FC Köln on the top of the VBL Table after 4th Matchday
Four matchdays are played in the North-West Division of the VBL. While the favourite rated team from Bremen is still searching for his form, the gamers from FC Köln are already in great shape.
After four matches, there is still no clear trend in the VBL North-West Division. There is a difference of just six points between first and eighth place. Especially the weaker rated teams have had a strong start to the season. Some strong rated teams, like the team from Bremen, have already left points at the beginning of the season.
Werder Bremen Stars struggles against smaller teams
The team from the Weser had to be satisfied with two draws on Tuesday. The team around Michael 'MegaBit' Bittner did not get beyond 4:4 against Hannover 96 and Holstein Kiel. Although MegaBit won both of his single games. But the new singing from Spvgg Greuther Fürth Fabio 'Fifabio97' Sabbagh did not get beyond a 1:1 in his games. In the doubles, the Bremen team could not convince, so they came second in both games. The champion of the last season stocks on a disappointing 7th place after four games.
FC Cologne convinced
The top match of the fourth matchday took place at the Rein. FC Köln welcomed the gamers from Borussia Mönchengladbach. The Cologne team suffered a severe defeat in the first singles match. But the second singles match and the doubles were won by the FC gamers.
In their second match of the evening, against Eintracht Braunschweig, 4 points were enough for Cologne to secure the top of the table ahead of Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Mönchengladbach.
FC ST. Pauli with another outstanding performance
The FC thus ousted the Werkself from Leverkusen from the top. The Bayer 04 Team could not convince against the outsiders from FC St. Pauli and SC Paderborn on this matchday. Two overall losses of 3-6 each were not enough to defend the top of the table.
In the still early stage of the season, The virtual “Kiez Kickers” were already able to mark theirs with this surprise success. The team from the Reeperbahn had already sensationally defeated Werder Bremen. With one game less, the St. Paulians currently rank 9th and have justified hopes of becoming the surprise of the season.
The VBL will start its next double match on November 18th with the South-East Divison. On November 24th, the clubs of the North-West Division will again be able to show their skills. Then the match days five and six will take place.
