Dark skies made the crowd of 1809 at Nou Camp Arena a little nervous, but the rain held off. Jarosław Suszczyk was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Kaarel Luup. The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Csincs formed up in a 4-3-3 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. Lineup: Ognjanović - Judež, Košmerl, Černilogar, Castellsis - Rant, Soler Turmo, Ahac - Pardal, Meeks, Jurič.

Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Katoliki_ will go to battle in a 3-4-3 formation. Starters: Slavec - Cefera, Zaunmüller, Schwarz - Preširen, Kastrin, Trung Tính, Obranič - Gašparič, Štern, Duda.

Csincs mostly ignored the flanks in favor of their formidable ability to attack in the middle. 0 - 1 was the score after 17 minutes, when Katoliki_'s M. Duda cut through the central defense and pounded one in. The game had been going for 20 minutes when Č. Obranič broke through on the right, upping the score to 0 - 2 for Katoliki_, much to the home crowd's dismay. Csincs's M. Ahac set up a perfect opportunity for R. Meeks, but the latter failed to score. V. Gašparič somehow managed to break free of his man on the left wing and only needed a relatively easy finish to bring Katoliki_'s lead up to 0 - 3. The head of R. Meeks connected with a beautiful corner kick after 25 minutes. He wasn't shooting, though, but rather passing to B. Košmerl of Csincs who buried the shot for 1 - 3. Csincs's M. Ahac sent an early cross that saw the defenders caught out of position and the alert A. Jurič was able to pounce and roll the ball past the hapless netminder to make the score 2 - 3. Halftime score was 2 - 3. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Katoliki_ had 59...59 percent possession. AH AH AH!

53 minutes into the game, J. Castellsis came close to leveling the score with a dangerous shot from the center of the area that went just over the bar. Katoliki_ showed their counter-attacking skill 54 minutes into the match by breaking through the middle, with M. Duda scoring an easy goal for 2 - 4. Katoliki_'s players now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle. Maybe it was because of his team's lead, or maybe it was due to the ease with which he broke down the left, but Č. Obranič was a bit too sure of his talents, so instead of taking the easy tap-in goal after 62 minutes, he went for the backheel, which he put woefully wide. Everyone had expected a shot from the free kick 73 minutes into the game, but Katoliki_ sent the ball sideways instead, giving D. Schwarz a clear look at goal with no wall in his way. He sent it through the keeper's legs for 2 - 5! Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 78 minutes on the clock after A. Kastrin's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the Katoliki_ player a yellow card though. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Katoliki_ would have 61 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Most important Csincs player was R. Meeks. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by M. Ognjanović today. Katoliki_'s best player was M. Duda. Good thing L. Trung Tính isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 2 - 5.
