The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 12225 had shown up at Inferno da Luz for the match. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Latif Sazak and Elias Pohti. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Marques decided to go with a 4-5-1 formation. Starters: Queiró - Pena, Fardeau, Boutry, Sobreiro - Marques, Piedade Santos, Navarrete, Montenegro, Paiva Gonçalves - Pineda.

Our studio analysts were correct. Coibeira has taken the field in a 4-4-2 alignment. The following players took the field: Burnos - Dumont, De Simone, Barrera, Seebauer - Van Droogenbroeck, Gnevers, Cvijetinović, Körmendi - Flóventsson, Baesa.

Marques has displayed weak talent to press and shut down attacks all over the field. Coibeira saw most attack opportunities on the wings by using their solid ability to push the attack in the right direction. Marques had a good opportunity to take the lead as J. Sobreiro came up the left side, but he struck the ball weakly and it went straight into the arms of P. Burnos. Marques broke through on the left after 32 minutes, with R. Pena firing at an impossible angle to give the home side a 1 - 0 lead. Coibeira had to make a substitution after 34 minutes. D. Cvijetinović apparently was hit by a thrown bottle of Schlitz by one of the opposing players' fans, and now reeks of blood and bad beer. While the coach remonstrated with the side official about the situation, F. Letizia finished his warmups and came on. After a play down the right 35 minutes into the match, Marques's J. Sobreiro unleashed a ferocious shot that smashed into the roof of the net - after going over the crossbar. E. Pineda increased Marques's lead to 2 - 0, connecting with a hooked ball from the right. The away fans are claiming handball, to no avail. Halftime score was 2 - 0. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Marques would have 57 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Cheers filled the stadium as N. Marques broke through the visitors' central defense to put away the 3 - 0 goal for Marques. 79 minutes into the game, V. Gnevers had to leave the field due to a knee injury. In came T. Rovisco. The Marques players could smell victory in the air. J. Navarrete wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for A. Martins Antunes after 84 minutes. Marques did a good job holding on to the ball, with 62 percent of possession.

Most important Marques player was E. Pineda. Good thing Á. Piedade Santos isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. O. Van Droogenbroeck performed admirably for Coibeira. Speaking of stinking up the place, T. Rovisco sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The match ends 3 - 0.
