Everyone was excited about the upcoming Aargau
derby and the crowd was divided evenly.
A 4-4-2 alignment was the formation of choice for Aarau.
The following players had been chosen: Autrix - Dobbeler, Pyle, Filli, Richer - Knöpfli, Gehrig, Grognuz, Zopfi - Grosjean, Soret.
Opportunitätskosten had chosen a strategic 4-4-2 formation.
They fielded: Güntlisberger - Markwardt, Obbomhofen, Zerres, Heilmann - Walthert, Devos, Zysset, Huebner - Dikk, Guéry.
Opportunitätskosten's A. Dikk
managed to lose the defenders as he advanced down the right wing and scored, putting the visitors ahead after 21 minutes. 0 - 1.
After 26 minutes, a mistake by the home side's left defence allowed R. Obbomhofen
to get through. He outclassed the home side's keeper, adding another goal for the visitors. 0 - 2.
Confident in their lead, Opportunitätskosten's players relaxed and focused more on defending the lead than increasing it.
Opportunitätskosten's C. Heilmann
was shown a yellow card after 35 minutes for slicing down an opponent.
It was 0 - 2 at the break.
Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Opportunitätskosten, with 54 percent of the ball.
With 51 minutes played, seemingly due to lack of experience, I. Devos
needlessly tripped an opponent just outside the penalty area, but the free kick that followed didn't succeed.
Opportunitätskosten increased the lead to 0 - 3 as G. Markwardt
scored from the penalty spot, putting the ball in near the top left corner.
The referee showed Aarau's C. Grosjean
the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge.
Opportunitätskosten's F. Guéry
made it through the home team's defence on the right hand side 71 minutes into the match. After rounding the keeper, he only had to place the ball in the unguarded goal when a defender slid in and cleared the ball off the line.
Aarau's C. Grosjean
had to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines, after twisting his ankle with 82 minutes having been played. P. Arensberg
was the replacement.
Opportunitätskosten had most of the ball, with 57 percent of possession.
The most dominating Aarau player was without a doubt E. Filli
turned in a dismal performance, however.
Opportunitätskosten's top performer was clearly R. Walthert
was a disappointment, however.
The match ends 0 - 3.
