The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 34973 had shown up at moldavia Arena for the match. Sämi Hentsch was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Kelvin Cornello and Mathew Anscom. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, moldavia decided to go with a 4-5-1 formation. The following players took the field: Zãvoianu - Anca, Johnston, Hempte, Krapfl - Dabija, 仲梁 (Zhongliang) , Feyzikov, Filip, Popa - Filipescu.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and andromeda_ prefers a 4-3-3. Let's see how this plays out for them. Starters: Hurwitz - Martim, De Backer, Lanci, Bäckerberg - Pourcelot, Negrea, Jansson - Popică, Arbós, Trikefalos.

moldavia showed off their creative tactics. Many fans are yawning as andromeda_ appears to be more enamored of using their weak pressing skills to smother the opponents' attacks rather than create attacks of their own. But all will be forgiven if it achieves a good result. moldavia had a good opportunity to take the lead as J. Krapfl came up the left side, but he struck the ball weakly and it went straight into the arms of A. Hurwitz. moldavia took the lead 25 minutes in, after P. Filipescu's awkward, but ultimately successful, shot from the right. 1 - 0. 1 - 0 was the score after the first half. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that moldavia would have 71 percent possession in this half was spot on!

69 minutes in, andromeda_ appeared unsure on how to play and their organization was only passable. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased moldavia's lead to 2 - 0 as P. Filipescu finished it off clinically, firing the shot from a terrible angle. By now, the players of moldavia felt that victory was a sure thing and began to play it safe, focusing on defense and not risking too much going forward. A beautiful, arcing corner kick from P. Hempte found N. Johnston at the far post, soaring to meet the ball. The keeper is late and he's headed it in for 3 - 0! andromeda_ needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 89 minutes G. Lanci made way for R. Waldeck. moldavia did a good job holding on to the ball, with 75 percent of possession.

moldavia's best player was N. Dabija. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because N. Johnston seemed to stumble all over the pitch. andromeda_'s top performer was clearly P. Bäckerberg. I can't remember R. Waldeck ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 3 - 0.
