It is the final group-stage game in the ongoing ECS T10 Barcelona 2020 tournament, but the semi-final lineup is not set yet. Catalunya CC battle it out against Falco CC in match 56 of the tournament, with everything to play for.
Catalunya CC have had a splendid run in the ECS this season. They have won five games in a row and are well-poised to make it to the knockouts. This game against Falco CC will be their second of the day.
If they win their first one, which is against Hira CC Sabadell, they will be through to the semi-finals. If that happens, this game would become a mere formality, where they will look to keep their winning momentum going.
However, if they don’t win against Hira CC Sabadell, the game against Falco CC would become a must-win clash. If Catalunya CC lose both their games and Pak Montcada CC win their game against Gracia CC, Pak Montcada CC will be through to the semi-finals.
Falco CC are at the top of the ECS table at the moment. They have won five of their six games so far and are looking well set to qualify for the semi-finals.
However, if they lose against Catalunya CC by a significant margin (assuming Catalunya CC win their game against Gracia CC) and Pak Montcada CC win their game as well, Falco CC will be eliminated. In other words, to stay alive in the ECS, they need to avoid a heavy defeat while a win will seal the top spot for them.
Considering the same, we are in for a mouth-watering finish to the group stage of the ECS T10 Barcelona 2020 tournament.
