tavana 5 - 1 saina

1067 fans braved the pouring rain at arian Arena. Tomas Bohlund was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Lutz Nicolas Wenighofer and Tonny Taal. The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and tavana formed up in a 3-4-3 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. The following players took the field: Lackner - Piętka, Mujunen, Ziegler - Larsson, Steen Nielsen, Cabral, Sommer-Schneppendahl - Uçkaç, Jørgensen, Kargol.

Our studio analysts were correct. saina has taken the field in a 3-4-3 alignment. Starters: Kartano - Camboraín, Duisburg, Doğan - Ceresato, Liendl, Barbagli, Ślusarski - Borsi, Ottl, Bazi.

Today, tavana's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their excellent ability. saina's goal to take the lead 0 - 1 came via a questionable penalty, but N. Ślusarski drove it home without a second thought. 14 minutes in, saina appeared unsure on how to play and their organization was only passable. The boggy field disrupted the game, especially for technical players like J. Ottl who couldn't move the ball with his usual delicate touches. Due to some great work on the right wing tavana's P. Larsson was able to even the score 19 minutes in to 1 - 1. With 22 minutes played, saina's Ç. Doğan received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. A. Sommer-Schneppendahl had a grin on his face as he raced past the weaker players, nearly oblivious to the rain. M. Uçkaç gave tavana the 2 - 1 lead, as he successfully challenged the guests' central defenders, then placed the ball at the keeper's right post – what a clinical finish! A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased tavana's lead to 3 - 1 as P. Mujunen finished it off clinically, firing the shot from a terrible angle. B. Bazi slipped and slid in the wet grass. His usual rapid runs were nowhere to be seen today. 38 minutes had passed when tavana put themselves up 4 - 1 after the visiting defenders lost the ball to M. Uçkaç, who came up from the left and proceeded to easily go around the goalkeeper and knock the ball home. After this, you could see that tavana's players were mostly interested in killing time and holding on to their lead. 4 - 1 was the score after the first half. The battle in midfield was tight, with possession split evenly between the teams.

saina's coach had to raise his voice a little, but he also managed to raise his players' organization to solid after reviewing his strategy. tavana's A. Sommer-Schneppendahl wanted to play on, but after 46 minutes the decision was made to give C. Frassanito a chance in his place. Content with how the game was proceeding, the tavana coach let J. Rütti come on for D. Steen Nielsen after 50 minutes. With 50 minutes played, the saina coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. F. Hataminejad came on and J. Ottl had to leave the fray. P. Mujunen had put in a good 60 minutes and left the field with a smile on his face due to his team's lead. V. Faccini was the replacement. After 61 minutes, saina substituted A. Barbagli for B. Soares, hoping for a quick impact on the field. Some things can only be learned through experience, and Ç. Doğan should take his lesson to heart after nearly gifting tavana a goal after 64 minutes. 70 minutes into the game, saina's attack got through on the right, but B. Bazi couldn't control the ball and his feeble kick wound up in the keeper's arms. 73 minutes into the game, saina seemed a little tentative in their play as their organization fell to passable. tavana's P. Larsson saw his fine effort strike the top of the bar following some good work up the middle by his teammates 77 minutes in. The home crowd just couldn't believe it when P. Larsson missed a penalty with 83 minutes of the match played. 83 minutes in, E. Borsi made an incredible run up the middle and nearly reduced the home side's lead, but H. Lackner refused to let the ball slip by him. tavana managed to extend their lead to 5 - 1 when J. Kargol slid in neatly from the left side and struck a fine shot past the away team's goalkeeper. The forty-five minutes were dominated by tavana, with an impressive 51 percent possession of the ball.

S. Jørgensen performed admirably for tavana. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by C. Frassanito today. saina's best player was E. Borsi. Good thing W. Kartano isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 5 - 1.
