In a tight match, Philip Billing's AFC Bournemouth fell to a 4-2 loss to Brighton & Hove Albion in the ePL Invitational tournament.
The last-16 clash pitted Billing against another strongly-fancied FIFA 20 player in Neal Maupay, the two teams controlling the sides they play for in the Premier League.
The Seagulls led 2-1 at the break despite Billing equalising with himself, and the Cherries drew level not long after the restart as Billing's intricate play around the box opened up another opportunity.
Into the final stages the tie was too close to call, only for Maupay to net a scuffed effort using former Bournemouth striker Glenn Murray - who netted all four of Maupay's goals - with just seven minutes to play, Brighton sealing the win with a fourth soon after.
Billing exits the competition having beaten Southampton's Angus Gunn 4-0 in his first game.
