#B04eSports: Chance of making top six in the VBL division missed

The Bayer 04 eSports team cannot finish in the top six of the North West division of the VBL Club Championship after a pointless double matchday. The Leverkusen console pros lost 9-0 to both Hansa Rostock and FC Köln on Tuesday night.

On matchday 23, the #B04eSports players faced Hansa Rostock in the early evening. Furkan ‘FURKY’ Kayacik, on PlayStation 5, suffered a 3-0 defeat in the 1v1 game. His teammate Marc ‘MARC_LDW23’ Landwehr, usually at home on PS5, switched to Xbox Series S/X – and he ended up on the wrong end of a 1-0 scoreline. Landwehr and Paul ‘B04_PAUL’ Degner were beaten 2-0 in the 2v2 encounter.

The Black and Reds then went into the games against FC Köln with the same line-up. There were no points later in the evening either: Kayacik lost 2-1, Landwehr 3-0, and the 2v2 ended in a 1-0 defeat for the Leverkusen team.

one matchday left

The #B04eSports team have dropped down to eleventh in the table in the North West division and the gap to sixth place is now 19 points.

Next Tuesday, 1 March (from 20.00 CET), brings the match against the ninth-placed side Borussia Mönchengladbach – it will be the last for Landwehr and Co. in the current VBL CC season. As usual, the fixture will be broadcast on the Bayer 04 Twitch channel.
