who would take their place in the Final from
the second Semi-Final? The two teams set to
do battle were Fabryka Zieleni (Pol) against
Alea Iacta Est (Pol).
two teams met in the Cup Quarter-Final stage
of the 2018 Gdansk Tournament. It was Fabryka
Zieleni (playing as Bulota PK) that emerged
victorious just over 6 months ago. They were
favourites for the tournament today as they
boasted a 100% record in the group phase today
and had 13 wins out of 14 in eurofootballfives.com
Iacta Est had been good today but this was a
brand new level. Alea Iacta Est had 4 wins and
2 defeats today. They had the second biggest
goal difference today +18 behind their opponents
+23. This game could be explosive.
looked like we would get a repeat of last year's
Quarter-Final. Fabryka Zieleni established a
2-0 lead. Dariusz Frost and Lukasz Abryszinski
scored the goals. Lukasz Abryszinski was second
top scorer at the 2018 tournament with 14 goals.
He was now on 15 for today.
Iacta Est were not going to give up though.
Pedro Silveira's seventh goal of the tournament
reduced the deficit to 2-1. Into the final minute
of the game and Alea Iacta Est almost snatched
a draw and a penalty shoot-out. A cross from
the right saw Jakub Szlezinger unmarked at the
far post 5 yards out but he couldn't quite reach
it, the ball was fizzed across and just too
high on the half volley as the ball was poked
over the target.
Alea Iacta Est it was another tournament exit
at the hands of Bulota PK/Fabryka Zieleni. For
their opponents it was successive Cup Finals
at the Gdansk Tournament.
