The first stage of the Brasileirao 2022 heads to its last week of action, which will be different from the rest as teams will play not two but three matches.

Black Dragons vs FURIA Esports

Two of the youngest rosters in the competition are finally facing off in a match with a deep storyline behind it. Brasileirão rookies and former Kids Team’s members Thiago “Handy” de Sá Ferreira and Felipe “nade” Sá will be in the same server, this time representing FURIA Esports and Black Dragons respectively. Current FURIA Esports and also former Kids Team member Diogo “Fntzy” Lima will also be in the match.

If such a scenario wasn’t enough, both rosters are in the battle to break into the league’s top four. Black Dragons currently sit in fifth with eight points, while FURIA Esports are in ninth with six.

Ninjas in Pyjamas vs Team oNe

Ninjas in Pyjamas season has been a dramatic story so far. After a winless streak of four matches, the team heads to the fourth week of action with just four points — not to mention that Gabriel “pino” Fernandes tested positive for COVID-19 about a week ago.

In such circumstances, every game counts. Ninjas in Pyjamas can’t afford to lose any more points if the team wants to compete in this stage’s Copa Elite Six. To complete the comeback, the Six Invitational 2021 champions must win as many points as possible and wait for the rest of the teams to drop points in the meantime.

Team oNe will be the ninjas’ first opponent. The golden roster currently sits at second with 13 points, and could lock a Copa Elite Six invitation by winning the match. For that reason, this game could have a substantial impact on the standings.

FaZe Clan vs MIBR

Heading to the final week being split by just two points, two of this year’s Six Invitational best four teams face off. Precisely, both rosters lost last week’s matches, results which put them in a delicate place in the standings.

With all w7m, Team oNe, and Team Liquid in much better places in the standings and looking in a better shape, the match between FaZe Clan and MIBR on Saturday could see one of the teams falling down the standings and inevitably missing out on the first Copa Elite Six of 2022.

Team oNe vs w7m esports

Everything leads us to think that both rosters will be in the regional qualifier. Leading Brazil’s table with 17 points, w7m esports are practically there. Meanwhile, Team oNe’s 13 points aren’t enough, but the situation isn’t critical and everyone expects the roster to at least get a couple of points. It would be a huge upset if the golden squad doesn’t make it.

However, the chance is there. The two main upsets of the stage in Brazil will face on Saturday in a game that will see five of this stage’s eight debutants on the very same server.

FaZe Clan vs Team Liquid

Finally, on Sunday, FaZe Clan and Team Liquid will face off in what’s one of the longest rivalries in Siege.

Both teams are in different realities. While Liquid’s momentum and place in the standings are nothing to worry about, FaZe Clan’s situation is way more critical. With this match being the last game of the season, we could be talking of a situation where a Team Liquid with nothing to play for faces a FaZe Clan that needs the points to compete in the Copa Elite Six. We could even see both teams playing for a spot in the top four, which would make this game even spicier.

Even though these are our main matches to follow, the truth is that every point could make a huge difference. The current difference between the fourth and the ninth is just three points. In other words, anything can happen.
