albu 1 - 0 Varese

The crowd of 3256 turning up at albu Team Stadion today were greeted with some nasty showers of rain. Aleksander Skjølingstad was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Nicolas Dufour and Isaac Cobo. They fielded: Warén - Puławski, Salínas, Derendarz - Barata, Carlsson, Ulveseter, Brahimi, Mengi - Pásztor, Minea.

Lineup: Kappes - Metsalu, Kallatsa, Scardia, Umiarek, Rousseau - Săvulescu, Kreitzberg, Praskunin, Korppoo, Kapten -.

albu Team fielded a 3-5-2 lineup. For Varese JK, the formation of choice was 5-5-0. albu seemed to prefer attacking in the middle, taking advantage of their magnificent level with that tactic. The muddy pitch made the game a gritty affair, which seemed to suit Cornel Săvulescu just fine. Varese's Jérémie Rousseau got himself booked for a foul. Yüksel Mengi was unable to continue, following a severe injury to his right knee, 36 minutes into the match. The replacement for the injured player was Radosz Zygulski. albu created a good opportunity to score 38 minutes into the match when Lismal Brahimi's hooked ball from the left created a scuffle in front of the goal, and the visitors' defenders had a hard time clearing the ball. albu were determined to attack in the middle, even their wing attacks ended up centrally. Varese almost scored after a counterattack 40 minutes into the match, but Roni Korppoo took a shot from the left that landed harmlessly in the side of the net. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 0. albu claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 68 percent.

Toomas Kapten was uncomfortable with the soggy pitch as he couldn't move the ball around with his usual grace. With 73 minutes played, the home side managed to get a 1 - 0 lead as Radosz Zygulski flipped the ball in after a cross from the right. With 82 minutes played, Zoltán Pásztor of albu fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. albu players heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their wing attacks to the middle instead. After 84 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by Łucjan Derendarz might have resulted in another goal for albu. However, Sandro Kappes made a spectacular save. The referee showed Varese's Cornel Săvulescu the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. The match ends 1 - 0. Possession in this half belonged to albu, who controlled the ball 68 percent of the time.

albu's best player was Zoltán Pásztor. Thomas Ulveseter on the other hand, had a terrible day. Luigi Scardia performed admirably for Varese. Toomas Kapten turned in a dismal performance, however.
