1285 fans turned up at Gárdonyi Park, and despite threatening clouds, no rain came. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Adalwolf Falkenflucht and David Aillaud. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Csillagok will go to battle in a 3-4-3 formation. The following players had been selected: Higuera - Racevičius, Sarabinejad, Micović - Kendra, Szilágyi, Goron, Wittich - Barta, Silva Farinha, Turpin.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and piccoló prefers a 3-5-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. The following players took the field: Petrisov - Alfredini, Erarrizaga, Ginóbili - Kubat, Matics, Venyige, Tondeleir, Kasper - Bengyik, Vrijens.

Csillagok mostly ignored the flanks in favor of their world class ability to attack in the middle. The referee signaled a penalty for the home side with 10 minutes gone, amid vocal protests from the visitors. Csillagok fans erupted in celebration as Deimantas Racevičius rifled the go-ahead goal into the top right hand corner. 1 - 0! Coming through the middle Kornél Matics almost scored the equalizer for piccoló after 13 minutes, but Víctor Higuera made an excellent save, tipping the awkward swerving shot past the post. 15 minutes into the match, the visitors' central line of defense had to look on as Virgile Turpin ran straight through, knocking one home to make it 2 - 0 for Csillagok. After 20 minutes, piccoló were awarded a free kick. Rather than shooting straight at goal, the kicker went for an indirect variant which seemed to take his teammates a bit by surprise. Gyula Kasper did manage a finish, but from an awkward position, sending the ball out of bounds. Csillagok was given a free kick 21 minutes into the match after the defenders stopped the counter-attack. Interestingly, the free kick was directed at the area just in front of the keeper instead of at the goal mouth. The attackers were relentless, and after a short struggle with his marker, Zoltán Barta could finally lay the ball to rest behind the keeper. That goal made the score 3 - 0. piccoló were given a lifeline when the referee pointed to the spot 27 minutes into the game. Sigismundo Erarrizaga struck the penalty well, making it 3 - 1. With clinical precision, the cross from winger Gyula Kasper found its way to Quirijn Vrijens's head, and a screaming header gave piccoló a goal after 28 minutes played. The scoreboard read 3 - 2. The teams went for the halftime break at 3 - 2. The forty-five minutes were dominated by piccoló, with an impressive 59 percent possession of the ball.

The Csillagok coach was happy with the scoreline, but still wanted to change the lineup. After 46 minutes, Eugen Vlad came on for Kund Kendra. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, piccoló's Gyula Kasper was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the field after 47 minutes. Lu Bong-Hee was given a chance to change things around. A goal seemed certain after 52 minutes when Kamil Kubat came down the left wing, but Víctor Higuera just managed to make a save and preserve the home team's lead. The bench was restless, and with 55 minutes gone piccoló's coach gave Alexandre Kieffer the opportunity to try to change the team's fortunes. Ábel Bengyik reluctantly left the field. After 77 minutes, the visitors evened the score after Kornél Matics made it through the middle and struck home making it 3 - 3. Oh dear - the keeper's made a mess of that one. The crowd was very disappointed after he let Lu Bong-Hee get the go-ahead goal with a speculative shot from the right after 79 minutes. 3 - 4. The referee showed piccoló's Quirijn Vrijens the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Quirijn Vrijens will have Excedrin Headache number 5 after heading home the hard corner kick from Sigismundo Erarrizaga after 81 minutes of play. I'm sure that making the score 3 - 5 will assuage him a bit, though. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that piccoló had 57...57 percent possession. AH AH AH!

Most important Csillagok player was Ádám Szilágyi. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by Erfan Sarabinejad today. piccoló's top performer was clearly Quirijn Vrijens. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because Lu Bong-Hee seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 3 - 5.
