Chance 4 - 1 RöPS

3116 fans turned up at Chance Arena, and despite threatening clouds, no rain came. Fabio Campomagnani was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Turi Miozzari. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Chance will go to battle in a 3-5-2 formation. The following players took the field: Suárez - Preinitzer, Pilgren, Rinfret - Carrani, Kęski, De Luca, Kampotsis, Goihenetxe - Korsgaard, Bazzanti.

Our studio analysts were correct. RöPS has taken the field in a 5-4-1 alignment. They fielded: Savonsaari - Del Boca, Kjellsson, Sallansalo, Horteu, Dietzen - Ristilä, Isoherranen, Aittamäki, Nivet - Suomi.

4 minutes had elapsed when a great chance for Chance to take the lead after a good ball from the right found B. Kęski alone with the keeper, but he chipped it to the wrong side of the post. The referee signaled a penalty for the home side with 7 minutes gone, amid vocal protests from the visitors. Chance fans erupted in celebration as L. De Luca rifled the go-ahead goal into the top right hand corner. 1 - 0! RöPS almost scored after a swift counter-attack 9 minutes into the game, but J. Nivet put the shot from the left flank just outside the frame. O. Rinfret had a fantastic opportunity to put Chance up another goal 17 minutes into the match, but he fired just over the crossbar. Cheers filled the stadium as U. Goihenetxe broke through the visitors' central defense to put away the 2 - 0 goal for Chance. The teams went for the halftime break at 2 - 0. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Chance had 57...57 percent possession. AH AH AH!

L. De Luca increased Chance's lead to 3 - 0 with a penalty spot cannonball. J. Nivet's well-known speed was on display as he darted past his defender and sent a beautiful pass through the defender’s legs to J. Suomi who scored the 3 - 1 goal. The referee showed RöPS's J. Nivet the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Chance's L. De Luca struck his penalty well enough to beat the goalkeeper and extend the home team's lead to 4 - 1 after 84 minutes. That was his third goal of the match - a hattrick for L. De Luca! That's the name of the game! Chance's players now seemed to think the job was done and acted more defensively, just waiting for the ref to blow the final whistle. Chance set the tempo, maintaining 63 percent of possession.

Chance's best player was L. Bazzanti. Speaking of stinking up the place, P. Pilgren sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. Most important RöPS player was L. Dietzen. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by R. Savonsaari today. The match ends 4 - 1.
