A scorching day at S.S. Lazio 1900, where 55875 spectators were in place for today's match. Remus Ailenei was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Afanasijus Šakūras and Thoralf Matthias. Our studio analysts were correct. Lunacane has taken the field in a 2-5-3 alignment. The following players took the field: Najjar - Urdaneta, Aldewereld - Lapierre, Valdrighi, Galfrè, Rubino, Kleudchen - Militello, Maffezzoni, Perkkiö.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Romito prefers a 4-5-1. Let's see how this plays out for them. The following players had been selected: Ðuričić - Gilardoni, Mennella, Lozinšek, Aloisi - De Girolamo, Caldara, Vender, Mosca, Echalar - Säfstedt.

Using their world class counter-attacking abilities was the strategy of choice for Romito today. Lunacane created a good opportunity to score 9 minutes into the game when B. Lapierre's hooked ball from the left created a scuffle in front of the goal, but the visitors' defenders eventually won out. Romito almost scored after a counter-attack 16 minutes into the match, but C. De Girolamo took a shot from the left that landed harmlessly in the side netting. It was a hot and sunny day, and several players seemed worn out. Maybe this was why G. Vender found an unusual amount of space for his snappy footwork. With 31 minutes on the clock, the home side was awarded a penalty. The visitors protested wildly but the referee was adamant. J. Perkkiö easily put the 1 - 0 goal away to hand the lead to Lunacane. The home team thought they were lucky after a brilliant strike from the right bounced off the crossbar 32 minutes in. M. Caldara was first to react though, and leveled the game at 1 - 1. 1 - 1 was the score after the first half. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Lunacane had 61...61 percent possession. AH AH AH!

With the match clock at 65 minutes, Romito modified their style of play a little bit. With their counter-attack move halted after 73 minutes, Romito were left with a free kick. The ball was passed straight through to the other end of the penalty area, in an attempt to get it to P. Gilardoni. However, he didn't control well and the ball went out. Romito were able to draw a foul with their counter-attacks, but the shot from V. Mosca went into the arms of the keeper. C. De Girolamo was usually one of the fastest around, but after a few lightning-like runs, the heat seemed to have drained him of his energy. M. Maffezzoni's name was chanted throughout the stadium after his goal in minute 86 following a run up the middle gave Lunacane the 2 - 1 lead. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Lunacane, with an impressive 61 percent possession of the ball.

Most important Lunacane player was J. Perkkiö. Good thing H. Aldewereld isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. Romito's best player was P. Säfstedt. I can't remember V. Mosca ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 2 - 1.
