The third day of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has drawn to a close in the majestic Spodek Arena in Katowice, Poland, and with it, the teams who will be competing in tomorrow’s semifinal are known. Today’s schedule consisted of two quarterfinals, and the scores were as follows.

Immortals vs. North

  • Immortals 16-14 North on Cache
  • North 19-15 Immortals on Overpass
  • Immortals 16-6 North on Cobblestone

Immortals wins the quarterfinal 2-1 and will progress onto the semifinals. North is eliminated.

Astralis vs. Na`Vi

  • Astralis 16-11 Na`Vi on Mirage
  • Astralis 16-2 Na`Vi on Nuke

Astralis wins the quarterfinal 2-0 and move onto the semifinals. Na`Vi is eliminated.

With the removal of Na`Vi and North from the tournament, we now have a semifinal lineup lacking some of the monsters many would have thought they’d host. The semifinals, which are going to be played in best-of-threes, will look like this tomorrow:

  • FaZe Clan vs. Immortals
  • Heroic vs. Astralis
