The local marching band welcomed a crowd of 25079 to Santa Marina. Charles Schinharl was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Riccardo Fistolera and Greg Borckmann. Gentlemen prefer blondes and Sporting prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. They fielded: Villaume - Svanén, Ronkiewicz, Villanova - Roca, Vidanía, Velasco Tovar, Spínola, Stanciu - 成功 (Chenggong) , Canales.

Our studio analysts were correct. AYALATEAM has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. Lineup: Canciller - Angster, Hainaut, Caramillo - Tongue, Kinz, Comfort, Renselaar, Batina - Zieleniewski, Mlonek.

It was an obvious ambition of Sporting to play a wide game with their divine ability to attack down the wings. Today, AYALATEAM's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their magnificent ability. F. Villaume looked great 24 minutes in after stopping a shot by the visitors' A. Tongue. With 31 minutes played F. Villanova almost put the home team one ahead on a cross coming in from the right, but the shot went just wide. AYALATEAM had to make a substitution after 41 minutes. B. Hainaut apparently was hit by a thrown bottle of Schlitz by one of the opposing players' fans, and now reeks of blood and bad beer. While the coach remonstrated with the side official about the situation, A. Correa finished his warmups and came on. One of many good passes from I. Batina at the wing was received and skillfully taken care of by E. Mlonek, scoring the 0 - 1 goal for AYALATEAM. After a scrum in the guest's penalty area with 44 minutes played, the home team was awarded a penalty kick. E. Vidanía equalized to 1 - 1. After 44 minutes, Sporting's T. Svanén successfully broke up a pass with his face. Instinctively, he got up again only to unintentionally use his now-throbbing schnozz to break up a second pass. As he was carted off for a concussion check, J. Pfalz ran onto the field to take his place. The teams went for the halftime break at 1 - 1. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Sporting, with an impressive 61 percent possession of the ball.

Sporting had a chance to take the lead after M. Canales's dazzling drive up the left, but the opportunity fizzled away as his shot went just over the bar with 62 minutes played. After more pushing and shoving than a pack of helicopter moms trying to get the last appointment for their snowflakes to see the Easter Bunny, Sporting's V. Roca finally got himself booked for a foul. C. Ronkiewicz received some harsh words from his coach after he acted foolishly 83 minutes into the match, probably out of lack of experience, and almost let an opponent score. Sporting were very close to putting themselves one up with 87 minutes gone as M. Canales got through on the left, but a lapse in concentration sent the ball wide. Sporting set the tempo, maintaining 61 percent of possession.

Sporting's best player was M. Canales. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because I. Stanciu seemed to stumble all over the pitch. Most important AYALATEAM player was B. Zieleniewski. Speaking of stinking up the place, M. Comfort sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The match ends 1 - 1.
