Despite losing his unbeaten streak to the start of the season, AussieFIFA will be the man to beat when he takes on Sydney FC’s substitute Joshawaa.
Joshawaa makes his third appearance this season and will have a tough task ahead of him in the first game of the night as AussieFIFA maintains one of the best defences in the league.
XBOX: AKP0FIFA vs Nfamous_Shadow8
The Roar's AKP0FIFA returns to the E-League looking to redeem Brisbane's winning streak after last rounds loss to Melbourne Victory.
His opponent, Nfamous Shadow, also suffered a tough loss to the hands of City’s Marcus Gomes. Falling 11-3 over the two legs, Nfamous will be looking to show everyone just how good his 3-5-2 formation can be, as well as claiming the three points for his Sydney side.
MATCH-UP TWO: Wellington Phoenix vs Newcastle Jets
PS4: oCenk vs Fweshest
oCenk plays Fweshest in the second match-up of the night and both players will be looking to help their sides to the three points.
Fweshest secured a 5-2 win against Central Coast’s Strawhat Camels which was enough to claim Newcastle’s first win of the season.
His opponent, oCenk, is coming off a narrow loss to N8 Jaz and will be hoping for a reversal of fortune come this week.
XBOX: N8 JustManUtd vs N8 Liz
Like his fellow teammate, Wellington’s JustManUtd also faced a tough loss and will be hoping to bounce back against Newcastle’s N8 Liz.
Liz managed a 2-2 draw last week as she faced Central Coast’s KyrenFIFA and will be looking to help claim back to back wins for the Newcastle side.
MATCH-UP THREE: Western Sydney Wanderers vs Melbourne City
PS4: N8 Jaz vs Saisanas
After a successful previous week which included a quarterfinal finish in Singapore and a win against Wellington’s JustManUtd, N8 Jaz will be looking to continue his good run of form as he takes on City’s Saisanas.
Saisanas will look to make things difficult for Jaz and despite falling to Sydney FC’s FUTWIZ Marko across the two legs, he has proven to be one of the top players in the league and will be hoping to get back to his winning ways.
XBOX: N8 OhNoAGoat vs Marcus Gomes
A match-up which promises to be very hotly contested, as OhNoAGoat takes on the formidable Marcus Gomes who is coming off the back of an astonishing 11-3 aggregate win.
Having narrowly beaten Wellington’s JustManUtd in the previous week, OhNoAGoat definitely has his work cut out for him if he wants to take down Marcus Gomes and claim the three points for his Western Sydney outfit.
MATCH-UP FOUR: Perth Glory vs Melbourne Victory
PS4: StridentCorn vs EpicFlyer010
In a match-up that sees the top of the table Melbourne Victory taking on the last placed Perth Glory, Glory’s StridentCorn may be set for another tough day at the office as he faces Victory’s EpicFlyer010
Ben Carter aka EpicFlyer010 makes his E-League debut in Round 5 and looks to retain his side's solid performances with teammate Mo dominating his fixtures.
Despite being winless, StridentCorn has definitely not let that stop him from putting together determined performances so far, and he will be hoping for an inspiring first win of the season come Thursday.
XBOX: N8 Highfly vs Mouad Zwed
Mouad Zwed impressed again last week, putting seven more goals past Brisbane debutant Ozilla FIFA.
His opponent is N8 Highfly who is also no stranger to scoring goals, having kept pace with the likes of Marcus Gomes in previous rounds. Defensively also prone to conceding goals, Highfly will have a tough game on his hands if he is to help his Perth Glory side claim their first win of the season and climb off the bottom of the ladder.
MATCH-UP FIVE: Central Coast Mariners vs Adelaide United
PS4: JesseD1996 vs RickTran
JesseD and RickTran will face each other in the last match-up of the night with both players looking to continue to build on some good form.
Despite missing last week’s action, JesseD managed to claim a win in his last outing against Sydney FC substitute Joshawaa and will be hoping for a similar turn of events this time around.
His opponent is also coming off an impressive week where he claimed a 3-1 win over Perth’s StridentCorn and will be hoping to again claim the three points for his Adelaide side.
XBOX: KyrenFIFA vs FUTWIZ Jamie
FUTWIZ Jamie makes his return from injury and takes on Central Coast’s KyrenFIFA who is coming off a tight 2-2 draw with Newcastle’s N8 Liz.
Despite not being able to be separated in his last match-up, Kyren can still be confident in his ability to perform given he has had impressive wins throughout the season against some tough opposition.
Meanwhile, Jamie will be hoping to make a positive return to the league and continue the recent good form of his Adelaide teammates, as they picked up all three points in the previous week. It won’t be an easy task for Jamie, but a win could see him kickstart the rest of his season allowing him to finish on a high note.
