As we are heading towards the final matches of the group stage in the European region, let’s have a glance at teams’ current standings and results in Group A and Group B. Team Liquid is already in the playoffs, while Team Secret is yet to start in the competition.
Beyond Epic: Europe/CIS. Group A review
After Sunday’s matches, Group A has got two leaders – Team Nigma and Vikin.gg. OG is currently in 3rd place, having lost just one more map. B8 and Team Unique have already lost any chance for the playoffs. Meanwhile, Team Secret is yet to play the very first match in the group stage.
The past weekend was extremely successful for the up and coming Europeans – Vikin.gg. The team has defeated B8 on Saturday and managed to get a tough victory in a clash with OG. The Group A weekend loser was Dendi’s B8 which lost all two of their Saturday matches: B8 – Vikin.gg 0-2, B8 – OG 0-2.
In the upcoming matches, Team Secret will put all 3 Group A leaders to a test. Although we almost know who will advance to the playoffs, it is yet unclear which teams will go to the Upper Bracket. Beyond Epic: Europe/CIS, Group A final matches:

Beyond Epic: Europe/CIS. Group B review
Group B standings are led by Team Liquid which is already waiting for the Upper Bracket opponents. Liquid has won all 4 matches with a total score of 8-2 on maps. Second place is currently occupied by FlyToMoon, who lost to Liquid on Saturday, but defeated Virtus.pro 2-0. With 3-1 records and 9 points, FTM has no chance to miss the playoffs. Alliance is currently in third place with 6 points. Meanwhile, Team Empire, NiP and even Virtus.pro are still in competition for the playoffs.
The Group B weekend loser should be Virtus.pro who lost their Sunday matches to Alliance and FlyToMoon with the same score of 0-2. Meanwhile, Alliance has won the Sunday match 0-2 over Virtus.pro and now waiting for the rivals to say their word.
