Dark skies made the crowd of 33351 at nec plus ultra a little nervous, but the rain held off. Donald Eekhof was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Robert Laks and Per Strömkvist. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Pantoffeltierchen will go to battle in a 3-5-2 formation. Lineup: Gazca - Torres Cabrera, Garbsen, Ćirić - Grandovec, Dolinar, Przybyło, Maslar, Kulkki - Ciobanu, Oğuzer.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Škis prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. The following players took the field: Dürrschmidt - Bak, Tranchand, Sadio - Pronk, Marty, 項鵬 (Xiangpeng) , Delucchi, Kotro - Gleyze, Herre.

S. Oğuzer's Road Runner-esque speed was too much for J. Tranchand who could only look on as the Pantoffeltierchen player blasted one home. 1 - 0. After 29 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by J. Maslar might have resulted in another goal for Pantoffeltierchen. However, A. Dürrschmidt made a spectacular save. Coming in from the right, V. Kulkki almost managed to score another goal for Pantoffeltierchen, but his header was kept out by the lightning fast reflexes of the visiting keeper. H. Grandovec seemed to be defying gravity as he elegantly headed in a goal for Pantoffeltierchen after a corner kick that was nicely executed by J. Torres Cabrera. That makes it 2 - 0. Confident in their lead, Pantoffeltierchen's players relaxed and focused more on defending the lead than increasing it. The home side's R. Ciobanu came close to extending the lead after 42 minutes. His shot came in from the right but A. Dürrschmidt managed to push it wide with his fingertips. A swat on the tuchus is all it took to keep Škis's S. Kotro in the match after injuring his achilles tendon. The ball is in play and we're underway again after 44 minutes have been played. 2 - 0 was the score after the first half. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Pantoffeltierchen would have 55 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Pantoffeltierchen's S. Oğuzer wanted to play on, but after 46 minutes the decision was made to give J. Lazarevič a chance in his place. Pantoffeltierchen's opponents know to be wary of V. Kulkki's speed, but it made little difference as he blew past the defense 47 minutes into the match. Only the keeper could stop him - and he did with a perfectly timed dive! O. Sadio had a good opportunity to reply with a break through the middle, but the home team's goalkeeper F. Gazca just wouldn't be beat. 70 minutes into the game, Pantoffeltierchen adjusted their style of play and hoped to close out the game with their lead intact. Content with how the game was proceeding, the Pantoffeltierchen coach let N. Bajželj come on for T. Przybyło after 72 minutes. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Pantoffeltierchen, with an impressive 59 percent possession of the ball.

Most important Pantoffeltierchen player was J. Lazarevič. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because V. Ćirić seemed to stumble all over the pitch. Škis's top performer was clearly G. Gleyze. Good thing A. Dürrschmidt isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 2 - 0.
