Xerxia Esports and Team Liquid: Who will qualify for the VCT Stage-1 Masters Reykjavik Playoffs tonight?

Xerxia Esports and Team Liquid will face each other in a best-of-three series tonight. The winner will secure their place in the Playoffs, while the loser has to earn a spot through the Lower Bracket.

Prediction

Judging by their firepower and experience, Team Liquid has a higher chance of winning the series tonight. The team came to the Reykjavik Masters after becoming even stronger tactically, and that was evident during their performance in yesterday's game against KRU Esports. The team will surely try to carry the momentum and secure a slot in the Playoffs.

However, Xerxia Esports has already surprised everyone by taking down North American giant OpTic Gaming in their first game in the VCT Stage-1 Masters Reykjavik. The team delivered a solid a performance last night, both tactically and mechanically. The Thai team seems determined to take down another giant tonight to make a statement in the competition.
