For now, the Esports Championship Series Season 8 finals have had no surprises. As a result, Astralis and Team Liquid were the first to secure a promotion to the semi-finals of the American event and today they will be able to calmly watch the continuation of the group’s struggle.

In the case of the Danes, however, it was not so far from the surprise, because the winners of the last three Majoras inaugurated had considerable problems with defeating Sharks Esports. At one point it was even thought that Brazilians would get a full set of points, but finally there was extra time, in which Astralis tipped the scales of victory on his side. A few hours later, however, Danny’s “wife” Sørensen’s charges cracked down on Fnatic, although while the first map was under their dictation, on the second the Swedes strongly resisted and died only at 14:16.

Liquid had far fewer problems. The players of the North American organization defeated Ninjas in Pajamas from the very beginning, giving their opponents only four points. We also watched the show of strength of Keith “NAFA” Markovic and the company during the match against Evil Geniuses – there on the first map the result was 16: 4 in favor of the horse team. It wasn’t until Dust2 that EG tried to take the glove and did a good job for a long time, but at the last moment he stumbled, losing 14:16 and as a result in the whole meeting 0:2.

Today we will meet the teams that will win the other two passes to the semi-finals. The closest to this achievement are Fnatic and Evil Geniuses, who only need one victory in a BO3 duel. At the moment, however, it is not known who they will face – in the game there are AVANGAR, MIBR, Ninjas in Pajamas and Sharks Esports.
