Almed 4 - 0 Doido

Overcast weather free of rain made for a turnout of 52197 at Caldeirão da Chapa Quente today. The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Almed formed up in a 3-5-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. The following players had been selected: Paškotić - Jardim, Ráo, Serpente - Cebola, Verschaeve, Duvalle, Gontijo, Zamora - Santos Mota, Freyre.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Doido prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. Starters: Čulkstēns - Heide, Nilsen, Walters - Hoddle, Tino, Garanhão, Timmerman, Obšívaný - Cardia, Murariu.

The home side put themselves ahead 1 - 0 after 5 minutes of hard work with a breakthrough from P. Freyre, who, all by his lonesome, came out of the right wing and hooked the ball over the visitors' keeper. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased Almed's lead to 2 - 0 as P. Freyre finished it off clinically, firing the shot from a terrible angle. At this point, it was obvious that the players of Almed lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. The referee showed Doido's E. Obšívaný the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Coming in from the right, P. Freyre almost managed to score another goal for Almed, but his header was kept out by the lightning fast reflexes of the visiting keeper. It was 2 - 0 at the break. Almed set the tempo, maintaining 60 percent of possession.

Almed's P. Freyre had an excellent opportunity 63 minutes in, shooting after bringing down a ball from the right, but he missed the goal by miles! P. Freyre could have put Almed up one more, but he fired into the side netting after breaking free on the left after 64 minutes. A beautiful, arcing corner kick from J. Verschaeve found P. Freyre at the far post, soaring to meet the ball. The keeper is late and he's headed it in for 3 - 0! At that, P. Freyre was noted down for a hattrick! After 73 minutes, I. Ráo put Almed ahead 4 - 0 when he rose to head in a hooked ball, the result of an effort from the right side. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Almed would have 62 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Almed's top performer was clearly P. Freyre. I can't remember T. Jardim ever having a worse night than he just had. Doido's best player was I. Murariu. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by P. Nilsen today. The match ends 4 - 0.
