The 4747 fans in attendance at Rosenhügel were roasting in the hot sun. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . Celtic decided to use a 5-4-1 set up. They fielded: Moyà - Judge, Bänteli, Romkin, Matei, Binchy - McColl, Bocicor, Madureira, Atzeni - Loftus.

diambars started off with a 3-4-3 lineup. The following players took the field: Ochoa - Veseckas, bin Sofian, Rednic - Qualy, Guillet, Delger, Gherea - Lasalandra, Žlebek, Roulier.

Celtic tried to focus their attacks down the middle, taking advantage of their outstanding level with that tactic. 1 minutes into the match, the diambars manager wanted to try a new tactic, and the players loyally obliged. Celtic had a good opportunity to take the lead as Raphael Judge came up the left side, but he struck the ball weakly and it went straight into the arms of Rodrigo Fabián Ochoa. Otto Oiva was called on to replace Celtic's Al McColl after 11 minutes following a nasty collision. Celtic were determined to attack in the middle, even their wing attacks ended up centrally. They were singing the praises of Florin Matei 18 minutes into the match after his speculative chip from the middle of the penalty box found its way over the visitors' keeper to make the score 1 - 0 to Celtic. Celtic players heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their wing attacks to the middle instead. After 28 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by Otto Oiva might have resulted in another goal for Celtic. However, Rodrigo Fabián Ochoa made a spectacular save. After 29 minutes, the visitors levelled the scores after Romain Guillet made it through the middle and struck home to make it 1 - 1. The teams went for the halftime break at 1 - 1. Possession in this half belonged to Celtic, who controlled the ball 64 percent of the time.

46 minutes into the game, Celtic wanted to bring some new energy to their game. Florin Matei gave Kashif Khalil a quick hug as he left the field. The diambars free kick 53 minutes into the match seemed wasted, as the shot was both short and off target. But was this actually a plan? The ball landed at the feet of Mantrimas Veseckas, who was completely unmarked in the box. That's 1 - 2! After 61 minutes of play, Otto Oiva equalised for Celtic after an elegant attack from the right. After 63 minutes diambars's Nicolae Gherea limped slightly after a late challenge, but he was able to continue. Celtic's Auguste Loftus tried to break through in the middle repeatedly, but couldn't get past the visitors' defenders. Raphael Judge caused the crowd to go mental with his goal up the middle after 72 minutes. This gave Celtic the 3 - 2 lead. Auguste Loftus could have increased the lead after 74 minutes, but his shot hit the post after a nice combination in the middle of the park. Celtic enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 66 percent of possession.

The most dominating Celtic player was without a doubt Libânio Madureira. Orlando Bänteli turned in a dismal performance, however. Most important diambars player was Marlo Roulier. Petre Rednic on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 3 - 2.
