Today the two lower-bracket semifinals will take place, which will decide who will remain in the event. Already eliminated from the tournament are Evil Geniuses and FaZe, while Gambit and NAVI are qualified for the upper-final. The winners of today's matches will face each other in the lower-final on Saturday.
Game 1: NiP vs. BIG 3:30 p.m. (CET)
While NiP already lost on the first matchday against Complexity, BIG Clan won a little surprisingly in their opening duel against G2. For NiP, the first matchday was successful in the lower bracket against Evil Geniuses, while the German top team had to admit defeat in the upper bracket against NAVI. Between NiP and BIG, the odds slightly favor the Swedish lineup, but there is no real favorite in this duel.
Game 2: G2 vs. Complexity 6.30 p.m. (CET)
While G2 has been playing at the absolute top of the world for several weeks now, Complexity has not yet been able to really convince in the new year. In the current event, however, the team prevailed over NiP and was only narrowly defeated in yesterday's match against Gambit and thus the current number 1 of the EsportFire World Ranking. Even if the odds clearly favor the mixed team around IGL nexa between G2 and Complexity, the spectators can expect an exciting clash.
