It was an impressive opening from The Herons, when Higuaín found the net, at 23 minutes. However, their lead didn’t last for long, Brenner producing an equaliser, 28 minutes in, bringing Cin level. However, each side looked hungry to win and Inter then found the back of the net, 37 minutes in thanks to Higuaín, taking the score to 2-1. However, their lead was short-lived, as an equalizer from Brenner in the 40th minute, brought Orange and Blue level. Inter in turn, then responded just before halftime increasing their lead with a hat trick effort from Higuaín, finishing the first half 3-2.

Cin took the lead in the second half, with a goal from Vázquez, 81 minutes in. The momentum was now with Cin, who then scored again through a 2nd effort from Vázquez at the 86 minute mark to establish a 4-3. In the end though, their lead was short lived, as Mcvey equalised for The Herons just before the final whistle. The final result, Inter 4, Cin 4.
