nebavi 0 - 6 Wagus

Overcast weather free of rain made for a turnout of 17950 at alianz arena today. Felix Slováček was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Lars-Erik Johansson and Jian Chun-Sung. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! nebavi will go to battle in a 5-3-1 formation. Starters: Yeshua - Saka, Commisso, Bertrand, Rönnquist, Malmborg - Osuna, Izu, Scheibel - Bakhin.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Wagus decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. They fielded: Oniţiu - Ortak, Metsänkylä, Tuţă - van den Berg, Klik, Bunluerit, Dobre, Patsoureas - Bonté, Géry.

It was an obvious ambition of Wagus to play a wide game with their titanic ability to attack down the wings. Z. Yeshua looked great 5 minutes in after stopping a shot by the visitors' A. Bonté. After 7 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as nebavi found themselves out of position and their organization level dropped to weak. Wagus had several good opportunities to take the lead, especially 10 minutes in when P. Géry found himself alone with Z. Yeshua who managed a block. 11 minutes into the game, nebavi seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a weak level of organization. Wagus took the lead 18 minutes into the game, making the score 0 - 1 after some elegant movement down the middle. M. van den Berg was the scorer. The home fans looked somber as they watched their team give up another goal, this one coming from their right as P. Géry put one through the keeper's legs. 0 - 2 after 24 minutes. 0 - 2 was the halftime score. Wagus were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 80 percent of possession.

nebavi's coach had to raise his voice a little, but he also managed to raise his players' organization to passable after reviewing his strategy. After 62 minutes, Wagus's M. van den Berg burst through the central defense and let loose a cannonball of a shot, scoring for 0 - 3. A thrilling play through the middle after 70 minutes gave Wagus's A. Bonté a chance to increase the lead, and he happily obliged. The score was then 0 - 4. After 71 minutes, Wagus sent a free kick in high over the penalty box. In what looked like a well-rehearsed move, the ball was headed backwards and reached D. Patsoureas, who had plenty of time to shoot and score - 0 - 5. Confident in their lead, Wagus's players relaxed and focused more on defending the lead than increasing it. 76 minutes into the game, nebavi seemed a little tentative in their play as their organization fell to passable. The away team's P. Klik took advantage of a mistake on the home side's right after 77 minutes increasing Wagus's lead to 0 - 6. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Wagus would have 79 percent possession in this half was spot on!

V. Bakhin performed admirably for nebavi. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by Z. Yeshua today. Most important Wagus player was P. Géry. Speaking of stinking up the place, R. Oniţiu sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The match ends 0 - 6.
