The final day of the Regular League is packed with exciting fixtures that will define the knockout stages that will be played on June 24th. Arsenal FC and FC Barcelona will try to hold on to the top two places in the league that automatically lead to the semifinals, while FC Bayern München and Manchester United, who face each other, will be on the lookout to try to get themselves into the Top 2. At the bottom of the table, AC Milan will be looking to stay in the competition by breaking into the top six places that qualify for the KO Stage, but the Rossoneri face the table-topping Gunners, who are not likely to drop many points. In addition, AS Roma and AS Monaco face FC Barcelona and FC Inter respectively, so depending on the outcome, the Rossoneri could see their chances of progressing to the quarterfinals diminished if the results are unfavorable to them.
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 final day of the Regular League begins with AS Roma - FC Barcelona. In the previous round, the Italians took 7 points against FC Inter, who were eliminated at the end of the Matchday. Thanks to that victory the Romans reached 23 points, jumping from sixth to fifth place, and moving away from the elimination zone, 7 points behind them. Knowing that AC Milan, in seventh position, face league leaders Arsenal FC, they may not need as many points to secure qualification, but it would not hurt them to get the necessary points against the blaugranas to go through the a priori easier side of the KO Stage. However, the Culer team, currently in second place, will not make it easy for them. After losing the direct confrontation with the Gunners in which they only got 3 points, the Catalans want to make amends and regain first place, so they will be looking to finish the Regular League with a full house of victories. Although they may not finish top of the table depending on Arsenal's points, they will at least secure the second place that will take them straight to the semifinals.
Sixth and last placed face each other in the second match of the day. The Nerazzurri are already out of mathematical qualification chances after picking up just one point against AS Roma, so they are not expected to put up much resistance against an AS Monaco side that needs points to secure a place in the quarterfinals. The Monegasques are on the brink of elimination, with 20 points and four points behind an AC Milan side already in the relegation zone. While the Rossoneri might not be expected to get many points against the leaders, the team captained by Usmakabyle should at least secure a win to feel more confident or 5 points to secure qualification altogether.
The Gunners snatched top spot from FC Barcelona last matchday after taking six points out of nine from the blaugranas in direct confrontation. Now, the Londoners are looking to keep that top spot to start the KO Stage from the semifinals. For their part, AC Milan took just one point against FC Bayern in the last match and that condemned them to a dangerous seventh place in the elimination zone, four points behind their closest place leading to the quarterfinals, set by AS Monaco in sixth place. All in all, an intense clash between the English and Italians is expected. The former are looking to win the Regular League gold medal; the latter, as the last team with a mathematical chance of qualification, have to give their all to try to get into the top six and earn a place in the quarters.
The last match of the Regular League pits two of the competition's historical teams in an evenly matched situation. The Germans are in third place with 32 points, after taking seven points from the Rossoneri last matchday. Just 3 points behind FC Barcelona in second place, the Bavarians will be looking to take as many points as possible to get into the top 2 and go straight through to the semifinals. On the other side, a fourth-placed Manchester United, just 3 points behind their rivals tomorrow and 6 points off the Top 2, will try to close the gap and, if the results align, which is difficult, enter the semifinals as runners-up.
