Space Soldiers and Team Liquid have moved on in Group B's upper bracket at the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals after defeating Renegades and Grayhound, respectively.

The third main stream match of the day, on Inferno, began with Space Soldiers taking the pistol round and the subsequent anti-ecos for a quick 3-0 lead. After buying up, Renegades were immediately able to get a round on the board, courtesy of a triple-kill from Noah "Nifty" Francis in an A hold, and they followed that up with the next two rounds to level the score at 3-3.

The Turkish team, who are attending the event with Çağatay "DESPE" Sedef as a stand-in for Buğra "Calyx" Arkın, would not let Renegades take the lead, however, and put their foot down with a 1v2 clutch from Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli. That was the start of a great run from Space Soldiers, who would continue to play at a very high pace and took 11 rounds into the break despite a strong showing from Karlo "USTILO" Pivac, who ended the half with 17 kills.

Space Soldiers were too strong for Renegades

Renegades came from the break determined to turn things around and secured the opening three rounds to keep themselves in the game. But the landscape of the game changed dramatically once the game hit the gun rounds, with Space Soldiers winning five rounds without response to seal a comprehensive victory.

Meanwhile, on the secondary stream Liquid made light work of Grayhound, on Cache. After losing the first three rounds of the game, the Australian side were able to get a footing in the game and twice brought the deficit to a minimum, but then the North Americans ran away with the lead by taking the last six rounds of the half.

Up 11-4, Liquid piled even more misery on their opponents by winning four rounds straight to hit match point. It was only then that Grayhound managed to pick up a round as CTs, but it was all for naught as Nick "nitr0" Cannella's side would put the game to bed in the following round.
