The KONAMI eFootball.Pro League is entering the home straight. On Saturday (from 13:15 CEST via live stream on Twitch), the FC Bayern esports team take on Barcelona on Matchday 7 - and they have a plan. "We have to pick up as many points as possible. Two wins and we'll overtake them," said a combative Miguel Mestre in the run-up to the clash. The fourth-placed Catalans are currently sitting in one of the coveted play-off places.

After the successful clashes against Galatasaray, Bayern are now back within striking distance in eighth place and have the wind in their sails after what's been a difficult season so far. "We were able to build up a lot of confidence against Galatasaray. We had two very impressive games and actually deserved to pick up more points. But that's exactly how we have to continue, then the results we need will come," said a confidant Mestre.
With three matchdays to go, the race for the play-off spots is tight:
Friendship put on hold
For Mestre and teammates Alex Alguacil and José Sánchez, the clash against Barça will be a special one, and not just because of how the league table looks. After all, they're up against a team from their home country. "There's always extra motivation against Spanish teams. We also all know each other very well and are friends," explained Mestre, adding: "But it's matchday on Saturday, so our friendship will be put on hold! We want to achieve the best we can for our team. It's a final!"
