The local marching band welcomed a crowd of 18250 to Os M(e)tralhas. Christophe Broudic was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Ivano Pulvirenti and Sofus Klein. Gentlemen prefer blondes and M(e)tralhas prefers a 4-4-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. The following players took the field: Kisielewski - López Gutiérrez, Riba, Farol, Rajasuo - Cadete, Acuña, Ragazzi, Schett - Siemons, Dibo.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, StarDukeFisio decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. The following players had been selected: Volkerink - Romagosa, Bergfald, Kamoye - Ravn, Gangoiti, Capatonda, Lamont, Rhodehefer - Chianese, Espinhoza.

StarDukeFisio mostly ignored the flanks in favor of their magnificent ability to attack in the middle. S. Kisielewski looked great 19 minutes in after stopping a shot by the visitors' G. Chianese. 24 minutes into the match, StarDukeFisio nearly took the lead, as G. Chianese broke through on the right. However, S. Kisielewski made the save. With the clock showing 25 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of M(e)tralhas resulted in a counter-attack that was smoothly brought under control by A. Cadete in the center of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. 0 - 0 was the score after the first half. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that StarDukeFisio would have 60 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 64 minutes on the clock after L. Capatonda's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the StarDukeFisio player a yellow card though. The guests almost went up by a goal with 65 minutes elapsed when A. Rhodehefer came through from the right. The shot bounced harmlessly off the post, though. 66 minutes in StarDukeFisio probably could have turned their free kick into a shot, but went for a cross instead. Unfortunately, À. Romagosa jumped too late and the ball was redirected out for a goal kick. C. Espinhoza came close to putting the visiting team one up 76 minutes into the match, following a solo raid down the middle, but S. Kisielewski managed to tip the ball over. J. Rajasuo stunned the crowd with a brilliant counter-attack from the left, giving M(e)tralhas the goal to make it 1 - 0. The forty-five minutes were dominated by StarDukeFisio, with an impressive 62 percent possession of the ball.

M(e)tralhas's best player was S. Dibo. I can't remember H. Schett ever having a worse night than he just had. StarDukeFisio's top performer was clearly L. Capatonda. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by R. Volkerink today. The match ends 1 - 0.
