Due to an all-day shower, 38926 paying spectators got to see the game on a field-turned-swamp at Levis Mirepoix Garden. The rivalry game had been the talk of Brussels all week and fans of both teams could be seen throughout the stadium. The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Brussels formed up in a 3-5-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. They fielded: Inchaustegui - Gaeta, Godói Teles, Wisak-Gradinger - Picaza, Simion, Bryde Andersen, Dahl, Jeckelmann - Castberg, Meza.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Trois_fontaines prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. Starters: Málek - Bădiţă, Cruciani, Kubajka - Eilander, Eicken, Marchetto, Schrooten, Steeman - Melichar, Bryl.

Brussels fans held their breath as A. Godói Teles gallivanted down the left side. He successfully avoided all challenges and fired home the go-ahead goal for 1 - 0! D. Melichar did not have a good day today, often losing his footing on the muddy field. H. Meza should probably have put his team up another goal after 31 minutes, but some great goalkeeping by B. Málek kept the visitors in the game. Trois_fontaines's A. Steeman was dominating his wing and kept sending fine balls into the opposing area - D. Melichar managed to kick one of them into the net for 1 - 1 after 34 minutes. It was 1 - 1 at the break. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Trois_fontaines would have 55 percent possession in this half was spot on!

D. Schrooten's long shot really ought to have found the net for Trois_fontaines after 65 minutes, but it fell just wide of the target. With 66 minutes played, H. Meza knocked one home from a counter-attack down the right wing, making the score 2 - 1. R. Loiseau was called on to replace Brussels's M. Castberg after 68 minutes following a nasty collision. Coming in from the right, I. Picaza almost managed to score another goal for Brussels, but his header was kept out by the lightning fast reflexes of the visiting keeper. After more pushing and shoving than a pack of helicopter moms trying to get the last appointment for their snowflakes to see the Easter Bunny, Trois_fontaines's N. Bădiţă finally got himself booked for a foul. A run up the right wing paid off for Trois_fontaines as A. Steeman hit a wicked shot past the keeper to tie the game. 2 - 2 after 81 minutes. Trois_fontaines were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 56 percent of possession.

Most important Brussels player was T. Bryde Andersen. I can't remember R. Loiseau ever having a worse night than he just had. F. Marchetto performed admirably for Trois_fontaines. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by E. Eilander today. The match ends 2 - 2.
