Well it’s been quite a tournament! We’ve seen 32 competitors battle it out over 128 matches over the course of 7 weeks, with this week seeing the grand final played between XBLakie_ChanX and YungJones in a winner takes all tie for the tournament (imaginary) trophy and the top prize of 150,000 FUT coins.
Read on to see how the tie played out.
First Leg – XBLakie_ChanX Vs YungJones
The first leg started off quite tight and if anything XBLakie_ChanX was playing the better football and creating the better chances. Against the run of play YungJones broke on about the half hour mark with a long ball to Aguero who coolly slotted home. Keeping things nice and interesting, XBLakie_ChanX managed to equalise just before half time with a similar goal, but this time scored by Xabi Alonso.
In the 52nd minute, Neymar played a lobbed through ball for YungJones which Aguero connected with and slotted home in off the post, with a reply coming on the 70 minute mark, as Oscar crossed from the right for XBLakie_ChanX and Samuel Eto’o jumped highest to beat YungJones’ defence and slot his header into the far corner.
Game on then, with 20 minutes left and the scores still level. It was looking like the match was going to end in deadlock when an 81st minute screamer from 25 yards out saw Aguero give YungJones the win in the first leg 3-2.
Second Leg – YungJones Vs XBLakie_ChanX
Sadly the second leg couldn’t quite live up to the drama of the first, and with YungJones holding the advantage, XBLakie_ChanX needed to win this one. He came out trying to attack but YungJones scored almost right from the off with a goal from Iniesta who then doubled his tally on 18 minutes to take the score in the 2nd leg to 2-0 to YungJones.
With the end result practically certain going into half time, Pedro scored another for YungJones on 67 minutes and Neymar slotted in yet another on 78 minutes to add insult to injury and take the 2nd leg score to 4-0.
Final aggregate score YungJones 7-2 XBLakie_ChanX
XBLakie_ChanX was kind enough to live-stream the final and a fair few of us watched it live. If you want to see his archived footage it’s here:
So congratulations must go out to YungJones who ended up winning every one of their 11 matches to win the competition overall and 150,000 FUT coins. Commiserations to XBLakie_ChanX on losing the final but 2nd place and 80,000 FUT coins is hardly a bad result!
So with this we put an end to what has been an excellent tournament overall. Thanks to everyone for taking part, and taking part so well. With so many matches played it’s a wonder there were so few hiccups and that’s all down to you guys. So, until the next competition (ideas welcomed) it’s ta ta for now.
