VCT 2021 Masters Berlin: Playoffs Match 1: 17th September, 16:30 IST
Vision Strikers vs Gambit Esports
Vision Strikers are practically undefeated in this tournament up until this point. They had won both their matches 2-0 and have sailed through the group stage. For Gambit, after giving a 13-1 crushing defeat to their opponents in the first match, their performance has gone down as a result of which they were playing the decider match. Thankfully they won 2-0 after overtime in the second map. They need to remember that they are against an undefeated team so they need to be careful, plus of course, this is a single-elimination BO3.
VCT 2021 Masters Berlin: Playoffs Match 2: 17th September, 19:30 IST
G2 Esports vs KRU Esports
G2 has already made a statement in their previous game by sending a 2-0 defeat to Sentinels. G2 is one of the most feared teams in the tournament and has the European fans cheering for them. On the other hand, we have barely made it past the last match with scores of almost touching match points on both the maps. They will have to put their best game forward if they want to break a team that is in such good form.

100 Thieves vs Acend
The second seed from NA, 100T will be playing against team Acend. While 100T qualified by winning both their games, Acend had to really grind to make it into the playoffs. Another interesting thing is that both these teams are great at comebacks. In their previous games, both these teams lost their first maps against their respective opponents but managed to pull through from that point. This fact really makes things interesting and viewers will be waiting for twists and turn throughout the match.

Sentinels vs Team Envy
The only other team which is undefeated in this tournament. Team Envy is in great form and is landing all sorts of blows on their opponents. But now they are against one of the toughest opponents they could hope for. On the contrary, Sentinels have had a good tournament so far except for the defeat against G2 Esports where these guys were tamed and tortured. This might be a window of opportunity for Envy and if they are able to hit at the right spot, who knows, perhaps they could actually send Sentinels out. As for the Sentinels, they need to maintain their composure and play their natural game.
