Kulmhof 0 - 6 Samsun

Weather conditions were fairly good for soccer, and FC Kulmhof Arena saw a turnout of 12000. Mikko Aaltonen was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Rosario Radice and Luca Bissola. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Kulmhof will go to battle in a 4-4-2 formation. Lineup: Kapferer - Steiner, Engelhart, Gassler, Linder - Hein, Chen, Schindler, Stockinger - Schatz, Baumann.

Our studio analysts were correct. Samsun has taken the field in a 4-5-1 alignment. The following players had been selected: Arreaza - Szőnyi, Delcourt, Musello, Baumgartner - Bornstaedt, Korpics, Gradowski, Lý, Rodrigues - Cartoccio.

Using their titanic skill, Samsun pushed their attacks towards the wings. Samsun had a good opportunity to attack in the middle, but remembered their instructions to go down the wing instead. Samsun's T. Lý managed to lose the defenders as he burst through the right side and scored, putting the visitors ahead, 0 - 1. The game had been going for 24 minutes when G. Delcourt broke through on the right, upping the score to 0 - 2 for Samsun, much to the home crowd's dismay. With 25 minutes played, Samsun put themselves up 0 - 3 after an attack from the right, caused by a defensive blunder. The scorer was L. Baumgartner. Players in Samsun heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their central attacks to the wings instead. A defender managed to keep the ball from crossing the goal-line after a curling shot from the right by M. Cartoccio beat the keeper with 32 minutes played, preventing Samsun from going up another goal. The referee showed Samsun's J. Bornstaedt the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Kulmhof were forced into a substitution as P. Kapferer couldn't continue playing due to some rough treatment, so A. Lamprecht had to come in from the bench. M. Cartoccio somehow managed to break free of his man on the left wing and only needed a relatively easy finish to bring Samsun's lead up to 0 - 4. Halftime score was 0 - 4. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Samsun would have 79 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Maybe it was because of his team's lead, or maybe it was due to the ease with which he broke down the left, but J. Gradowski was a bit too sure of his talents, so instead of taking the easy tap-in goal after 48 minutes, he went for the backheel, which he put woefully wide. 50 minutes into the game, S. Linder had to leave the field due to a knee injury. In came H. Glanz. Samsun's M. Cartoccio received a ball slotted perfectly through the home side's central defense after 55 minutes, and chipped it past the helpless keeper to increase the lead to 0 - 5. The away fans won't regret traveling for this one! At this point, it was obvious that the players of Samsun lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. 61 minutes into the match, G. Musello came through the middle and almost added to his team's lead, but the shot went wide. With 65 minutes played, H. Korpics nearly put the visitors up by one more as he broke through in the middle and fired from just outside the box, but his shot whizzed just over the bar. The home crowd was not impressed when T. Lý came in from the right, shooting hard to score after 68 minutes. Samsun were now up 0 - 6. Samsun set the tempo, maintaining 82 percent of possession.

Most important Kulmhof player was J. Baumann. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by A. Lamprecht today. The most outstanding Samsun player was without a doubt G. Delcourt. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because H. Korpics seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 0 - 6.
