fnatic to ESL Pro League grand final, Astralis and mousesports to play decider
fnatic clinched the top spot after beating Natus Vincere in a two-map series in the last round, which saw the Swedes strike back with a dominant defense on Inferno to turn around a 4-11 deficit, and close it out with a straight-forward victory on Nuke.
Meanwhile, Astralis completed a successful comeback from a 0-2 start in the second stage after a dominant display against mousesports in their fifth match, in which the Danish powerhouse only conceded four rounds across two maps.
The two results put Astralis, mousesports, and Natus Vincere in a three-way tie at a 3-2 record each.

The final standings of the second stage look as follows:
