Match-ups for ECS week 2 revealed
FACEIT has announced the opening clashes for the second week of action in ECS Season 8.
The European bracket is headlined by week one winner AVANGAR, who are currently sitting third in the world rankings. With forZe, fnatic and Japaleno - the other three teams that finished in the money during week one - all missing out, the Kazakhstani side will need to win just one match to finish at the top in terms of prize winnings from the first two weeks and secure a spot at the LAN Finals.
Only two teams can leapfrog the North American high-fliers in the ECS money leaderboard: Sharks, if they manage to reach the final, and Cloud9, if they win the tournament. Any other outcome will see the week two winner take on Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz's side for a spot in Arlington.
Below you can find the match-ups for week two, which will run from September 30 through October 3:
