PREVIEW: The final round to crown the Champion is here!

The KO Stage of the eFootball™ Championship Pro 2023 will be streamed live tomorrow Saturday at 13:00 CEST on eFootball's YouTube channel.

After a Regular League that has left 7 rounds full of memorable matches, the competition's end arrives with the KO Stage, which will proclaim one of the 6 clubs in contention as Champion. The Knockout Stage will begin with the two quarterfinals pitting FC Bayern München against AS Roma on one side and Arsenal FC against AC Milan on the other. The winner of each match will advance to the semifinals where FC Barcelona, after topping the league, and Manchester United, runners-up in the league after being level on points with the Culers but having a worse goal difference in their head-to-head encounter, are already awaiting them. The semifinals will be followed by the Grand Final to bring the competition to a conclusion and reveal the new kings of eFootball™. All matches will be played as best of 3 games with no game ending in a draw, so, if necessary, the tie-breaker will be played in extra time with two halves and a penalty shoot-out if required.

The outcome of all these matches can be followed in a live streaming starting tomorrow Saturday at 13:00 CEST on the YouTube and Facebook channels of eFootball™.



The first match of the day will pit the Germans against the Italians in the quarterfinals. The Bavarians finished fourth in the regular season after losing all three games against Manchester United on the final day of the season. AS Roma, meanwhile, finished fifth after a season of ups and downs that ended on a high note with a two-game win over league leaders FC Barcelona. This latest performance may give a motivating boost to the Giallorossi who arrive in Barcelona with their usual trio captained by ASR_URMA43 in the company of ASR_STIFFLER and ASR_Gagliardo28. For their part, the Bavarians arrive this time with a squad of four players led by the Spanish captain FCB_Jose, accompanied by his trusty right-hand man FCB_Mestre, the Turkish Mucahit21 and the young Brazilian debutant on matchday 2, JVictor. The matchday 3 clash between the two teams ended in victory for FC Bayern after ASR_URMA43 drew with FCB_Jose 2-2 and ASR_STIFFLER and ASR_Gagliardo28 lost to Mucahit21 and FCB_Mestre by 2-1 and 1-0 respectively, so anything can really happen with two such tough teams.


The second quarterfinal will be a rematch of the last regular league match in which the Gunners suffered a heavy defeat against the Rossoneri. Against all odds, the Italian side swept aside the Londoners to record a clean sweep and claim the final place in the Knockout stage. Captain ACM Naples17x defeated Ostrybuch 0-2, while FRANKINO and ACM Sasinho did the same with INDOMINATOR and Roksa22 1-2 and 1-4, respectively. Both teams return with the same players, so the memory of that last encounter will be present throughout the clash and it will soon be known whether AC Milan will be a sort of bogeyman for Arsenal FC or whether the Gunners will take their revenge on the Italians.

SEMIFINAL 1: FC BARCELONA - Quarterfinal 1 Winner

After finishing top of the regular league, FC Barcelona won a direct ticket to the semifinals where they will face the winner of the match between FC Bayern München and AS Roma. Against the former they won by the narrowest of margins on matchday 2 and against the latter they suffered a heavy defeat on the last day of the league. A semifinal in Bo3 format is always a different scenario, so the team of The Palma, Ettorito97 and Alex Alguacil will certainly be following the quarterfinals in detail.

SEMIFINAL 2: MANCHESTER UNITED - Quarterfinal 2 Winner

A Manchester United side on the rise in recent league games managed to sneak through as the competition's second semifinalists after solidly beating a slumping FC Bayern München side on the final day of the regular season. The Red Devils were level on points with league leaders FC Barcelona, but due to a worse goal difference in their head-to-head clash, they had to settle for second place. In the semifinals they await the winner of the quarterfinal between Arsenal FC and AC Milan. Against the former they were defeated in every game they played, while against the Rossoneri Manchester United earned two wins and a draw.

GRAND FINAL : Semifinal 1 Winner - Semifinal 2 Winner

After the two semifinals, the Grand Final will be held to determine the champion of the 2023 season. Afterwards, awards for Goal of the Day and MVP of the KO Stage will also be announced.
