Dark skies made the crowd of 27161 at Macallè Dome a little nervous, but the rain held off. David Ingesson was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Murat Oğultekin. Our studio analysts were correct. gasgas has taken the field in a 5-3-2 alignment. The following players had been selected: Gioli - Galtarossa, Penna, Mianowany, Guadagnali, Chasqueira - van Turenhout, Bernabei, Rick - Gotha, El-Ameen.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Gialloblues prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. Lineup: Koşak - Elizalde, Stevanella, Nicoletti - Pulis, Aldana, Zuain, Helbo, Zaffarese - Weiss, Assa.

With 20 minutes of the match played, a comedy of errors by the home side gave the visitors a chance at the lead, but S. Assa, after dashing down on goal from the left and finding himself with only the keeper to beat, sliced his shot horribly wide. Oh dear - the keeper's made a mess of that one. The crowd was very disappointed after he let G. Stevanella get the go-ahead goal with a speculative shot from the right after 23 minutes. 0 - 1. The crowd roared in delight as L. Guadagnali finished off a spectacular series of plays up the middle to even the score for gasgas after 32 minutes. 1 - 1. It was 1 - 1 at the break. The forty-five minutes were dominated by gasgas, with an impressive 56 percent possession of the ball.

46 minutes into the match, the referee signaled for a gasgas substitution. D. Cunha Filho came on for H. El-Ameen. gasgas had a good opportunity to take the lead as R. Mianowany came up the left side, but he struck the ball weakly and it went straight into the arms of A. Koşak. After 59 minutes, gasgas's R. Rick successfully broke up a pass with his face. Instinctively, he got up again only to unintentionally use his now-throbbing schnozz to break up a second pass. As he was carted off for a concussion check, K. Høyer ran onto the field to take his place. Gialloblues will have to work out a different routine for indirect free kicks. Though it looked well-rehearsed, their play after 68 minutes was easily anticipated by the opposition and the attackers simply had nowhere to go. R. van Turenhout was very close to giving gasgas the lead with an ingenious free kick routine after 76 minutes, but the ball just grazed the bar. Some great play up the middle by gasgas led to a chance for P. Gotha to get the go-ahead goal with 79 minutes played, but the shot hit the crossbar. gasgas did a good job holding on to the ball, with 59 percent of possession.

gasgas's best player was P. Gotha. I can't remember D. Cunha Filho ever having a worse night than he just had. Gialloblues's top performer was clearly P. Weiss. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by D. Nicoletti today. The match ends 1 - 1.
