The Brazilian Major dream is still alive with FURIA just having sealed a prestigious ticket to the playoffs at IEM Rio Major. Something they did by beating the Germans from BIG in a progression match at the Legends Stage in front of a rowdy home crowd in Riocentro Arena.
FURIA is the second team to qualify for the Champions Stage after Cloud9 also managed to secure a spot earlier following their victory against Heroic.
