The International 2017: Liquid and LGD.FY are still on the top-line
Team Liquid, LGD Gaming and LGD.FY secured a slot in the upper bracket of the Playoffs at The International 2017, following the end of the third day within a group stage.
With only two matches more before the end of the groups at TI7, Team Liquid retained the success of the previous day and, with 11-3, occupied the 1st place of group «А». They are closely followed by LGD Gaming, who has just a point fewer, however, there is still nothing that will stop the Chinese squad from taking a ticket to the upper bracket of Playoffs.
A destiny of two remaining places int the top-4 of group «А» will be decided in a battle among Evil Geniuses, TNC Pro Team, Team Secret and iG.Vitality. In their last matches EG will play against fnatic, Secret will meet Liquid, iG.Vitality will face Infamous and TNC will fight with LGD Gaming.
The CIS-squad Team Empire has finished their performance at the group stage. Empire, along with Resolut1on saved themselves from the elimination, securing the 7th place, and leaving behind Infamous and fnatic. Thus, Team Empire will surely play on KeyArena in Seattle, even though they will start from the lower bracket.
In turn, LGD.FY — is yet the one and only winner in the group «B». With 13 wins and a single defeat, the Chinese squad took the 1st line. For the remaining three tickets to the Playoffs through the upper bracket will fight five teams at a time: Virtus.pro, Newbee, OG, Invictus Gaming and Digital Chaos.
Meanwhile, Cloud9 and HellRaisers have a disastrous situation. Losing almost all matches, these squads have a minimal number of point, sitting on the bottom of the tournament table. One of them is still able to outscore Execration (4-10), but their chances are too slim.
Results of the group stage at The International 2017 after the 3rd day are looking as follows
