levski 0 - 4 Andres

A brilliantly sunny day had enticed a crowd of 2193 to Levski Sofia. Nadav Shapira was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Agostino Bonasio and Antoñito Cataldo. levski started off with a 4-4-2 lineup. They fielded: Albino - Donina, Tapin, Trường, Simmons - Jouanin, Minton, Parent, Spear - Yanez, Quinn.

Andres had chosen a strategic 4-5-1 formation. Lineup: Rufino - Batalla, Nogier, Kövesi, Pietronero - Solís, Sammalinen, Gago, Mendonça Pina, Zecchin - Künster.

levski were mostly trying to use their brilliant skill at attacking on the flanks. Pressing was the tactic of the day for Andres, taking advantage of their passable level with that tactic. Andres's Jérémy Nogier managed to lose the defenders as he advanced down the right wing and scored, putting the visitors ahead after 11 minutes. 0 - 1. Andres's Petri Sammalinen left the field after 25 minutes because of a nasty blow to the shin. His replacement was Ove Cederholt. 29 minutes into the game a free kick by Walter Hugo Mendonça Pina found its way through the home side's poorly assembled defensive formation, making Andres's lead 0 - 2. At this time in the match, Andres were using their skill at pressing to successfully stifle the game. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 2. Andres had most of the ball, with 62 percent of possession.

As usual, Kirby Simmons tried to use his strength and hard work for the benefit of the team, but the heat hit him hard and he couldn't keep pace at all. After 61 minutes, a mistake by the home side's left defence allowed Gerónimo Gago to get through. He outclassed the home side's keeper, adding another goal for the visitors. 0 - 3. 62 minutes into the game, Andrea Zecchin had to leave the pitch due to a knee injury. In came Nestoras Zervidis. The referee showed Andres's Vincenzo Pietronero the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. The visitors' Ingo Künster took advantage of a misunderstanding between the home side's goalie and centre backs 71 minutes into the match. 0 - 4 for Andres. After this, you could see that the players of Andres were more interested in killing time than scoring more goals. Victorio Tapin of levski was booked for kicking the ball away after the whistle. Several players seemed a little dazed by the warm weather, and were repeatedly tricked by the clever and agile Trịnh Trường. The pressing tactics used by Andres were successful as the ball remained close to the half way line at all times. There was concern in the stands when, at the 83 minute mark, levski's Frederick Spear hit the ground hard, but he refused the attention of the trainer and rejoined his teammates on the pitch. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by Andres, with 65 percent of the ball.

levski's best player was Quentin Jouanin. On the other hand, Kirby Simmons's play was disheartening. Most important Andres player was Ingo Künster. László Kövesi on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 0 - 4.
