Overcast weather free of rain made for a turnout of 4836 at QuiCeJoco Arena today. John Allan was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and Linus Oving. The match took place on neutral ground. Cry "havoc" and let loose the dogs of war! Schwäbisch will go to battle in a 2-5-3 formation. The following players had been selected: Kutyło - Biehl, Puebla - Freiler, Bernhart, Veckenstedt, Kancsó, Valmoggia - van der Maar, Eilders, Fibicher.

Gentlemen prefer blondes and Gutierrez prefers a 4-4-2. Let's see how this plays out for them. They fielded: Pengsapha - Andrade, Venâncio, Moskała, Alexander - Volpi, Sander, Mota, Itaipu - Ortiz, Zavaglia.

Gutierrez's game plan was to sit back and absorb the pressure, then use their mythical ability to break on the counter whenever possible. 27 minutes into the game, a swerving free kick by Joakim Fibicher almost resulted in the home team taking the lead, but the shot glanced harmlessly off the frame of the goal. The goal to make it 0 - 1 was scored by Jair Sander with 28 minutes on the clock, following an opportunistic counter-attack down the middle by Gutierrez. With 33 minutes played, Schwäbisch's Casper Biehl received a yellow card for challenging a play with his cleats first. Joakim Fibicher made a superb effort after 35 minutes after a long ball through the middle, but one of the visitors' defenders got a foot in at the last second to preserve the away lead. The referee showed Gutierrez's Carlos Renato 'Careca' Alexander the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. João Andrade of Gutierrez received a yellow card after 40 minutes for unsportsmanlike behavior. Gutierrez's Dejchana Pengsapha had to watch the rest of the game from the sidelines, after twisting his ankle with 41 minutes gone. Paolo Bozzer was the replacement. 0 - 1 was the halftime score. Schwäbisch did a good job holding on to the ball, with 62 percent of possession. We'll be back after these interminable commercial messages.

Timo Eilders's well-known speed was on display as he darted past his defender and sent a beautiful pass through the defender’s legs to Jochem van der Maar who scored the 1 - 1 goal. Schwäbisch created a good opportunity to score 54 minutes into the game when Jochem van der Maar's hooked ball from the left created a scuffle in front of the goal, but the visitors' defenders eventually won out. Schwäbisch broke through on the left after 58 minutes, with Tullio Valmoggia firing at an impossible angle to give the home side a 2 - 1 lead. Big paper red cards were being held up by the opposing supporters with 73 minutes on the clock after Timo Eilders's mistimed tackle from behind. The referee only showed the Schwäbisch player a yellow card though. Content with how the game was proceeding, the Schwäbisch coach let Arne Kirlum come on for Justin Veckenstedt after 75 minutes. Gutierrez almost scored after a swift counter-attack 79 minutes into the game, but Diego Mota put the shot from the left flank just outside the frame. The Count appeared on the jumbotron and announced that Schwäbisch had 63...63 percent possession. AH AH AH!

The most outstanding Schwäbisch player was without a doubt Timo Eilders. I can't remember Casper Biehl ever having a worse night than he just had. Most important Gutierrez player was Michel Zavaglia. Even six year old fans were wincing at the poor play by Evair Volpi today. The match ends 2 - 1.
