The duo of Kai ‘DETO’ Wollin and Marc ‘MARC_LDW23’ Landwehr started the long eSports evening. In a 2 v 2 game against FCSP the 90 virtual minutes ended in a 1-1 draw. The overall score in the clash with St. Pauli was 4-4.
For the 2 v 2 against HSV, Fabian ‘B04_DUBZJE’ De Cae played alongside Landwehr. Leverkusen took the lead on four minutes with a strike from the virtual Samed Onur but Hamburg hit back on 90 minutes. That meant this 2 v 2 game ended all square at 1-1. The overall win was secured as Landwehr and De Cae had already picked up four points in the 1 v 1 games against HSV.
The next opponents on the night were VfL Bochum. The club from the Ruhr Valley are runaway leaders in the North-West division – and they demonstrated their strength in the 1 v 1 game on PlayStation 4. Landwehr, previously unbeaten in 1 v 1 matches since joining Bayer 04, suffered a heavy 7-1 defeat against Bochum’s Cihan ‘CIHAN_OFFICIAL’ Yasarlar.
#B04eSports player ‘B04_DUBZJE’ conceded late-on in the 1 v 1 on Xbox against Ali ‘PREDATORFIFA’ Oskoui Rad and drew 1-1. As the 2 v 2 with ‘DETO’ and ‘MARC_LDW23’ produced a 2-2 draw, matchday 19 ended with an overall 5-2 defeat against Bochum.
The last opponents of the evening were FC Schalke 04. In the 1 v 1 on PlayStation 4, ‘DETO’ narrowly lost 2-1 in the opener against the Schalke player Joe ‘JH7’ Hellmann. The same scoreline, albeit in favour of the Black and Reds, was achieved by ‘B04_DUBZJE’ in the game against S04 eSports player Julius ‘JULI’ Kühle on Xbox. That meant the decider was the final 2 v 2 game. And how else could the result have been on this long Tuesday evening other than a draw in the fourth 2 v 2 encounter: 1-1 after 90 virtual minutes against the Royal Blues.
