Gusto 1 - 3 Malta

646 spectators arrived at Nicolas Vijod. "La Fortaleza del León", where weather conditions were pretty good for soccer. Joel Bungener was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Emile Aben and Gennaro Refalo. The match took place on neutral ground. The following players had been selected: Bulzomi - Mulenkov, Fernández, Area - Villagrán, de Paz, Gay, Moro, Delaporte - Jauch, Zanders.

They fielded: Ludueña - Caldentey, Carbonel, Agüero, Levi - Pignata, De la Puente, Mekahel, Tejeda - Abate, Annand.

The teams had chosen different formations for the match. The home team, Buen Gusto S. de F., went for a 3-5-2, while Malta VS has decided to play a 4-4-2 lineup. Using their brilliant skill, Gusto pushed their attacks towards the wings. Malta has displayed inadequate talent to press and shut down attacks all over the field. A mistake by the home side's central defense after 14 minutes allowed Jeremías Abate to score for Malta. The visitors have the lead, 0 - 1. Gusto made it 1 - 1 as Jonny Gay knocked the corner kick to Daniel Armando Delaporte who whipped a low drive in off the far post. Gotta love friendly woodwork! Malta pressed their opponents, causing the game to be a bit of a deadlock at times. Gusto had a good opportunity to attack in the middle, but remembered their instructions to go down the wing instead. Julián Carbonel of Malta received a yellow card after 24 minutes for unsportsmanlike behavior. Oh dear - the keeper's made a mess of that one. The crowd was very disappointed after he let Darío Andrés Levi get the go-ahead goal with a speculative shot from the right after 25 minutes. 1 - 2. Santiago Ignacio Pignata of Malta finished off the counter-attack from the left rather easily, making it 1 - 3. It was 1 - 3 at the break. Malta set the tempo, maintaining 54 percent of possession.

The pressing tactics used by Malta were successful as the ball didn't make it out of the middle third very much. Stefano Area almost lowered the gap having danced through the entire left side of the defense, but the shot went straight into the arms of the goalkeeper. Gusto were determined to attack down the sideline and their central attempts were constantly abandoned in favor of the wings. It was announced by the fourth official that he estimated stoppage time to be around 1 minutes. This meant there could still be an extra attack or two left in the match! After 89 minutes, Stefano Area of Gusto had a good opportunity to reduce the away team's lead with a chance created through the middle, but he scuffed the ball harmlessly past the post. The match ends 1 - 3. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Malta had 54...54 percent possession. AH AH AH!

The most outstanding Gusto player was without a doubt Alfred Jauch. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by Oscar Andrés Villagrán today. Malta's best player was Jeremías Abate. I can't remember Humberto Rafael Ludueña ever having a worse night than he just had.
