Brann 0 - 2 EVILinc

Overcast weather free of rain made for a crowd turnout of 3312 at Brann Stadion today. Martin Felix Schütte was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . Brann had chosen a strategic 5-4-1 formation. Starters: Bethusy-Huc - Leenaers, Ryneveen, Kresnik, Cirigliano, Fjelblad - Couceiro, Dejaegher, Lesueur, Martinho - Avidar.

EVILinc started off with a 2-5-3 lineup. Lineup: Murphy - Chí Minh, Roberts - Guest, Hutton, McMullan, Skipper, Berger - Koula, Baratović, Faulkner.

The wings were the focus of most of Brann's attacks on this day, taking advantage of their brilliant level with that tactic. Jarrod Skipper had a good opportunity to give EVILinc the lead as he charged down the right and struck the ball towards the top corner, but the home team's goalkeeper made the save. With the clock showing 8 minutes played, a great pass from the defensive line of Brann resulted in a counterattack that was smoothly brought under control by Ofek Avidar in the centre of the opposition's penalty area, but his finish went high. Lê Chí Minh gave the visitors the lead 19 minutes into the match to make it 0 - 1. The goal was scored from the penalty spot after a handball in the penalty area. The teams went for the halftime break at 0 - 1. Possession in the forty-five minutes was dominated by EVILinc, with 65 percent of the ball.

After 56 minutes a combination in the middle resulted in a through ball for Ian Faulkner who increased EVILinc's lead to 0 - 2. After 65 minutes, there was a bit of a mixup on the field as Brann found themselves out of position and their organisation level dropped to poor. Brann's Thomas Fjelblad was shown a yellow card after 70 minutes for slicing down an opponent. Arron McMullan's knee will be throbbing for days, but thankfully for EVILinc, he bravely continued in the match. After 80 minutes, Brann switched Tobias Bethusy-Huc with Sabino Fernando de Sousa, hoping for a quick impact on the pitch. With 80 minutes played, the Brann coach decided a substitution may help turn the game around. Alexey Sereda came on, Olivio Couceiro had to leave the fray. As Olivio Couceiro exited the field, Scott Dejaegher volunteered to be the new set pieces taker. Players in Brann heard their coach's words ringing in their ears and steered their central attacks to the wings instead. Brann had a brilliant opportunity to reply as Heitor Martinho received a high ball from the right, striking the ball in the air. Only Ross Murphy's reflexes saved him. After 82 minutes Brann's Máximo Martín Cirigliano contracted a slight foot injury, but didn't want to leave the game. Miroslav Baratović wanted to play on, but the EVILinc coach had other ideas, and he was replaced 89 minutes into the game by Tika Tuckey. Ian Faulkner left the field with a smile on his face as he was substituted 89 minutes into the game, as his team was in the lead. Wally Mueller was the replacement. The coach of EVILinc was happy with the game so far, but still wanted to change the line up. After 89 minutes, Tancredi Locca came on for Mitch Koula. Possession in this half belonged to EVILinc, who controlled the ball 68 percent of the time.

Brann's best player was Ofek Avidar. Scott Dejaegher on the other hand, had a terrible day. Stewart Hutton performed admirably for EVILinc. However, Ross Murphy made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 0 - 2.
