  • 19:00 CET: ENCE vs. Team Vitality (Quarter-final 2)

Cloud9 and Team Vitality found themselves directly in the Quarter-finals after topping their respective groups this month. However, their competitors have played a lot more CS along the way and could be all warmed up for the best-of-three. MOUZ managed to get here by eliminating paiN gaming while ENCE took down the G2 juggernaut to progress.

On the other hand, NAVI and Outsiders clashed in the round of 12 with the former emerging victorious. With this win, NAVI managed to knock out two CIS teams from the tournament, silencing any doubt about their form. NAVI is set to face Heroic in Quarter-final 4.

Despite a heavy loss at the hands of Vitality, FaZe Clan has bounced back and looks to be in solid form. After throwing a 14-1 half on Ancient to Vitality, FaZe seemed to have showcased a weakness in their map pool. However, to Furia’s dismay, this hole seems to have been plugged after the game. FaZe easily dispatched of the Brazilian squad 2-0 to book a Quarter-final spot against Forze.

ESL Pro League Season 17 concludes on March 26, 2023, handing the winner the lion’s share of the $850,000 prize pool.
