Blue Lock episode 3 preview images were finally revealed. The third episode will be titled “The “Zero” Soccer” and premiere on October 22nd, 2022.
The five lowest-ranking groups in the blue lock building will go against each other, and only two of them will be allowed to stay. However, due to the special rule that the player highest score will win unconditionally, things will get intense.
You can see the preview images below, along with the episode synopsis:
The first selection is a round-robin group match between five teams (V, W, X, Y, and Z) in the “Blue Lock” building, and only the top two teams will win. Kiyoshi and the others, Team Z, who are at the bottom of the rankings, will challenge Team X in the first match. However, due to the special rule that “only the one player who scores the most goals in the team can win unconditionally,” the match becomes chaotic, with enemies and allies mixing and competing for the ball. What turned the tide was Team X’s powerful striker Teruhide Ma Wolf.
