As the second week of Stage 2 is over in Europe, it's time to have a look at this week's results!

ITB makes it to Europe League Deciders

Into the Breach (ITB) qualified for the Europe League Decider stage after the team's first regulation victory of the season — against KOI by 7-5. Luke "Kendrew" Kendrew was the best player for ITB with a SiegeGG rating of 1.53 and a perfect KOST against the Six Berlin Major champions.

After struggling to get positive results throughout Stage 1 as TT9 Esports, the roster finally sees the light at the end of the tunnel. Although the best they can do is a second place in Group A, securing a spot in the Europe League Deciders is already a huge step forward for the team.

So far, the Six Invitational 2019 champion Juhani "Kantoraketti" Toivonen has been ITB's best player in Stage 2 as he currently averages a SiegeGG rating of 1.16 and holds the best entry balance in the league, a 12-6 (+6).

With ITB having already played all of their four group-stage matches, the European team won't get back to action until Tuesday.

VP back on track after flawless victory began Europe League's second week of action with an overtime defeat against ITB on Clubhouse. After being 4-0 ahead, ITB surprisingly completed the comeback by getting an 8-6 win.

One day later, the Russian powerhouse got back on track with a flawless victory against WYLDE. With a SiegeGG rating of 1.77, Danila "dan" Dontsov was the best player in the match. Although the Russians clearly dominated the match, it's worth mentioning that the final two rounds were clutches.
