It was an exceptionally sunny day for the crowd of 5663 that came out to -cuervorium-. Hampus Stjärngren was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Luigi Maria Rigo and Frithjof Grabenberger. A 3-5-2 alignment was the formation of choice for -cuervo-. Starters: López - Nekrylov, Nihti, Håkansson - Mendoza, Gómez de Rivero, Pareras, Ordóñez, Lancashire - Balbás Fernández, Ecay.

Diablos started off with a 3-4-3 lineup. They fielded: Schiltz - Ayetxu, Bota, Gonzalo - Aduna, von Treuenfels, de Luaces, Genov - Kouki, Šehagić, Võsu.

-cuervo- were mostly trying to use their skill at attacking on the flanks. The wings were the focus of most of Diablos's attacks today. They were singing the praises of C. Lancashire 18 minutes into the match after his speculative chip from the middle of the penalty box found its way over the visitors' keeper to make the score 1 - 0 to -cuervo-. The sun seemed to put E. Balbás Fernández in a great mood, and he showed off his technical skills all match long. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased the lead of -cuervo- to 2 - 0 as C. Pareras finished it off competently, firing in from an acute angle. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, F. Gonzalo got himself booked. The manager of Diablos was not happy. The home team's fans were upset when, after 37 minutes, the visiting A. Kouki broke through the central defence and kicked the ball past the keeper. 2 - 1 was the score. The score became 3 - 1 at 40 minutes into the game, when -cuervo- were given a penalty which O. Nekrylov blasted straight down the middle giving the keeper no chance! There was concern in the stands when, at the 41 minute mark, -cuervo-'s E. López hit the ground hard, but he refused the attention of the trainer and rejoined his teammates on the pitch. Halftime score was 3 - 1. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by -cuervo-, with 58 percent of the ball.

The heat made it a terrible day for J. Võsu, who seemed unable to keep up with the other players. With 51 minutes played, -cuervo- put themselves up 4 - 1 when the visiting defenders lost the ball to U. Håkansson, who came up from the left and proceeded to coolly round the keeper and knock the ball home. At this point, it was obvious that the players of -cuervo- lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. 56 minutes into the match, Diablos replied and reduced the lead to 4 - 2. K. von Treuenfels scored on a marvellous cross pass coming in from the left. Against a lesser team, -cuervo- could very well have succeeded with their smart indirect free kick routine after 57 minutes. A trio of passes took the ball all the way past the defenders, but by then the intended recipient was already blocked off and the keeper could make a leisurely save. Players in -cuervo- heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their central attacks to the wings instead. -cuervo-'s C. Lancashire had an excellent opportunity after 63 minutes, shooting after receiving a pass from the right hand side, but he missed the goal by miles! C. Pareras could have increased the lead after 64 minutes, but his shot hit the post after a nice combination in the middle of the park. A. Gómez de Rivero increased the lead for -cuervo- to 5 - 2, getting a head onto a hooked ball from the right. The ball looked to have taken a deflection on the way in, but he's claiming it! -cuervo- claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 61 percent.

Most important -cuervo- player was E. Balbás Fernández. On the other hand, E. López's play was disheartening. Diablos's best player was A. Kouki. B. Bota turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 5 - 2.
