Astralis - Spirit headlines final Challengers Stage matchups

One win away from the Legends Stage

The initial game on Friday will see Heroic clash with Movistar Riders. The highest-ranked team still fighting for a Legends slot, Heroic, will have to step up and prove they are worthy of that spot after goint up 2-0 and then failing to overcome Copenhagen Flames and Entropiq in BO3s.

A derby between two German organizations BIG and MOUZ will follow, while the day will be closed out by AstralisSpirit, probably the most exciting series left to be played. The CIS side often showed promise but continues to underdeliver, while an underwhelming Astralis are yet to defeat a top 20 team at the event.

Round 5 schedule:

2-2 (BO3)
10:00 Denmark Heroic vs. Spain Movistar Riders
13:45 Germany BIG vs. Europe MOUZ
17:30 Denmark Astralis vs. Russia Spirit
