trinacria 3 - 1 Real

A scorching day at trinacria Arena, where 538 spectators were in place for today's match. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Gerrit-Jan de Grande and Carlos Rivarola. Gentlemen prefer blondes and trinacria prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. Lineup: Pineschi - van den Horn, Artioli, Vatland - Secci, Norolahti, Mettepenningen, Gius, Ribadulla - Pederboni, Helaers.

Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Real will go to battle in a 4-5-1 formation. The following players had been selected: Răspopa - Foglieni, Mazzucconi, Kukk, Diotto - Misani, Mantela, Valentin, Chaushev, Tiribocchi - Alume.

trinacria were mostly trying to use their outstanding skill at attacking on the flanks. Real saw most attack opportunities on the wings by using their outstanding ability to push the attack in the right direction. 11 minutes into the game, Real seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a passable level of organization. N. Mettepenningen could have put trinacria into the lead with 21 minutes played, but the free kick went just wide. 22 minutes into the game, Real had difficulty finding their positions and their organization dropped to weak. trinacria were very close to putting themselves one up with 25 minutes gone as J. Norolahti got through on the left, but a lapse in concentration sent the ball wide. The 29 minute mark saw the home team take a 1 - 0 lead after a breaking through on the left. The scorer for trinacria was L. Secci. 38 minutes into the match, the visitors' central line of defense had to look on as S. Pederboni ran straight through, knocking one home to make it 2 - 0 for trinacria. Halftime score was 2 - 0. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that trinacria would have 54 percent possession in this half was spot on!

During the break, Real's coach went through the team's tactics yet again, getting them up to solid organization. S. Pederboni had put in a good 60 minutes and left the field with a smile on his face due to his team's lead. A. Echevarrieta was the replacement. The trinacria players could smell victory in the air. F. Gius wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for J. Redzin after 62 minutes. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, Real's C. Misani was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the field after 66 minutes. F. Vetrano was given a chance to change things around. trinacria's Z. Ribadulla wanted to play on, but after 70 minutes the decision was made to give I. Cristian a chance in his place. 70 minutes into the match, the Speedy Gonzalez-like F. Vetrano easily outran M. Artioli to knock in the 2 - 1 goal. With this kind of heat, a slower passing game gives the best results. Unfortunately, this didn't suit I. Cristian at all, as he found he couldn't show off his noted strength and power because of the high temperatures. The home side's G. Helaers came close to extending the lead after 71 minutes. His shot came in from the right but I. Răspopa managed to push it wide with his fingertips. trinacria's N. Mettepenningen saw his fine effort strike the top of the bar following some good work up the middle by his teammates 72 minutes in. G. Helaers gave trinacria supporters even more to cheer about when he increased the lead to 3 - 1 after 75 minutes, following a good exchange of passes on the right that the away team failed to deal with. After this, you could see that trinacria's players were mostly interested in killing time and holding on to their lead. After 80 minutes, Real substituted G. Alume for B. Koelman, hoping for a quick impact on the field. The Real coach was desperate to reverse his team's fortunes in the game, and ordered his team to change their strategy. The forty-five minutes were dominated by trinacria, with an impressive 61 percent possession of the ball.

trinacria's top performer was clearly J. Redzin. Good thing U. Pineschi isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. B. Koelman performed admirably for Real. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by V. Diotto today. The match ends 3 - 1.
