The European Invitational started yesterday putting together all the TOP teams of Europe. The Esportia teams, Barça esports and RCDeSports, ended the first round with different results.

The tournament is formed by 11 invited teams – all 10 teams of the RLCS (Rocket league Championship Series) and 1 special guest from the Middle East, SandRock Gaming – plus 5 qualified RLRS teams, 16 participants in total.

After a very complicated and tight first match, Barça esports ended up losing 1-3 against Veloce esports.
The culés had a better start, kicking strong and hard on the first set, but the english team made its comeback winning the following 3 matches.
However, Barça esports has two more opportunities to qualify for the next round.
The next step is to beat Servette Geneva today at 8pm (https://www.twitch.tv/johnnyboi_i). This is expected to be an easier match for the blaugranas.

For RCD Espanyol things went differently, the pericos had to face Triple Trouble for the third time in 3 weeks, managing their 3rd victory in a row against the former Barça player, Bluey.

RCDeSports went to overtime after starting with 3-2 in the first set. Triple Trouble managed to win the next two sets but Espanyol wouldn’t let them have it and imposed a 3-2 in the 5th set, gaining the Group D leadership.

The pericos are only one victory away to get their pass for the next round
and they will go for it next Tuesday, march 10th against Reciprocity, an RLCS team that will not go easy on them.

The pericos, a team managed by Esportia, beat the FC. Barcelona eSports at the semifinal, and ARG at the big final, winning the ESL Masters Spain for the first time after only 6 months competing in Rocket League.

Both FCB and ARG compete on the main european leagues RLCS and RLRS, respectively. 

Last saturday at Madrid Games Week, one of the main national events in the industry, Espanyol didn’t start as a favorite to win the title. 

The “pericos” came in the 4th position, and were up against the reigning champion and big favorite, FC Barcelona, a more experienced team with a bigger budget.

The semi-final was a BO5 and it started off very balanced, with connectivity problems for both sides. FCB won the first game by a very tight 3-2, but RCDE never stopped believing and turned it around on the second and third matches with a double 1-3. 

On the 4th game Barça was ahead again but a magical goal from captain Stake just 27 seconds before the end of the match brought back the hope to RCDE, and when there were only 9 seconds left on the clock Nachitow scored! 

It was the end of the dream for the culés, they failed to reclaim the title, and a fresh new beginning for Espanyol de Barcelona. 

But if the semi-final against FCB was an emotional rollercoaster, the BO7 final against ARG was a heart attack! 

The teams played all 7 matches with 4 overtime periods. Tied at 3-3, Espanyol took the last game with a total of 11 goal shots and and goal for each team member.  

Espanyol is the new official champion and Zamué was nominated MVP of the finals. 

This trophee is the result of a big team effort and a true champion attitude of never giving up no matter what. 

Stake (captain), Zamué (MVP), and Nachitow, along with the coach Arleyobi, have made history for RCD Espanyol de Barcelona.
