That means we've just got a handful of matches left in this fantastic Winter Major, which has brought world-class Dota 2 gameplay to South America for the first time in the game's history.
The Upper Bracket Final match between Gaimin Gladiators and Team Liquid is due to begin at 18:00 GMT on March 4.
Gaimin Gladiators (1.75) vs Team Liquid (2.04)
Gaimin Gladiators have had a stunning run through the Playoffs so far, winning every single match with a final score of 2-0, with both Team Aster and Entity failing to keep up with the Gladiators. That Playoff performance matches their incredible Group Stage run, which ended with a score of four wins, three draws, and one loss. Gaimin Gladiators are one of the favourites to win this year's Winter Major, and their near-unstoppable run has shown no signs of slowing down.
But if any team has what it takes to defeat Gaimin Gladiators, it's Team Liquid. Gaimin's performance so far in this Major has been impressive, but Team Liquid's has been incredible to see. They have failed to lose even a single match since the tournament first kicked off on February 22, having cleared the Group Stage with an unbelievable record of six wins, two draws, and zero losses. They've been on an absolute tear through the Playoffs too, having claimed 2-0 victories over Talon Esports and Shopify Rebellion. Team Liquid's win streak has been incredible to watch, but does Gaimin Gladiators have what it takes to bring it to an end?
The odds are slightly in Gaimin Gladiators' favour here, at Team Liquid's 2.04.
