There could hardly have been a better start to the new season in the Virtual Bundesliga (VBL) for the Black and Reds: A 5-2 win against Holstein Kiel was followed later on the evening by a 9-0 victory against Schalke 04. That means the Werkself eSports players are currently top of the North West division on 14 points.
Bayer 04's opponents Bochum and Hannover are next to each other in the table: VfL are currently seventh with seven points and Hannover 96 are in eighth place with one point less.
At the same time, the team from Lower Saxony have only played once. They had to be spectators on the second matchday due to the unequal number of teams. "They started well against Wolfsburg. There will be more tight and exciting clashes," warned Fabian ‘B04_DUBZJE’ de Cae, who started on Xbox and won both one-on-one encounters for openers.
All games involving the #B04eSports players will be streamed live as usual on the Bayer 04 Twitch channel.
