Today's second match from IEM Rio features one of the outsiders for the title. But for Cloud9 it has been a challenging time in Rio. With losses against Fnatic and Grayhounds in the early stages of the tournament, Cloud9 has been dancing on the edge of elimination for a while now.
In the best-of-three format, Cloud9 seems to be back in shape. Two 2-0 wins against EG and Imperial have set them up with a final decider match against GamerLegion, who has taken the exact opposite route to the match. Early wins against 9z and Vitality gave them three match points to secure a Legends spot, but so far the best of three games have been anything but good for the mixed roster.
The two teams go head to head on the stage at Riocentro right after the OG - Vitality game is finished.
