CSGO News: Monte, Eternal Fire, 9z, MOUZ advance at ESL Pro League 18


Monte, Eternal Fire, 9z Team and MOUZ opened the ESL Pro League Season 18 playoff stage with victories in the Round of 16 on Tuesday in Saint Julian’s, Malta.

Monte defeated Fnatic 2-1, Eternal Fire swept Astralis 2-0, 9z Team outlasted Virtus.pro 2-1 and MOUZ blanked FURIA Esports 2-0. The four losing teams were eliminated from the tournament.

The $850,000 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive event began with 32 teams broken up into four groups of eight. Group-stage winners advanced to the quarterfinals; runners-up advanced to the Round of 12 as the high seeds; third-place teams advanced to the Round of 16 as the high seeds; and fourth-place teams advanced to the Round of 16 as the low seeds.

The group stage is triple elimination with upper, middle and lower brackets. All matches are best-of-three until the grand final, which is best-of-five.
