WEEK 8 PREVIEW
LAST WEEK’S BATTLE FOR PLAYOFF
The last week of group stages is upon us and this will be the only remaining chance for the teams to fight for the playoff spots and essentially for the LAN Finals happening in Prague in October.
If we take look at the current standings, we can see that even the 6th place has a shot at making the run for playoffs which means that everyone will bring their A-game next Monday and Tuesday.
We will start with Izako Boars against Team Unique, where the first-named is already locked for playoffs and LAN Finals as well, so they will be coming into the last match without any pressure, unlike their opponent which needs to get into playoffs to fight for the LAN Final spot. Team Unique only needs one map win here and from what we have seen they should be able to do just that.

The second Monday match will be between Ambush and Actina Pact. The Danes are one point better which can mean a lot in the end but whoever gets both maps here should feel somewhat safe.

The last gameday Tuesday starts with Me&TheBoys, the only team out of playoff contest, go against Nice Try where the latter named needs to win it all to have a fighting chance to advance into playoffs. The last match will see Nice Try again, this time challenging Eclot Lynx that needs to win both maps and with that see the Monday match between Ambush and Actina Pact go to 1-1 scoreline.
