70000 spectators arrived at Arena apsurda, where weather conditions were pretty good for soccer. Yordan Filipovich was the appointed referee. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Toljage will go to battle in a 3-5-2 formation. They fielded: Lutchenkov - Kalinić, Marinescu, Bayer - Zorrinho, Štakić, Pilla, Rolfsson, Gatzemeyer - Soldevilla, Giftos.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Plitvica prefers a 4-4-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. The following players took the field: Carré - Sáenz Tabernero, Čekmonas, Hutek, Jaekel - Pagh, de Melker, Capan, Spicher - Pećnik, Strpić.

A magical level of counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of Plitvica. After 3 minutes of play, J. Bayer gave the home team a 1 - 0 lead after an attack coming in from the right. Toljage's M. Giftos had an excellent opportunity 20 minutes in, shooting after bringing down a ball from the right, but he missed the goal by miles! After a play down the right 39 minutes into the match, Toljage's M. Giftos unleashed a ferocious shot that smashed into the roof of the net - after going over the crossbar. A great save by keeper J. Carré with 40 minutes gone kept the visitors in the game after L. Zorrinho struck from the left with a real cannonball. 1 - 0 was the score after the first half. Toljage were doing a good job holding on to the ball, with 74 percent of possession.

The score became 2 - 0 with 54 minutes played, when Toljage were given a penalty. J. Pilla made no mistake and increased the home lead. With the clock showing 61 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of Plitvica resulted in a counter-attack that was smoothly brought under control by H. Spicher in the center of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. Toljage's M. Giftos wanted to play on, but after 68 minutes the decision was made to give B. Atasoy a chance in his place. R. Soldevilla let loose a swerving effort from the right that the visitors' keeper did well to tip wide. Feeling like a boy about to meet his girlfriend's father for the first time, the inexperienced Toljage struggled to maintain their level of play after 88 minutes. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Toljage would have 74 percent possession in this half was spot on!

The most outstanding Toljage player was without a doubt R. Soldevilla. I can't remember M. Marinescu ever having a worse night than he just had. Plitvica's top performer was clearly D. Pećnik. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because M. Hutek seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 2 - 0.
