Team Liquid new CS:GO champions at IEM Sydney

Posted on: May 06, 2019 By smartlaunch in News and trends,

Team Liquid are the new CS:GO champions at IEM Sydney 2019 after having defeated Fnatic in the grand finals 3-2 at the USD 250,000 event.

IEM Sydney is Team Liquid’s very first large tournament victory, as well as their second championship title of 2019 following a small win at iBuyPower Masters in January and several second-place finishes at BLAST Pro Series events (São Paulo and Miami).

Following their huge IEM Sydney 2019 win, Team Liquid’s next tournament will be at the DreamHack Masters Dallas 2019, where they’ll look to finally hoist a trophy in front of their home crowd. The same goes for Fnatic, who will want to keep up their current string of solid performances, and hopefully, help reach another high point with a title finish.

With each potential subsequent tournament win, Liquid move closer and closer to being a cerebral contender that can dethrone the Danes of Astralis, who aren’t getting the same playing time they accrued last year. Team Liquid and Astralis now find themselves tied in first place on the Intel Grand Slam Season 2 leader boards with one win apiece.
