38740 spectators arrived at Money For All, where weather conditions were pretty good for soccer. Patrik P. Flinkmar was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Mats Antonsson and Boldizsár Berke. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Nothing decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. The following players took the field: Marescotti - Juc, Patrizi, Basso - Woo Ki, Vecchio, Partipilo, Taormina, Tsymbal - Calvelli, Vilian.

Our studio analysts were correct. Paltana has taken the field in a 4-3-3 alignment. They fielded: Gouveia - Borgerink, Bilotta, Miolato, Gancedo - Brusasco, Fontanarosa, Zoff - Pinsino, Adad, Freienohl.

For their match strategy, Paltana had decided to use their world class ability to counter-attack whenever possible. Was that a pass or a bad touch? Either way, the inexperienced G. Patrizi almost gave Paltana a goal, but luckily they couldn't capitalize on the mistake. Nothing's N. Calvelli tried to break through the middle repeatedly, but the visitors' defenders were just too alert. With the clock showing 39 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of Paltana resulted in a counter-attack that was smoothly brought under control by Q. Adad in the center of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. 40 minutes into the game, Q. Adad had a great chance to put his team ahead, but his kick from the left went wide. Maybe R. Partipilo should join the aquatics team instead. He went down dramatically after 42 minutes, crying out with agony as he fell. The referee was not impressed, though, and showed him a yellow for diving. It was 0 - 0 at the break. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Nothing would have 66 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Nothing's G. Taormina was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 52 minutes. The referee showed Nothing's C. Juc the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. F. Brusasco was the unlucky victim and couldn't continue the game, so Paltana's Ş. Kırdağ had to come off the bench. The home side put themselves ahead 1 - 0 after 82 minutes of hard work with a breakthrough from M. Tsymbal, who, all by his lonesome, came out of the right wing and hooked the ball over the visitors' keeper. Paltana tied it all up, 83 minutes in, after a spectacular goal by Q. Adad, who miraculously broke through the home side's central defense, making it 1 - 1. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Nothing had 68...68 percent possession. AH AH AH!

The most outstanding Nothing player was without a doubt M. Tsymbal. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by G. Patrizi today. F. Pinsino performed admirably for Paltana. I can't remember V. Borgerink ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 1 - 1.
