BLAST Premier Fall Showdown 2021: Team Liquid beat 9z and advanced to the semifinals

Another match within the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown 2021 has come to an end. This time, Team Liquid won the fight against Team 9z. The teams played for reaching the semifinals of the qualifying tournament. The fight between Liquid and 9z took place on two maps and was more than just mediocre.

The first map was Nuke. There, from the very beginning, the mood was set not only for Nuke, but for the entire upcoming game. Team Liquid started on the defensive side and successfully repelled the 9z attack in 12 cases out of 15. After the transition, Team Liquid's opponents could not take a single round and as a result the map ended with a score of 16-3. It is noteworthy that Nuke was 9z's choice, and therefore nothing good was expected from Inferno in the performance of 9z Team. And so it happened, however, contrary to some expectations, the outsider of the fight was able to take 2 times more rounds than on the first map. The team managed to take a total of 6 rounds in the fight against Liquid and the meeting ended with a score of 16-6.

Team Liquid advanced to the next round, where Virtus.pro players are already waiting for them in order to fight for reaching the final of the competition. The winner of the upcoming fight will play in the final and try to take one of the two remaining invitations to BLAST Premier Fall Finals 2021 with a prize pool of $ 425,000.
