1647 fans turned up at MOUN Arena, and despite threatening clouds, no rain came. was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Tommi Sulasalmi. After thorough analysis and consultation of astrological charts, Croutelle decided to go with a 3-5-2 formation. They fielded: Spryszyński - Lehota, Živanić, Adamczak - Franceschini, Weijdema, Farris, Vignaux, Baglioni - Angeli, Scruzalmesa.

The head coach flashed hand signals from the sideline and Venise formed up in a 2-5-3 combination. Let's hope the opposing sideline wasn't filming that. Lineup: Venerando - Grafite, Árting - Oberhofer, Peyrot, Kruś, Maczkó, Gousset - Mohd Razin, Dery, Rostan.

Venise decided to play creatively. 27 minutes into the game, Axel Oberhofer almost gave the visitors the lead, as he chipped a delicate lob over the keeper, but the ball glanced harmlessly off the crossbar. With 28 minutes played, Venise's Abdullah Mohd Razin received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. Some quick footwork on the left side of the field 36 minutes into the match left Venise's Maxime Gousset completely free to score. 0 - 1 for the visitors. Venise increased the lead to 0 - 2 as Mozart Grafite scored from the penalty spot, putting the ball in the top left corner. The home club's fans got back into the match when Gianluigi Angeli broke through the visitors' central defense and caught their keeper napping, making it 1 - 2. The home fans looked somber as they watched their team give up another goal, this one coming from their right as Nana Dery put one through the keeper's legs. 1 - 3 after 42 minutes. 1 - 3 was the halftime score. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Venise had 51...51 percent possession. AH AH AH!

Vincent Vignaux brought the corner down with his chest before whipping it to Strahinja Živanić who had the whole net open before him, but his attempt hit the post. Croutelle didn't give an inch and after 68 minutes Strahinja Živanić was able to put the 2 - 3 goal away after a fine individual play on the right. After 77 minutes Croutelle were able to score the equalizing 3 - 3 goal when Gianluigi Angeli picked up a pass coming in from the right and lofted it past the away team's keeper. 85 minutes in Venise probably could have turned their free kick into a shot, but went for a cross instead. Unfortunately, Axel Oberhofer jumped too late and the ball was redirected out for a goal kick. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Croutelle would have 51 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Croutelle's best player was Kie Weijdema. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by Strahinja Živanić today. Most important Venise player was Nana Dery. Good thing Hørdur Árting isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 3 - 3.
