Astralis has secured a spot in the play-offs at IEM Katowice but has to battle for the semifinals spot on February 27 against Fnatic. 

Danny 'zonic' Sørensen, Head Coach, Astralis:

- Taking down Vitality was no easy task. That was pretty obvious from the Vertigo match. And Fnatic will not be any easier. They send us packing in the semifinal at DreamHack Masters Malmö in 2019 and gave us a run for our money at ESL Pro League Season 10.

- Fnatic is a tough opponent in this tournament so we have to go into full-focus mode and make sure that we don’t have any weaknesses they can exploit. We’re showing up to the match as prepared as possible.

"We’re showing up to the match as prepared as possible" - Danny 'zonic' Sørensen.


  • 3 out of the last 4 maps Astralis and Fnatic have met on have gone the full distance (30 rounds).
  • Fnatic is ranked #4 best team in the world. 
  • The winner of Thursday's match will go directly to semifinals, loser goes to quarterfinals.
