G_ilad 0 - 3 maccabi

48063 spectators had found their way to gilad arena, despite the heavy rain. Yiotis Fterougas was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Jerzy Gątarek and Goh Teck Pin. The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and G_ilad formed up in a 3-5-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. The following players had been selected: Aniţă - Picapiedra, Baranes, Bachar - Erez, Elkabets, Glikman, Telem, Shirazi - Benado, Mínguez.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, maccabi decided to go with a 4-4-2 formation. They fielded: Hackl - Zhantevski, Bosman, Viilup, Arriaga - Paul, Ahumada, Kotenev, Mosnier - Berliński, Cabale.

G_ilad used their supernatural ability to concentrate their attacks in the middle of the field. Using their outstanding counter-attacking abilities was the strategy of choice for maccabi today. The slippery field made speedy runs nearly impossible, which hampered J. Berliński in particular. Though it was beautiful soccer, the home crowd did not enjoy R. Cabale's goal after a run down the left with 19 minutes on the clock. maccabi lead, 0 - 1. Halftime score was 0 - 1. G_ilad were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 53 percent of possession.

A. Erez was uncomfortable with the soggy field as he couldn't move the ball around with his usual grace. A thrilling play through the middle after 76 minutes gave maccabi's K. Zhantevski a chance to increase the lead, and he happily obliged. The score was then 0 - 2. R. Cabale increased the visitors' lead by volleying in a pass from the right. 0 - 3. After this, you could see that maccabi's players were mostly interested in killing time and holding on to their lead. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that G_ilad would have 54 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Most important G_ilad player was Y. Glikman. Speaking of stinking up the place, O. Bachar sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The most outstanding maccabi player was without a doubt R. Hackl. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by S. Mosnier today. The match ends 0 - 3.
