1208 spectators had come to le chaudron de Clavette this cloudy day. Willian Stikker was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Carlo Scherr and Alekso Pangov. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! clavette will go to battle in a 3-5-2 formation. Starters: Ketzkarov - Cozma, Serres, Cognet - Landner, Allou, Bérenguer, Gallay, Maris - Clavaud, Monnier.

Our studio analysts were correct. Scorpions has taken the field in a 5-4-1 alignment. They fielded: Camarguinho - Bgazhba, Matassa, Stojecki, Vennola, Thomassen - Berzeviczy, Plaß, Golshan, Bergesen - Gullhult.

A world class level of counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of Scorpions. The bleachers were silenced after 12 minutes when Scorpions's Ingi Thomassen put the guests ahead 0 - 1, following an attack on the right. After 20 minutes, Stéphane Bérenguer got through on the right and was very close to equalizing for the home side, but he didn't get the shot right and it rolled just past the far post. 0 - 1 was the halftime score. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Scorpions had 58...58 percent possession. AH AH AH!

60 minutes into the match, Eckehardt Berzeviczy came through the middle and almost added to his team's lead, but the shot went wide. The away team's Haakon Bergesen took advantage of a mistake on the home side's right after 61 minutes increasing Scorpions's lead to 0 - 2. By now, the players of Scorpions felt that victory was a sure thing and began to play it safe, focusing on defense and not risking too much going forward. Maxime Cognet did everything he could to get one back for the home crowd, but keeper Everaldo Camarguinho denied him with a spectacular save. Scorpions came close to extending their lead as Goderdzi Bgazhba delivered a low effort on goal from the right but the angle was too sharp, and the shot was destined for the side netting. Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 66 minutes on the clock after Leon Plaß's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the Scorpions player a yellow card though. Unfortunately for clavette, Carl Gallay was injured as the game became more physical, and he had to leave the field. Vincent Couvrat replaced him. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Scorpions would have 56 percent possession in this half was spot on!

The most outstanding clavette player was without a doubt Alex Clavaud. I can't remember Jean-Baptiste Maris ever having a worse night than he just had. Scorpions's top performer was clearly Foad Golshan. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because Janusz Stojecki seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 0 - 2.
