PGL Major Stockholm Challengers Stage round 4 matchups set

Tournament play for the Challengers will move solely to best-of-three matches as teams are now only fighting to advance or to stave off elimination.

The second day of the Challengers Stage in Stockholm has come to a close, leaving twelve teams standing after FaZe and Copenhagen Flames advanced to the Legends Stage, and GODSENT and Sharks were eliminated.

The fourth round of matchups have now been determined, with teams set to exclusively play in best-of-three matches for the remainder of this Swiss stage as they will have everything to fight for, either to advance or to avoid elimination.

Virtus.pro will look to secure a Legends spot as they kick off day three

Kicking off the the progression matches is a tantalizing CIS clash between Spirit and Virtus.pro, who have traded series wins in their recent match-ups. Simultaneously, Heroic will take on Entropiq, while a battle between BIG and ENCE — the first time the two rosters will face off — will determine the fifth team to advance from the Challengers Stage.

The first elimination series, unfolding on the secondary stream, will pit Movistar Riders up against TYLOO, with the Spaniards heading into the match as the heavy favorites to advance to the 2-2 round.

The end of the day will bring about another two highlight matches, in which Christopher "⁠dexter⁠" Nong will take on his former teammates from Renegades, while Astralis continue their effort to recover from their disastrous 0-2 start in the tournament with a match against paiN.

Matches on the main stream will once again be played in the shared stage area, while the secondary stream match-ups will have teams continue to play from their practice rooms.

The match-ups for the fourth round of the Swiss stage are:

2-1 (BO3)
10:00 CIS Virtus.pro vs. Russia Spirit (Main stream)
10:00 Denmark Heroic vs. Russia Entropiq
13:45 Germany BIG vs. Europe ENCE (Main stream)

1-2 (BO3)
13:45 Spain Movistar Riders vs. China TYLOO
17:30 Europe MOUZ vs. Australia Renegades (Main stream)
17:30 Denmark Astralis vs. Brazil paiN

First of all its kinda expected to get easier opponents in 0-2 and 1-2. Second, i dont feel like Virtus.pro fans should complain about other teams getting easy opponents so far. Its not like Pain, Movistar or spirit have been looking that great. And even in the 2-0 group they probably got the easiest opponent out of Heroic, Cphf and Faze

Why is Astralis matched against the worst team again? Because of their seeding or something? Can someone from HLTV explain?

They use Buchholz seeding system for 4th and 5th round matches. Basically everyone gets a score based on the performance of opposing teams in matches already played. Then the highest seed plays against the lowest and so on (and since Astralis lost against CPH and Entropiq, who are now 3-0 and 2-1 they will have one of the highest seeds in 1-2 matches)

Wonder how much Astralis paid to get such easy matchup after going down 0-2. I guess coughing up some money to save some face. Less expensive than going out with 0-3.

I can't see Astralis qualifying for Legends. They'll be facing a top tier squad to escape elimination after they likely beat paiN, despite having back-to-back lucky match-ups to squeak by with.

Why two teams from round 3 low play against each other in round 4? I thought they have to face team from round 3 mid match losers. And remaining two teams from round 3 mid play against each other.
