1100 fans turned up at Maracana, and despite threatening clouds, no rain came. Sebastián Tavola was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Steve Cachia. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Cabanna will go to battle in a 3-5-2 formation. Starters: Pettersen - Arnaud, Rønnov, Passet - Perlot, Bourgeois, Nunes Almeida, Granier, Galin - Chassat, Morin.

Our studio analysts were correct. Borussia has taken the field in a 2-5-3 alignment. They fielded: Gualbi - Vicente, Manresa - Öczan, Unkila, Bérard, Pignolet, Huin - Goubard, Joubert, Gauthier.

The referee showed Borussia's Cédric Joubert the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. Jürgen Karwei was called on to replace Borussia's Xesco Manresa after 14 minutes following a nasty collision. The bleachers were silenced after 28 minutes when Borussia's Éric Gauthier put the guests ahead 0 - 1, following an attack on the right. A particularly graphic suggestion to the referee describing what he could do with his turkey giblets led to a straight red card for Pyry Unkila. After 37 minutes a combination in the middle resulted in a through ball for Patrice Huin who increased Borussia's lead to 0 - 2. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 2. Cabanna set the tempo, maintaining 52 percent of possession.

Patrice Huin's well-known speed was on display as he darted past his defender and sent a beautiful pass through the defender’s legs to Éric Gauthier who scored the 0 - 3 goal. At this point, it was obvious that the players of Borussia lowered the tempo and became more defensively oriented. Dinis Nunes Almeida did everything he could to get one back for the home crowd, but keeper Elyes Gualbi denied him with a spectacular save. The forty-five minutes were dominated by Borussia, with an impressive 51 percent possession of the ball.

Cabanna's best player was Stéphane Granier. Speaking of stinking up the place, Nicolas Morin sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. Most important Borussia player was Béranger Bérard. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because Elyes Gualbi seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The match ends 0 - 3.
