The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 47594 had shown up at Fortschritt München Arena for the match. Bård Lillevold was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Fortschritt formed up in a 3-5-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. Starters: Vehab - Alves Lima, Padovani, Klusáček - Decrauzat, Ancelot, Soheili, Cuvelier, Brodersen - Fjeler, Correia.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Juventus prefers a 4-5-1. Let's see how this plays out for them. They fielded: Houze - Agüera, Bosquet, Zeddelmann, Johansson - Glavić, Blardone, Orner, Schur, Xarpell - Celín.

Fortschritt were mostly trying to use their magical skill at attacking on the flanks. Like the adage "bend but don't break", Juventus will rely on their world class ability to counter-attack today. Was it the hair gel? Was it a gift from the gods? Either way, the faithful won't care. Soaring like a Saturn V, F. Cuvelier somehow got his head on a L. Padovani moonshot from the corner and buried it in the back of the net. What grace! What power! Plant the flag for Fortschritt, Neil Armstrong! The score is now 1 - 0. Fortschritt's E. Alves Lima swung in a good chance from the left, but the visitors' defense were able to clear the ball. L. Padovani almost put Fortschritt ahead another goal when he curled a free kick over the defensive wall and almost into the net, but the visitors' keeper got there just in time to knock it wide. E. Alves Lima let loose a swerving effort from the right that the visitors' keeper did well to tip wide. M. Celín was in the clear after breaking through the offside trap following a Juventus counter-attack from the left with 30 minutes played. His neat finish made the score 1 - 1. The guests almost went up by a goal with 38 minutes elapsed when S. Blardone came through from the right. The shot bounced harmlessly off the post, though. Juventus had a great opportunity to score following a counter-attack after 42 minutes, but M. Celín's shot from the left sailed high over the bar. Fortschritt had a good opportunity to attack in the middle, but remembered their instructions to go down the wing instead. 43 minutes had elapsed when a great chance for Fortschritt to take the lead after a good ball from the right found E. Alves Lima alone with the keeper, but he chipped it to the wrong side of the post. With 44 minutes played, Fortschritt's E. Alves Lima received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. The teams went for the halftime break at 1 - 1. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Fortschritt had 60...60 percent possession. AH AH AH!

M. Fjeler's speed is always a threat when he gets a little room to move, and this time was no different as he broke free of his man to send an on-target through ball to I. Correia who knocked it in for Fortschritt. 2 - 1! The home team will be cursing A. Glavić for weeks; he finished off a great pass from the left, knocking it past the keeper without a problem 49 minutes in. It's anyone's game now! 2 - 2. Fortschritt created a good opportunity to score 50 minutes into the game when F. Ancelot's hooked ball from the left created a scuffle in front of the goal, but the visitors' defenders eventually won out. Fortschritt had a chance to take the lead after L. Padovani's dazzling drive up the left, but the opportunity fizzled away as his shot went just over the bar with 73 minutes played. Z. Vehab looked great 75 minutes in after stopping a shot by the visitors' I. Agüera. 80 minutes into the match, the referee signaled for a Juventus substitution. J. Fig Nielsen came on for M. Celín. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Fortschritt, with an impressive 61 percent possession of the ball.

Fortschritt's best player was G. Brodersen. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because L. Padovani seemed to stumble all over the pitch. Most important Juventus player was S. Blardone. Good thing A. Glavić isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 2 - 2.
