Overcast weather free of rain made for a turnout of 11573 at nacional lds Arena today. Anders Hagelerberg was the appointed referee. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, nacional decided to go with a 4-4-2 formation. Lineup: Vásquez - Palencia, Barinas, Molina, Pineda - Barbosa, Chauta, Bohórquez, Naizaque - Cárdenas, Martín.

Our studio analysts were correct. Llamas CF has taken the field in a 4-5-1 alignment. The following players took the field: Yáñez - Salguero, Layton, Córdoba, Garcés - Romero, Lucić, Engativá, Vallone, Gálvez - Gaitán.

0 - 1 was the score after 13 minutes, when Llamas CF's B. Lucić cut through the central defense and pounded one in. After the ball was lifted in from the left, B. Lucić was on his own in the home side's penalty area and should have scored after 15 minutes, but missed, probably due to lack of concentration. The game had been going for 26 minutes when U. Gaitán broke through on the right, upping the score to 0 - 2 for Llamas CF, much to the home crowd's dismay. Oh, the humanity! Llamas CF's U. Gaitán dropped as if a burning zeppelin fell on him. He may never be the same again. You may want to hide your eyes for the replay. G. Monsalve came in as a replacement after 34 minutes had been played. After 38 minutes, a mistake by the home side's left defense allowed D. Romero to get through. He outclassed the home side's keeper, adding another goal for the visitors. 0 - 3. After this, you could see that Llamas CF's players were mostly interested in killing time and holding on to their lead. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 3. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Llamas CF, with an impressive 83 percent possession of the ball.

The Llamas CF coach was happy with the scoreline, but still wanted to change the lineup. After 46 minutes, F. Hurtado came on for S. Salguero. After 46 minutes, the Llamas CF players received new instructions from their manager on how to stay in control of the game. The Llamas CF coach was visibly pleased with the score so far, but still ordered a few tactical changes 46 minutes into the game. D. Romero had put in a good 46 minutes and left the field with a smile on his face due to his team's lead. C. Carrasco was the replacement. A swat on the tuchus is all it took to keep nacional's A. Vásquez in the match after injuring his achilles tendon. The ball is in play and we're underway again after 48 minutes have been played. The home fans looked somber as they watched their team give up another goal, this one coming from their right as I. Vallone put one through the keeper's legs. 0 - 4 after 52 minutes. After 67 minutes, Llamas CF's J. Engativá wobbled like a one-legged man on Bourbon Street at Mardi Gras, but he's determined to stay in the match. He's a real fighter! Llamas CF came close to extending their lead as J. Engativá delivered a low effort on goal from the right but the angle was too sharp, and the shot was destined for the side netting. The away team's J. Layton took advantage of a mistake on the home side's right after 84 minutes increasing Llamas CF's lead to 0 - 5. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Llamas CF would have 86 percent possession in this half was spot on!

M. Barinas performed admirably for nacional. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because H. Martín seemed to stumble all over the pitch. Most important Llamas CF player was G. Monsalve. Good thing U. Yáñez isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 0 - 5.
