Two exciting lower semi-finals at IEM Beijing-Haidian is set:
North – Illuminar
K23 – Endpoint
North who is currently ranked #23 on HLTV’s world ranking, has to try to forget about their devastating loss from yesterday against Spirit. They will meet the Polish team Illuminar who surprisingly took down Nemiga in their previous match. North is strong favourites going into the match but then again if they make the same mistakes as they did yesterday against Spirit, a possible upset by Illuminar can be on the cards.
K23 nearly defeated the strong Germans side Sprout yesterday, but today they have to try to strike back when they meet Endpoint in the other semi-final. A matchup which on paper looks very close and will be a thrilling match to follow.
