MECHA 1 - 0 Soluy

A brilliantly sunny day had enticed a crowd of 16062 to UNDERWORLD. Liviu Stan was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Edi Kuussaari and Otto Handler-Sevelda. It was a sunny day and the technical players could roll the ball around with ease. Those that had to chase after the ball found the weather less appealing, it especially stymied the game of Powerful and Quick players. Starters: Poppel - Velásquez, Pachón, Romaire, Janik, Romano - Candelo, Mendivelso, Vargas - Villarmarzo, Orrego.

Lineup: Małkus - Nettis, Colpa, Fogelquist - Aparicio, Wilches, Giraldo, Ladino, Castillo - Foreth, Otvoş.

America de Cali F.C. started the game in a 5-3-2 formation, whereas Soluy Soccer Club lined up in a 3-5-2 formation. Today, MECHA's strategy involved concentrating on the flanks for their attacks, taking advantage of their divine (+3) level with that tactic. Soluy used their formidable ability to concentrate their attacks in the middle of the pitch, rather than on the wings. Samuel Ladino had a good opportunity to give Soluy the lead as he charged down the right and struck the ball towards the top corner, but the home team's goalkeeper made the save. Soluy's Dragoş Otvoş had seen it all before, so he waited patiently for the right opportunity. He would get no better chance than the one he took, but his shot was deftly blocked by the keeper. Soluy players heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their wing attacks to the middle instead. Karel Foreth came close to putting the visiting team one up 34 minutes into the match, following a solo raid down the middle, but Christoph Poppel managed to tip the ball to a corner. It was obvious that MECHA had instructions to attack on the wings instead of in the middle. MECHA could have put themselves ahead after 36 minutes but Helio Orrego missed a volley shot on a ball coming in from the right. 0 - 0 was the halftime score. Soluy had most of the ball, with 53 percent of possession.

A well placed corner kick from Jonathan Federico Romano was followed by Carlos Eduardo Mendivelso's hard but accurate header. The well executed routine resulted in a goal for MECHA, the score now 1 - 0. It was obvious that team Soluy had instructions to attack in the middle instead of on the wings. A counterattack by MECHA after 61 minutes could have resulted in a goal, but Edinson Villarmarzo, coming in on the left, couldn't get the shot off. The match ends 1 - 0. Possession in this half belonged to Soluy, who controlled the ball 51 percent of the time.

Elkin Vargas performed admirably for MECHA. Helio Orrego was a disappointment, however. Most important Soluy player was Jimmy Giraldo. On the other hand, Dominik Małkus's play was disheartening.
