Verlegenheit 0 - 8 Liberty

The crowd of 3144 turning up at Alien Arena today were greeted with some nasty showers of rain. Artour Kasparyan was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Klaas Wedlich and Kevin Mogg. While a boggy pitch like this was an advantage for physical players, it really didn't help those who relied on speed or technique. Lineup: Jahr - Liberzon, Mogge, Kole, Voetsch - Waller, Heng, Nørregaard, Dratzig - Zastrow, Hrvatić.

The following players had been selected: Unger - Bembrive, Klebaniuk, Jeger - Prada, Löwenstein, do Carmo Luiz, Catti, Haklberger - Pellkofen, Kreuzahler.

It was to be a contest between two different football philosophies, since the home team started the game with a 4-4-2 formation while the visitors instead opted for a 3-5-2. After 9 minutes, Liberty's Nico Haklberger made his way through the middle and nonchalantly placed the ball out of the keeper's reach, putting the visitors up 0 - 1. Richard Kreuzahler somehow managed to break free of his man on the left wing and only needed a relatively easy finish to bring Liberty's lead up to 0 - 2. Liberty's Andrea Catti received a ball slotted perfectly through the home side's central defense after 20 minutes, and chipped it past the helpless keeper to increase the lead to 0 - 3. The away fans won't regret traveling for this one! The home crowd was not impressed when Richard Kreuzahler came in from the right, shooting hard to score after 29 minutes. Liberty were now up 0 - 4. 30 minutes into the match, Eliseo Bembrive came through the middle and almost added to his team's lead, but the shot went wide. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 4. Liberty did a good job holding on to the ball, with 90 percent of possession. We'll be back after these interminable commercial messages.

47 minutes into the match, the visitors put themselves ahead 0 - 5 as Eliseo Bembrive finished off an attack from the left with a spectacular bicycle kick. A thrilling play through the middle after 58 minutes gave Liberty's Richard Kreuzahler a chance to increase the lead, and he happily obliged. The score was then 0 - 6. That was his third goal of the match - a hattrick for Richard Kreuzahler! That's the name of the game! After 59 minutes a combination in the middle resulted in a through ball for Gustaw Klebaniuk who increased Liberty's lead to 0 - 7. Beneke Pellkofen increased the visitors' lead by volleying in a pass from the right. 0 - 8. Richard Kreuzahler was, after 75 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 Tim Jahr made the save. The players were tired, but when the referee announced that there would be 3 minutes of added time, they welcomed the extra opportunity to make an impact. The match ends 0 - 8. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Liberty would have 90 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Most important Verlegenheit player was Henri Waller. Speaking of stinking up the place, Kristoffer Nørregaard sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. Liberty's best player was Richard Kreuzahler. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by Gustaw Klebaniuk today.
