Overcast weather free of rain made for a crowd turnout of 3800 at The Cemetery today. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . A 3-4-3 alignment was the formation of choice for Gdansk. Starters: Wojdyr - Bierła, Popek, Pawlak - Roszyk, Galicki, Poździk, Nolewajka - Bronisz, Dusiński, Brunhild.

Mecánico had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. They fielded: Cabrera - Mele, Bunbury, La Rotta - Contreras, Erens, Miguel Valle, Notter, Laba - Juola, Juárez.

The wings were the focus of most of Gdansk's attacks on this day, taking advantage of their titanic level with that tactic. The crowd gasped as Tom Erens of Mecánico was flattened by an opponent after 7 minutes and had to be carried off. Aurelio Velandia came in off the bench. There was concern in the stands when, at the 8 minute mark, Gdansk's Adam Bronisz hit the ground hard, but he refused the attention of the trainer and rejoined his teammates on the pitch. Some quick footwork on the left side of the field 9 minutes into the match left Mecánico's Javier Hernán Bunbury completely free to score. 0 - 1 for the visitors. After 11 minutes, Konrad Galicki got through on the right and was very close to equalising for the home side, but didn't get the shot away. A defender managed to keep the ball from crossing the goal-line after a curling shot coming in from the right from Ariel Juárez after 27 minutes, and prevented Mecánico from going up another goal. Adam Bronisz charged down the left and had a wonderful opportunity to score the equaliser for Gdansk, but the shot went well wide of the goal. With 35 minutes played, Kleofas Bierła of Gdansk fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. Content with how the game was proceeding, the Mecánico coach let Tancredo Reyes replace Ariel Juárez after 44 minutes. It was 0 - 1 at the break. Gdansk had most of the ball, with 53 percent of possession.

Maybe due to the uphill battle the team was facing, the Gdansk manager looked to change things around. After 46 minutes, Leon Roszyk and Konrad Galicki swapped positions on the field. After 46 minutes of the match, the manager still hoped to turn things around. Adam Bronisz was ordered to assume a different position on the pitch. He took the place of Hanns-Walter Brunhild, who in turn replaced his team mate. The referee showed Mecánico's Kiko Miguel Valle the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. No matter how hard he tried, Adam Bronisz just couldn't get his shot past the visitors' right side defence after 59 minutes. After 70 minutes of play, Kleofas Bierła evened things up for Gdansk with an impressive goal coming up the middle. 1 - 1. Gdansk had a chance to take the lead after Kleofas Bierła's dazzling drive up the left, but the opportunity fizzled out as his shot went just over the bar after 79 minutes. Possession in this half belonged to Gdansk, who controlled the ball 53 percent of the time.

Still tied after 90 minutes, the match continued into extra time. Gdansk had a magnificent opportunity after 94 minutes as Leon Roszyk hit the ball hard from the edge of the penalty box. However, the shot went wide. The home side put themselves ahead 2 - 1 after 105 minutes courtesy of a breakthrough from Hanns-Walter Brunhild, who scored with a stunning volley following a cross from the right wing. This put an end to extra time, making Gdansk the winners. Gdansk's best player was Norbert 'The Rocket' Dusiński. Stanisław Poździk turned in a dismal performance, however. Tancredo Reyes performed admirably for Mecánico. However, Sämi Notter made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 2 - 1.
