Dark skies made the crowd of 50539 at RAFC Arena a little nervous, but the rain held off. The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and fcantwerp formed up in a 4-4-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. They fielded: Gabriel - Thomassen, Gómez, Pastoors, Einarsson - Sadagopan, van den Beukel, Průšek, Balaščík - Fitrakis, Lemponen.

Our studio analysts were correct. Hever has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. Lineup: Volovski - Haj-Amal, Arnedo, Rodríguez - Luketics, Guttenberg, Lapage, De Pus, Koczka - Campoamor, Hoftun.

Some great play up the middle by fcantwerp led to a chance for J. Balaščík to get the go-ahead goal with 9 minutes played, but the shot hit the crossbar. Hever had a good opportunity to score the go-ahead goal after a combination on the right but the home team's keeper A. Gabriel saved F. Lapage's shot that was headed straight to the top corner. fcantwerp had a chance to take the lead after J. Balaščík's dazzling drive up the left, but the opportunity fizzled away as his shot went just over the bar with 17 minutes played. The game had been going for 18 minutes when C. Fitrakis came in on the right, feinted, then sped past the off-balance defender to put away the 1 - 0 goal, giving fcantwerp the lead. Hever's B. Hoftun was shown a yellow card after 19 minutes for slicing down an opponent. J. Průšek let loose a swerving effort from the right that the visitors' keeper did well to tip wide. The referee showed Hever's C. Campoamor the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. S. Jouve did some final stretches before entering the game as fcantwerp's trainer helped C. Pastoors off the field after an injury. One of many good passes from M. Koczka at the wing was received and skillfully taken care of by B. Hoftun, scoring the 1 - 1 goal for Hever. Some quick footwork on the left side of the field 41 minutes into the match left Hever's C. Campoamor completely free to score. 1 - 2 for the visitors. After more pushing and shoving than a pack of rabid shoppers at a Wal-Mart Black Friday sale, Hever's M. Guttenberg finally got himself booked for a foul. Due to a severely mistimed tackle, T. Einarsson of fcantwerp spent some time on the grass writhing in agony before he could get up and continue the game. After 44 minutes, J. Průšek got through on the right and was very close to equalizing for the home side, but he didn't get the shot right and it rolled just past the far post. fcantwerp mounted an inspired counter-attack down the right wing after 44 minutes, but J. Balaščík was unable to convert from short range. It was 1 - 2 at the break. The statistics geek breathlessly ran into the press box to show fcantwerp in control of the ball, with 55 percent possession. Thanks, Poindexter.

After the ball was lifted in from the left, F. Lapage was on his own in the home side's penalty area and should have scored after 53 minutes, but missed, probably due to lack of concentration. M. Lemponen made a superb effort after 54 minutes after a long ball through the middle, but one of the visitors' defenders got a foot in at the last second to preserve the away lead. fcantwerp tried to even things up by sending a long ball through the middle, but the visitors' defense easily read the pass. fcantwerp put pressure on the visitors' central defense with 77 minutes played, but J. Balaščík couldn't find an opening. After 86 minutes fcantwerp were able to score the equalizing 2 - 2 goal when N. van den Beukel picked up a pass coming in from the right and lofted it past the away team's keeper. F. Massias was called on to replace fcantwerp's C. Fitrakis after 87 minutes following a nasty collision. As fcantwerp's captain went off, he handed the armband to F. Massias. The forty-five minutes were dominated by fcantwerp, with an impressive 54 percent possession of the ball.

The most outstanding fcantwerp player was without a doubt M. Lemponen. I can't remember S. Jouve ever having a worse night than he just had. Most important Hever player was C. Campoamor. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because M. Rodríguez seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 2 - 2.
