Finals day at Dota 2's SL Kiev Minor is upon us, with Alliance awaiting Ninjas In Pyjamas or Team Sirus in the grand finals.
The Alliance roster of miCKe, qojqva, Boxi, iNSaNiA and Taiga secured their place in with a 2-1 win over NIP in the upper bracket finals on Saturday - and guaranteed a place at the EPICENTER Major.
It means NIP face a rematch with Team Sirius in the lower-bracket finals after the two teams met in the opening matches in Group B.
That was won 2-1 by NIP's team of Ace, Fata, 33, Saksa and ppd and they are favourites at 1.45 to see off Sirius' all-Chinese roster again.
Sirius' roster of Sylar, ASD, InJuly, 天命 and HYM are somewhat the surprise package of the SL Kiev Minor and can be backed at 2.55 to win the match.
More importantly for the lower-bracket winners, victory secures a spot at the EPICENTER Major and 100 DPC points. The EPICENTER Major is due to start on June 22nd and is the final major of the DPC season ahead of TI9.
