SK to SL I-League Invitational finals
SK Gaming have qualified for the SL I-League Invitational Finals after defeating CSGL 2-0 in the third-place decider of the online qualifiers.
With FlipSid3 Tactics and HellRaisers already through to the SL I-League Invitational Finals, a third European spot in Kiev was contested by the two group runners-up, SK Gaming and CSGL, in a best-of-three clash.
Still recovering from hip surgery, Michael "Friis" Jørgensen sat out the match and was replaced by Casper "cadiaN" Møller, who will be filling in for SK this weekend at the European Minor Championship.
