aghili 1 - 2 Bagher

Clear skies welcomed the 18200 spectators who had made their way to ehsan Arena. Sam Sattler was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Claus Ravnkilde and Frank Westfechtel. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, aghili decided to go with a 4-5-1 formation. The following players had been selected: Amini - Fay, Rakoczy, Bostan, Imboden - Abarbanel, Zyśk, Gastout, Mahdizadeh, Esmaeilzadeh - Arshad.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Bagher prefers a 3-4-3. Let's see how this plays out for them. They fielded: Kolkman - Alexandru, Rande, Heeringa - Agramunt, Jacquet, Fryczkowski, Zotti - Anatibia, Lebduška, Bacchetti.

Like a mighty wizard in the hellish lair of the balrog, aghili is aiming to smother the Hephaestian flames of attack with inadequate skill. Trespass is forbidden! Alas, Balrog, you shall not pass! Down the middle came L. Zotti, making a fantastic play that nearly saw Bagher take the lead after 7 minutes, but F. Amini preserved the tie. Bagher took the lead 13 minutes into the game, making the score 0 - 1 after some elegant movement down the middle. G. Bacchetti was the scorer. Some things can only be learned through experience, and G. Gastout should take his lesson to heart after nearly gifting Bagher a goal after 17 minutes. A penalty was missed by Bagher's W. Fryczkowski 18 minutes into the match. Probably overconfident, he blasted a hard shot miles outside of the left post. Bagher came close to extending their lead as G. Bacchetti delivered a low effort on goal from the right but the angle was too sharp, and the shot was destined for the side netting. 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, aghili's G. Zyśk finally got himself booked for a foul. After 27 minutes of game time, I. Lebduška had an excellent opportunity to add to the visitors' lead, hitting a cross from the right with a half volley, but F. Amini was in the right place and tipped the ball to a corner. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 1. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Bagher, with an impressive 54 percent possession of the ball.

The cannonball from 35 yards by M. Alexandru of Bagher was an impressive attempt, but didn't make it into the net. After 63 minutes, Bagher's I. Lebduška burst through the central defense and let loose a cannonball of a shot, scoring for 0 - 2. Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 64 minutes on the clock after W. Fryczkowski's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the Bagher player a yellow card though. Bagher's M. Heeringa wanted to play on, but after 75 minutes the decision was made to give A. Bialek a chance in his place. They weren't going to win with their current game plan, so the aghili coach told his players how to change things up 77 minutes in. Only after several tries were aghili able to break through on the left 78 minutes in, getting the ball to G. Gastout who cockily put away the goal to make the score 1 - 2. After 79 minutes, aghili used a short break in the game to take new instructions from their coach. The Bagher coach was happy with the scoreline, but still wanted to change the lineup. After 80 minutes, T. Gordon came on for J. Agramunt. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that aghili would have 51 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Most important aghili player was B. Mahdizadeh. Speaking of stinking up the place, T. Bostan sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. Bagher's best player was G. Bacchetti. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because Q. Kolkman seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 1 - 2.
