eMLS | Guerrero enters final week of Series One qualifying

Edgar Guerrero (RCTID Thiago) continues his quest to qualify for the 2021 eMLS season's first tournament on Tuesday, with a four-match slate the next step toward Series One's knockout round.

The top eight finishers after Wednesday night's matches will qualify for this weekend's knockout round, with Series One's champion to be decided over a set of two-legged matches on Saturday and Sunday nights.

Guerrero currently sits 20th out of 27 players in Major League Soccer's FIFA league through qualifying's first eight matches. While Thaigo was held to a 2-1-5 (W-D-L) record during last week's games, he is only six points back of eighth place - the phase's final qualifying spot.

As a precaution for COVID-19, all Series One games are taking place with competitors logging in remotely. All results not only count toward Series One's knockout round but go toward the league's overall standings, which help determine who qualifies for the season-ending eMLS Cup.

Guerrero will begin his Tuesday night set at 5:30 PM PT against Vancouver Whitecaps FC's Skill Shack, who went 4-1-2 last week. Thiago will then face Toronto FC's PhilB94 (3-2-2), Minnesota United FC's tokyorift (1-3-3) and defending eMLS Cup champion Adamou (New York Red Bulls, 5-2-0).

Wednesday's matches, beginning at 5:30 PM PT, will pair Guerrero with Atlanta United's ENZO (0-0-8) and LA Galaxy's GODFATHER (4-2-2).

All matches are played with the latest version of EA Sports' FIFA franchise, FIFA 21, on Sony PlayStation 4 consoles. You can follow the week's results on Major League Soccer's eMLS Twitter account and get updates on Guerrero's results at @TimbersFC.
