The time has come! The highly-anticipated playoff stage at IEM Winter 2021 has arrived. The last six competitors from the $250.000 event are set to fight a thrilling battle for the 1st place, where G2 and Virtus.pro already has booked a spot in the semifinal, while NIP, GODSENT, Gambit and Vitality meet in two respective quarterfinals this Sunday.
The first match will be between NIP and the Brazilian underdogs from GODSENT, who most surprisingly secured a playoff spot after defeating both Heroic and BIG on the way. Again today, it will require a lot for Epitacio "TACO" de Melo and his gang if they wish to advance, especially with NIP's superstar AWPer Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz having himself a great tournament so far.
The quarterfinal matchup will go live at 16:00 (CET) and can be seen right here on Pley.
