Munich (AP) - Full speed towards defending the title: Werder Bremen's e-athletes are at the top of the table after the penultimate day of the VBL Club Championship in FIFA 20. Only one game day separates the green-whites from the renewed club championship.
The reigning champions did not show any weakness in the 9-0 win over Holstein Kiel. With 114 points, the team is confidently in first place. Behind them stumbled, Borussia Mönchengladbach and Bayer 04 Leverkusen, two teams from the chasing trio.
The title ambitions of the Gladbachers in particular were severely dampened. The foals were beaten 1: 7 against VfL Bochum. Before the matchday still tied with Bremen, the team is now eighth behind in third place.
"You have to honestly say: Now a miracle has to be done," said Gladbach professional Richard "Der_Gaucho10" Hormes in an interview at "ProSieben MAXX". His team-mate Yannick "Jeffryy95" Reiners became clearer: "We said goodbye."
On point four with 106 points: Leverkusen. Already on Wednesday the Werkself did not go beyond a 4: 4 on points in the 16th of the table, FC Augsburg. With nine points to be awarded, the teams only have theoretical chances of winning the championship.
Only SpVgg Greuther Fürth was harmless - and is now Bremen's first pursuer in the title race. The shamrocks celebrated a loose 9-0 win against the tail light of Wehen Wiesbaden and climbed to second place in the table. With 109 points, the team is five points behind Werder.
The decision about the championship in the Virtual Bundesliga Club Championship will be made on February 26th. On the last match day, all games take place in parallel. The kick-off is at 8.30 p.m.
