Damien1990 vs Wayne_Rooney
Immediately both teams pressed from the start with Damien almost scoring from intercepting my midfielder, but for a last ditch challenge.
It took about 15 minutes for the first real chance which fell to Damien hitting the post from a long range strike.
Soon after, Damien paid the price for a high line and nearly conceded but for a hesitant Kiebling in front of goal.
From the resulting save, the GK threw it straight to Kiebling who weaved past the defence and was rewarded a somewhat dubious penaty which was tucked away after 18 minutes by Schurrie.
Despite the goal, the game remained even with myself continuing to struggle against Damien's Barca-esque pressing game. He was rewarded with a goal on the stroke of half time after a lovely delicate chip from Hulk after he was left unmarked in the area. The real question is, was it intentional?
However it wasn't long before I re-gained the lead after Kiebling broke away from the defence and finessed it passed the on-rushing goalie. 2-1.
Seemingly Damien's players had tired from their early pressure and gaps were left to exploit in a more one-sided second half with Renato Augusto beating the offsite trap to make it 3-1.
Once again the two strikers were causing havock and after a quick turn from Augusto it was a 2v1 situation with him passing it across the goal to Kiebling to tap into an empty net after 82 minutes. The game was over by this point yet the Leverkusen strikers continued to confuse the Porto defenders and Augusto headed the 5th in the 90th minute.
