenders, but by then the intended recipient was already blocked off and the keeper could make a leisurely save. lesprit fans held their breath as Sadi Barreiro scampered down the left side. He successfully avoided all challenges and cracked home the shot for 3 - 2! The most dominating lesprit player was without a doubt Sadi Barreiro. Akwli Boulâich turned in a dismal performance, however. Magestick's best player was William Kaviedes. However, Sebastián Pozo made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 3 - 2.
