Natus Vincere and FaZe Clan earned the final two bids to the semifinals of the ESL Pro League Season 17 on Friday in Saint Julian’s, Malta.

Natus Vincere swept Heroic 2-0 in quarterfinal action, while FaZe Clan went the distance with forZe and pulled out a 2-1 win in their quarterfinal match.

NaVi and FaZe will meet head-to-head in Saturday’s semifinals, with the winner advancing to Sunday’s grand final.

The $850,000 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament began on Feb. 22 with 32 teams divided into four groups for the triple-elimination opening round.

The group-stage winners moved into the quarterfinals, with the group runners-up landing in the Round of 12 as high seeds. The four third-place teams entered the Round of 16 as high seeds, and the four fourth-place teams went to the Round of 16 as low seeds.

On Friday, NaVi defeated Heroic 16-13 on Anubis and 16-8 on Inferno. Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev of Ukraine guided NaVi with 46 kills and a plsu-16 kills-to-deaths differential. Martin “stavn” Lund of Denmark had a team-high 42 kills for Heroic.

FaZe Clan opened with a 16-13 win on Inferno, but forZe countered with a 16-14 squeaker on Overpass. The decisive map was Mirage, where FaZe pulled away 16-6.

Three players carried FaZe: Robin “ropz” Kool of Estonia (67 kills, plus-23), Russel “Twistzz” Van Dulken of Canada (63 kills, plus-14) and Helvijs “broky” Saukants of Latvia (60 kills, plus-13). Russia’s Evgeny “r3salt” Frolov led forZe with 61 kills.
