ASM eSports take second in European eFootball

ASM eSports take second in European eFootball

By Cassandra Tanti - June 10, 2021

AS Monaco Esports have been crowned European runners-up after a superb run in the final stages of eFootball.Pro.

For the quarterfinal, AS Monaco Esports were pitted against Arsenal, which swung back and forth but managed to balance out as the two teams split the points during qualification. And that’s exactly what happened in the first game, which ended 2-2 thanks to goals from Kilzyou and Usmakabyle.

On the strength of their experience, it was the Monegasques who took the upper hand in the second leg with a comfortable victory of 2-0, allowing them to reach the semifinals.

In the semifinals, Imad Mihoudi’s men were up against AS Roma. Second in the table during the regular season, this game also promised to be very exciting. In the end, it turned out not to be, as the ASM trio showed great efficiency, both offensively and defensively.

Without ever looking like losing control, they won twice, each time by a score of 1-0. Both wins came thanks to goals from captain Usmakabyle, both in the first half.

Having qualified for the final, AS Monaco Esports faced off against Juventus, who had finished first in the regular season. At the start of the match, it was the Italians who took the lead with a goal scored in the 12th minute. The Red and Whites, full of confidence, came back in the second half thanks to a penalty scored by Kilzyou.

The two teams didn’t manage to create any separation between themselves and the match went into overtime. Unfortunately, Juventus gained the upper hand and won 3-1. Despite this defeat in the final, Monaco eSports once again showed that they are one of the best teams in Europe and Kilzyou, Lotfi and Usmakabyle can be proud of their magnificent run.
