Virtual Bundesliga: What fans can expect on the 5th double match day
This week again, there are two matchdays in the Virtual Bundesliga Club Championship. In the North-West and the South-East Divison, top matches will be played.
In the very balanced North-West Relay of VBL, Bayer Leverkusen wants to regain the top of the table. That this will not be an easy mission becomes clear given the waiting opponents on matchdays 9 and 10. At 20 o'clock, the new league leader is waiting for Bayer Leverkusen. The gamers of Borussia Mönchengladbach took away the top position from the Bayer Leverkusen team last weekend. Before the top duel against Borussia Mönchengladbach, another top team is waiting for Bayer Leverkusen. In their first match, the gamers of the "Werkself" have to play against 1 FC Köln. This is the game where the two predecessors of Borussia Mönchengladbach meet at the top of the table. The current leader of the table faces the FC St. Pauli in his first game.
In the lower part of the table, Eintracht Braunschweig may also only play once. The team has so far played nine games, the most in the VBL. After the surprising success last week against Bayer Leverkusen, the team will play SC Paderborn this week. The SC Paderborn is currently in a sovereign eighth place in the table. This means that the gamers from Braunschweig are once again outsiders. Like Eintracht Braunschweig, HSV and Schlake 04 have collected 24 points in the VBL season so far. HSV and Schalke 04 meet at 18.00 o’clock. The HSV will have at 20.00 o’clock another chance to collect points. Then they face Holstein Kiel. Schalke 04 will have the opportunity to fill further their points account against Hannover 96 at 20:00.
The top favourite for the title was SV Werder Bremen before the season. But the team disappointed at the beginning of the season. But little by little, the team is getting in better shape. The favourites around Star MegaBit want to prove this rising form also on the next matchday. However, they may only do this once this week. At 18.00 the Bremen team will play against 1 FC Köln. Another duel between two top teams. The SV Werder Bremen team will skip the second game.
Leipziger in top form - Now it's time to play against the pursuer from Fürth
The gamers of RB Leipzig are in impressive form. Now a real test for stars of RB is coming up. The third-placed of the South-East Relay, the SpVgg Greuther Fürth. After the convincing 9-0 against the second-placed team from Heidenheim, another opportunity for the gamers from Leipzig to show their dominance in the South-East Relay. For the South-East division team stars, it is also the only possibility to collect points this week. They skip the second game.
This creates a chance for 1.FC Heidenheim and Spvgg Greuther Fürth to get closer to the leaders. Besides the top match against RB, Fürth has to play aginst Hertha BSC Berlin. 1 FC Heidenheim will play FC Augsburg and 1 FC Nürnberg.
After a thoroughly successful start, the SV Darmstadt 98 team has suffered a severe slump in recent weeks. So, they were passed from 4th place to 11th place. To avoid a further crash, they urgently need to bring points to Darmstadt. This should work this week, first against Jahn Regensburg and then against Hertha BSC.
In the first eight games since their comeback to the VBL, the SV Sandhausen could not win. This should now finally work. The next try will be made by the gamers of SV Sandhausen against 1 FC Nürnberg and against 1 FSV Mainz 05.
The Würzburger Kickers showed last week how fast teams could work their way up the table. It went from 10th to 5th place for the club, but this week the Würzburger Kickers are only allowed to play once. Against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, the points account is to be further increased.
The 9 and 10 matchday takes place on Tuesday and Wednesday. On Tuesday, the teams from the north-west will be active. On Wednesday, the teams from the south-east will be at the start. Some of the matches of the 9th matchday start at 16.30, but mainly at 18.00. The 10th matchday starts at 20:00. One match per season is played at 21.30.
