Group D, the last group of ESL Pro League Season 16, has also come to an end. Cloud9 finished first in the group, while FURIA Esports and Team Liquid were the other two teams that qualified for the playoffs.
Playoffs start tomorrow, September 27. We're going to watch some amazing matches. Let's take a look at the details of the matches and the schedule together.
ESL Pro League Season 16 Round of 12 schedule and predictions
Round of 12 matches of ESL Pro League Season 16 will be played from September 27 to September 28.
- FaZe Clan - Complexity (September 27 - 19:00 CEST)
We haven't forgotten Complexity's amazing performance in Group C. They advanced to the playoffs, leaving strong teams like Astralis and ENCE behind, but it seems like the end of the road for them. FaZe Clan is considered by many, myself included, to be the best team in CS:GO right now. They don't want to say goodbye to ESL Pro League Season 16 early. Moreover, they will probably win the tournament.
- Fnatic - Team Liquid (September 27 - 15:30 CEST)
Fnatic was also one of the surprise teams of the tournament. In Group A, teams such as Natus Vincere, Team Spirit and Ninjas in Pyjamas could not get ahead of Fnatic. On the other hand, Team Liquid is one of the best teams of recent times. It looks like the ESL Pro League adventure will be over for Fnatic.
- Heroic - Natus Vincere (September 28 - 19:00 CEST)
Although Heroic is one of the leading CS:GO teams, there is a slight decrease in performance compared to the old days with the departure of refrezh. NAVI is the favourite of the tournament after FaZe Clan. I think NAVI will win this match.
- FURIA Esports - Outsiders (September 28 - 15:30 CEST)
Here is the most anticipated match of Round of 12. FURIA Esports finished second in Group D. Outsiders were third in Group B, behind G2 Esports and FaZe Clan. The winner is hard to predict, but FURIA Esports seems to be one step ahead.

Which team will the Round of 12 winners match up against in the quarterfinals?
As you know, the winners of the groups have already secured their places in the quarterfinals.
The winner of FaZe Clan vs. Complexity will be matched against Cloud9. If FaZe Clan wins as I predicted, I think they will also win against Cloud9 in the quarterfinals.
MOUZ awaits the winner of the Fnatic and Team Liquid match in the quarterfinals. I think Team Liquid will advance to the semifinals, but it will be quite enjoyable to watch Team Liquid vs. MOUZ.
The winner of Heroic vs. NAVI will face G2 Esports. I think NAVI will advance to the semifinals.
The winner of FURIA Esports vs Outsiders will face Team Vitality. If you were to ask who will make it to the semifinals, I think it would be Team Vitality.
The real competition starts tomorrow. Be sure to follow Luckbox to keep up to date with what's happening in the playoff stage of ESL Pro League Season 16.
