In the penultimate week of La Berliga some teams fell behind, but two teams have a shot to top the table.
Week 9 Recap
Werder Beermen got the best of Atletico Madrink with a 21-17 final score in a beer-filled derby. With the win, the Beermen put some space between them and the bottom of the table, and they secured at least a fourth-place finish. Liviu Dan was the star for the Beermen along with a strong performance from teammate Amin Khalaf.
Secondly, Real Social Dads beat Shaktar Donuts 22-14. The two teams tied their first match, but the Dads have been in great form and asserted their dominance. They remain only two points behind first place, and they have a shot at the regular season title on the last day. Valentino Pessina recorded an impressive 7.8 performance for the Dads.
In the all-important top of the table clash, Birrareal came out on top 25-20 against Pathetic Bilbao. Before this match, both were vying for first place, but now Bilbao has fallen off the pace. Bilbao was in control most of the season, but poor form at the end of the campaign has doomed them. Lisan Skenderi claimed Man of the Match honors for Birrareal, who now are two points ahead of the Dads going into the last matchday.
Week 10 Preview
First on the list, Pathetic Bilbao faces Atletico Madrink. Atletico will be hoping to stave off a last-place finish, and Pathetic Bilbao will be hoping to build momentum going into the playoffs and hold on to their third-place finish. Fubles is predicting Bilbao as slight favorites for the game, perhaps the advantage would be larger if Bilbao was in better form.
Next, Werder Beermen take on Shaktar Donuts. A win for Shaktar would secure a fifth-place finish, and the Beermen will be hoping to knick a third-place finish. The Beermen won by two goals in the pair’s first match, and Fubles is predicting another win for the Beermen side.
Last but certainly not least, the regular season title will be decided when Real Social Dads and Birrareal play. A win for the Dads and they would take first place. But if the game ends in a draw of Birrareal win, Birrareal will remain in the first-place spot. Birrareal got the best of the Dads in their first match, but both teams have been in red-hot form. However, Fubles is predicting a big win for Birrareal.
In week 9 of tipping, capdom took the lead at the top by predicting all games correctly. But, it is still anyone’s game and you can follow the tipping progress here.
Liviu Dan, Valentino Pessina and Lisan Skenderi won Man of the Match honors this week. They won a Wildcorn Popcorn “Wildpack” and a two week trial to Blinkist. At the end of the season, the player with the most Man of the Match awards will get a 50 euro credit for Macron and a 50% discount at Buckle and Seam.
A playoff schedule has been set for La Berliga after the regular season. There will be two quarterfinal games on November 24, two semifinal games on December 1, and the final and bronze match will take place on December 8. So, the final positions in the league table will have a huge impact on the playoff matchups.
