The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 215 had shown up at Stader camp for the match. Arvi Lipsanen was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Bálint Mányoki and Gilberto Brenha. Our studio analysts were correct. Napoletans has taken the field in a 2-5-3 alignment. Lineup: Tusień - Janasik, Marquetti - Mourato, Carmenati, Al-Hasan, Liit, Di Grazia - De Masi, Perry, Emmanuel.

After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Marlyn decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. Starters: Banzato - Frezzolino, Chiu, Maiorano - Öhborg, Fidalgo, Monroy, Cortonesi, Tapuchi - Kron, Cento.

Marlyn went for a narrow approach, using their magnificent ability to focus their attacks down the middle. B. Emmanuel's name was chanted throughout the stadium after his goal in minute 3 following a run up the middle gave Napoletans the 1 - 0 lead. Marlyn leveled the score after 16 minutes to make it 1 - 1, as J. Kron struck home after a fine midfield combination through the middle left him completely unmarked. Making his way up the middle after 27 minutes, S. De Masi almost managed to sneak a goal past the visitors' keeper, but B. Banzato was ready and blocked it to keep the score level. Some great play up the middle by Napoletans led to a chance for B. Emmanuel to get the go-ahead goal with 28 minutes played, but the shot hit the crossbar. Halftime score was 1 - 1. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Napoletans, with an impressive 55 percent possession of the ball.

After a fine move down the middle G. Di Grazia nearly put the home side one up with 65 minutes played. His final touch escaped him though and the keeper smothered the ball. Napoletans's G. Di Grazia tried to break through the middle repeatedly, but the visitors' defenders were just too alert. The home side put themselves ahead 2 - 1 after 73 minutes of hard work with a breakthrough from D. Marquetti, who, all by his lonesome, came out of the right wing and hooked the ball over the visitors' keeper. The home side's H. Mourato twisted a free kick home with 74 minutes played, putting Napoletans ahead 3 - 1. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Napoletans had 54...54 percent possession. AH AH AH!

The most outstanding Napoletans player was without a doubt S. Al-Hasan. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because M. Tusień seemed to stumble all over the pitch. Most important Marlyn player was J. Kron. Speaking of stinking up the place, L. Cento sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The match ends 3 - 1.
