Overcast weather free of rain made for a turnout of 45143 at Ilmu Hitam today. Magnus Aune was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Lance Boone and . Our studio analysts were correct. markvmasters has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. Lineup: Ligtermoet - Baldacci, Devillers, Iódice - Mondino, Doucoure, Foi, Aksal, Vojnić - Ward, Enguix.

Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Sachertorte will go to battle in a 4-5-1 formation. They fielded: 't Hart - Pizzolato, Harteveld, Hoeneveld, Lausberg - Govaert, Riezebos, van der Paar, Dhondt, Ryšavý - Ardata.

It was an obvious ambition of markvmasters to play a wide game with their world class ability to attack down the wings. Like a mighty wizard in the hellish lair of the balrog, Sachertorte is aiming to smother the Hephaestian flames of attack with excellent skill. Trespass is forbidden! Alas, Balrog, you shall not pass! Sachertorte's ability to press all over the field paid off frequently. Some things can only be learned through experience, and U. Aksal should take his lesson to heart after nearly gifting Sachertorte a goal after 7 minutes. After more pushing and shoving than a pack of helicopter moms trying to get the last appointment for their snowflakes to see the Easter Bunny, markvmasters's M. Devillers finally got himself booked for a foul. In a fantastic display of determination, Sachertorte's R. 't Hart forced himself to his feet, after an opponent viciously knocked him down. G. Foi will have Excedrin Headache number 5 after heading home the hard corner kick from M. Devillers after 27 minutes of play. I'm sure that making the score 1 - 0 will assuage him a bit, though. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Sachertorte's G. Harteveld got himself booked. A. Sousanis was called on to replace markvmasters's J. Enguix after 30 minutes following a nasty collision. 1 - 0 was the halftime score. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that markvmasters had 51...51 percent possession. AH AH AH!

Sachertorte's I. Lausberg was shown a yellow card after 67 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Sachertorte pressed their opponents, causing the game to be a bit of a deadlock at times. Attacking on the wings was the theme of the day for markvmasters, and they were successfully passing the ball outside from the middle. 81 minutes into the game, markvmasters's A. Ward tried to nail the coffin shut, but his shot from the left glanced off the top of the bar to fall behind the net. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that markvmasters would have 54 percent possession in this half was spot on!

markvmasters's best player was P. Vojnić. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because A. Sousanis seemed to stumble all over the pitch. G. Dhondt performed admirably for Sachertorte. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by R. 't Hart today. The match ends 1 - 0.
