Overcast weather free of rain made for a crowd turnout of 1895 at Paklena Arena today. Jørn Snogdal was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Dominique Dérouin. The match took place on neutral ground. Sicilia had chosen a strategic 3-4-3 formation. They fielded: Gramme - Huijgen, Colblad, Carregal - Zier, Etsuko, Veratti, Brokholm - Pendl, Omerović, Aro.

A 2-5-3 alignment was the formation of choice for Fontana. The following players took the field: Elefante - Dutrieux, Costanza - Dubois, Grafite, Vietzke, Gerau, Radulović - Bayerkuhnlein, Lozica, Kúrdzhiev.

Alexandre Brandão Alexandre was called on to replace Fontana's Christian Dubois after 10 minutes following a nasty collision. A mistake by the home side's central defence after 27 minutes allowed Oreste Costanza to score for Fontana. The scoreboard now read 0 - 1. After 32 minutes a combination in the middle resulted in a through ball for Jorge Emiliano Grafite who increased Fontana's lead to 0 - 2. With 34 minutes played, Fontana's well-worked indirect free kick caused havoc in the penalty area, and when the ball eventually fell to Hinnerk Bayerkuhnlein he gleefully slotted the ball home to make it 0 - 3. Sicilia had a brilliant opportunity to reply as Matthies Zier received a high ball from the right, striking the ball in the air. Only Manuel Elefante's reflexes saved him. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 3. Fontana enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 57 percent of possession.

59 minutes into the match, the visitors put themselves ahead 0 - 4 as Krunoslav Lozica finished off an attack from the left with a spectacular scissors kick. Ivan Radulović of Fontana was booked for kicking the ball away after the whistle. Fontana's Alexandre Brandão Alexandre made it through the home team's defence on the right hand side 76 minutes into the match. After rounding the keeper, he only had to place the ball in the unguarded goal when a defender slid in and cleared the ball off the line. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Oreste Costanza got himself booked. The manager of Fontana was not happy. The situation leading to Sicilia's penalty 82 minutes into the match will be much debated after the game ends, but the competent Niklas Colblad didn't hesitate to make the score 1 - 4. Just a few inches to the right, and the visitors could have had a goal 83 minutes into the match. Gombert Gerau surely wishes he could do that free kick over again. 83 minutes in, Fontana's Jorge Emiliano Grafite received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. Sicilia's Diogo Carregal had to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines, after twisting his ankle with 85 minutes having been played. Giacomo Caggiula was the replacement. The visitors' Felix Alexander Vietzke took advantage of a misunderstanding between the home side's goalie and centre backs 86 minutes into the match. 1 - 5 for Fontana. Confident in their lead, Fontana's players relaxed and focused more on defending the lead than increasing it. Fontana had most of the ball, with 59 percent of possession.

Sicilia's best player was Gian Maria Veratti. On the other hand, Niklas Colblad's play was disheartening. Fontana's top performer was clearly Borislav Kúrdzhiev. However, Ivan Radulović made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 1 - 5.
