The local marching band welcomed a crowd of 42000 to acropolis arena. Sybren Bleeker was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Fredrik Rahmtorp and Giuseppe Ingrassia. Gentlemen prefer blondes and athletic prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. They fielded: Irazábal - Valda, Galán, Abajo - Bonner, Laón, Benítez, Geering, Ramis - Ródez, Vega Téllez.

Our studio analysts were correct. STEMCELLS has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. The following players had been selected: Marín - Regadas, Vélez, Elgucena - Peña, Queirón, García, Danguso, Perales - Risca, Fišer.

With 22 minutes gone, the home side took a 1 - 0 lead as J. Ródez raced down the right flank and casually flipped the ball into the net after a searing cross from the far side of the pitch. With 23 minutes played, STEMCELLS's I. García received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. The home side's R. Vega Téllez came close to extending the lead after 36 minutes. His shot came in from the right but I. Marín managed to push it wide with his fingertips. In minute 40, R. Vega Téllez put athletic ahead 2 - 0 with a tremendous free kick. 2 - 0 was the halftime score. The statistics geek breathlessly ran into the press box to show STEMCELLS in control of the ball, with 51 percent possession. Thanks, Poindexter.

STEMCELLS needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 46 minutes P. Regadas made way for A. Johansson. Morale on the visitors' bench was greatly improved when their player E. Risca scored to make it 2 - 1 after 51 minutes, following a good pass from the right. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased athletic's lead to 3 - 1 as J. Ródez finished it off clinically, firing the shot from a terrible angle. Things were going from bad to worse for the visitors. R. Vega Téllez was able to squirm through the central defense after 75 minutes and score, bringing the lead to 4 - 1. The forty-five minutes were dominated by STEMCELLS, with an impressive 51 percent possession of the ball.

The most outstanding athletic player was without a doubt J. Ródez. It wasn't Star Wars night, but P. Abajo sure smelled like bantha poodoo. Most important STEMCELLS player was A. Queirón. I can't remember I. Marín ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 4 - 1.
