Game 1: NiP vs. Heroic
The first match of the day will be an absolute top duel. While Heroic has been one of the world's top teams for several weeks, NiP had an excellent first tournament at Flashpoint 3. The Swedes around the Danish new signing dev1ce secured second place in the first RMR event and thus surprised some people. Between NiP and Heroic, the odds still clearly favor the team around IGL cadiaN.
Game 2: Spirit vs. Virtus.Pro
In the second Group B lower-bracket semifinal, the two CIS teams Spirit and Virtus.Pro will meet. The odds are very even in this duel. The last direct encounter between the two teams was only about a week ago at the EPIC League CIS 2021, which Virtus.Pro won clearly on the third map Overpass. Will Spirit succeed in taking revenge?
Game 3: Complexity vs. Gambit
The team around IGL blameF surprised yesterday in the duel with FunPlus Phoenix, but has no easier task this Saturday.
