63199 fans turned up at www.vtgap.vn, and despite threatening clouds, no rain came. Idomeneas Farakopoulos was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Jano Silveira and Marcin Rembalski. Our studio analysts were correct. Haiduong has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. They fielded: Rysgaard - Grando, Gandarilla, Boissevain - Tatomir, 戎金 (Rongjin) , Browne, Aytepe, 挺安 (Tingan) - Motl, Edenhall.

Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Sông Đà will go to battle in a 4-4-2 formation. The following players took the field: Veselič - Medina Espino, Nygård, Govorin, Cechak - Spolaore, Barzagli, Pöhlmann, Arangua - Smed, Andersson.

For their match strategy, Sông Đà had decided to use their titanic ability to counter-attack whenever possible. After 12 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as Sông Đà found themselves out of position and their organization level dropped to inadequate. J. Motl gave Haiduong the 1 - 0 lead, as he successfully challenged the guests' central defenders, then placed the ball at the keeper's right post – what a clinical finish! The crowd gasped as 莫. 挺安 (Tingan) of Haiduong was flattened by an opponent after 26 minutes and had to be helped off the field. J. Eskelinen hopped from the bench to replace him. 何. 戎金 (Rongjin) became the new Haiduong captain. Haiduong's J. Motl had an excellent opportunity 30 minutes in, shooting after bringing down a ball from the right, but he missed the goal by miles! It was 1 - 0 at the break. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Haiduong, with an impressive 64 percent possession of the ball.

A review of the gameplan helped Sông Đà get back to a solid organization to start the second half. F. Edenhall let loose a swerving effort from the right that the visitors' keeper did well to tip wide. Sông Đà's counter-attacks were lethal to the opposing defense, allowing T. Smed to score easily from the right side for 1 - 1. Haiduong took the lead 59 minutes in, as F. Edenhall broke through on the left and put his shot just beyond the reach of the outstretched keeper, bringing the score to 2 - 1. A. Grando gave Haiduong supporters even more to cheer about when he increased the lead to 3 - 1 after 82 minutes, following a good exchange of passes on the right that the away team failed to deal with. J. Eskelinen was not content with his team's lead, and tried to extend it 87 minutes into the game after a nice run through the middle, but his shot went wide. T. Barzagli showed why he is feared on the counter-attack, breaking through in the middle and scoring for Sông Đà after 88 minutes to make the score 3 - 2. The visitors were awarded a penalty by the referee 89 minutes into the match, much to the anger of the home crowd. T. Smed took advantage of the situation and scored to make it 3 - 3. After 89 minutes, the Haiduong coach wanted to see a new face on the field, waving P. Gandarilla off. E. Daddario took his place. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Haiduong would have 66 percent possession in this half was spot on!

F. Edenhall performed admirably for Haiduong. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because E. Daddario seemed to stumble all over the pitch. Sông Đà's best player was T. Smed. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by V. Govorin today. The match ends 3 - 3.
