Furia, Liquid wins again in ESL One: Road to Rio

Furia Esports and Team Liquid recorded their second consecutive wins in Group B on April 25th in ESL One: Road to Rio – North America.

Furia Esports scored a 2:0 victory over Bad News Bears, and Team Liquid won the match with a 2:0 victory over MIBR. Team Envy secured a 2:0 victory over Yeah Gaming in the other match on Saturday.

The ESL One: Rio Major, a $2 million Counter-Strike: Global Offensive event, was originally scheduled to take place in Rio de Janeiro from May 11th-24th, but was postponed to November 9th-22nd due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Teams will compete in the online tournaments for a total of $255,000, as well as regional ladder points awarded for berths at ESL One: Rio Major.

The North American event consists of 12 teams divided into two groups for round-robin play consisting of best-of-three games. The winner of each group advances to the semi-finals of the playoffs, with the runners-up and third-placed teams reaching the quarter-finals.

All playoff matches are best-of-three.

The North American champion will receive 400 Pro Tour points and $18,000 from the $60,000 prize pool. The runner-up will receive 285 Pro Tour points and $13,000 US.

The two groups will play alternately until May 3rd. The playoffs are expected to end on 10th May.
