My dad went on a business trip early that morning - right after our aforementioned tour to the Czech Republic - so the new ground in Halle was to be done alone.
I decided, due to lack of Sunday matches and time, to watch a match of a lower women’s division. Luckily it was played on a 60x40m pitch with 8 players a side, so the ladies had not too big problems to run from one end of the pitch to the other one within less than 30 seconds. All in all, most of the players were not as weak as expected before.
Due to a goalkeeper’s mistake it was ensured after not even two minutes, that this match won’t end goalless. After 10 minutes, Halle had their first good opportunity and from then on, they were slightly better than Oranienburg until halftime. But Motor wasted too many chances, so 1:2 was the result after 30 minutes.
In the next half of an hour, Oranienburg used about half of their opportunities and Halle continued wasting chances. Even a penalty went begging. 1:4 was the final result.
After arriving back home, I watched Esperance Tunis vs ES Setif on live-streaming web-TV. Taraji won 2:0 in a - once again - great match, so my favourite Tunisian team will face Wydad Casablanca in the final match of the Arabian Championsleague.
