Asn 2 - 0 HNKV

The 22704 spectators at Hram Highbury were in for an afternoon of sunshine. Đorđe Marinković was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Raúl Ripoll and Nico Hösel-Wechner. 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. Lineup: Škovrlj - Pavićević, Henriksson, Zhelyazov - Sereći, Trzuskowski, Kamin, Mastrolia - Festenberg, Christakis, Home.

The following players had been chosen: Wasserfahr - Singer, Večković, Cardoso, Tišma, Juršić - Root, Preitner, Haverkamp - Thomas, Mendes.

The teams had chosen different formations for the match. Home team Fc_Arsenal_Šibenik went for 3-4-3 while HNK Vrbovsko has decided to play a 5-3-2 lineup. Asn saw most attack opportunities on the wings, taking advantage of their magnificent level with that tactic. HNKV's Nikša Večković got himself booked for a foul. 15 minutes into the match, a typically brave header by Andreas Festenberg from Jakov Sereći's cross looped just over the opposing goalkeeper's desperate reach. Goal for Asn, making the score 1 - 0. Asn put in a good effort on the right, but Corey Home saw his volley fly wide of the mark 20 minutes into the game. Asn's Luigi Massimo Mastrolia had a good first touch on the flank, but was crowded and, after a change of plan, sent the ball to Lars Kamin who somehow managed to curl the ball wide. It was obvious that Asn had instructions to attack on the wings instead of in the middle. With 28 minutes gone, Kristian Thomas suddenly found himself completely free on the right wing when a counterattack by HNKV caught their opponents by surprise. Only a great save by the opposing keeper prevented him from scoring. An equalising goal seemed certain after 30 minutes when Arnaldo Cardoso attacked down the left wing, but Natko Škovrlj just managed to make a save to keep the ball out of the net. A quick counter attack by Asn forced the opponent's defender to give away a freekick. Velin Zhelyazov was allowed to take it quickly by the referee, much to the dismay of the goalkeeper who wasn't prepared. 2 - 0! It emerged that Evgeniy Root had hurt his left foot after 38 minutes, which led him to abandon the game. Danijel Sladaković had already been warming up, and came on for Evgeniy Root. 42 into the match, HNKV's Kristian Thomas fell flat on his chest. After a breather, he was ready to continue. It was 2 - 0 at the break. Asn had most of the ball, with 56 percent of possession.

Asn's Aristidis Christakis saw his fine effort strike the top of the bar following some good work up the middle by his teammates after 49 minutes. Always a threat, Lars Kamin tore past his marker and placed the ball right at the feet of the waiting Aristidis Christakis who should have easily scored for Asn, but the ball went wide. HNKV's Arnaldo Cardoso was shown a yellow card after 70 minutes for slicing down an opponent. The referee showed Asn's Corey Home the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. The referee announced 3 minutes of stoppage time, giving fans a slim hope that their team could get one more attack in before this was all over. HNKV's Kristian Thomas's long shot really ought to have found the net 90 minutes into the match, but it fell just wide of the target. The match ends 2 - 0. Asn enjoyed most of the ball, as they maintained 59 percent of possession.

Asn's top performer was clearly Aristidis Christakis. Natko Škovrlj was a disappointment, however. HNKV's best player was Nikša Večković. On the other hand, Danijel Sladaković's play was disheartening.
