The 4688 spectators at Undergroundpalace were in for an afternoon of sunshine. All of Hessen was shut down for the day, as fans of both clubs came to the local rivalry game. Our studio analysts were correct. Underground has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. The following players had been selected: Mičulka - Kolzenberg, Withelm, Klaffke - Eltinger, Ziesemann, Schmauch, Dunger, Schilk - Hoerl, Ströhlein.

Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! FlascheLeer will go to battle in a 4-4-2 formation. They fielded: Durbacă - Bärwald, Bottai, Miggiano, Tavolieri - Wirtgen, Castropol, Jerszczak, Brämer - Tanrıöver, Feigl.

Today, FlascheLeer's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their solid ability. Making his way up the middle after 2 minutes, W. Schilk almost managed to sneak a goal past the visitors' keeper, but R. Durbacă was ready and blocked it to keep the score level. P. Ziesemann's name was chanted throughout the stadium after his goal in minute 21 following a run up the middle gave Underground the 1 - 0 lead. After 25 minutes, O. Dunger put Underground ahead 2 - 0 when he rose to head in a hooked ball, the result of an effort from the right side. By now, the players of Underground felt that victory was a sure thing and began to play it safe, focusing on defense and not risking too much going forward. Some lightning fast dribbles by A. Ströhlein left G. Bottai way behind after 34 minutes, but the shot was just wide. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased Underground's lead to 3 - 0 as A. Ströhlein finished it off clinically, firing the shot from a terrible angle. It was 3 - 0 at the break. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Underground would have 74 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Underground's P. Ziesemann swung in a good chance from the left, but the visitors' defense were able to clear the ball. After 54 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by W. Schilk might have resulted in another goal for Underground. However, R. Durbacă made a spectacular save. FlascheLeer almost scored after a counter-attack 60 minutes into the match, but F. Wirtgen took a shot from the left that landed harmlessly in the side netting. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, FlascheLeer's K. Feigl was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the field after 65 minutes. B. Karlić was given a chance to change things around. FlascheLeer needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 65 minutes J. Castropol made way for A. Grevenbrück. E. Brämer was handed the FlascheLeer captain's armband. After playing for 65 minutes and finding his team in a losing position, the manager hoped to turn things around. M. Tanrıöver was ordered to assume a different position on the field and switched places with A. Grevenbrück. P. Miggiano of FlascheLeer received a yellow card after 69 minutes for unsportsmanlike behavior. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Underground, with an impressive 73 percent possession of the ball.

The most outstanding Underground player was without a doubt E. Hoerl. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by D. Mičulka today. Most important FlascheLeer player was E. Brämer. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because M. Tavolieri seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 3 - 0.
