The final matches of Counter Strike’s ESL Pro League Season 16 group stages have completed and Group D gave fans no surprises.
Team Liquid and FURIA have progressed to the playoffs with the CIS Cloud 9 roster topping the group and paving their way to the quarterfinals. Team Liquid needed this win to cement their way into the playoffs and, fortunately for the North American squad, they were successful, beating Cloud 9 with a 2-0 scoreline.
Mareks “YEKINDAR” Gaļinskis had a monster showing on both maps, leading the charge alongside Keith “NAF” Markovic on Inferno, beating the CIS roster 16-10. The map featured some highlight reel clutches from the Latvian star, with an incredible one vs. three with 12 remaining HP setting the groundwork for the rest of Liquid’s T side.
