Results on the penultimate day of play in Group C means all three playoff spots are locked in heading to the final day.
Sunday marks the final day of play in Group C where Players will face off against Liquid, with the winner securing second seed from the group ahead of the playoffs. Players are 4/7 to come out on top while Liquid are on offer at 5/4.
Players have secured their spot in the ESL Pro League Season 15 playoffs by defeating GODSENT, knocking the Brazilians out of the tournament and securing Liquid's spot in the process.
Vladislav "nafany" Gorshkov's Players were expected to comfortably dispatch GODSENT, who have struggled for much of the tournament, but a third map was required to split the teams.
GODSENT picked Inferno to begin the series and it required a herculean performance from Abay 'HObbit' Khasenov for Players to steal away the map, posting a 1.42 rating on the way to a narrow 16-14 map win.
Overpass was up next and GODSENT caused a surprise by pushing the series the distance, with nine rounds on their attacking side forcing a decider on Mirage. New recruit Henrique 'HEN1' Teles and his 1.45 rating were ultimately the catalyst for a third and final map.
It was there, however, where Players stretched their legs and showed their class, rattling off an insurmountable 13 rounds on their attacking side and ultimately winning the series with an effortless 16-3 victory.
Elsewhere in the group, Movistar Riders had already secured their spot in the playoffs the day prior but posted another dominant display in defeating BIG 2-0, moving the Germans to a disappointing 1-3 record.
Party Astronauts were also condemned to last place in the group thanks to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of fellow North American's Liquid.
