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.

A scheduling conflict with DreamHack Masters Malmö will make it impossible for several top teams to compete in week two, including NRG, who won the week one bracket over Sharks.

AVANGAR are one victory away from qualifying for the ECS 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:

Europe:

Europe FaZe vs. Russia Espada
Germany BIG vs. Denmark Tricked
Poland Virtus.pro vs. Denmark Heroic
Other m1x vs. Kazakhstan AVANGAR

North America:

Brazil MIBR vs. Brazil ex-Luminosity
Brazil INTZ vs. United States ATK
Brazil Sharks vs. United States The Quest
United States Singularity vs. North America Cloud9
