This evening we claimed a draw against Grüne Tulpe. We had many good chances and took the lead before half time after going 1-0 down. The second half was fiercely contested, and we felt unlucky to twice concede an equaliser and not to win the game. The opponent had few chances but made them count with fast counter attacks and good runs. We controlled the game however for large spells and had most of the possession, making them do most of the running. We showed excellent passing, moved the ball around the pitch well and patiently built attacks.
