69048 spectators had found their way to Zonquldûk, despite the heavy rain. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! The blacks will go to battle in a 3-4-3 formation. They fielded: Daniel - Ayerra, Paul, Caini - Dürrenmatt, Jin ho, Vitányi, Hansson - Letov, Hälikkä, Groppo.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Tayfun decided to go with a 4-4-2 formation. The following players had been selected: Perian - Onko, Sandberg, Belka, Neme - Duţescu, Oprescu, Stoian, Vătafu - Vasiliu, Dascălu.

Hold your ground, Tayfun! Hold your ground! A day may come when excellent pressing fails, an hour of desperate goals and shattered shin guards, but it is not this day! A. Hälikkä did not have a good day today, often losing his footing on the muddy field. Tayfun pressed their opponents, causing the game to be a bit of a deadlock at times. With 42 minutes on the clock, the home side was awarded a penalty. The visitors protested wildly but the referee was adamant. A. Ayerra easily put the 1 - 0 goal away to hand the lead to The blacks. V. Caini seemed to be defying gravity as he elegantly headed in a goal for The blacks after a corner kick that was nicely executed by A. Ayerra. That makes it 2 - 0. The crowd roared its approval when Y. Daniel somehow managed to block what seemed to be a certain goal by Tayfun's M. Stoian 44 minutes into the match. The blacks added another goal to their lead as S. Letov struck home for 3 - 0 after an attack from the left set him up unmarked in front of the keeper. By now, the players of The blacks felt that victory was a sure thing and began to play it safe, focusing on defense and not risking too much going forward. 3 - 0 was the halftime score. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that The blacks would have 51 percent possession in this half was spot on!

The blacks's A. Ayerra wanted to play on, but after 46 minutes the decision was made to give J. Kotowski a chance in his place. Coming in from the right, S. Letov almost managed to score another goal for The blacks, but his header was kept out by the lightning fast reflexes of the visiting keeper. After 63 minutes The blacks tried to use their counter-attacking skills. Unfortunately, S. Letov's shot sailed wide after his break down the right. 65 minutes into the game, The blacks were awarded a penalty that V. Caini converted into a bigger lead without so much as a how-do-you-do to the visiting keeper. It's 4 - 0 now! The home team's lead was reduced to 4 - 1 after Tayfun's R. Belka took advantage of a misunderstanding in the center of the defense. 69 minutes in, E. Vasiliu made an incredible run up the middle and nearly reduced the home side's lead, but Y. Daniel refused to let the ball slip by him. The referee showed Tayfun's M. Neme the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Y. Daniel was the unlucky victim and couldn't continue the game, so The blacks's M. Darwish had to come off the bench. As The blacks's captain went off, he handed the armband to T. Jin ho. The score became 5 - 1 with 76 minutes played, when The blacks were given a penalty. V. Caini made no mistake and increased the home lead. One, two, three goals! That completed a hattrick for V. Caini. AH! AH! AH! The blacks set the tempo, maintaining 52 percent of possession.

S. Letov performed admirably for The blacks. Good thing P. Hansson isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. Tayfun's top performer was clearly I. Dascălu. Speaking of stinking up the place, B. Onko sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The match ends 5 - 1.
