NAVI and fnatic advance to ESL Pro League Season 16 playoffs
All three teams from Group A to continue their runs in the ESL Pro League Season 16 playoffs have been determined. Vitality, who secured an early spot in the quarterfinals of the tournament, have been joined by NAVI and fnatic.
The matches of the final round in Group A ended with the victories of Vitality, fnatic and NIP. Dan "apEX" Madesclaire's men deprived Team Spirit of chances for the playoffs (16:6 on Nuke and 16:10 on Vertigo), the William "mezii" Merriman-led squad was superior to Endpoint across both maps (16:8 on Ancient and 16:10 on Overpass), while the Ninjas managed to beat NAVI in a three-map affair but it was not quite enough, as they needed a 2:0 victory to get into the top 3 (16:8 on Inferno, 9:16 on Mirage and 16:11 on Overpass).
Group A final standings look as follows:
