It was an exceptionally sunny day for the crowd of 843 that came out to cabau team Arena. Carlos María Tévez was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Janno Pöppler. Our studio analysts were correct. cabau has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. Lineup: Breazu - de Lima, Reif-Pöhner, Rivas Pérez - Halcón, Liśkiewicz, Screciu, Nordsee, Rembelski - Irureta, Zabaleta.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Wirifriski formed up in a 4-5-1 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. Starters: Gebauer - Heidenstein, Eppe, Duatti, Ruggieri - Domański, Abade, Obada, Vas-Fillado, Señor - Manrique Coto.

cabau went for a narrow approach, using their brilliant ability to focus their attacks down the middle. Today, Wirifriski's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their outstanding ability. The bleachers were silenced after 12 minutes when Wirifriski's J. Manrique Coto put the guests ahead 0 - 1, following an attack on the right. The home fans looked somber as they watched their team give up another goal, this one coming from their right as S. Vas-Fillado put one through the keeper's legs. 0 - 2 after 21 minutes. At this point, it was obvious that the players of Wirifriski lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. Attacking on the wings was the theme of the day for Wirifriski, and they were successfully passing the ball outside from the middle. P. Domański increased the visitors' lead by volleying in a pass from the right. 0 - 3. Maybe it was because of his team's lead, or maybe it was due to the ease with which he broke down the left, but C. Señor was a bit too sure of his talents, so instead of taking the easy tap-in goal after 29 minutes, he went for the backheel, which he put woefully wide. Players in Wirifriski heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their central attacks to the wings instead. The game had been going for 30 minutes when S. Vas-Fillado broke through on the right, upping the score to 0 - 4 for Wirifriski, much to the home crowd's dismay. Halftime score was 0 - 4. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Wirifriski would have 74 percent possession in this half was spot on!

The sunny day didn't make things easy for A. Liśkiewicz who wasn't his usual powerful self on the field. The bench was restless, and with 68 minutes gone cabau's coach gave J. Moreta the opportunity to try to change the team's fortunes. J. Irureta reluctantly left the field. A swat on the tuchus is all it took to keep Wirifriski's E. Heidenstein in the match after injuring his achilles tendon. The ball is in play and we're underway again after 69 minutes have been played. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, cabau's J. Rivas Pérez was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the field after 72 minutes. S. Adaimi was given a chance to change things around. Wirifriski set the tempo, maintaining 71 percent of possession.

cabau's top performer was clearly D. Zabaleta. Good thing J. Moreta isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. M. Obada performed admirably for Wirifriski. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by C. Señor today. The match ends 0 - 4.
