Grilled 0 - 8 kralj
33 spectators had come to The Cooking Pot this cloudy day. Marco Gurrea
was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Karl Tradt
and Pablo Melgert
. Grilled had chosen a strategic 2-5-3 formation. Lineup: Seng - bin Ahmad, Bakhtiar - Shaahee, bin Mohd Kassim, 福泉 (Fuquan) , Ying Lee, 勇航 (Yonghang) - Bellamoli, Kong, Wan Kang.
kralj tactics involved an interesting 2-5-3 combination. They fielded: Kuruzović - García Castris, Duarte - Bello, Altomonte, Capitani, Behnane, Domazet - Gačanović, Zrnić, Koka.
The opposing supporters gave the referee an earful when he only gave Chow Ying Lee
from Grilled a yellow card after a mistimed challenge from behind 2 minutes into the game. That was far too lenient! After 3 minutes, Grilled's Dennis Kong
fell awkwardly, but was determined to stay in the match. That's the spirit! kralj's Dëfrim 'El Diablo' Koka
gave the visitors a 0 - 1 lead after 7 minutes with a superb strike from the right. The home keeper was stunned 17 minutes into the match when he misjudged the free kick by Vittorio Capitani
and dived in the wrong direction. The visitors increased the lead to 0 - 2. After this, you could see that the players of kralj were more interested in killing time than scoring more goals. kralj's Vicente García Castris
was shown a yellow card after 21 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Grilled's Pompeo Bellamoli
refused to leave the field after injuring his achilles tendon after 22 minutes. Alija Zrnić
increased the visitors' lead by putting a volley away after a pass from the right. 0 - 3. Vittorio Capitani
was, after 30 minutes, almost able to extend the visitors' lead with a well placed diving header after the ball had looped into the centre, but the home side's keeper Dan Seng
made the save. 33 minutes in, kralj's Liborio Bello
received a yellow card for going into a challenge studs first. With 39 minutes played, kralj's well-worked indirect free kick caused havoc in the penalty area, and when the ball eventually fell to Dëfrim 'El Diablo' Koka
he gleefully slotted the ball home to make it 0 - 4. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 4. kralj had most of the ball, with 64 percent of possession.
The bench was restless, and with 46 minutes passed Grilled's coach gave 梁 (Liang) 力勇 (Liyong)
the opportunity the player had been hoping for. 凌 (Ling) 福泉 (Fuquan)
reluctantly left the field. 54 minutes into the match, Dëfrim 'El Diablo' Koka
came through the middle and almost added to his team's lead, but the shot went wide. With 61 minutes played, Rijad 'Jare' Gačanović
of kralj fell dramatically just outside the penalty area. However, the referee was unimpressed, and booked him for diving. After 62 minutes, an incisive pass through the middle gave Joža 'Ljudožder' Domazet
a chance to increase the lead for kralj, and he did not disappoint. The score was then 0 - 5. After 73 minutes, a mistake by the home side's left defence allowed Dëfrim 'El Diablo' Koka
to get through. He outclassed the home side's keeper, adding another goal for the visitors. 0 - 6. That was his third goal of the match - a hat trick for Dëfrim 'El Diablo' Koka
. Vittorio Capitani
increased kralj's lead to 0 - 7 with a superb free kick strike that flew in just under the far top corner. 81 minutes into the game a free kick by Vittorio Capitani
found its way through the home side's poorly assembled defensive formation, making kralj's lead 0 - 8. That made three goals for Vittorio Capitani
and he was marked down for the hat trick. With 88 minutes played, the Grilled coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. Walter Ross
came on, Hilal Bakhtiar
had to leave the fray. As the captain was no longer on the pitch, 田 (Tian) 勇航 (Yonghang)
took over the role of being the Grilled captain. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by kralj, with 68 percent of the ball.
Grilled's best player was Shiya Shaahee
. Dennis Kong
turned in a dismal performance, however. kralj's top performer was clearly Dëfrim 'El Diablo' Koka
. On the other hand, Sanjin Kuruzović
's play was disheartening. The match ends 0 - 8.
