La Berliga league play was on hiatus for a week, but there was still an all-star game and friendly to be played.
All-Star and Friendly Recap
The All-Star game ended in favor of the Black Shirts by a score 0f 9-1. Unsurprisingly, Marcus Vieira was crowned as Man of the Match, and the performance cemented him as a top La Berliga player. Luca De Fabritiis and Andrea Porelli also had impressive performances for the winning side. Lisan Skenderi was a bright spot for the losing all-star team.
The friendly was an intense and high-scoring draw, ending at 20-20. Pedro Alves claimed Man of the Match honors in the friendly warmup for Week 2.
Week 2 Preview
Werder Beermen will face Atletico Madrink in the first game of the weekend. Both teams faced heavy defeats in the first week, and they will be looking to exact revenge. Fubles is predicting this game to be an even match, so there might not be much difference between these two squads looking to set their season on the right path.
Next, Birrareal and Real Social Dads meet in a showdown of last season’s two strongest teams. The two teams started the new season in very different manners, Birrareal had a convincing win and Real Social Dads struggled to a loss. Fubles is heavily favoring Birrareal to continue their dominance over Real Social Dads.
On Sunday, Pathetic Bilbao and Shaktar Donuts take to the field to square off against each other. This match faces two teams who won their first match of the season, and it will be interesting to see which of the two teams will build on this momentum. Perhaps the winner can even mount a title challenge. Fubles is projecting a convincing win for Pathetic Bilbao, but this game might be difficult for tippers to predict.
