SK defeated fnatic 16-6 on Mirage in the last round of the Swiss group stage to grab their spot in ESL One Cologne quarter-finals.

Facing SK in the first match of the fifth round, fnatic went up 3-0 as Terrorists on the back of Robin "flusha" Rönnquist's triple in a 3v4 afterplant situation on the A bombsite. SK were on top of the first gunrounds, though, and equalized the score at 3-3.

The next four rounds were exchanged evenly, with Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo getting a triple in a 3v3 retake on B along the way, while fnatic made the best out of a half-buy, quickly taking over that same bombsite with just Tec-9's and armor.

FalleN played a pivotal part in SK's retakes in the first half

All of the remaining five rounds went the Brazilians' way, as SK clinched a comfortable 10-5 half with their AWPer and in-game leader putting up several more crucial kills.

SK picked up three more rounds after the following pistol round and proceeded to close things out quickly at 16-6, only conceding a round in which fnatic managed to kill the bomb planter with little time left.
