BPU 4 - 0 corleone

18531 spectators had found their way to Pythons Arena, despite the heavy rain. Kennet Skøtt was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Jouko Leppäjärvi and Friedmar Traxler. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, BPU decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. Lineup: Bączyk - Eckholt, Jagerman, Podlaski - Saa, Amstein, Khrisanov, Keudell, Jonsson - Meléndez, Bonvalot.

Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! corleone will go to battle in a 3-5-2 formation. The following players had been selected: Verdolin - Guerra, Ortiz, Campos - Albiński, Bojović, Mignot, Fennema, Da Silva - Capitanio, Kovács.

Today, BPU's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their brilliant ability. A outstanding level of counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of corleone. BPU broke through on the left after 6 minutes, with C. Keudell firing at an impossible angle to give the home side a 1 - 0 lead. The rain made it hard for players like J. Mignot to show their technical control of the ball on this soggy day. The clock read 17 minutes and things were deteriorating for the away team as BPU scored another to make it 2 - 0 after a left side attack resulted in a goal for M. Jonsson. With 18 minutes on the clock, C. Keudell could have extended the lead, but his rocket of a free kick went just over the bar. There was concern in the stands when, at the 25 minute mark, corleone's R. Guerra hit the ground hard, but with the help of the trainer's magic spray, he rejoined his teammates on the field. With 26 minutes played, H. Eckholt could have brought this one home for BPU as he charged up on the left, but his hooked ball went just a bit too high. It was 2 - 0 at the break. BPU were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 61 percent of possession.

Players in BPU heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their central attacks to the wings instead. BPU put themselves up 3 - 0 when C. Keudell broke through on the right, leaving the entire defensive delegation behind him. The bench was restless, and with 56 minutes gone corleone's coach gave V. Balabanov the opportunity to try to change the team's fortunes. J. Mignot reluctantly left the field. Attacking on the wings was the theme of the day for BPU, and they were successfully passing the ball outside from the middle. N. Bonvalot increased BPU's lead to 4 - 0, connecting with a hooked ball from the right. The away fans are claiming handball, to no avail. By now, the players of BPU felt that victory was a sure thing and began to play it safe, focusing on defense and not risking too much going forward. With 60 minutes played, the corleone coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. K. Beaucamp came on and S. Da Silva had to leave the fray. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, corleone's B. Kovács was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the field after 71 minutes. C. Thorin was given a chance to change things around. J. Campos of corleone received a yellow card after 81 minutes for unsportsmanlike behavior. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that BPU had 56...56 percent possession. AH AH AH!

C. Keudell performed admirably for BPU. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by M. Bączyk today. corleone's top performer was clearly M. Capitanio. I can't remember G. Verdolin ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 4 - 0.
