Family 0 - 5 Zhunder

The weather was pretty good, and a crowd of 39297 had shown up at Leire estadio for the match. Antonio Guzmán Cano was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Maximilian Sprendlingen and Kevin Amport. The following players had been selected: Santolo la Cruz - Korán, Agosti, Déchaux - Torkhov, Gamboa, Corts, Lysne, Yañez - Fenčík, Raimundez.

The following players took the field: Kulejewski - Nocuń, Tillner, Dedaj - Cucoş, Rojo, 冠玉 (Guanyu), Garbiec, Gállego - Jochem, Karpel.

As the teams spread out over the pitch, it became clear that they would both be using a 3-5-2 formation today. After 3 minutes, Zhunder's José Gállego made his way through the middle and nonchalantly placed the ball out of the keeper's reach, putting the visitors up 0 - 1. Family's Jean-Max Déchaux was shown a yellow card after 4 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Marcin Nocuń had been tasked with man marking Èric Corts. He did this well, but often fell out of position doing so, forcing his team mates to cover for him. After 15 minutes, a mistake by the home side's left defense allowed Thoma Dedaj to get through. He outclassed the home side's keeper, adding another goal for the visitors. 0 - 2. Thoma Dedaj somehow managed to break free of his man on the left wing and only needed a relatively easy finish to bring Zhunder's lead up to 0 - 3. Family had a brilliant opportunity to reply as Miloš Fenčík received a high ball from the right and hit it on the bounce. Bonifacy Kulejewski's reflexes induced groans from the home crowd, though. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 3. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Zhunder had 61...61 percent possession. AH AH AH!

Yossef Karpel had put in a good 46 minutes and left the field with a smile on his face due to his team's lead. Gianni Antolli was the replacement. Fernandão Jochem came close to extending the visitors' lead when he found himself completely unmarked in front of the goal after a pass through the middle, but his attempted chip over Javier Santolo la Cruz just kept rising and landed in the relieved crowd. With 51 minutes played, Zhunder put themselves up 0 - 4 after an attack from the right, caused by a defensive blunder. The scorer was Liviu Cucoş. Maybe it was because of his team's lead, or maybe it was due to the ease with which he broke down the left, but 杜 (Du) 冠玉 (Guanyu) was a bit too sure of his talents, so instead of taking the easy tap-in goal after 72 minutes, he went for the backheel, which he put woefully wide. The bicycle kick from 杜 (Du) 冠玉 (Guanyu) would have been the Goal of the Year for Zhunder, had it not hit the post. With 77 minutes played, Zhunder's Marcin Nocuń received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. Although the whole team were struggling to impress, Family's Hugo Raimundez was singled out as being the problem as he was called off the field after 80 minutes. Andres Tarien was given a chance to change things around. 81 minutes into the match, Leon Garbiec came through the middle and almost added to his team's lead, but the shot went wide. The Zhunder coach was happy with the scoreline, but still wanted to change the lineup. After 89 minutes, Paco Ferra de la Mola came on for Fernandão Jochem. Content with how the game was proceeding, the Zhunder coach let Jorge Cimbor come on for José Gállego after 89 minutes. 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! The home team's task just got even harder after 杜 (Du) 冠玉 (Guanyu) buried the penalty kick. Zhunder lead 0 - 5 after 89 minutes. The match ends 0 - 5. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that Zhunder would have 61 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Family's top performer was clearly Miloš Fenčík. Speaking of stinking up the place, Tomas Lysne sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. The most outstanding Zhunder player was without a doubt Santiago Rojo. You can tell it was nickel beer night yesterday at the local bar because Marcin Nocuń seemed to stumble all over the pitch.
