After a horrendous start to the Legends Stage at IEM Rio, Team Liquid got their redemption with a win against Sprout.
The match was quickly over with Team Liquid firing on all cylinders. Most notable was the performance of EliGE, who looked like a man on a mission. The feeling was clearly, that Liquid had a point to prove after being demolished by MOUZ in the opening match.
A 13-2 lead at the break was converted to a 16-5 win. Team Liquid is now in the 1-1 pool of teams, while Sprout is only one loss away from elimination at IEM Rio.
