UD Almería lose LaLiga FC Pro knockout round against champions

Gamer David Sánchez aka 'Dsaanchez_' was close to winning the match, but ended up losing in the round of 16 to Sevilla FC, who lifted the title

UD Almería fell in the round of 16 round of LaLiga FC Pro against champions Sevilla FC, who lifted the title. Gamer David Sánchez aka 'Dsaanchez_' had managed to place the Rojiblancos among the 16 best in the championship thanks to the good results obtained during the regular season and the Cup. However, the AYM Esports gamer —who represents UD Almeria following the agreement between the Club and this video game team— lost against 'Nicolas99FC,' favorite candidate to win the tournament as it ended up happening. 

The representative of UD Almería had numerous opportunities so that the score would have been different to the point of having the current Cup champions on the ropes. It was in the final moments when the match of the video game EA FC 24 –main sponsor of LaLiga– would be decided with a 3-2. 

'DSaanchez_' deserved much more and a good example of this was that the Sevillian player had against the Indálicos their most complicated battle, since then they comfortably beat FC Andorra (6-2), Cádiz CF (7-2) and Real Oviedo (5-2) to obtain the double. These statistics only go to prive that in the first round there was an early final between UD Almería and Sevilla FC. 

This was the closing of the campaign in LaLiga FC Pro with a day in which the best gamers from Spain coincided at the Stage Front Stadium in Barcelona—the stadium of the RCD Espanyol— looking to clinch the title in an evening with special guests such as DJMariio, Cacho, RobertPG or Joan Capdevilla, world champion with Spain, as well as musical artist Lit Killah.
