17976 spectators arrived at Agent-Hohl Stadium, where weather conditions were pretty good for soccer. Yorrick Craanen was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Dragan Drakulić and Pierre Daeze. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Olympique decided to go with a 3-4-3 formation. They fielded: Pascual - Barborinas, Suner, Saidys - Del Zotti, Carpentieri, Uusitalo, Everts - Nesim, Garnier, Dumontier.

Our studio analysts were correct. Köln-Ehrenfeld has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. Lineup: Pintelon - Åhgård, Esebeck, Diez Canseco - Meesschaert, Balling, Maksimovs, Lubig-Schlosser, Canelas - Guénet, Gal.

Olympique clearly preferred using their titanic ability to attack in the middle today. E. Barborinas gave Olympique the 1 - 0 lead, as he successfully challenged the guests' central defenders, then placed the ball at the keeper's right post – what a clinical finish! A foul called during a Olympique counter-attack resulted in a great chance to score, but S. Del Zotti's shot rattled off the post. With 27 minutes played, the visitors almost leveled the score. C. Diez Canseco shot a hard curved free kick, but it struck the post. The visitors got just what they'd been looking for after 32 minutes when S. Maksimovs received a pass from the left and buried it in the bottom corner, leveling it at 1 - 1. Halftime score was 1 - 1. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Köln-Ehrenfeld, with an impressive 63 percent possession of the ball.

After 48 minutes, Olympique sent a free kick in high over the penalty box. In what looked like a well-rehearsed move, the ball was headed backwards and reached G. Nesim, who had plenty of time to shoot and score - 2 - 1. K. Åhgård finished off a quick charge from the left of the field by chipping the ball just over the home side's keeper, making the score 2 - 2 53 minutes into the game. 65 minutes into the game, E. Meesschaert almost gave the visitors the lead, as he chipped a delicate lob over the keeper, but the ball glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. E. Saidys brought the corner down with his chest before whipping it to G. Nesim who had the whole net open before him, but his attempt hit the post. Köln-Ehrenfeld's A. Lubig-Schlosser had to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines, after twisting his ankle with 73 minutes gone. N. Platschka was the replacement. Köln-Ehrenfeld's M. Guénet gave the visitors a 2 - 3 lead after 77 minutes with a superb strike from the right. 78 minutes into the match, R. Esebeck came through the middle and almost added to his team's lead, but the shot went wide. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Köln-Ehrenfeld would have 65 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Olympique's best player was S. Del Zotti. Good thing M. Pascual isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. Köln-Ehrenfeld's top performer was clearly S. Maksimovs. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because C. Diez Canseco seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 2 - 3.
