15993 fans braved the pouring rain at old trafford. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Juri Moeskops and Almar Hukom. mankunianci decided to use a 5-4-1 set up. The following players had been chosen: Narancio - Hatavets, Glam, van Ostaaijen, Marassi, Hazha - Nalić, Mora, Schmidt, Nicolo' - Lühdorff.

LIVERPOOL tactics involved an interesting 3-4-3 combination. They fielded: Scalmana - Santner, Fredriksson, Courtois - Forssjö, Skorodumov, van der Kuijlen, Gallaga - Boberski, Bari, Flessas.

It was an obvious ambition of LIVERPOOL to use their formidable ability at attacking on the flanks. LIVERPOOL's Vasily Skorodumov managed to lose the defenders as he advanced down the right wing and scored, putting the visitors ahead after 2 minutes. 0 - 1. Alessio Nicolo' really should have scored when he was chosen by fate to confront a wide open goal following a great play by Tuval Glam after a corner. The home crowd cheered when, after 32 minutes, Franciszek Boberski's charge up the middle resulted in the keeper making one of his best saves of the day. With the clock showing 33 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of mankunianci resulted in a counterattack that was smoothly brought under control by Alessio Nicolo' in the centre of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. Attacking on the wings was the choice for LIVERPOOL, and they were successfully passing the ball from the middle to the wings to attack. LIVERPOOL increased their lead after 39 minutes when Johnny Bari broke through on the right, upping the score to 0 - 2, much to the home crowd's dismay. 0 - 2 was the score after the first half. LIVERPOOL enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 54 percent of possession.

The bench was restless, and with 49 minutes passed mankunianci's coach gave Edmílson Portela the opportunity the player had been hoping for. Alessio Nicolo' reluctantly left the field. Vasily Skorodumov increased LIVERPOOL's lead to 0 - 3 with a superb free kick strike that flew in just under the far top corner. After this, you could see that the players of LIVERPOOL were more interested in killing time than scoring more goals. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, mankunianci's Sigifredo Mora was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the pitch after 54 minutes. Joeri van der Luyt was given a chance to change things around. After 63 minutes, mankunianci switched Hagen Lühdorff with Aleksi Kirmanen, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. A penalty kick was awarded to mankunianci 65 minutes into the match, and Jens Christian Schmidt expertly put it away. 1 - 3. When Ignacio Narancio was badly injured by a couple of strong tackles after 66 minutes, mankunianci fans were unhappy to discover that it was not possible to make a substitution. Elvis van Ostaaijen bravely took on the responsibilities of the departed goalkeeper. Christophe Courtois received a delicate pass through the home side's central defence after 77 minutes, and chipped it past the flailing keeper to score making it 1 - 4. The LIVERPOOL fans went wild, whilst the home fans started to think about leaving early. After 84 minutes mankunianci's Aleksi Kirmanen contracted a slight foot injury, but didn't want to leave the game. LIVERPOOL had a good opportunity to attack in the middle, but remembered their instructions to focus on wing attacks instead. After 86 minutes, a mistake by the home side's left defence allowed Vasily Skorodumov to get through. He outclassed the home side's keeper, adding another goal for the visitors. 1 - 5. This third goal completed a hattrick for Vasily Skorodumov. After 88 minutes, LIVERPOOL's Mats-Erik Forssjö burst through the central defence and let loose a cannonball of a shot, scoring for 1 - 6. The home crowd was not impressed when Nikolaos Flessas came in from the right, shooting hard to score after 89 minutes. LIVERPOOL were now up 1 - 7. Possession in this half belonged to LIVERPOOL, who controlled the ball 59 percent of the time.

mankunianci's top performer was clearly Pavel Hazha. Elvis van Ostaaijen turned in a dismal performance, however. The most dominating LIVERPOOL player was without a doubt Johnny Bari. On the other hand, Christophe Courtois's play was disheartening. The match ends 1 - 7.
