36862 spectators had come to Theatre of Dreams this cloudy day. Sjakie van Gool was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Isaac Paris and Aivo Kasemägi. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Pimbolins will go to battle in a 5-4-1 formation. Starters: Ortet - Nicoletti, Veiga, Drago, Farinha, Natal - Bezuyen, Dumitrache, Quintana, Ölgür - Brahe.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and ritaline prefers a 3-4-3. Let's see how this plays out for them. Lineup: Scaramozzino - Neplech, Huijbers, Vallantyne - Miez, Trillo, Schejbal, Bulder - Werpachowski, Shrubb, Hudák.

It was obvious, dreadfully boring, and yet tantalizingly effective, to see Pimbolins using their brilliant pressing skills as their primary tactic. Using their supernatural skill, ritaline pushed their attacks towards the wings. It might be a while before the fans see Pimbolins's V. Ortet again, after he had to leave the field in great distress at the 23 minute mark. He was replaced by E. Folgado. D. Veiga became the new Pimbolins captain. The head of D. Werpachowski connected with a beautiful corner kick after 31 minutes. He wasn't shooting, though, but rather passing to A. Huijbers of ritaline who buried the shot for 0 - 1. After 38 minutes, following yet another great corner, H. Ölgür knocked the ball to H. Brahe but it was just too high and the shot came off his shin. Pimbolins's ability to press all over the field paid off frequently. 0 - 1 was the halftime score. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Pimbolins, with an impressive 54 percent possession of the ball.

51 minutes into the match, the visitors put themselves ahead 0 - 2 as R. Schejbal finished off an attack from the left with a spectacular bicycle kick. The bench was restless, and with 65 minutes gone Pimbolins's coach gave 郭. 恒坤 (Hengkun) the opportunity to try to change the team's fortunes. D. Farinha reluctantly left the field. Pimbolins's talent at pressing frustrated their opponents and the fans as the game became a stalemate in the middle of the park. Pimbolins pressed their opponents, causing the game to be a bit of a deadlock at times. The pressing tactics used by Pimbolins were successful as the ball didn't make it out of the middle third very much. E. Nicoletti wasted an opportunity to score from the penalty spot after 82 minutes, further disappointing the home support. Pimbolins were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 52 percent of possession.

The most outstanding Pimbolins player was without a doubt D. Veiga. Speaking of stinking up the place, E. Folgado sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. ritaline's best player was D. Shrubb. Good thing C. Vallantyne isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 0 - 2.
