Memo and Sergio Cidoncha were deployed in midfield while Carlos Calvo and Jerry Mawia handled the flanks. Ferrando started the game with two strikers up front in the form of Pablo Morgado and Md. Mobashir.
It was UD San Sebastián de Los Reyes that broke the deadlock as Sergio Castel scored from a direct free-kick. Jamshedpur FC made wholesome changes at the break with six new outfield players entering the field in the second half.
Searching for an equalizer, Jamshedpur FC tried their best to level the proceedings but conceded two more in the final 20 minutes of the game. Andy Escudero and Giovanni Navarro got on the scoresheet for the Spanish third division side.
