Match-ups for New Legends Stage day three determined

The match-ups for the third day of the StarLadder Major's New Legends Stage have been decided, with two teams standing on the verge of elimination.

The 2-0 pool will feature two clashes between teams separated by just two places in the rankings as Astralis will lock horns with NRG, who pulled off the biggest upset of this stage so far by defeating Liquid, while ENCE will take on Vitality.

In the 1-1 pool, the only clash between two top 10 sides will see Natus Vincere go up against mousesports. With Liquid having what should be an easy task against AVANGAR, the spotlight will also be on the clash between FaZe and CR4ZY - pitting cousins Nikola "NiKo" Kovač and Nemanja "huNter-" Kovač against each other.

NiP will fight for their tournament lives against North

The first elimination series of this stage will see the losing sides drop out of the Major cycle, forcing them to go through the Minors once again. With so much on the line, tension will certainly increase when NiP face North, and Renegades take on DreamEaters.

Below you can find the match-ups for the third day of the New Legends Stage:

2-0 pool:

Denmark Astralis vs. United States NRG
Finland ENCE vs. France Vitality

1-1 pool:

United States Liquid vs. Kazakhstan AVANGAR

2019-08-29 22:11
2-0 Pool looking very interesting. If NRG manages win, look out. If Liquid doesn't beat Avangar, their path ahead looks bad. They should. Faze/CR4ZY match looks intriguing. Many questions will be answered. Interested to see who wins between NaVi and Mouz. I have no idea. G2 should beat MiBR 0-2 Pool is a toss-up. I'd favor Renegades over DreamEaters. Nip/North a true toss--up.

Well i hope so. The way they played against astralis was painful to watch.

It was, but they started out well. Letting Astralis in was their mistake. Well, agreeing to play Astralis on Nuke was their mistake.

you think nip has a chance? seems unlikely to me.
2019-08-29 22:46
True, they have looked quite average for some time now. However, I'm stubborn in thinking they can manage it against North. This and my NRG prediction may be unlikely, but sometimes you have to roll the dice. North may have the edge, but I'm hoping NiP finds enough to squeak one out.

Wow, 1-1 pool has some slick matches. Mouz vs NaVi. FaZe vs Cr4zy AKA NiKo vs Hunter.
2019-08-30 00:30
So here's my bets (I don't care if you don't care) -Astralis will 2-0 NRG. Really nothing to say here, it's Astralis vs a team that is playing a major for their first time. -Vitality will 2-1 ENCE. This match doesn't really matters to me, cause I put ENCE 3-0 in Pick'Ems. If Vitality wins, it will be money. If not, Diamond. -Team Liquid will 1-0 Avangar. Do I have to say something -Faze will 1-0 Crazy. I would really bet for Crazy but I think FaZe will win because they have a lot more experience in important matches. -Na'Vi vs Mouse. I'm not betting here because I have no idea of what's going to happen (I hope Navi wins :D) -G2 1-0 MiBR. Ignoring those stupid "throwing" jokes, I think G2 have better individuals (I mean, BOT zews and BOT Lucas vs Shox and KennyS, who would win?) -Dream Eaters vs Renegades, again no bets, no clue about what's going to happen. -North 2-1 NIP. I'm a NIP fan but I even put them 0-3 in pick ems, no chance at all. I would bet 2-0 if I wasnt a fan. Let's see tomorrow boys. What a pocket-fucking major!
