The 18032 fans in attendance at Aslantepe Arena were roasting in the hot sun. Baldemar Dreyß was the appointed referee. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! FaNaTiX will go to battle in a 4-4-2 formation. The following players had been selected: López - Romero, Vallebona, Kulstrunk, Santíssimo - Breuer, Dolinar, Kurtyshev, Drăguloiu - Amatriain, Borreguero.

Our studio analysts were correct. Kali-Etingen has taken the field in a 3-4-3 alignment. The following players took the field: Glindemann - Gelling, Miehl, Königmaier - Kieber, Ehmann, Tauschek, Ceretta - Anhorn, Åkerström, Bueth.

Like the adage "bend but don't break", Kali-Etingen will rely on their solid ability to counter-attack today. After 4 minutes of play, V. Dolinar gave the home team a 1 - 0 lead after an attack coming in from the right. The referee showed Kali-Etingen's T. Miehl the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. That was no dive! FaNaTiX's F. Romero looked to be in real pain after being caught by a stray leg. The fans held their breath, but in the end he managed to get up and keep playing. FaNaTiX managed to extend their lead to 2 - 0 when R. Borreguero slid in neatly from the left side and struck a fine shot past the away team's goalkeeper. The clock read 24 minutes and things were deteriorating for the away team as FaNaTiX scored another to make it 3 - 0 after a left side attack resulted in a goal for S. Vallebona. The visitors replied 25 minutes into the game, reducing the lead to 3 - 1, as H. Tauschek dashed up the middle and chipped the ball over the home team's keeper. It was 3 - 1 at the break. FaNaTiX set the tempo, maintaining 74 percent of possession.

FaNaTiX put themselves up 4 - 1 when N. Kulstrunk broke through on the right, leaving the entire defensive delegation behind him. Coming in on the left, K. Ehmann did everything right to get a goal for Kali-Etingen after 68 minutes, but his curling shot was punched clear by the keeper. FaNaTiX added another goal to their lead as V. Dolinar struck home for 5 - 1 after an attack from the left set him up unmarked in front of the keeper. After this, you could see that FaNaTiX's players were mostly interested in killing time and holding on to their lead. The crowd was amused as K. Gelling of Kali-Etingen used a few interesting tricks and dribbles to get into the penalty box. The finish by R. Ceretta wasn't very amusing, however, and the score was unchanged. 73 minutes in Kali-Etingen probably could have turned their free kick into a shot, but went for a cross instead. Unfortunately, R. Ceretta jumped too late and the ball was redirected out for a goal kick. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that FaNaTiX would have 75 percent possession in this half was spot on!

V. Dolinar performed admirably for FaNaTiX. Good thing C. López isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. Kali-Etingen's top performer was clearly J. Anhorn. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because K. Gelling seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 5 - 1.
