In the Grand Final of the Virtual Bundesliga, Yannic Bederke from the FCA eSports team, powered by LEW, exceeded all expectations and took third place in Berlin.

The Augsburg player won against the well-known favourites and has now played his way to the top three FIFA players in Germany. Very few people had him on their screens, and in his group, he was considered an “underdog”. On Sunday evening, May 12th, Yannic “Yannic0109” was against all expectations in third place of the VBL Grand Final in Berlin.

Top performance in the group phase

The Augsburg eSportsman already met the big title favourites in the group phase. Especially Niklas “NRaseck 7” Raseck and Michael “MegaBit” Bittner were top contenders for the German eFootball Championship and were considered favourites in their group. However, Yannic Bederke was in first place in the Xbox group and stood out from his opponents with 13 out of a possible 15 points. Without a single defeat, Yannic marched into the Xbox round of the Grand Final.

Strong in the knockout phase

On Sunday Yannic could continue his winning streak. In the round of sixteen, he again faced his group opponent Niklas “NRaseck 7” Raseck. After a 0:0 draw in the first leg, the Augsburg player took the helm in the second leg and shot Niklas 4:2 out of the Grand Final. Also in the quarter-finals, Yannic won the match and ensured the early end of the tournament for Leon “blackarrow889” Aussieker. Yannic won the first and second leg 3:2. Yannic thus reached the semi-finals of the Grand Final, the so-called console final.

Third place for Yannic and FCA

The opponent was Michael “MegaBit” Bittner, the current German number one in FIFA19. Already at the meeting in the group phase, Yannic against Michael “MegaBit” Bittner could get a 2:2 draw, in the semi-final Yannic wanted to build on this performance.

The eSportler of the FCA almost created the sensation. In the first leg, Yannic even led 2-1 until shortly before the end, but conceded the late goal and had to be satisfied with the 2-2 draw. In the second leg, he lost against the clear favourite MegaBit, after he could not use three big chances to his advantage. Yannic Bederke finished the Grand Final after a 2-0 defeat in a fantastic third place.

Successful Grand Final

Overall, Yannic, who was perfectly coached by his brother Philipp throughout the tournament, not only excellently represented FC Augsburg at the Grand Final in Berlin, but also won 5,000 euros in prize money and can be proud of his performance, which none of the eSports experts believed he could achieve beforehand: “I didn’t expect to get this far. In the group, I would also have been satisfied with fourth or fifth place, just to be there on Sunday. I could never have counted in the first place. I’m very satisfied with the semi-final and third place overall.”
