Quarterfinals start today
Today the first upper-bracket quarterfinals will take place. In these matches DBL PONEY and Astralis, as well as BIG and mousesports will meet. After NiP won the supplementary match against Anonymo yesterday, they will meet HYENAS today and already play for elimination. Already eliminated from the tournament are OG, fnatic and FaZe.
Game 1: HYENAS vs. Anonymo
While the Danish team is making their debut at Flashpoint 3, Anonymo has been about to make the leap into the Tier 1 scene for a few months now and has already competed against some top teams. After the 14:16 defeat against NiP, the Polish lineup will go into the clash fully motivated and can be proud of the performance on the first matchday despite the chaos and disallowed victory. Between HYENAS and Anonymo, the odds clearly favor the Polish team and rightly so, given the clear defeat on the part of the Danes in the first round duel with FPX.
Game 2: DBL PONEY vs. Astralis
In the first quarterfinal duel of the event DBL PONEY and Astralis will meet. The odds clearly favor the Danish team in this match. DBL PONEY is a French lineup consisting of NBK-, bodyy, Lucky, Djoko and afro and caused a big surprise on the first matchday. In the duel with Vitality the team won against all expectations with 2:0 and also has nothing to lose in the duel with Astralis. Astralis was eliminated against G2 at DreamHack Masters Spring about two weeks ago, but showed better performances than expected after the departure of star player dev1ce. On the first matchday, the team won 2:0 against OG.
Game 3: BIG vs. mousesports
In the second quarterfinal, the German top team BIG will meet the mixed team of mousesports, who are currently performing better again. Four wins in the last five games, among others against FaZe and Complexity were very pleasing for the team around the new IGL dexter. BIG is currently struggling with form problems and was eliminated after only two games at DreamHack. In the first round duel against Complexity, however, the German full team showed a great performance and started with a win at Flashpoint. Between BIG and mousesports, the odds clearly favor mouz.
