FCBU 0 - 1 Wombats

3641 punters turned up at FCB Arena, and despite threatening clouds on the horizon, no rain came. Berend Leijten was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Oliver Börjesson and Hennes Kampa. They fielded: Vanhamel - Pham, Lee, Rakić, Storari, Blaće - Teucă, Şercăianu, Rapcea, Damşa - Van Tulder.

The following players took the field: Bělohoubek - Budek, Cína, Bezruč - Tyszer, Comish, Bojescu, Gabryš, Elcoro - Halmschlager, Sagaev.

FCBU fielded a 5-4-1 lineup. For Wombat Athletes, the formation of choice was 3-5-2. FCBU used their passable skill at pressing to cut off the attack angles of their opponents all over the field. FCBU pressed their opponents, causing the game to be a bit of a stalemate at times. The pressing tactics used by FCBU were successful as the ball remained close to the half way line at all times. The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Adrien Van Tulder from FCBU a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 19 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! After 19 minutes, Marek Gabryš suffered a slight injury to his left calf muscle. However, it was not enough to stop him from continuing the game. It was 0 - 0 at the break. Wombats enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 66 percent of possession.

After 73 minutes, Wombats put themselves up 0 - 1, as Pablo Elcoro finished off a strike from the left with a real cannonball of a shot. With 76 minutes played, Emil Cína of Wombats fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. Vladislav Budek was, after 77 minutes, almost able to extend the visitors' lead with a well placed diving header after the ball had looped into the centre, but the home side's keeper Peter Vanhamel made the save. At this time in the match, FCBU were using their skill at pressing to successfully stifle the game. Ivo Blaće was unable to continue, following a slight injury to his right knee after 86 minutes. This gave Mugur Costeanu a chance to take to the field instead. Vasil Sagaev could have put his team up another goal 87 minutes into the game, after a rush down the left, but his closing shot hit the post. It was announced by the referee that he estimated stoppage time to be around 1 minute. This meant there could still be an extra attack or two left in the match! The match ends 0 - 1. Possession in this half belonged to Wombats, who controlled the ball 68 percent of the time.

The most dominating FCBU player was without a doubt Adrien Van Tulder. Milenko Rakić was a disappointment, however. Wombats's top performer was clearly Vasil Sagaev. On the other hand, Bohuslav Bezruč's play was disheartening.
