Langer 1 - 2 Karak

Dark skies made the crowd of 1263 at Wittelsbacher Klasse a little nervous, but the rain held off. Stefano Laurenza was the appointed referee with assistance provided by Armin Handschin and Adam Turk. Langer had chosen a strategic 2-5-3 formation. Starters: Alvarez - Bajpai, Provost - Manjrekar, Garbeck, Walvi, Kazmi, Kumar - Deo, Ariyapadi, Nandini.

A 5-5-0 alignment was the formation of choice for Karak. Lineup: Zeeshan - Phadnis, Dikholakar, Zaman, Kalsang, Kumar - Ghosh, Sabesan, Rastogi, Mashelkar, Swami -.

With 26 minutes played, seemingly due to lack of experience, Shailesh Mashelkar needlessly tripped an opponent just outside the penalty area, but the free kick that followed didn't succeed. Chellappan Swami had a good try after 31 minutes, coming in on a fine move from the left, but the ball went wide. The referee showed Karak's Pranav Phadnis the yellow card after a particularly nasty challenge. 0 - 0 was the score after the first half. Karak claimed to have seen most of the ball, and the statistics agreed with them - possession being 56 percent.

Pranav Phadnis knew he was in trouble after hacking down an opponent. Despite his pleading with the referee, the Karak player was shown a second yellow card and dismissed from the game. The player down was Aanandaprakash Nandini. The Langer bench looked worried for a while, but in the end he managed to get up. A badly positioned defensive formation on a free kick after 60 minutes led to Karak's Nitin 'Socrates' Ghosh giving the visitors the lead 0 - 1. 65 minutes in, and Langer were able to score the equalising goal to make it 1 - 1 when Santosh Walvi picked up a pass coming in from the right and chipped it past the away team's keeper. Karak took the lead after Nitin 'Socrates' Ghosh curved a free kick into the net. 1 - 2 There was concern in the stands when, at the 72 minute mark, Karak's Shailesh Mashelkar hit the ground hard, but he refused the attention of the trainer and rejoined his teammates on the pitch. Kartikeya 'Peacock' Sabesan really should have scored when he was chosen by fate to confront a wide open goal following a great play by Nirbhay Rastogi after a corner. Possession in this half belonged to Karak, who controlled the ball 55 percent of the time.

Aanandaprakash Nandini performed admirably for Langer. However, Matías Alvarez made a disastrous appearance. Karak's best player was Nirbhay Rastogi. Chintan Kumar turned in a dismal performance, however. The match ends 1 - 2.
