Clear skies welcomed the 1711 spectators who had made their way to Stade Monica Lewinsky. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . Theophile tactics involved an interesting 5-3-2 combination. The following players took the field: Lemaître - Lacombe, Bourgeois, Lambert, Delahaie, Caron - Tarantino, Chevalier, Maillard - Reuze, Ikäheimo.

Garden had chosen a strategic 2-5-3 formation. Lineup: de Zwaan - Beukers, Bude - Ploeger, Hese, Muller, Houweling, Donk - van Ardennen, Francke, Bonnink.

For their match strategy, Theophile had decided to use their outstanding ability to counter-attack whenever possible. Garden displayed their disastrous ability to play creatively. 5 minutes of the match played, and a comedy of errors by the home side gave the visitors a chance at the lead, but Sjaak Bude, after finding himself dashing down on goal from the left with only the keeper to beat, sliced his shot horribly wide. Sikko Ploeger acted with superior experience when, 24 minutes into the match, he predicted a pass, intercepted it and then finished off with a goal. 0 - 1 for Garden! Garden increased their lead after 28 minutes when Kas Donk broke through on the right, upping the score to 0 - 2, much to the home crowd's dismay. Sjaak Bude received some harsh words from his coach after he acted foolishly 34 minutes into the match, probably out of lack of experience, and almost let an opponent score. After 36 minutes, following yet another great corner, Arto Ikäheimo's flick on at the near post reached Yann Delahaie, who was just wide with his snapshot - the ball went out for a goal kick. Nicolas Lemaître got a fingertip on Martijn Muller's shot from the left 37 minutes in, and managed to keep the visitors from going up another goal. A defender managed to keep the ball from crossing the goal-line after a curling shot coming in from the right from Sjaak Bude after 39 minutes, and prevented Garden from going up another goal. With 40 minutes played, Nicolas Maillard of Theophile fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. Theophile's Vincenzo Tarantino found himself alone on the left side 42 minutes into the match and laid down a perfect shot - right into the arms of the keeper! Halftime score was 0 - 2. Possession in this half belonged to Garden, who controlled the ball 63 percent of the time.

The bench was restless, and with 49 minutes passed Theophile's coach gave Julien Édouard the opportunity the player had been hoping for. Jérôme Reuze reluctantly left the field. With 51 minutes played, the Theophile coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. Denis Attard came on, Grégory Chevalier had to leave the fray. Theophile were great at switching from defence to attack, and after 72 minutes, Nicolas Maillard swept through the middle on a counterattack, making the score 1 - 2. Sikko Ploeger of Garden received a yellow card after 73 minutes for unsportsmanlike behaviour. Ralf Bonnink of Garden took advantage of a mistake on the home side's right after 75 minutes which increased the away team's lead to 1 - 3. The home crowd was given a certain amount of consolation when Arto Ikäheimo scored after a brilliant midfield combination through the centre, reducing the lead to 2 - 3. Theophile's Maxime Lacombe was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 78 minutes. Theophile's Arto Ikäheimo showed his experience after 83 minutes, as he expertly set himself up to take advantage of a rebound off the crossbar, but his shot was tipped harmlessly out of the way. Had it not been for one of the home defenders, Kas Donk would have put Garden up another goal 85 minutes into the match with his audacious lob from the right wing. After 87 minutes, Garden's Henk Francke burst through the central defence and let loose a cannonball of a shot, scoring for 2 - 4. Garden enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 68 percent of possession.

Arto Ikäheimo performed admirably for Theophile. However, Matthieu Bourgeois made a disastrous appearance. The most dominating Garden player was without a doubt Henk Francke. Matthijs de Zwaan was a disappointment, however. The match ends 2 - 4.
