ESL One Cologne third round match-ups drawn

ESL has revealed the match-ups for the third Swiss round of ESL One Cologne, which will send two teams packing already.

With the first day of ESL One Cologne now behind us, four teams are just one game away from qualifying for the playoffs, while four others are on the brink of elimination.

Day two of the $250,000 tournament will begin with a mouth-watering clash between Virtus.pro and Heroic, with TYLOO and Cloud9 facing off for survival in the following match.

mousesports will take on NiP for a spot in the playoffs

The first clash between teams with a 2-0 record will pit NiP against mousesports. That means that at least one North American representative will make it to the playoffs as Liquid and OpTic will face each other in the final encounter of the day.

Below you can find the match-ups for the third round of ESL One Cologne:

12:00 Denmark Heroic vs. Poland Virtus.pro **
13:10 China TYLOO vs. United States Cloud9 **
14:20 Turkey Space Soldiers  vs. CIS Natus Vincere

If current mouz had to play nip with friberg like two weeks ago, i think mouz would've won. But NIP with REZ looks really strong and its gonna be a tough match either way

You should not bet dude you re so bad in this shit ........ wins : heroic , tyloo ,ss ,north (sorry sk fangays), g2 ,fnatic, mouse
2017-07-05 01:21
I bet that SS is done for the event. They overpreformed in one game, but now the luck is over.

Solid picks tbh. Everyone will have one or two different. For me I see SS and OpTic picking up wins based on how they are rolling at this tournament.

Heroic eliminates Virtus.Pro, bye TaZ, welcome mouz. Cloud9 eliminates TyLoo. Space Soldiers upsets Na`Vi. SK breeses past North. G2 has tough times against Immortals but gets it in the end. fnatic defeats FaZe. NiP wins over mousesports. Liquid overcomes OpTic.

2017-07-05 05:13
VP might win vs. Heroic but I don't think they'll win the next one because it'll probably be North, SS, Navi, or Fnatic. In which case the only teams I think they have a decent to good chance of winning against is SS and Navi, depending on bans. North will crush them, fnatic knows them, and the other 1-1 teams, should they lose their 1st match, will fuck them with a huge dildo.

Liquid and Optic going to playoffs while we had both them getting trashed in the major qualifier. Swiss system is so random. I just hope it's not Optic, because it'll be a wasted spot. And if they lose now, they'll be probably be out in group stage.
2017-07-05 05:59
yea you are right but current optic shape looking good right now maybe they would go semi final or grand final who knows

What would actually happen if that occurred lol. Who would replace them? Would it be in the form of a qualifier? Online or offline?

2017-07-05 07:49
as i want it: Heroic < VP (cmon... heroic?!) Tyloo > C9 (somehow i enjoy aisian cs) SS > Navi (i just like kebap) North > SK (cuz fuck favelas, right?) Immortals > G2 (cuz fuck baguettes even more) Fnatic < Faze (FAZE UP BITCHES!) Nip > Mouz (yeah i'm an old-time nip-fangay from the days of spawn) Liquid < Optic (cuz green wall. period.) as it might happen: Heroic > VP (VP is so hard to predict. you never know what VP will turn up...) Tyloo < C9 (they play a good tourney individually. nothing and ska came up big) SS > Navi (Navi just isn't flowing. zeus was the problem KAPPA) North < SK (north has to step up. was a pain watching them play yesterday) Immortals < G2 (the lil braz are strong, no doubt. but you can't count out G2. may be a close one) Fnatic < Faze (the game against mouz wasn't their A-game. today things will be different. fnatic still not on top) Nip > mousesports (rookie battle. i like both, ropz and rez, they both play great. i also like the idea of a possible upset but i'll favor nip in this one) Liquid > Optic (optic may have some good games but for liquid it's about consistency...)
2017-07-05 09:17
NIP beating mouz would be the upset imo.

Call me crazy or fangay but I do believe that Fnatic can take on Faze. Allu always make some stupid mistakes. And Nip Vs Mouz is more like 50 / 50. Can ReZ beat Ropz? Can F0rest play as well as his last game?
