CA 1 - 3 L_P_A

13293 spectators had found their way to Estadio Ramon de Carranza, despite the heavy rain. Olli Pitkäaho was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Johannes George Strebe and . Our studio analysts were correct. CA has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. The following players had been selected: Salaun - Ballesteros, Vulin, Egues - Toro, Della Giovanna, Cifer, Sánchez Ochoa, Muntada - Abdollahi, André.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, L_P_A decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. Lineup: Bronsart - Serra, Sevilla, Canoura - Faraglia, Della Bianca, Butseraen, Eaves, Johansson - Balaguer, Bergamaschi.

CA mostly ignored the flanks in favor of their magnificent ability to attack in the middle. The boggy field disrupted the game, especially for technical players like R. Serra who couldn't move the ball with his usual delicate touches. F. Della Giovanna could have put CA into the lead with 33 minutes played, but the free kick went just wide. CA had a good opportunity to take the lead as S. André came up the left side, but he struck the ball weakly and it went straight into the arms of W. Bronsart. L_P_A's defense sent a ball soaring up the middle on a beautiful counter-attack with 35 minutes gone, but J. Canoura's finish was met by the firm hands of the keeper. K. Butseraen is such a powerful player - he hardly even noticed the downpour and bravely fought on through the swampy field. 37 minutes into the game, C. Faraglia almost gave the visitors the lead, as he chipped a delicate lob over the keeper, but the ball glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. CA's D. Abdollahi tried to break through the middle repeatedly, but the visitors' defenders were just too alert. The bleachers were silenced after 39 minutes when L_P_A's P. Balaguer put the guests ahead 0 - 1, following an attack on the right. CA had a good opportunity to attack on the wing, but remembered their instructions to go for middle instead. A series of fine plays up the middle should have led to a goal for CA, but S. André's shot went over the bar. 42 minutes into the match, K. Butseraen came through the middle and almost added to his team's lead, but the shot went wide. 0 - 1 was the halftime score. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that CA had 61...61 percent possession. AH AH AH!

It was obvious that CA had instructions to attack in the middle when they directed a break on the wing into the center of the park. After 49 minutes of play, F. Della Giovanna evened things up for CA with an impressive goal coming up the middle. 1 - 1. Proving that a foot massage and a pre-game pedicure can work wonders, V. Bergamaschi sent a rocket into the box from the corner, finding C. Faraglia, who headed it past the keeper with extreme prejudice. 51 minutes in and it's 1 - 2! Central attacks were the recipe of the day for CA, and they were successfully passing the ball from the wing into the middle at the behest of their coach. CA put pressure on the visitors' central defense with 52 minutes played, but V. Muntada couldn't find an opening. With 61 minutes played, L_P_A put themselves up 1 - 3 after an attack from the right, caused by a defensive blunder. The scorer was V. Bergamaschi. After 75 minutes, CA substituted M. Sánchez Ochoa for E. Barriga, hoping for a quick impact on the field. CA's S. André was shown a yellow card for standing over the ball and blocking an opponent's quick free kick after 75 minutes. After more pushing and shoving than a pack of helicopter moms trying to get the last appointment for their snowflakes to see the Easter Bunny, L_P_A's V. Della Bianca finally got himself booked for a foul. CA set the tempo, maintaining 57 percent of possession.

Most important CA player was D. Abdollahi. Speaking of stinking up the place, E. Barriga sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. L_P_A's best player was W. Bronsart. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because V. Della Bianca seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 1 - 3.
