Featured Match: Astralis vs Virtus.pro

DreamHack Las Vegas has given us some amazing games this year and the semifinals are sure to keep delivering, with an incredible match coming up between Astralis and Virtus.pro that will determine who plays for $200,000 and who fights it out for the $25,000 scraps of third place.

Both teams are feeling confident heading into the semifinals, with Astralis just finishing up a clean sweep of Ninjas in Pyjamas, taking Inferno 16-6 and Mirage 16-7.

On the other side, as we predicted yesterday Virtus.pro cleaned up mousesports in style, wiping them out 16-8 on Train and 16-14 on Mirage.

Virtus.pro will still be smarting from a 2:1 smackdown by Astralis at the finals of the ELEAGUE Major 2017 in January, where the Danes took train and overpass following an early VP victory on nuke to clinch the game and walk away with $500,000.

They’ll be keen to show that they’ve learned from Astralis’ tricks and are ready to turn the tables on them -- but will they succeed? Place your bets now!
