Mathers vs Raúl Cup
Hey guys, myself, Justice
have decided to make a partnership between our three stories. What this basically means is that we will play versus games against each other using our three teams (Racing Santander, F.C. Viikingit and Botafogo FR), add fictional scenarios involving our three stories, and much, much more. Yes, this is very experimental proccess, but I am confident that it will help to make our story writing to be that bit more enjoyable.

After deciding to do this partnership, we decided to play the Mathers-Raul cup, with two legs, and in two neutral stadiums, to attract more fans. In the first match, Racing Santander dominated every aspect team, with Vikingit failing to score, thanks to the heroic attempts by Racing's goalkeeper, Mario.
Myself and Pauker have already played a little versus competition between F.C. Viikingit and Racing Santander, which was extremely entertaining and very enjoyable to play. It was a two-legged affair which brought plenty of action and excitement. Let's see how it went.
The first game demonstrated the difference in class between our two teams. Racing's players are a step up from Viikingit, but Racing's tactical system was also superb and unbreakable at times. Racing deservedly won the game by a comfortable score of 3-0, and put themselves in a very comfortable position in the tie.
I can certainly say that the second match was full of excitement, and produced seven goals! F.C. Viikingit somehow, and in spectacular fashion, made up the three goal difference by going 3-0 ahead by the 39th minute. However, a spectacular display by Racing saw the game finish with F.C. Viikingit just about earning a 4-3 win, but what was still a huge shock win. With a some tweaks into the side, Raul managed to win the cup on aggregate. It was a spectacular game full of goal action on both sides of the pitch, and was one of the most exciting games that I have played in years of FM, with the goalkeepers tested various times.
The Cup Result
Despite F.C. Viikingit's superb second match fight-back, Racing Santander ran out as winners of the first Mathers-Raúl cup, and deservedly so. They showed their quality to win the tie in the end, even though it was by goal difference. Congratulations to Viikingit for their final match attempts, and indeed to Mathers
, who's tactical prowess earned his side an unexpected, yet well deserved shock win. Long live the relationship between F.C. Viikingit and Racing Santander!
