The 870 fans in attendance at Santiago Bernabéu were roasting in the hot sun. Till Julius Wellerswist was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Sebald Winterstetter and Paul Brisson. Our studio analysts were correct. Real_Madrid_CF has taken the field in a 3-5-2 alignment. Lineup: Pruniel - Falih, Brasey, Kahveci - Demirbüken, Sherman, Ćirović, Bekius, Bassani - Neiderhauser, Cackowski.

Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! GERİDÖNDÜ will go to battle in a 3-4-3 formation. They fielded: Define - Gürpınar, Karahan, Kara - Kirmen, Payır, Cevher, Duru - Sırak, Mezid, Oksu.

The game had been going for 12 minutes when C. Bassani came in on the right, feinted, then sped past the off-balance defender to put away the 1 - 0 goal, giving Real_Madrid_CF the lead. The home team thought they were lucky after a brilliant strike from the right bounced off the crossbar 13 minutes in. G. Gürpınar was first to react though, and leveled the game at 1 - 1. The guests took the lead 18 minutes into the match, after a right-side attack resulted in S. Sırak scoring to make it 1 - 2. After more pushing and shoving than a pack of helicopter moms trying to get the last appointment for their snowflakes to see the Easter Bunny, GERİDÖNDÜ's S. Karahan finally got himself booked for a foul. Real_Madrid_CF's P. Kahveci lived up to his reputation for finding unexpected ways to get the ball in the net when he sent a nifty little pass over to M. Cackowski who scored for 2 - 2. The roar of the crowd could only mean one thing - P. Sherman's free kick had found the back of the net and put Real_Madrid_CF ahead 3 to 2! A beautiful, arcing corner kick from P. Sherman found E. Demirbüken at the far post, soaring to meet the ball. The keeper is late and he's headed it in for 4 - 2! A well-placed free kick by GERİDÖNDÜ's E. Duru reduced the lead to 4 - 3. 4 - 3 was the score after the first half. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Real_Madrid_CF would have 54 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Real_Madrid_CF's P. Sherman struck his penalty well enough to beat the goalkeeper and extend the home team's lead to 5 - 3 after 61 minutes. MY GOD, KING! C. Bekius JUST GAVE A DEFENDER AN RKO OUT OF NOWHERE! MY GOD ALMIGHTY HE'S BROKEN IN HALF! Real_Madrid_CF are going to have to play the rest of the game a man down! E. Kirmen was the unlucky victim and couldn't continue the game, so GERİDÖNDÜ's A. Kocademir had to come off the bench. E. Duru saw that the keeper was out and shot from an incredible distance 85 minutes in. Unfortunately for GERİDÖNDÜ, the ball skimmed the crossbar and went over. The home team's fans were upset when, after 86 minutes, the visiting S. Payır broke through the central defense and got the ball past the keeper. 5 - 4 was the score. The referee showed GERİDÖNDÜ's G. Gürpınar the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. S. Payır found it hard to catch his breath today in the stifling heat. Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 89 minutes on the clock after S. Sırak's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the GERİDÖNDÜ player a yellow card though. Real_Madrid_CF were forced into a substitution as N. Pruniel couldn't continue playing due to some rough treatment, so C. Burgstaller-Bodingba had to come in from the bench. Several players seemed a little dazed by the warm weather, and were repeatedly tricked by the clever and agile S. Sırak. GERİDÖNDÜ did a good job holding on to the ball, with 53 percent of possession.

Most important Real_Madrid_CF player was T. Neiderhauser. Good thing C. Burgstaller-Bodingba isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The most outstanding GERİDÖNDÜ player was without a doubt S. Sırak. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because U. Kara seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 5 - 4.
