The rematch between Altinordu and Burnley ends in a simple tie

26.07.2019 19:45


After the earlier match which saw Palmeiras beat Slavia and accede to the final for the second year in a row, the last game of the day between Altinordu and Burnley became just a matter of pride. In fact, having lost their opening matches, both the Turks and the Brits would be wanting to win in order to get their first three points. However, there was also a score to settle between the two, as Burnley had defeated Altinordu with a 2:1 win back in 2017 on their way to the final.

It wasn't long after the start of the first half before we got to see the first goal. After picking up a rebound ball inside of Burnley's box, Kaya found the winning shot into the bottom left hand corner. Burnley tried to react to correct things, but they seemed to have difficulty getting up towards their opponent's goal. At the 13th minute they did develop an interesting play, barely missing tying the match as the ball flew past the left hand post. Three minutes later it was the Turks who came really close to doubling their advantage after a back and forth between attack and defense, but they were denied the goal by the right hand post. After the mandatory water break, the teams returned to the pitch but not much changed. Altinordu kept on controlling the tempo of the match, with the English seldom being able to cause any concern to the Turks' defense.

The second half saw Burnley come back on the pitch with a different attitude. The resolve was obviously to course correct the direction of the match, and no more than two minutes went by before they managed to do so. After being awarded a corner kick, the ball was placed to the far left post and headed in by Mellon. After that, the match pretty much toned down quite a bit - perhaps due to exhaustion brought on by the intense humid heat or maybe more just due to a lack of motivation. Fact is that the rest of the second half was played at a very low tempo and not much else worthy of note occurred. In the end the score would remain unchanged, with both teams seemingly content to walk away with a point each.

In the end, the last match of the day was a rather well balanced affair. Though the Turks were the first to strike after just three minutes, they were unable to increase their advantage and in the end the British were able to catch back up with them a mere two minutes after the start of the second half. Perhaps it wasn't the most exciting of games, but the spectators and fans can both be happy as they got to see one goal per half.
