536 spectators had come to stade de l'harmattan this cloudy day. Gentlemen prefer blondes and Kalaban prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. Starters: Diack - N'Dir, N'Diougham, Mistewicz - Сhukhmara, Bilicic, Dunda, Razlog, Gräf - Zaïd, Alvim.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Football decided to go with a 5-4-1 formation. They fielded: Oliveira Faria - Hietala, Oudkerk, Toledo, Favaro, Jousselin - Vana, Karlsson, Richart, Ormándi - Nuredini.

Kalaban took a creative approach on the field. With the clock showing 1 minutes, the fourth official held up the substitution board. M. Oudkerk looked to see that it was his number in red, so he made his way over to the sideline and swapped out for J. Kors, though he would have liked to continue. R. Nuredini stunned the crowd with a brilliant counter-attack from the left, giving Football the goal to make it 0 - 1. Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 4 minutes on the clock after A. Gräf's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the Kalaban player a yellow card though. The Football coach was happy with the scoreline, but still wanted to change the lineup. After 12 minutes, S. Alvertis came on for A. Vana. 14 minutes into the game, Football seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a excellent level of organization. With 18 minutes played, Football put themselves up 0 - 2 after an attack from the right, caused by a defensive blunder. The scorer was M. Toledo. V. Razlog's long shot really ought to have found the net for Kalaban after 31 minutes, but it fell just wide of the target. Halftime score was 0 - 2. Neither team was controlling possession at this point in the match.

Football's coach had to raise his voice a little, but he also managed to raise his players' organization to excellent after reviewing his strategy. Football almost scored after a swift counter-attack 51 minutes into the game, but S. Alvertis put the shot from the left flank just outside the frame. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Kalaban's A. Alvim got himself booked. Some things can only be learned through experience, and V. Razlog should take his lesson to heart after nearly gifting Football a goal after 56 minutes. Given a free kick in a difficult position after 74 minutes, Football tried a variation that they had practiced in training. The kick was sent into the area just in front of the keeper, however, the defense were on their toes and allowed no space for a finish. The visitors' R. Nuredini took advantage of a mix-up between the home side's goalie and center backs 75 minutes into the match. 0 - 3 for Football. By now, the players of Football felt that victory was a sure thing and began to play it safe, focusing on defense and not risking too much going forward. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Football had 52...52 percent possession. AH AH AH!

Most important Kalaban player was A. Alvim. I can't remember M. Сhukhmara ever having a worse night than he just had. The most outstanding Football player was without a doubt R. Nuredini. Speaking of stinking up the place, N. Favaro sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The match ends 0 - 3.
