Clouds darkened the skies at R.C.D Sarpullidos Arena as 1742 spectators turned up for the match. Czesław Durbas was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Hanns-Ulrich Heilbronner and Ivan Pihlskär. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Sarpullidos will go to battle in a 4-4-2 formation. They fielded: Palacio Ortiz - Gatti, Arteatzabeitia, Idrissi, Uzquiano - Albella, de Montagut, Tejero, Puyol - Aladrén, Riera.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Pulpitos decided to go with a 2-5-3 formation. The following players had been selected: Mortensen - Rodríguez Girón, Uriszar - Duero, Debruyne, Sisó, Llerena, Barella - Ramo Martínez, Monte, Vila.

Though it was beautiful soccer, the home crowd did not enjoy A. Llerena's goal after a run down the left with 3 minutes on the clock. Pulpitos lead, 0 - 1. The home crowd was not impressed when J. Sisó came in from the right, shooting hard to score after 19 minutes. Pulpitos were now up 0 - 2. Almost all the way down at the corner flag, Pulpitos's J. Barella somehow managed to get a perfect pass into the middle, impossible to miss for F. Monte, who scored for 0 - 3. Confident in their lead, Pulpitos's players relaxed and focused more on defending the lead than increasing it. Pulpitos's É. Debruyne made it through the home team's defense on the right hand side 34 minutes into the match. After rounding the keeper, he only had to place the ball in the unguarded net when a defender slid in and cleared the ball off the line. Sarpullidos's N. Uzquiano managed a superb strike from the left after 40 minutes that would have left goalkeeper E. Mortensen without a chance, had it not hit the post. 0 - 3 was the score after the first half. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Pulpitos would have 63 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Pulpitos already had the lead, so M. Duero probably won't be too disappointed that his speculative shot from the right 57 minutes in fell wide of the goal. J. Sisó came close to extending the visitors' lead when he found himself completely unmarked in front of the goal after a pass through the middle, but his attempted chip over V. Palacio Ortiz just kept rising and landed in the relieved crowd. Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 75 minutes on the clock after N. Uzquiano's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the Sarpullidos player a yellow card though. The home fans looked somber as they watched their team give up another goal, this one coming from their right as M. Duero put one through the keeper's legs. 0 - 4 after 83 minutes. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Pulpitos had 62...62 percent possession. AH AH AH!

Most important Sarpullidos player was A. Riera. Speaking of stinking up the place, V. Palacio Ortiz sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. Pulpitos's best player was M. Duero. Good thing E. Mortensen isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 0 - 4.
