BPU 1 - 3 girondins

Overcast weather free of rain made for a turnout of 26400 at Pythons Arena today. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, BPU decided to go with a 4-5-1 formation. Starters: Vähäkangas - Eckholt, Žáčko, Jagerman, Podlaski - Saa, Alexandrov, Khrisanov, Keudell, Jonsson - Bonvalot.

Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! girondins will go to battle in a 3-5-2 formation. Lineup: Fekih - Altzibar, Dolgov, Vaccaro - Trotta, Orenshtein, Cabreira, Muharembegović, Davidov - Talarico, Božek.

Using their brilliant skill, BPU pushed their attacks towards the wings. P. Vähäkangas looked great 8 minutes in after stopping a shot by the visitors' C. Orenshtein. 18 minutes into the game, BPU had difficulty finding their positions and their organization dropped to inadequate. The bleachers were silenced after 32 minutes when girondins's M. Božek put the guests ahead 0 - 1, following an attack on the right. 33 minutes into the game, BPU seemed a little tentative in their play as their organization fell to inadequate. No matter how hard he tried, A. Saa just couldn't get past the visitors' right side defense 34 minutes in and eventually the ball was cleared away. Some fine one-twos on the left led to a girondins goal with 40 minutes gone, making it 0 - 2. M. Božek was noted down as the scorer. After 41 minutes a combination in the middle resulted in a through ball for M. Altzibar who increased girondins's lead to 0 - 3. 0 - 3 was the halftime score. The forty-five minutes were dominated by girondins, with an impressive 58 percent possession of the ball.

During the break, BPU's coach went through the team's tactics yet again, getting them up to solid organization. A spectacular BPU effort on the right resulted in a goal at the 49 minute mark by A. Saa, making the score 1 - 3. After 51 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as BPU found themselves out of position and their organization level dropped to inadequate. Good work by BPU's defensive line after 62 minutes produced a good counter-attack chance, one of which cut elegantly down the middle of the field and found W. Podlaski alone in front of the goal, but his shot whistled just wide. 65 minutes into the game, T. Alexandrov had to leave the field due to a knee injury. In came C. Amstein. As BPU's captain went off, he handed the armband to C. Keudell. C. Caron was called on to replace girondins's F. Trotta after 74 minutes following a nasty collision. 76 minutes in, BPU appeared unsure on how to play and their organization was only inadequate. The girondins players could smell victory in the air. G. Dolgov wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for G. Latreille after 80 minutes. E. Muharembegović had put in a good 82 minutes and left the field with a smile on his face due to his team's lead. A. Spreeuwenberg was the replacement. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that girondins had 56...56 percent possession. AH AH AH!

BPU's best player was N. Bonvalot. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because P. Vähäkangas seemed to stumble all over the pitch. Most important girondins player was J. Cabreira. I can't remember C. Caron ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 1 - 3.
