FCVS 1 - 4 VFFC

Overcast weather free of rain made for a turnout of 40855 at Café Central today. Giovanni Maria Sanfelici was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Massimiliano Matarasso and Zsolt Vörös. The following players took the field: Jorge - Pereira Sá, Cação, Pinto - Vilhena, Paião, Albuquerque, de Oliveira, Pinto - Garrocho, Oliveira.

Lineup: Mendes Pinto - Pereira, Godelaine, Hestehauge - Mota Alves, de Almeida, Bösl, Imperiale, de Carvalho - Gnudi, Karafotias.

As the teams spread out over the pitch, it became clear that they would both be using a 3-5-2 formation today. Like the adage "bend but don't break", FCVS will rely on their inadequate ability to counter-attack today. The visiting Spiros Karafotias was booed thoroughly by the home crowd 10 minutes into the game, after he broke through the middle and scored, resulting in the visitors taking the lead. 0 - 1 was the score. Augusto Lourenço Jorge got a fingertip on Donato Gnudi's shot from the left 11 minutes in, and managed to keep the visitors from going up another goal. Fernando de Oliveira tipped the corner kick right to the keeper, who mishandled it, giving FCVS's Joaquim Agostinho Garrocho a chance to knock it in for 1 - 1. After 25 minutes, VFFC put themselves up 1 - 2, as Renato de Almeida finished off a play from the left with a real rocket. 1 - 2 was the score after the first half. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that VFFC would have 70 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Johann Bösl was, after 54 minutes, almost able to extend the visitors' lead with a well placed diving header after the ball had looped into the center, but the home side's keeper Augusto Lourenço Jorge made the save. VFFC's António Miguel de Carvalho was shown a yellow card after 55 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, FCVS's Mário Paião was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the field after 60 minutes. Óscar Felgueiras was given a chance to change things around. The bench was restless, and with 60 minutes gone FCVS's coach gave Artur Mendes the opportunity to try to change the team's fortunes. António Vitorino Oliveira reluctantly left the field. The VFFC coach was happy with the scoreline, but still wanted to change the lineup. After 65 minutes, Jannes Golin-Greiner came on for Renato de Almeida. Some fine one-twos on the left led to a VFFC goal with 67 minutes gone, making it 1 - 3. Spiros Karafotias was noted down as the scorer. A defender managed to keep the ball from crossing the goal-line after a curling shot from the right by Johann Bösl beat the keeper with 68 minutes played, preventing VFFC from going up another goal. 71 minutes into the game, VFFC worked the left side industriously creating several opportunities to add to their lead, but just couldn't apply the finishing touch. Content with how the game was proceeding, the VFFC coach let Denis Tovt come on for Johann Bösl after 73 minutes. The VFFC players could smell victory in the air. Spiros Karafotias wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for Rafał Kotowicz after 78 minutes. While defending the VFFC lead, Rafał Kotowicz got a new role. 88 minutes in the game, his coach ordered him to change places with António Miguel de Carvalho. Ahead in the game after 89 minutes, VFFC made some tactical adjustments. Nuno Fernando Mota Alves and Nicola Imperiale swapped positions. The referee decided to let play continue for an additional 1 beyond the regular 90 minutes. Given a free kick from a ways out after 89 minutes, VFFC sent an arching ball into the penalty box. It was headed clear, but Donato Gnudi was waiting just outside the area and fired it home to make it 1 - 4. The match ends 1 - 4. The forty-five minutes were dominated by VFFC, with an impressive 70 percent possession of the ball.

FCVS's best player was Joaquim Agostinho Garrocho. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because Nobre Augusto Cação seemed to stumble all over the pitch. The most outstanding VFFC player was without a doubt Denis Tovt. Speaking of stinking up the place, Nuno Mendes Pinto sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham.
