Esports: Force a grand finale with a result against United
The situation is clear for the FC Bayern esports team. With two matchdays to go in the KONAMI eFootball.Pro League, the gap to the coveted play-off places is two points. Hence there can only be one goal for the clashes with Machester United on Saturday (16:55 CEST). "Everything's at stake. We can't afford to make any mistakes so that we stay in the race," stressed coach Matthias Luttenberger.
The English side currently sit one place above Bayern in seventh and are level on points with Barcelona, who occupy the crucial sixth place. "We need to get at least four points to move past United," demanded the Austrian, looking forward to the weekend with confidence. Miguel Mestre, Alex Alguacil and José Sánchez have put in some impressive performances in recent weeks to fight their way back into contention.
Leapfrog United and secure the play-off spot on the last matchday. That's the plan:
Man Utd also earned a win and a draw against fourth-placed Schalke a fortnight ago to halt their negative trend. "United have slipped back a bit in the last few weeks and they were lucky to pick up points on the last matchday. Our form has been on the rise and we want to underline that," Luttenberger said confidently, adding, "It's in our own hands. We aim to fight our way through to the final on the last matchday."
