29718 spectators had come to BOĞAZİÇİ STADI this cloudy day. José Marcelo Duvauchelle was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Nicolás Enrique Storani and Beorn Kroeske. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, İSTANBUL decided to go with a 3-4-3 formation. The following players took the field: Girão - Sauval, Labbé, Echavarria - Wechselberger, Tapia, Roslind, Eriksen - Roccato, Caggiano Cruz, Covarrubias.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Football prefers a 5-4-1. Let's see how this plays out for them. Lineup: Marques - Hochmuth, Alegre, Armandi, Sacconi, Chevrollier - Politiko, Andersson, Verze, Del Gaudio - Rajković.

İSTANBUL fans held their breath as M. Caggiano Cruz gallivanted down the left side. He successfully avoided all challenges and fired home the go-ahead goal for 1 - 0! İSTANBUL solidified their lead at the 23 minute mark, as M. Caggiano Cruz snaked the ball through the central line of defense and finished for 2 - 0. 2 - 0 was the score after the first half. İSTANBUL did a good job holding on to the ball, with 56 percent of possession.

After 46 minutes, Football substituted E. Verze for I. Ledermann, hoping for a quick impact on the field. The bench was restless, and with 62 minutes gone Football's coach gave R. Larsson the opportunity to try to change the team's fortunes. V. Politiko reluctantly left the field. A magnificent combination in the middle resulted in İSTANBUL's M. Caggiano Cruz bringing the lead up to 3 - 0. That was his third goal of the match - a hattrick for M. Caggiano Cruz! That's the name of the game! Although the whole team were struggling to impress, Football's S. Rajković was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the field after 75 minutes. D. Diklić was given a chance to change things around. The cannonball from 35 yards by F. Tapia of İSTANBUL was an impressive attempt, but didn't make it into the net. Was that a pass or a bad touch? Either way, the inexperienced P. Chevrollier almost gave İSTANBUL a goal, but luckily they couldn't capitalize on the mistake. Desperate for a goal, Football's D. Diklić saw that the home team's keeper was off his line. Coming in from the right side, his chip successfully reduced the lead to 3 - 1. With 88 minutes played, E. Covarrubias could have brought this one home for İSTANBUL as he charged up on the left, but his hooked ball went just a bit too high. Football almost scored after a counter-attack 89 minutes into the match, but C. Sacconi took a shot from the left that landed harmlessly in the side netting. 89 minutes into the game, Football's attack got through on the right, but I. Ledermann couldn't control the ball and his feeble kick wound up in the keeper's arms. The forty-five minutes were dominated by İSTANBUL, with an impressive 53 percent possession of the ball.

The most outstanding İSTANBUL player was without a doubt F. Tapia. Speaking of stinking up the place, A. Girão sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. Most important Football player was I. Ledermann. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by C. Sacconi today. The match ends 3 - 1.
