Top Story: Field Narrows to Top Eight with Final Matches – Including Championship – Set for Sunday

The fifth major competitive event of the FIFA 19 calendar, the ELEAGUE FUT Champions Cup February, continued today from ELEAGUE Arena at Turner Studios in Atlanta, Georgia. At the outset, several PlayStation stars faced win-or-go-home ultimatums as that console's Swiss rounds concluded. Meanwhile, pros across both platforms faced a single-elimination gauntlet that narrowed the event's top 32 players down to the final eight, with the XBOX and PS4 semifinals set.  

Complete Day Two scores and standings are available here. Be sure to catch continued live coverage of the ELEAGUE FUT Champions Cup February when Day Three gets underway, beginning tomorrow at 10 a.m. ET across Twitch, B/R Live & ELEAGUE.com.

The world's fourth-ranked PS4 star Mohammed 'MoAuba' Harkous narrowly avoided Swiss round exits in two elimination matches to start Day Two.  First, MoAuba warded off a cinderella upset from 754th-ranked Mark Brian 'FUTWIZ Marko' Brijeski, and the German later overcame defending eMLS Cup Champion Cormac 'Doolsta' Dooley to secure a spot in the knockout round. MoAuba's run later ended with a dismissal in the round of 16 at the hands of world No. 1 Gonzalo Nicolas 'FCB NICOLAS99FC' Villalba.

Paulo Roberto Xavier de Brito 'pauloneto999I13' Neto made a strong case for ascending the PS4 Global Series Rankings from his current 380th spot, as he earned two swift upset victories in the single-elimination rounds. He will take on 26th-ranked Diogo Eurico Fidalgo 'tuga810I8' Pombo in tomorrow's console semifinals.

The venerable Musaed 'Rogue MSDossary' Al Dossary stumbled out of the gate, losing his first match, but returned to top-class form when he won three consecutive games to advance. The only player to win a major championship in the last three competitive FIFA seasons will attempt to add another trophy to his mantle tomorrow.
