This week was the last two rounds of the regular season and all about the race for the finals, with the top 6 teams qualifying for the chance to win the title of 1FF Season One Champions
The top two teams skip straight to the Semi Finals and the 3rd and 4th place teams get home Qualifying Finals against 6th and 5th. 
Coming into the week, the big question was whether any of 7th-placed Brasil Amazonia, 8th-placed FC Angelenos or 9th-placed Bengaluru Phoenix could fight their way into the top 6.
League Table
Round 21 
Top-two Paris St Denis and Manhattan FC drew with Bottom-two Riyadh Stars and Naija United, while 3rd-place Bondi and 4th-placed South London United also drew, dealing a huge blow to each of their chances of getting into the top two. 
Tokyo Youth Club leapt up to 5th with a 1-0 win away in Argentina against Club Sportivo Palermo. Tokyo overtook Inter Nusantara who lost 3-1 away against FC Angelenos, the two teams were then separated only by goal difference, Nusantara just hanging on to 6th and the last finals spot. 
Bengaluru Phoenix and Brasil Amazonia also drew 1-1 - not much help to either team’s hopes of getting into the top 6.

Round 22 
Tokyo Youth Club started the round off in the best possible way, securing their finals place, and temporarily jumping up to 3rd with a come-from-behind win away in Nigeria. Naija led 2-1 until Rafael Hauffe scored his 14th goal of the season in the 80th minute. Ko Kato then set up Jorge Morerro for a 91st minute winner. 
In the next match, Bondi FC won a 6-goal thriller in Indonesia, ensuring Inter Nusantara were hanging on by a thread in 6th and needed three other results to go their way. 
Part one of that three-match miracle came in the next game and Riyadh Stars pulled out one of the performances of the season, winning 4-0 at home against FC Angelenos. This ended La Familia’s season, and pulled the Saudi team off the bottom of the table. 
Next up, South London United skipped over Tokyo Youth Club into 4th (and a home Qualifying Final) with a 3-1 win over Bengaluru Phoenix. 18-year old Kofi Opoku and Chris Bird both got on the score sheet in that one. That result ended the Phoenix Rising’s season, locking in 9th place. 
Brazil Amazonia went into their home game against table-topping Paris St Denis knowing that a draw would send them 6th and end Inter Nusantara’s season, but lost 2-0; Florian Grava scoring twice to break Brazilian hearts and ensure Paris St Denis finished on top. 
Inter Nusantara’s fans went wild online, reaching the finals with a near-miracle sequence of results. 
Manhattan FC wrapped up the round, and the regular season, with a 2-1 win over Club Sportivo Palermo. The result had no bearing on either team’s final position; Manhattan finished 2nd and Palermo 10th.

Best Stats 
  • Any hopes from Manhattan FC of an easy run into finals were dashed by Naija United in Round 21, who were in all-out attack mode in the big apple. Naija generated an equal-league-record 51 final third entries, led by Cristian Venditto with 14. They had 22 shots, six more than they had managed in any game this season, but Manhattan FC keeper Pablo Mancinelli kept them in the game, with 12 saves.
  • CF Brasil Amazônia shared the points with Bengaluru Phoenix in a bruising affair. Amazônia attempted 37 and completed 24 tackles for the game - both league records. Defensive midfielder Ruben Santos led from the front with five completed tackles to go with 45 completed passes and five final third entries.
  • It was a quiet week in the Golden Boot race with just one goal from the reigning top-three players combined. Top-two Jung Sang-Min (18) from Paris St-Denis FC and Dale Ramos (17) from Manhattan FC were both scoreless, while Inter Nusantara FC’s Bas Holsink scored once to go to 16 goals at the end of the regular season.
