O.U.L 0 - 6 bomas

28755 spectators had come to Downtown this cloudy day. Marco Leenders was the appointed referee. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, O.U.L decided to go with a 3-4-3 formation. Lineup: Bierset - Hallez, Ryckaert, De Kee - Willems, Dieschburg, Fischer, Di Pietro - Nadal, Margodt, Damien.

Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! bomas will go to battle in a 3-5-2 formation. The following players had been selected: Solís - Barbu, Ness, Krefting - Stefano, Soldevilla, Semeraro, Danet, Gutierrez - Lowet, Trubat.

A passable level of counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of O.U.L. Today, bomas's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their outstanding ability. 13 minutes into the game, V. Stefano almost gave the visitors the lead, as he chipped a delicate lob over the keeper, but the ball glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. A corner kick created massive confusion in the penalty area, with a near-goal by J. Krefting. At last, bomas's J. Trubat was able to will the ball into the net. 0 - 1. The home fans looked somber as they watched their team give up another goal, this one coming from their right as D. Barbu put one through the keeper's legs. 0 - 2 after 26 minutes. After this, you could see that bomas's players were mostly interested in killing time and holding on to their lead. O.U.L's F. Willems had a nice free kick routine after 29 minutes that was very close to paying off, had it not been for a dramatic save by the visitors' keeper. N. Fischer brought the corner down with his chest before whipping it to C. Di Pietro who had the whole net open before him, but his attempt hit the post. bomas's C. Danet received a ball slotted perfectly through the home side's central defense after 36 minutes, and chipped it past the helpless keeper to increase the lead to 0 - 3. The away fans won't regret traveling for this one! Showing that he’s been around the block once or twice, J. Trubat scored to make it 0 - 4 for bomas after putting some pressure on the enemy defense at a critical moment. It was obvious that bomas had instructions to attack on the wings instead of in the middle. After 39 minutes of game time, S. Ness had an excellent opportunity to add to the visitors' lead, hitting a cross from the right with a half volley, but S. Bierset was in the right place and tipped the ball to a corner. A swat on the tuchus is all it took to keep bomas's S. Ness in the match after injuring his achilles tendon. The ball is in play and we're underway again after 40 minutes have been played. It was 0 - 4 at the break. The forty-five minutes were dominated by bomas, with an impressive 65 percent possession of the ball.

S. Ness increased the visitors' lead by volleying in a pass from the right. 0 - 5. bomas were determined to attack down the sideline and their central attempts were constantly abandoned in favor of the wings. S. Bierset got a fingertip on M. Semeraro's shot from the left 81 minutes in, and managed to keep the visitors from going up another goal. Attacking on the wings was the theme of the day for bomas, and they were successfully passing the ball outside from the middle. After 83 minutes, bomas sent a free kick in high over the penalty box. In what looked like a well-rehearsed move, the ball was headed backwards and reached J. Trubat, who had plenty of time to shoot and score - 0 - 6. That made three goals for J. Trubat. He'll be taking the match ball home with him having scored a hattrick! Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that bomas would have 68 percent possession in this half was spot on!

O.U.L's top performer was clearly P. Damien. Good thing E. Hallez isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. J. Trubat performed admirably for bomas. I can't remember A. Solís ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 0 - 6.
