diamons 3 - 2 CA

23673 spectators had found their way to Diamons Bernabeu Arena, despite the heavy rain. diamons had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. Starters: Diaz - Larsen, Dzelzis, Zachinno - Lušina, Ene, Paz, Casino, Preinitzer - Klemens, Galicia.

A 3-5-2 alignment was the formation of choice for CA. The following players had been chosen: Salaun - Ballesteros, Vulin, Egues - Toro, Della Giovanna, Cifer, Sánchez Ochoa, Muntada - Abdollahi, André.

CA tried to focus their attacks down the middle. 4 minutes had elapsed when a great chance for diamons to take the lead after a good cross from the right found F. Galicia alone with the keeper, but he chipped it to the wrong side of the post. diamons were very close to putting themselves one up after 11 minutes as J. Dzelzis got through on the left, but failing in concentration, he shot the ball wide. Slack defending gave diamons a chance to take the lead with 13 minutes played, but S. Klemens's cross from the left flank was fumbled in front of the goal and easily dealt with by the opposition. R. Paz of diamons received a yellow card after 22 minutes for unsportsmanlike behaviour. It was 0 - 0 at the break. diamons had most of the ball, with 59 percent of possession.

diamons broke through on the left 51 minutes into the game, with P. Casino firing in from an acute angle to give the home side a 1 - 0 lead. A great save by keeper R. Salaun after 57 minutes kept the visitors in the game after F. Galicia struck from the left with a real cannonball. With the clock showing 58 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of CA resulted in a counterattack that was smoothly brought under control by J. Ballesteros in the centre of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. The boggy pitch disrupted the game, especially for technical players like B. Vulin. V. Muntada finished off a quick charge from the left of the field by chipping the ball just past the home side's keeper, making the score 1 - 1 63 minutes into the match. After 65 minutes, the diamons coach wanted to see a new face on the pitch, waving J. Dzelzis off the field. C. Roussos took his place. D. Abdollahi of CA seemed to be floating in the air as he elegantly headed in to make the score 1 - 2 after a corner kick that was nicely executed by F. Della Giovanna. With 72 minutes played, the diamons coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. C. Rădăcină came on, H. Zachinno had to leave the fray. The crowd roared in delight as H. Preinitzer finished off a spectacular series of passes through the middle to even the score for diamons 74 minutes into the match. 2 - 2. After 76 minutes, S. Klemens came in from the right, feinted, then sped past the off-balance defender to make the score 3 - 2, giving diamons the lead. diamons enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 61 percent of possession.

diamons's top performer was clearly P. Casino. S. Diaz on the other hand, had a terrible day. The most dominating CA player was without a doubt F. Della Giovanna. However, J. Ballesteros made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 3 - 2.
