Clouds darkened the skies at La terraza de MOE as 25523 spectators turned up for the match. Amadeo Carrillo was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Eustachio Filipovic Ricci and Maxime Braillon. Our studio analysts were correct. borbotones has taken the field in a 3-4-3 alignment. The following players had been selected: Iuşan - Lambau, Fiorotto, Draghetti - Williams, Pifferi, Grafl, Grashoff - Rubio de Barrio, Cornejo, Fritzler.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and DMMC prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. Starters: Wedekind - Wannez, Liepert, Tolan - Kościelna, Beketov, Sánchez, Saravalakos, Plėšanovas - Stuñiga, Witthöft.

Using their formidable skill, borbotones pushed their attacks towards the wings. DMMC mostly ignored the flanks in favor of their extra-terrestrial ability to attack in the middle. After 3 minutes, DMMC's S. Tolan made his way through the middle and nonchalantly placed the ball out of the keeper's reach, putting the visitors up 0 - 1. L. Pfeffermann was called on to replace borbotones's T. Grashoff after 19 minutes following a nasty collision. DMMC were determined to attack in the middle, even their wing attacks ended up coming through the center. The ball was in the back of the home team's net yet again after 22 minutes, but this time the referee called the goal back because A. Kościelna had knocked a member of the opposing team to the ground while the play occurred down the middle of the field. A. Rubio de Barrio was just a finger's width away from an equalizer for borbotones with a strike from the left, but F. Wedekind managed to deflect the shot out for a corner. The visitors' F. Stuñiga took advantage of a mix-up between the home side's goalie and center backs 26 minutes into the match. 0 - 2 for DMMC. Some fine one-twos on the left led to a DMMC goal with 27 minutes gone, making it 0 - 3. A. Beketov was noted down as the scorer. The referee signaled a penalty 30 minutes into the game following a foul that was right on the line. J. Sánchez knocked it home to make the score 0 - 4. DMMC's players now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle. DMMC's O. Liepert received a ball slotted perfectly through the home side's central defense after 31 minutes, and chipped it past the helpless keeper to increase the lead to 0 - 5. The away fans won't regret traveling for this one! 0 - 5 was the halftime score. DMMC set the tempo, maintaining 73 percent of possession.

A thrilling play through the middle after 55 minutes gave DMMC's J. Wannez a chance to increase the lead, and he happily obliged. The score was then 0 - 6. DMMC players heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their wing attacks to the middle instead. After 61 minutes, DMMC's A. Kościelna burst through the central defense and let loose a cannonball of a shot, scoring for 0 - 7. It was obvious that DMMC had instructions to attack in the middle when they directed a break on the wing into the center of the park. His teammates looked on in disbelief as S. Lambau thoughtlessly misplayed the ball, setting up DMMC's A. Plėšanovas for an easy goal. 0 - 8. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that DMMC would have 74 percent possession in this half was spot on!

borbotones's top performer was clearly F. Cornejo. I can't remember L. Pfeffermann ever having a worse night than he just had. F. Stuñiga performed admirably for DMMC. Good thing S. Tolan isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 0 - 8.
