Jota reaches ePremier League Invitational semis

Diogo Jota has made it into the semi-finals of the inaugural ePremier League Invitational tournament after taking down Lys Mousset 5-2.

The Portuguese forward was in control throughout his quarter-final tie with the Sheffield United striker and put the finishing touches on his victory with an audacious chip from the edge of the box with the FIFA 20 version of himself.

Jota, one of the favourites for the title, will be back in action on Saturday 25th April where he will take on Burnley's Dwight McNeil, who defeated Neal Maupay of Brighton & Hove Albion in 1-0 in the quarter-final.

The tournament, streamed live on Wolves TV here and Wolves eSports Twitch here, has been created by Premier League players as a collective way of generating funds for the National Health Service and distributing them where they are needed most.

The prize fund is being donated to the #PlayersTogether initiative and will also continue to urge everyone to follow official advice by staying home and saving lives.


The opening two rounds took place between 21st and 23rd April and saw Jota join the likes of Raheem Sterling, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andre Gomes and Christian Atsu in the quarter finals.

Wolves fans will be able to watch the action throughout the week on Wolves TV, with the semi-finals and final taking centre stage from 3pm on Saturday.
