At first, Heroic somehow overestimated themselves while meeting the Mongols from The MongolZ. After failing Mirage, the Danes miraculously managed to win Overpass on the dopes and beat the obvious outsiders on the decider. Mirage was also a problem for the Danes in the match against the Ukrainians from Monte, but cadiaN and Co. somehow miraculously pulled off a comeback and managed to move on.
But luck ran out in the battle for the semifinals, and Heroic lost to ENCE. It is clear that over the weekend, this Danish team will seriously prepare for their most fundamental opponent. Still, it will be challenging to see the usual Heroic players.
Astralis team is pleasantly surprising! This team is the only one that made it to the playoffs from the play-in stage. And let's be honest, and not many people expected the Danes to reach the decisive stage of the legendary tournament in Cologne.
The Danes passed the play-in stage very confidently: they beat Team Liquid in BO1 and then beat Apeks. In the group stage, everything started not so well because the Danes lost to G2 and immediately fell into the loser's net without the right to make a mistake. But being one step away from elimination, Astralis players surprised and beat several tough opponents: Ninjas in Pyjamas, MOUZ, and even Natus Vincere.
You can see that Astralis is gaining momentum, but with the Danish derbies, it is still very difficult to hope for success.
