The 16 teams at the ongoing Dota 2 tournament, ESL One Germany, being conducted on the Luxembourg server, are all set to resume hostilities in the second round of the group stages, with two matches lined up today.
Round 2 of the group stages will go on for three days, with eight best-of-three series played. Some of the much-anticipated ties from this round include Ninjas in Pyjamas taking on Alliance and Na'Vi playing against Liquid.
Apart from these matches, the other exciting series include OG facing off against ViKin.gg, while Team Secret will be up against Yellow Submarine, who have already defeated powerhouses Team Nigma.
Team Nigma will, in turn, be looking to bounce back against Tempo Esports. The team has played without its position 5 support and captain, Kuro "KuroKy" Salehi Takhasomi, for a while now, following an arm injury in August.
However, Miracle & Co will be looking to restore pride after the 2-0 defeat to Yellow Submarines, which came despite W33's Meepo pick. The Dota 2 giants will be hoping to pick up a comfortable win against Tempo Esports.
