The 33600 spectators at Lagunen were in for an afternoon of sunshine. Kasper Köcher was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Johan Falkenland and Sigurd Ødegård. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Vithajarna will go to battle in a 4-5-1 formation. Starters: Göransson - Wasira, Nəsirzadə, Pontes, Danielsson - Stensson, Laitinen, Kud, Karny, Bonna - Hörmo.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Taikon formed up in a 3-5-2 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. The following players had been selected: Heed - Knaus, Dahlling, Oskarsson - Hansson, Bergsten, Nordsten, Hörnmar, Larsson - Åkerström, Skoging.

Maybe G. Kud should join the aquatics team instead. He went down dramatically after 15 minutes, crying out with agony as he fell. The referee was not impressed, though, and showed him a yellow for diving. Vithajarna's C. Pontes was shown a yellow card after 17 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Unfortunately for Taikon, M. Hansson was injured as the game became more physical, and he had to leave the field. C. Möllerquist replaced him. S. Karny caught everyone by surprise with a unexpected backheel after 24 minutes. P. Bonna was perfectly placed to take advantage of the play, but unfortunately, he was as surprised as anyone and couldn't finish for Vithajarna. 30 minutes into the game, C. Pontes had to leave the field due to a knee injury. In came J. Rupniewski. After several obvious shirt pulling incidents, Taikon's A. Bergsten got himself booked. Halftime score was 0 - 0. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Vithajarna would have 52 percent possession in this half was spot on!

With the clock showing 70 minutes, the fourth official held up the substitution board. L. Hörmo looked to see that it was his number in red, so he made his way over to the sideline and swapped out for A. Carldahl, though he would have liked to continue. 75 minutes in, the referee awarded Vithajarna a penalty. G. Kud coolly slotted it home for a 1 - 0 lead. After 78 minutes, Vithajarna sent a free kick in high over the penalty box. In what looked like a well-rehearsed move, the ball was headed backwards and reached Z. Nəsirzadə, who had plenty of time to shoot and score - 2 - 0. By now, the players of Vithajarna felt that victory was a sure thing and began to play it safe, focusing on defense and not risking too much going forward. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Vithajarna, with an impressive 53 percent possession of the ball.

Vithajarna's best player was S. Karny. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because J. Rupniewski seemed to stumble all over the pitch. Most important Taikon player was U. Skoging. I can't remember F. Larsson ever having a worse night than he just had. The match ends 2 - 0.
