The sixth day of the ELEAGUE Major has drawn to a close, and with its culmination we now know the two teams that will feature in the prestigious Grand Final. We saw some great semifinals to determine our Grand Finalists. Without further ado, here are your scores for the second day of the playoffs from the ELEAGUE Major.


SK Gaming vs FaZe Clan - Quarterfinal

  • FaZe Clan 16-7 SK Gaming on Mirage
  • SK Gaming 16-3 FaZe Clan on Train
  • SK Gaming 16-5 FaZe Clan on Overpass

 

FaZe only looked talented on Mirage, as SK Gaming took the last two maps in dominant fashion. Those two maps saw FaZe claim only eight rounds in answer to SK’s 32.


Astralis vs Fnatic - Semifinal

  • Astralis 19-16 Fnatic on Cache
  • Astralis 16-5 Fnatic on NukeAstralis showed that this Major just might be their tournament, as they defeated one of the greatest Counter-Strike: Global Offensive duos of all time to progress to the Major Grand Final.

Virtus.pro vs SK Gaming - Semifinal

  • Virtus.pro 19-17 SK Gaming on Train
  • Virtus.pro 16-14 SK Gaming on Cobblestone

 

The Brazilians in SK Gaming gave their all against the Pole veterans in Virtus.pro, but couldn’t quite close the game down in their favor. Whether this was due to them using a stand-in, we don’t know. What we do know, however, is that the Grand Final will see Astralis and Virtus.pro battle each other for the title of Major champions.
