#B04eSports: Youngster Landwehr remains unbeaten in singles

A double matchday against the Hamburg clubs: On Tuesday night, 9 February, the #B04eSports players faced FC St. Pauli and Hamburg SV in the Virtual Bundesliga (VBL). While the score against the virtual FCSP team is currently a 3-3 draw, the Black and Reds have a 4-1 lead against HSV. The two-v-two games on matchdays 17 and 18 were postponed due to the circumstances about the advent of winter in northern Germany.

The VBL organisers said safe travel to their clubs could not be guaranteed for players because of the current weather situation. The double matches for the #B04eSports players against the Hamburg teams will be played on 16 February.

That meant the full focus of the Leverkusen players was on the singles matches on the night. Youngster Marc ‘Marc_LDW23’ Landwehr kicked off against FCSP on PlayStation 4 – and he immediately picked up the first three points for his club. In the clash with St. Pauli’s Tom ‘FCSP TOM’ Köst, the Leverkusen player gained the upper hand with goals from the virtual Yannick Schlößer (44’) and Lucas Alario (70’). Köst had levelled through Daniel Kofi-Kyereh (54’).

In the second match of the night, Fabian ‘B04_DUBZJE’ De Cae played Mustafa ‘XMUSTI19’ Cankal on XBOX. The experienced #B04eSports player was on the wrong end of a 4-1 scoreline. De Cae was only able to score a consolation goal through Schlößer in the closing stages.

De Cae wins against HSV

In his second match of the night, Landwehr took on Hamburg's Cina ‘LOSTINTHEWAVESZ’ Hosseindjani. The Leverkusen player lead 2-0 and 3-1 in the first half. He took the latter advantage into the break. But, in spite of a continuing good performance, Landwehr conceded two goals late on; Hosseindjani picked up a point. The previous displays from the 18-year-old newcomer 'MARC _LDW23' have been impressive: He remains unbeaten after five singles matches for Bayer 04 in the VBL (three wins, two draws).

To round off the double matchday, De Cae secured another three points for the Black and Reds on Xbox: The 90 virtual minutes ended with a convincing 2-0 win against Hamburg's Leon ‘HSV LEON’ Krasniqi. That means the Werkself are still in sixth place in the VBL table.

Ruhr Valley clubs await

In addition to the previously mentioned doubles matches against St. Pauli and HSV, there are other clashes in store for the #B04eSports players on 16 February: The first opponents are VfL Bochum (18.00 CET) and that is followed by the virtual meeting with Schalke 04.
