Not to be outdone by the Super Bowl, sparks flew when La Berliga returned back for the second week of league play.
Week 2 Recap
In the week’s first match, Atletico Madrink downed Werder Beermen by a score of 19-12. Atletico rebounded from their first week lost, and they caused extra misery to the Beermen who have now lost the first two games of the season. Kiryl Karetnikau was the stand-out performer for Atletico, and his team will hope to now gain momentum as La Berliga progresses.
Next, Birrareal asserted their dominance over Real Social Dads and won 20-10. Birrareal had a team full of top performances including a stellar game from both Kado Damball and Lisan Skenderi. But, it was Babacar Diouf who stole the show for Birrareal and won Man of the Match honors. Salvo Davì turned in a great performance for the struggling Real Social Dads who lost their first two games after finishing second last season.
In Sunday’s game, Pathetic Bilbao toppled Shaktar Donuts with a 20-14 score. Pathetic Bilbao continued their hot start to the season, and they are looking like early contenders to end the dominance of Birrareal. The Donuts also won their first game, but they will have to regroup after a tough loss. Marcus Vieira took home his second Man of the Match award this season for Pathetic Bilbao.
Week 3 Preview
To start the third week, Werder Beermen and Birrareal will showdown. The two teams have started the season in opposite form, with Birrareal comfortably winning two games and the Beermen stumbling to two defeats. Fubles is predicting these teams’ fortunes to continue in the same manner, and Birrareal will be a tipper’s favorite.
Real Social Dads and Shaktar Donuts will square off. The Dads will be looking to avenge a slow start to the season, and the Donuts will be looking to capitalize on the Dads poor form. Fubles has this down as a close one, but a slight edge is going in favor of the Donuts.
Finally, Pathetic Bilbao and Atletico Madrink will close out this week of matches. Atletico can build on last week’s win, and Bilbao will have to be wary of letting Atletico Madrink back into the top of the league table. This will be another game that will be difficult for tippers to predict, but Fubles gives a slight edge to Pathetic Bilbao.
