FC Barcelona and FC Schalke 04 kicked off the eFootball.Pro IQONIQ Knockout Stage with Quarterfinal 1. While the Blaugrana club had concluded the Regular Season in 3rd place, and their opponents were the last team to qualify after coming in 6th, Barcelona was unable to advance past the Quarterfinals after a 0-3 loss and a 1-1 tie, which created an aggregate score in the German team’s favor. ALEX GRD was interviewed by Harry Channon following the competition.
ALEX GRD began the interview by admitting: “I’m completely disappointed with this performance. This whole season we beat Schalke 95% of the time, but it’s not the same when we play them in the matchdays. We missed many occasions in the two games, and we didn’t score.” He continued his analysis: “It’s very difficult because we have the potential to make it further. But good game to Schalke, they played with experience and force.”
The Blaugrana squad representative then addressed Barça fans one last time for the 2020-21 season: “Thanks to all of the Barcelona fans. I hope you’ve enjoyed our game style. We’re sorry that we didn’t win the title, but I hope we’ll be able to in the future.”
