46401 spectators had come to Metaldome this cloudy day. Luigi Arena was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Bence Sziklai. Gentlemen prefer blondes and Picasso1 prefers a 2-5-3. Let's see how this plays out for them. The following players took the field: Merkelbach - Gennari, Bove - Paccagnella, Ubbink, Di Carlofelice, Vidas, Húshovski - Duyzend, de Roo, Launay.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Rulesz decided to go with a 3-4-3 formation. Lineup: Abbas - Hyér, Coelho, Cioc - Hochreutener, Cantón, Bøgeskov, Ciobanu - Savunur, Habar, Petsalnikos.

F. Launay's name was chanted throughout the stadium after his goal in minute 36 following a run up the middle gave Picasso1 the 1 - 0 lead. After 40 minutes, Picasso1's V. Húshovski ran past I. Cantón like he was standing still to put away the 2 - 0 goal. After this, you could see that Picasso1's players were mostly interested in killing time and holding on to their lead. A magnificent combination in the middle resulted in Picasso1's F. Launay bringing the lead up to 3 - 0. F. Launay had a fantastic opportunity to put Picasso1 up another goal 43 minutes into the match, but he fired just over the crossbar. After 44 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by V. Húshovski might have resulted in another goal for Picasso1. However, Q. Abbas made a spectacular save. 3 - 0 was the score after the first half. Picasso1 set the tempo, maintaining 58 percent of possession.

The bench was restless, and with 46 minutes gone Rulesz's coach gave J. Puig the opportunity to try to change the team's fortunes. N. Petsalnikos reluctantly left the field. With 46 minutes played, the Rulesz coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. V. Adam came on and I. Cantón had to leave the fray. Rulesz needed a fresh pair of legs on the field, and after 46 minutes V. Ciobanu made way for C. Desxpro. A. Di Carlofelice seemed to be defying gravity as he elegantly headed in a goal for Picasso1 after a corner kick that was nicely executed by P. Vidas. That makes it 4 - 0. 77 minutes into the match Rulesz's O. Hyér was being cautioned by the referee when he blurted out "I PITY THE FOOL THAT CAUTIONS ME!" The humor was lost on the officials, and his comedic efforts only earned him a straight red card and a trip to the showers. Coming in from the right, M. de Roo almost managed to score another goal for Picasso1, but his header was kept out by the lightning fast reflexes of the visiting keeper. Picasso1 were able to mount several counter-attacks, such as the impressive one 82 minutes in, but P. Vidas lofted a free kick over the crossbar. Picasso1's V. Paccagnella saw his fine effort strike the top of the bar following some good work up the middle by his teammates 83 minutes in. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Picasso1 had 59...59 percent possession. AH AH AH!

T. Duyzend performed admirably for Picasso1. Good thing V. Paccagnella isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The most outstanding Rulesz player was without a doubt A. Savunur. I can't remember C. Desxpro ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 4 - 0.
