56036 fans turned up at "Hahn, Banach, Beppo, Levi & Kolmogorov" Stadium, and despite threatening clouds, no rain came. Pablo Méndez was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Jörn Malmquist and Aiolos Kokas. Our studio analysts were correct. Athlantis has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. The following players had been selected: Giannuzzi - Choulis, Chen, Schwerdtel - Hyry, Hallstrand, Labuť, Airinei, Scatozza - Panciuc, Durey.

Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Blueprint will go to battle in a 4-5-1 formation. Lineup: Caggiano - Kandor, Ocampo, Arena, Bolsius - Muresan, Berisha, Asandei, Olah, Marcovici - Pârvu.

Athlantis could have put themselves ahead after 4 minutes but G. Airinei mishit a volley on a ball coming in from the right. Athlantis had a good opportunity to take the lead as R. Chen came up the left side, but he struck the ball weakly and it went straight into the arms of A. Caggiano. After 26 minutes, Blueprint put themselves up 0 - 1, as G. Marcovici finished off a play from the left with a real rocket. Athlantis's J. Hyry sent an early cross that saw the defenders caught out of position and the alert M. Durey was able to pounce and roll the ball past the hapless netminder to make the score 1 - 1. Some quick footwork on the left side of the field 40 minutes into the match left Blueprint's R. Ocampo completely free to score. 1 - 2 for the visitors. 1 - 2 was the halftime score. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Blueprint, with an impressive 52 percent possession of the ball.

The bicycle kick from G. Marcovici would have been the Goal of the Year for Blueprint, had it not hit the post. With the scoreboard showing that 54 minutes had been played, Blueprint nearly put themselves up another goal after F. Pârvu came through on the left. Fortunately for the home crowd, the keeper made the save. 66 minutes into the game, A. Choulis came close to leveling the score with a dangerous shot from the center of the area that went just over the bar. Blueprint's F. Pârvu was shown a yellow card after 84 minutes for slicing down an opponent. N. Panciuc pulled a rabbit out of his hat as he wove through the guest's entire central defense and put the 2 - 2 equalizer away after 85 minutes. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Blueprint would have 51 percent possession in this half was spot on!

The most outstanding Athlantis player was without a doubt A. Choulis. I can't remember R. Scatozza ever having a worse night than he just had. Most important Blueprint player was G. Marcovici. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because R. Ocampo seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 2 - 2.
