lopu 2 - 3 betulo

Weather conditions were fairly good for football, and FC lopu bars Arena saw a crowd turnout of 2318. Lambertus van Otterlo was the appointed referee. lopu tactics involved an interesting 3-5-2 combination. Lineup: Rajala - Vergelis, Magarevich, Agiriano - Podsevalov, Charles, Murugov, Zīle, Veckungs - Lattimer, Gorenčič.

betulo decided to use a 4-4-2 set up. They fielded: Rares - Zilmiņš, van de Biggelaar, De Rocker, Pozuelo - Luzón, Odelzhausen, Afeltowicz, Damstra - Grandolfo, Eğilmez.

lopu mostly ignored the flanks in favour of their ability to attack in the middle. The visiting G. Eğilmez was booed thoroughly by the home crowd 19 minutes into the game, after he broke through the middle and scored, resulting in the visitors taking the lead. 0 - 1 was the score. 21 minutes into the match, betulo's F. Damstra demonstrated his famed speed as he raced past his marker and passed the ball to G. Eğilmez who chipped it in for 0 - 2. By now, the players in betulo felt that victory was guaranteed and began to play it safe, focusing on defence and not risking too much going forward. lopu almost scored after a swift counterattack 23 minutes into the game, but R. Zīle put the shot from the left flank just outside the goal. betulo's F. Damstra left the field after 33 minutes because of a nasty blow to the shin. His replacement was H. Väre. 0 - 2 was the halftime score. betulo had most of the ball, with 53 percent of possession.

The betulo players could smell victory in the air. A. Rares wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for J. Masdeu after 57 minutes. With 60 minutes played, betulo's well-worked indirect free kick caused havoc in the penalty area, and when the ball eventually fell to P. van de Biggelaar he gleefully slotted the ball home to make it 0 - 3. I. Vergelis sailed high above the opponents as he headed in a corner kick from K. Magarevich after 62 minutes of play, making the score 1 - 3. lopu's M. Charles was shown a yellow card after 78 minutes for slicing down an opponent. betulo came close to extending their lead as B. Odelzhausen delivered a low effort on goal from the right after 81 minutes, but the angle was too narrow and the shot went harmlessly into the side netting. A corner kick created great disorder in the penalty area with a goal nearly scored by R. Zīle. At last, lopu's I. Vergelis was able to backheel the ball in. 2 - 3. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by betulo, with 53 percent of the ball.

The most dominating lopu player was without a doubt S. Gorenčič. K. Magarevich turned in a dismal performance, however. H. Väre performed admirably for betulo. On the other hand, M. Zilmiņš's play was disheartening. The match ends 2 - 3.
