OD 5 - 0 Metsis

Overcast weather free of rain made for a crowd turnout of 1683 at Riistapelto today. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Axel Engsjö and Badea Ştefănescu. The match took place on neutral ground. OD had chosen a strategic 3-5-2 formation. The following players had been chosen: Taivainen - Sundberg, Tuhkalainen, Gryaznov - Tuupanen, Reha, Luiro, Stöckell, Korpinen - Filppula, Muttonen.

Metsis tactics involved an interesting 3-4-3 combination. The following players took the field: Kautto - Iglesia, Melone, Nergård - Perälä, Wahteristo, Naskali, Vihijärvi - Hartikainen, Ðukanović, Nurmirinta.

For their match strategy, Metsis had decided to use their solid ability to counter-attack whenever possible. 11 minutes into the game, Antero Naskali almost gave the visitors the lead, as he clipped a delicate lob over the keeper, but the ball glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. OD's Timo Taivainen had to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines, after twisting his ankle with 13 minutes having been played. Antti Rantanen was the replacement. With 33 minutes played, the home side managed to get a 1 - 0 lead as Mikael Tuupanen flipped the ball in after a cross from the right. After 39 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by Markus Korpinen might have resulted in another goal for OD. However, Ville Kautto made a spectacular save. 1 - 0 was the halftime score. OD had most of the ball, with 58 percent of possession.

OD's Juhani Filppula increased the lead to 2 - 0, after he saw his shot go between the legs of the advancing goalkeeper following some good play down the right wing after 52 minutes. Stanislav Gryaznov could have put OD up one more, but he fired into the side netting after breaking free on the left after 55 minutes. After 63 minutes, the away team failed to deal with a good exchange of passes on the right, and Jukka-Pekka Muttonen gave the OD supporters even more to cheer about when he increased the lead to 3 - 0. After 69 minutes, Jukka-Pekka Muttonen put OD ahead 4 - 0 when he rose to head in a cross from the right wing. At this point, it was obvious that the players of OD lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. The corner kick from Markus Korpinen was powerfully met by the head of Stanislav Gryaznov to make the score 5 - 0. Metsis needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 75 minutes Aapeli Perälä made way for Carlos Valente. With 75 minutes played, the Metsis coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. Jesper Huvinen came on, Antero Naskali had to leave the fray. With 76 minutes played, Iisakki Sundberg could have brought this one home for OD as he charged up on the left, but his hooked ball went just a bit too high. A counterattack by Metsis after 77 minutes could have resulted in a goal, but Timo Wahteristo, coming in on the left, couldn't get the shot off. OD claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 56 percent.

OD's best player was Jukka-Pekka Muttonen. On the other hand, Antti Rantanen's play was disheartening. Most important Metsis player was Ville Kautto. Philip Melone was a disappointment, however. The match ends 5 - 0.
