The winner secures a spot in the upper semi-finals, while the loser drops down to the lower bracket. Both teams face tough opponents in the next round, with the winner set to face either Natus Vincere or FORZE.
In terms of head-to-head stats, Astralis has the advantage, winning five out of their seven matches against Spirit. However, Spirit won their last encounter at PGL Antwerp Major 2022.
chopper and company from Spirit have struggled this season, failing to get out of the group at IEM Katowice 2023 and losing at CCT Central Europe Malta Finals 1. Astralis, on the other hand, has been successful, qualifying for the final tournament of BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023 and winning the CCT North Europe Series 3.
