FCB Esports primed for win-or-bust Galatasaray clash
The situation is difficult, but not hopeless. After FC Bayern Esports slipped to the bottom of the table last matchday, only a win will do on Saturday (15:00 CET) against Galatasaray Istanbul. "This matchday will decide whether we can turn things around. If we lose, it's over. This is an all-or-nothing game," stated coach Matthias Luttenberger, setting a clear objective for Matchday 6 of the KONAMI eFootball.Pro League.
Five points separate FCB from the desired sixth place, which would entitle them to participate in the playoffs. Therefore, a win against the Turks, who have one more point, is particularly important. "We need six points so we have to throw in everything," demanded the Austrian, who expects a "mentality game".
Familiar environment for better results
To achieve this goal, Luttenberger and his boys have made some changes. Alex Alguacil, Miguel Mestre, José Sánchez will not play together in Madrid as usual, but at home. "Maybe we can use the familiar environment to finally show our strong training achievements on the day of the game," Luttenberger hopes.
Play like this from the friendly against Lazio would work out well in the league:
Galatasaray on the rise
However, the task against Galatasaray will be anything but easy. The Istanbul side are in good form, scoring four points in each of the last two weeks. "They are especially dangerous when they get into a flow, we have to prevent that. We have to play offensively and win. If necessary, a dirty victory will do," Luttenberger declared.
