The meeting with the VfL Bochum eSports team started at 15.30 CET with a 2 vs 2 match – with Marc ‘MARC_LDW23’ Landwehr and Mario ‘BULJI’ Lovrinovic involved in a really exciting encounter: Playing against Justin ‘MILKALOVE’ Springer and Timo ‘TIMOX’ Siep, the Leverkusen duo initially held onto a 1-0 lead. But there was a thrilling finish: First, Bochum equalised (79') and then the Black and Reds restored their lead (85'). The VfL eSports players then levelled on 89 minutes and the hard-fought game ended all square at 2-2.
In the following 1 vs 1 between Landwehr and Siep, the Leverkusen player clocked up an emphatic 6-1 win. Bochum's Springer then secured a narrow 3-2 win in the third game against Furkan ‘FURKY’ Kayacik. That meant matchday three ended in a draw.
Matchday four against Borussia Mönchengladbach followed at 17.00 CET.
