It was an exceptionally sunny day for the crowd that came out to the stadium today. The intense heat made it hard for players relying on strength or speed to shine. On the other hand, it provided perfect conditions for the more technical players. Lineup: Watson - Samson, Belodedić - Bastos, Boogert, Majszak, Niemann, Arpa - Al Jalahma, Bicho, Graham.

They fielded: Jora - Marinov, Štrafėlas - Cunha Silva, Veirman, Koskinen, Uverskiy, Berraja - Berrocal, Tapia, Hötte.

Both teams came out with a similar approach to the match, having chosen to start with a 2-5-3 formation. Spursmans saw most attack opportunities on the wings, taking advantage of their divine (+2) level with that tactic. Nathaniel Watson looked great 13 minutes into the match after stopping a shot from the middle of the penalty area from the visitors' Adib Berraja. Dmitry Uverskiy came close to putting the visiting team one up 14 minutes into the match, following a solo raid down the middle, but Nathaniel Watson managed to tip the ball to a corner. Spursmans took the lead 32 minutes into the game by 1 - 0, as Željko Belodedić elegantly received a long range pass through the middle, finishing off with a half-volley shot just below the bar. With 36 minutes played, the visitors could have drawn level after Tomas Štrafėlas came through the middle, but his shot went wide. Cheers filled the stadium as Joel Graham broke through the visitors' central defence to put away the ball to increase the lead to 2 - 0 to Spursmans. Dmitry Uverskiy's fine footwork caused nothing but headaches for Henk Boogert. The keeper wasn't fooled however, and confidently scooped up the ball. Spursmans's Luís Bastos was shown a yellow card after 43 minutes for slicing down an opponent. It was 2 - 0 at the break. Possession in this half belonged to Spursmans, who controlled the ball 55 percent of the time.

Spursmans put themselves up 3 - 0 when Muhsin Al Jalahma broke through on the right, leaving the entire defence trailing in his wake. Things were deteriorating for the away team as Spursmans scored another to make it 4 - 0 after a left side attack resulted in a goal for Henk Boogert after 69 minutes. The home side's Frans Arpa came close to extending the lead 71 minutes into the game. His shot came in from the right hand side but Marius Jora managed to save it with an unbelievable reaction stop. Spursmans's Frans Arpa got himself booked for a foul. Chesterton fought on and, after 80 minutes, Vasil Marinov was able to reduce the deficit to 4 - 1 after some excellent moves on the right side were finished off with an incredibly clever chip. The players were tired, but when the referee announced that there would be 1 minute of added time they, nonetheless, welcomed the extra opportunity to make an impact. The match ends 4 - 1. Spursmans claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 56 percent.

The most dominating Spursmans player was without a doubt Muhsin Al Jalahma. However, Nathaniel Watson made a disastrous appearance. Jami Koskinen performed admirably for Chesterton. Tomas Štrafėlas turned in a dismal performance, however.
