Bayern and Arsenal head-to-head trying to keep pace with Barça

FC Bayern and Arsenal FC can drop points against each other, while Manchester United are in the hunt for a top three finish

Matchday 5 is packed with four clashes that could be decisive for many teams. FC Inter's survival hangs in the balance and tomorrow they face a Manchester United side on the rise and with hopes of making it into the top 3. Right after that, FC Bayern and Arsenal FC will face each other with the top spot on the horizon, which is currently held by FC Barcelona who will play the first match of the day against an AS Monaco side who need a point to stay clear of the elimination cut-off. The final game of the day is the Italian derby between AC Milan and AS Roma, who are in danger of elimination if they fail to pick up enough points. The final stretch to the KO Stage begins with more tension than ever.

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



Intense match between the current leader and the reigning champions. FC Barcelona go into Matchday 5 on the back of a clean sweep of wins on Matchday 4 and have widened the gap on their Gunners' chasers by three points. Tomorrow, the blaugranas will have a good opportunity to put more ground between them and Arsenal FC, who face an always tough FC Bayern, in third place, and both teams are expected to drop points along the way. AS Monaco, meanwhile, are in sixth place, on the edge of the relegation zone, with 12 points. The Monegasques suffered a heavy defeat against Arsenal FC last time out, earning just a point thanks to debutant Zilo's equaliser against older brother Ostrybuch. They need to make amends for their disappointment with further points to move closer to KO Stage qualification, but a heavy defeat could push them further down the table.


The Red Devils go into the fifth round of the Regular League on the back of a clean sweep of wins against AS Roma last time out. Frenchmen Lotfi, Kilzyou and Nekza have been slow to get going, but are already showing good signs of their potential. They have a good chance tomorrow to move into the top 3 of the league if they can take advantage of FC Bayern and Arsenal FC dropping points against each other. Against them will be a FC Inter at a low moment that will try to start taking more than a point a day, as the Nerazzurri's chances of qualifying for the KO Stage are running out.


Probably the most eagerly awaited match of the day, a litmus test for both teams. The Bavarians and Gunners are in second and third place respectively, three points apart and with their sights set on leaders FC Barcelona. The Bavarians are solid in defence and winning their games by short margins, while the Gunners are in excellent form, mainly with an unbeaten Roksa22 and a very confident INDOMINATOR. A very tight and intense duel is expected that will surely make more than one person enjoy. Who will stay alive in the fight to be the Regular League champion?


The last match of the day brings us an Italian derby. AC Milan and AS Roma are not at their best, both having lost all their fixtures in the previous matchday. Both teams started strongly but have dropped a lot of points over the course of the match and both are now in the danger zone close to disqualification. The Rossoneri are in fifth place, just two points clear of the Giallorossi, so the result could save one and almost definitely sink the other.
