levski 0 - 4 Andres

A brilliantly sunny day had enticed a crowd of 2193 to Levski Sofia. Nadav Shapira was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Agostino Bonasio and Antoñito Cataldo. levski started off with a 4-4-2 lineup. They fielded: Albino - Donina, Tapin, Trường, Simmons - Jouanin, Minton, Parent, Spear - Yanez, Quinn.

Andres had chosen a strategic 4-5-1 formation. Lineup: Rufino - Batalla, Nogier, Kövesi, Pietronero - Solís, Sammalinen, Gago, Mendonça Pina, Zecchin - Künster.

levski were mostly trying to use their skill at attacking on the flanks. Pressing was the tactic of the day for Andres. Andres's J. Nogier managed to lose the defenders as he burst through the right side and scored, putting the visitors ahead, 0 - 1. After 25 minutes, Andres's P. Sammalinen successfully broke up a pass with his face. Instinctively, he got up again only to unintentionally use his now-throbbing schnozz to break up a second pass. As he was carted off for a concussion check, O. Cederholt ran onto the field to take his place. 29 minutes into the game a free kick by W. Mendonça Pina found its way right through the home side's poorly assembled wall, making Andres's lead 0 - 2. At this time in the match, Andres were using their skill at pressing to successfully stifle the game. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 2. Andres were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 62 percent of possession.

As usual, K. Simmons tried to use his strength and hard work for the benefit of the team, but the heat hit him hard on this day and he couldn't keep up his pace at all. After 61 minutes, a mistake by the home side's left defense allowed G. Gago to get through. He outclassed the home side's keeper, adding another goal for the visitors. 0 - 3. 62 minutes into the game, A. Zecchin had to leave the field due to a knee injury. In came N. Zervidis. The referee showed Andres's V. Pietronero the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. The visitors' I. Künster took advantage of a mix-up between the home side's goalie and center backs 71 minutes into the match. 0 - 4 for Andres. After this, you could see that Andres's players were mostly interested in killing time and holding on to their lead. levski's coach was furious with V. Tapin after he picked up a yellow for saying one too many words to the ref. Several players seemed a little dazed by the warm weather, and were repeatedly tricked by the clever and agile T. Trường. The pressing tactics used by Andres were successful as the ball didn't make it out of the middle third very much. There was concern in the stands when, at the 83 minute mark, levski's F. Spear hit the ground hard, but with the help of the trainer's magic spray, he rejoined his teammates on the field. Andres won the midfield battle for the half, with 65 percent possession of the ball.

levski's best player was Q. Jouanin. On the other hand, K. Simmons's play was disheartening. Most important Andres player was I. Künster. L. Kövesi on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 0 - 4.
