An overview of the battlefield, Swedes on the left, the Danish defensive work between the woods and the Saxon camp on the right.
The Danish brigade had suffered heavy losses and had been re-organised into 4 under strength battalions. They had almost completed a redoubt covering the approach to Sagasu from the south, but the northern face was unfinished. In the camp are a brigade of Saxon infantry and a field gun. To the west, a brigade of Saxon cavalry. Once all the Saxon units are activated the coalition commander can start to roll for the arrival of the Russian infantry brigade, which will appear to the east of the camp.

Initiative lay with the Swedes, but their first move was cautious,meaning the Danes had a chance to fire a volley before the inevitable Swedish charge. However, the Danish fire inflicted little damage, unlike the Swedish response which disordered the Danes facing them. Encouraged, the Swedish infantry charged home losing a few more casualties to the closing volley. Against the odds the Danes managed to hold the defences and prolong the melee. Other Swedish units now began to move to assault the sides of the redoubt whilst the much lauded Swedish cavalry entered the field.
