The group stage in the American division has come to its logical conclusion. Team Liquid defeated Cloud9 in not the easiest battle and went to the playoffs. Overpass was difficult for both participants of the meeting and ended 19-16 in favor of Liquid. It was much easier for them on Vertigo, as a result of which the Americans beat C9 with a result of 16-11.
The group stage has also ended earlier in the European region. Vitality won the last match and advanced to the final stage of the championship.
Today we will have the opportunity to watch the first match of the final stage in America. In it, all the same Team Liquid and Chaos Esports Club will fight against each other. The latter, by the way, showed one of the best results in the past group stage.
