Overcast weather free of rain made for a turnout of 38058 at Ayr-Arena today. Toma Trut was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Torsten Ates and Malik Šašić. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Ayr-united decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. The following players had been selected: Pioterek - Ferreiros, Tomažinčič, Ramírez - Obertrave, Lundstad, Akselsen, Rabot, Moscardino - Zobel, Wiedensohler.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Þórshamar prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. Starters: Leponen - Mateescu, Robertsson, Balestrieri - Carocci, Friðgeirsson, Ingibergsson, Harrýsson, Guardião - Neaga, Vajda.

It was obvious, dreadfully boring, and yet tantalizingly effective, to see Ayr-united using their solid pressing skills as their primary tactic. Þórshamar used their magical ability to concentrate their attacks in the middle of the field. At this time in the match, Ayr-united were using their skill at pressing to successfully stifle the game. The bleachers were silenced after 15 minutes when Þórshamar's C. Neaga put the guests ahead 0 - 1, following an attack on the right. After 36 minutes a combination in the middle resulted in a through ball for C. Neaga who increased Þórshamar's lead to 0 - 2. Ayr-united's R. Akselsen got the home crowd going bananas when he finished off a left wing bull rush, reducing the away team's lead to 1 - 2. Halftime score was 1 - 2. Ayr-united set the tempo, maintaining 51 percent of possession.

Although the whole team were struggling to impress, Ayr-united's N. Zobel was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the field after 55 minutes. B. Slipchinsky was given a chance to change things around. The referee showed Ayr-united's R. Rabot the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Þórshamar, with an impressive 51 percent possession of the ball.

Most important Ayr-united player was F. Lundstad. Good thing B. Slipchinsky isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. Þórshamar's best player was L. Vajda. I can't remember J. Leponen ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 1 - 2.
