StarLadder Major quarter-finals determined
With the New Legends Stage now in the rearview mirror, the playoff bracket is now complete.
All eyes will be on the mouth-watering clash between Liquid and Astralis, the current No.1 and No.3 teams in the world. The two sides will do battle for the sixth time this year, with the North Americans having the better record (3-2 in matches, 6-5 in maps).
The last time the two teams faced each other was at the ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals, also in the quarter-final stage. Liquid came from behind to win the match 2-1 with a dominant performance from Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski, who would go on to be named the tournament's MVP.
On the other side of the bracket, ENCE and Vitality will certainly fancy their chances of reaching the semi-finals after being paired with the lowest-ranked sides of the playoff stage: the Finnish side will go up against Renegades, who bounced back from a 0-2 start, while the French giants will take on AVANGAR, who are making their first-ever appearance in the playoffs of a Major.
