42323 spectators had come to portare fiori a ilbego this cloudy day. Sylvester Hutter was the appointed referee. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Maraviglia decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. The following players took the field: Ney - Vayssie, Labura, Laffitte - Schleuniger, Schjølberg, Berninsone, Nalić, Stoicescu - Braamhaar, Lupo.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Manzo_Team formed up in a 3-5-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. Lineup: Rudian - Rondón, Garst, Coello - Nieva, Entenza, Camilli, Ramović, Cuevas - Masetti, Merlini.

Maraviglia saw most attack opportunities on the wings by using their utopian ability to push the attack in the right direction. Maraviglia had a good opportunity to attack in the middle, but remembered their instructions to go down the wing instead. Maraviglia were very close to putting themselves one up with 26 minutes gone as R. Schleuniger got through on the left, but a lapse in concentration sent the ball wide. Players in Maraviglia heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their central attacks to the wings instead. It was obvious that Maraviglia had instructions to attack on the wings instead of in the middle. Slack defending gave Maraviglia a chance to take the lead with 33 minutes played, but M. Vayssie's cross from the left flank was met gratefully by the opposition who cleared it to safety. With 40 minutes played, L. Stoicescu came in from the right with the intention of giving Maraviglia the lead, but his rocket of a shot could only rattle the crossbar. The referee showed Maraviglia's M. Berninsone the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 0. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Maraviglia would have 53 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Maraviglia had a good opportunity to take the lead as T. Braamhaar came up the left side, but he struck the ball weakly and it went straight into the arms of A. Rudian. Manzo_Team's B. Merlini had to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines, after twisting his ankle with 61 minutes gone. O. Diz was the replacement. 65 minutes into the match, the referee signaled for a Maraviglia substitution. J. Verný came on for A. Lupo. 70 minutes into the game, Maraviglia wanted to bring some new energy to their game. M. Vayssie gave J. Hemetsberger a quick hug as he left the field. Though it was beautiful soccer, the home crowd did not enjoy O. Diz's goal after a run down the left with 81 minutes on the clock. Manzo_Team lead, 0 - 1. The crowd roared in delight as R. Schleuniger finished off a spectacular series of plays up the middle to even the score for Maraviglia after 82 minutes. 1 - 1. Was it the hair gel? Was it a gift from the gods? Either way, the faithful won't care. Soaring like a Saturn V, J. Nieva somehow got his head on a M. Camilli moonshot from the corner and buried it in the back of the net. What grace! What power! Plant the flag for Manzo_Team, Neil Armstrong! The score is now 1 - 2. After 89 minutes, Maraviglia substituted R. Schleuniger for L. Schoor, hoping for a quick impact on the field. Maraviglia set the tempo, maintaining 53 percent of possession.

Maraviglia's best player was T. Braamhaar. Speaking of stinking up the place, L. Schoor sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. M. Masetti performed admirably for Manzo_Team. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by S. Coello today. The match ends 1 - 2.
