Athletic 2 - 3 Keina

1041 spectators had come to Stade des 2 Lions this cloudy day. Adrian Amnar was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Bernd Tremesberger and . After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Athletic decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. The following players had been selected: Charpentier - Martínez Berro, Tancredi, Weyermann - Gaudy, Pozemko, Guillochet, Gallerand, Valet - Orszewski, Péquignot.

Our studio analysts were correct. Keina has taken the field in a 2-5-3 alignment. Lineup: Landström - Dorival, Jouve - Batard, Rostaing, Grosjean, Morel, Hospital - Kłodowski, Quitarrà, Grönqvist.

Keina took the lead after 20 minutes making the score 0 - 1. The keeper had no chance on M. Grönqvist's fine volley after a cross from the left. Keina came close to extending their lead as É. Batard delivered a low effort on goal from the right but the angle was too sharp, and the shot was destined for the side netting. 28 minutes into the game a free kick by N. Jouve found its way right through the home side's poorly assembled wall, making Keina's lead 0 - 2. By now, the players of Keina felt that victory was a sure thing and began to play it safe, focusing on defense and not risking too much going forward. Keina's M. Grönqvist made it through the home team's defense on the right hand side 29 minutes into the match. After rounding the keeper, he only had to place the ball in the unguarded net when a defender slid in and cleared the ball off the line. Athletic's counter-attacks were lethal to the opposing defense, allowing R. Martínez Berro to score easily from the right side for 1 - 2. Halftime score was 1 - 2. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Keina, with an impressive 59 percent possession of the ball.

Athletic's M. Pozemko placed the ball right at his teammate's feet after a corner, but M. Tancredi couldn't finish. A. Hospital increased the visitors' lead by volleying in a pass from the right. 1 - 3. The home club's fans got back into the match when R. Martínez Berro broke through the visitors' central defense and caught their keeper napping, making it 2 - 3. After more pushing and shoving than a pack of helicopter moms trying to get the last appointment for their snowflakes to see the Easter Bunny, Athletic's B. Weyermann finally got himself booked for a foul. A defender managed to keep the ball from crossing the goal-line after a curling shot from the right by M. Grönqvist beat the keeper with 73 minutes played, preventing Keina from going up another goal. Athletic's coach was furious with M. Pozemko after he picked up a yellow for saying one too many words to the ref. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Keina would have 61 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Athletic's best player was W. Orszewski. Good thing F. Charpentier isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. G. Morel performed admirably for Keina. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because L. Landström seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 2 - 3.
