MOUZ and G2 both secured themselves a day off on Friday with their group final wins against BetBoom and ENCE in the group phase of IEM Sydney.
The two teams can instead join the rest of us as spectators to the two quarter-finals, where especially one of the matches stands out.
ENCE versus FaZe is usually a match worth seeing. ENCE has the upper hand with three victories in 2023 against Finn "karrigan" Andersen and his men. The last match between the two ended in a dramatic win for ENCE, who had to endure FIVE overtime series to win the semi-final at IEM Dallas. Will we get another brawl in Sydney?
The winner of the match will face MOUZ in the semi-final.
In the other quarter-final, we have BetBoom against Complexity. The Russians from BetBoom has shown great quality in Sydney with wins against Vitality and GamerLegion before losing the group final to MOUZ. Complexity is another team in good shape with only one defeat in their last seven matches. Both Michael "Grim" Wince and Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski has been performing at a high level in the tournament so far, and will have to tame BetBoom’s Aleksandr "KaiR0N-" Anashkin, if they want to succeed in the matchup.
The winner will face G2 in the semi-final.
The matches will be live on Friday morning from 07.30 (CEST).
