It had rained all day, but 24100 hardy fans still made it out to Tunistan Arena. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by John Bailey and Laurent Roue. The rivalry game had been the talk of Ariana all week and fans of both teams could be seen throughout the stadium. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, klafess decided to go with a 2-5-3 formation. Lineup: Azouz - Guirado, Pattaro - Svetozarov, Cikorski, da Silva, Oostveen, Moumin - Dubousov, Bensaid, Oliveri.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and CABizertinos formed up in a 5-4-1 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. Starters: Simpson - Chaenkov, Rijnsewijn, Kunsztowicz, Kaisenberg, Holling - Soeiro, Phiri, Hagelgård, Camargo - Alipov.

Like the adage "bend but don't break", CABizertinos will rely on their outstanding ability to counter-attack today. G. Alipov came close to putting the visiting team one up 10 minutes into the match, following a solo raid down the middle, but A. Azouz managed to tip the ball over. A. Moumin is such a powerful player - he hardly even noticed the downpour and bravely fought on through the swampy field. klafess had a chance to take the lead after Z. da Silva's dazzling drive up the left, but the opportunity fizzled away as his shot went just over the bar with 18 minutes played. 19 minutes into the game, A. Camargo was a hair's width away from giving CABizertinos the lead with a shot from the left. A timely dive by A. Azouz saved the home team on this occasion. D. Oliveri is making an astonishing dash. The fans are chanting his name. You can hear it reverberate around the stadium. Now a manic sprint up the middle and into the box. Oh! He's thrown open the door! He's thrown open the door, shot the ball through, and slammed the door shut on Mr. Tumnus! klafess has taken the lead 20 minutes into the match, 1 to 0. There'll be no Turkish Delight after the match for the keeper! G. Dubousov, who often relies on his speed, had a rotten day on the drenched field. S. Kaisenberg acted foolishly with 38 minutes played, giving the ball up to klafess's D. Oliveri who had no trouble finding the back of the net. 2 - 0. The home team's lead was reduced to 2 - 1 after CABizertinos's G. Alipov took advantage of a misunderstanding in the center of the defense. G. Dubousov of klafess received a yellow card after 42 minutes for unsportsmanlike behavior. Halftime score was 2 - 1. klafess set the tempo, maintaining 56 percent of possession.

The rain made it hard for players like D. Oliveri to show their technical control of the ball on this soggy day. klafess's A. Bensaid saw his fine effort strike the top of the bar following some good work up the middle by his teammates 66 minutes in. With 67 minutes played, A. Camargo knocked one home from a counter-attack down the right wing, making the score 2 - 2. The 68 minute mark saw the home team take a 3 - 2 lead after a breaking through on the left. The scorer for klafess was A. Bensaid. Content with how the game was proceeding, the klafess coach let A. Kanzari come on for S. Oostveen after 70 minutes. A. Svetozarov had put in a good 75 minutes and left the field with a smile on his face due to his team's lead. L. Żółciak was the replacement. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that klafess would have 55 percent possession in this half was spot on!

klafess's best player was Z. da Silva. I can't remember D. Oliveri ever having a worse night than he just had. G. Alipov performed admirably for CABizertinos. Good thing V. Chaenkov isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 3 - 2.
