The local marching band welcomed a crowd of 2961 to SoccerStars Arena. Jacob Crailsheim was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Tony Gentile and . Gentlemen prefer blondes and SoccerStars prefers a 3-4-3. Let's see how this plays out for them. Lineup: Tonela - Knott, Dournel, Bohnenberger - Dores, Rohrer, Boehm, Torchia - Szproch, Achterhoff, Thuillard.

Our studio analysts were correct. Liekedeeler has taken the field in a 4-4-2 alignment. The following players took the field: Szabó - Tillhorn, Pertav, Fryadi, Weigand - Leier, Eistert, Rammelsberger, Ahrendt - Mândruşcă, Wienrich.

SoccerStars were mostly trying to use their divine skill at attacking on the flanks. Using their supernatural counter-attacking abilities was the strategy of choice for Liekedeeler today. Players in SoccerStars heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their central attacks to the wings instead. Slack defending gave SoccerStars a chance to take the lead with 13 minutes played, but Silvio Knott's cross from the left flank was met gratefully by the opposition who cleared it to safety. 19 minutes into the game, Liekedeeler had difficulty finding their positions and their organization dropped to weak. With the clock showing 32 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of Liekedeeler resulted in a counter-attack that was smoothly brought under control by Fabian Wienrich in the center of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 33 minutes on the clock after Pirmin Bohnenberger's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the SoccerStars player a yellow card though. This was a good period for the visitors, with several opportunities to take the lead, particularly when Cătălin Mândruşcă slipped through the left defense to come up alone against Catarino Tonela, but the home side's keeper showed his lightning-fast reflexes. After 41 minutes of play, Silvio Knott gave the home team a 1 - 0 lead after an attack coming in from the right. Liekedeeler's Jonas 'Blümchen' Leier had to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines, after twisting his ankle with 42 minutes gone. Matthias Zappel was the replacement. SoccerStars's Marek Szproch had an excellent opportunity 43 minutes in, shooting after bringing down a ball from the right, but he missed the goal by miles! Ugo Maria Torchia gave SoccerStars supporters even more to cheer about when he increased the lead to 2 - 0 after 43 minutes, following a good exchange of passes on the right that the away team failed to deal with. 2 - 0 was the score after the first half. SoccerStars set the tempo, maintaining 67 percent of possession.

A review of the gameplan helped Liekedeeler get back to a passable organization to start the second half. It was showtime for artist Fabian Wienrich who demonstrated his technical mastery when he dribbled past Franz Joseph Boehm and finished with a goal for Liekedeeler to bring the scoreline to 2 - 1. Marco António Dores let loose a swerving effort from the right that the visitors' keeper did well to tip wide. The SoccerStars players could smell victory in the air. Silvio Knott wasn't in a hurry to leave the field as he was substituted for Nick Faeh after 75 minutes. 84 minutes into the game, Liekedeeler seemed to suffer a certain amount of confusion and they fell to a inadequate level of organization. SoccerStars were determined to attack down the sideline and their central attempts were constantly abandoned in favor of the wings. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased SoccerStars's lead to 3 - 1 as Franz Joseph Boehm finished it off clinically, firing the shot from a terrible angle. Coming in from the right, Ugo Maria Torchia almost managed to score another goal for SoccerStars, but his header was kept out by the lightning fast reflexes of the visiting keeper. Looks like Nate Silver was right again - his prediction that SoccerStars would have 64 percent possession in this half was spot on!

Most important SoccerStars player was Ugo Maria Torchia. Speaking of stinking up the place, Catarino Tonela sure smelled like the bottom of Batman's shoe after a night of crimefighting in Gotham. Liekedeeler's top performer was clearly Cătălin Mândruşcă. Good thing Kai Weigand isn't a horse, because he'd surely be sent to the glue factory after that performance. The match ends 3 - 1.
