DreamHack Masters Spring playoffs bracket set
The $250,000 tournament is set to culminate with the bracket stage kicking off on Friday.
The DreamHack Masters Spring playoffs bracket has been set following the conclusion of the last matches of the group stage on Sunday, which saw FURIA secure the last spot in the playoffs and Gambit and Heroic lock in first place in their respective groups for a place in the semi-finals.
In the opening round of the single-elimination bracket, G2 and Astralis will kick off the action on Friday in a matchup that has been rather one-sided as of late, with the Danes having won the last three encounters, all of which took place in December-January.
The second quarter-final clash between FURIA and Natus Vincere will follow on the same day in a rematch from the ESL Pro League Season 13 group stage, where the Brazilian side clinched their first-ever victory against Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev and company in late March.
The current top-two teams in the world, Gambit and Heroic, await a round ahead in the semi-finals, which will take place on Saturday. The Russian side will be up first in a match against the winner of G2-Astralis, before the Danes lock horns with one of FURIA and Natus Vincere.
The playoffs schedule of DreamHack Masters Spring looks as follows:
Friday, May 7 (Quarter-finals)
Saturday, May 8 (Semi-finals)
Sunday, May 9
16:00 Grand final (BO5)
