62879 spectators had come to FC Dambrugge Arena this cloudy day. Adrian Jurcã was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Rob Foix and Jindřich Zajíc. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Seefhoek will go to battle in a 4-5-1 formation. The following players had been selected: Van Buynder - De Wispelaere, Fourneau, Bricmont, Bronchart - Wymeersch, Simon, Bourdon, Votquenne, Vandersmissen - Galloy.

Our studio analysts were correct. Corinthian has taken the field in a 2-5-3 alignment. The following players took the field: Echterdingen - Tolosa, Vanwiddingen - Muní, Zolotilov, Vanstechelman, Bečica, Declerck - Doroshkov, Byla, Lecca.

Corinthian clearly preferred using their divine ability to attack in the middle today. Corinthian's goal to take the lead 0 - 1 came via a questionable penalty, but A. Tolosa drove it home without a second thought. With a shot lofted in from just outside the penalty area 5 minutes in, G. Simon of Seefhoek evened the score to 1 - 1. Corinthian's M. Bečica gave the visitors a 1 - 2 lead after 8 minutes with a superb strike from the right. D. Vandersmissen's well-known speed was on display as he darted past his defender and sent a beautiful pass through the defender’s legs to S. Galloy who scored the 2 - 2 goal. Corinthian had several good opportunities to take the lead, especially 23 minutes in when C. Lecca found himself alone with R. Van Buynder who managed a block. Corinthian had a good opportunity to score the go-ahead goal after a combination on the right but the home team's keeper R. Van Buynder saved O. Declerck's shot that was headed straight to the top corner. Halftime score was 2 - 2. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Corinthian would have 53 percent possession in this half was spot on!

N. Zolotilov will have Excedrin Headache number 5 after heading home the hard corner kick from A. Tolosa after 73 minutes of play. I'm sure that making the score 2 - 3 will assuage him a bit, though. After 79 minutes of play, G. Wymeersch equalized for Seefhoek after a hard charging attack from the right. Some great play up the middle by Seefhoek led to a chance for J. Bourdon to get the go-ahead goal with 86 minutes played, but the shot hit the crossbar. Corinthian took the lead 87 minutes into the game, making the score 3 - 4 after some elegant movement down the middle. C. Lecca was the scorer. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Corinthian had 54...54 percent possession. AH AH AH!

The most outstanding Seefhoek player was without a doubt G. Simon. Speaking of stinking up the place, G. Bricmont sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. Most important Corinthian player was V. Doroshkov. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by Y. Vanwiddingen today. The match ends 3 - 4.
