Ravens 4 - 0 Charlie

Due to an all-day shower, 11236 paying spectators got to see a match on a pitch-turned-bog at The Aviary. Siniša Gilić was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Andreas Ackermann and Robert Utterer. Everyone was excited about the upcoming Victoria derby and the crowd was divided evenly. A 4-5-1 alignment was the formation of choice for Ravens. The following players took the field: Węcławek - Cadeddu, Ingesson, Giroldini, Bartiakas - Bock, Kahlig, Efimenco, Archer, Pham - Mallat.

Charlie had chosen a strategic 4-4-2 formation. Lineup: Mack - Gilmore, Trung Chỉnh, Yap, Grootjans - Kani, Talbot, Muspratt, Prezerakos - Mereta, Rouvray.

Ravens showed off their creative tactics. Ravens's M. Cadeddu got himself booked for a foul. Charlie's P. Trung Chỉnh left the field after 27 minutes because of a nasty blow to the shin. His replacement was J. Dennison. At 28 minutes played, C. Mallat came in from the right with the intention of giving Ravens the lead, but his rocket of a shot rattled the crossbar. D. Kani was uncomfortable with the soggy pitch as he couldn't move the ball around with his usual grace. After 33 minutes of play, C. Mallat gave the home team a 1 - 0 lead after an attack coming in from the right. J. Archer could have increased the lead after 35 minutes, but his shot hit the post after a nice combination in the middle of the park. Good work by the Charlie defensive line after 36 minutes produced a good counterattack chance, which cut elegantly down the middle of the pitch and found M. Mereta alone in front of the goal, but his shot whistled just wide. After 39 minutes, Ravens were awarded a free kick. Rather than shooting straight at goal, the taker went for an indirect variant which seemed to take his team mates a bit by surprise. N. Ingesson did attempt a finish, but from an awkward position, sending the ball into the away fans. 1 - 0 was the halftime score. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Ravens, with 80 percent of the ball.

C. Mallat unleashed a swerving effort from the right that the visitors' keeper did well to tip wide. With 50 minutes played, Ravens put themselves up 2 - 0 when the visiting defenders lost the ball to C. Mallat, who came up from the left and proceeded to coolly round the keeper and knock the ball home. Confident in their lead, Ravens's players relaxed and focused more on defending the lead than increasing it. With 61 minutes played, S. Kahlig of Ravens fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. Some things can only be learned through experience, and V. Efimenco should take his lesson to heart after nearly gifting Charlie a goal with 64 minutes of the match played. Ravens increased the lead as P. Giroldini struck to make the score 3 - 0 after an attack from the left left him unmarked in front of the keeper. Ravens's P. Giroldini was shown a yellow card after 79 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Charlie were forced into a substitution as N. Rouvray couldn't continue due to some rough treatment, forcing P. Pammu to come in off the bench. Ravens managed to extend their lead to 4 - 0 when J. Bock cut in neatly from the left side and struck a fine shot past the away team's goalkeeper. Possession in this half belonged to Ravens, who controlled the ball 85 percent of the time.

Most important Ravens player was J. Bock. On the other hand, M. Cadeddu's play was disheartening. M. Mereta performed admirably for Charlie. B. Yap was a disappointment, however. The match ends 4 - 0.
