They fielded: Gregnanin - Szast, Kühnel, Buh, Circelli, Di Salvo - Lölhöffel, Melerowitz - Ristić, Mpampoulas, Lübek.

VERONA decided to use a 3-5-2 set up. The following players had been chosen: Leuven - Berthonneau, van der Werf, Bártík - Rullo, Šípek, Králík, Síkora, Žugić - Reyes, Trávníček.

portnavalo clearly had decided to counter-attack when they could, taking advantage of their world class level with that tactic. Mihael Žugić had a good try after 5 minutes, coming in on a fine move from the left, but the ball went wide. VERONA took the lead after 11 minutes making the score 0 - 1. Stanislav Šípek placed the ball out of reach for the home side's keeper after a fine move, coming in from the left. The visitors' René Králík took advantage of a misunderstanding between the home side's goalie and centre backs 19 minutes into the match. 0 - 2 for VERONA. VERONA's Luis Reyes proved that he's been around on a football pitch before, when he took advantage of a few moments of confusion in the opposition's defensive line and elegantly scored for 0 - 3. portnavalo almost scored after a swift counterattack 27 minutes into the game, but Filip Ristić put the shot from the left flank just outside the goal. After 30 minutes a combination in the middle resulted in a through ball for Daniel van der Werf who increased VERONA's lead to 0 - 4. By now, the players in VERONA felt that victory was guaranteed and began to play it safe, focusing on defence and not risking too much going forward. The home crowd cheered when, after 31 minutes, Svatoslav Síkora's charge up the middle resulted in the keeper making one of his best saves of the day. 0 - 4 was the score after the first half. VERONA enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 63 percent of possession.

The visitors almost increased their lead after 53 minutes when a sweetly hit free kick looked like it was heading for the top corner. However the keeper managed to get a fingertip to it, sending it over the bar. portnavalo needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 72 minutes Ciro Di Salvo made way for Tobi Weymarn. After 74 minutes, portnavalo used a short break in the game to take new instructions from their coach. The bench was restless, and with 75 minutes passed portnavalo's coach gave Esko Ylinen the opportunity the player had been hoping for. Alen Buh reluctantly left the field. With 75 minutes played, the portnavalo coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. Hans Liljenström came on, Nikolaos Mpampoulas had to leave the fray. VERONA claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 54 percent.

Most important portnavalo player was Bo Lübek. However, Salvatore Gregnanin made a disastrous appearance. VERONA's best player was Richard Trávníček. Radim Bártík turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 0 - 4.
