The pitch, a major concern before the match, was becoming increasingly sodden agen judi bola terpercaya cut-up after more heavy rain, but Sunderlagen judi bola terpercaya were unfazed. Altidore fed Emanuele Giaccherini, who forced Costel Pantilimon into a solid stop.

A number of substitutions at the break, which included the introduction of Spain international Jesus Navas, coupled with the deterioration of the turf, saw the game dissolve as a spectacle, with a scrappy, subdued affair taking over.
