The local marching band welcomed a crowd of 37682 to Red Wall Arena. Patrick Bohning-Gaese was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Sepp Sønderskov and John Grey. The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Atlético formed up in a 3-5-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. The following players took the field: Cymek - Negrilă, Rudkin, Kubát - Albano, Nordman, Dechent, Lagos, Andonaegui - Erčulj, Masschelein.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Reñaca prefers a 3-4-3. Let's see how this plays out for them. Starters: Flemming - Chojan, Riemhofer, Gamboa - Lobillo, Bornstein, Kindermann, Andrada - Hanssen, Marileo, Livingstone.

Atlético used their skill at pressing to close down their opponents all over the field. Against a lesser team, Reñaca could very well have succeeded with their smart indirect free kick combination after 17 minutes. A trio of passes took the ball all the way past the defenders, but by then the intended recipient was blocked off and the keeper could make a leisurely save. Atlético's A. Rudkin was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 39 minutes. Reñaca will have to work out a different routine for indirect free kicks. Though it looked well-rehearsed, their play after 40 minutes was easily anticipated by the opposition and the attackers simply had nowhere to go. The guests took the lead 42 minutes into the match, after a right-side attack resulted in S. Andrada scoring to make it 0 - 1. With 43 minutes played, Reñaca put themselves up 0 - 2 after an attack from the right, caused by a defensive blunder. The scorer was J. Hanssen. By now, the players of Reñaca felt that victory was a sure thing and began to play it safe, focusing on defense and not risking too much going forward. Atlético pressed their opponents, causing the game to be a bit of a deadlock at times. 0 - 2 was the halftime score. Reñaca set the tempo, maintaining 62 percent of possession.

With 68 minutes gone, a long pass from the defense of Atlético resulted in a counter-attack that set P. Albano free through the middle, but the keeper made a spectacular diving save. The game had been going for 69 minutes when S. Chojan broke through on the right, upping the score to 0 - 3 for Reñaca, much to the home crowd's dismay. The visitors' J. Hanssen took advantage of a mix-up between the home side's goalie and center backs 75 minutes into the match. 0 - 4 for Reñaca. After 85 minutes, Reñaca's R. Marileo burst through the central defense and let loose a cannonball of a shot, scoring for 0 - 5. The statistics geek breathlessly ran into the press box to show Reñaca in control of the ball, with 62 percent possession. Thanks, Poindexter.

The local beauty queen presented Atlético's O. Dechent with a prize turducken for being named Man of the Match. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by A. Cymek today. J. Hanssen performed admirably for Reñaca. I can't remember E. Lobillo ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 0 - 5.
