Liquid sends Astralis home from Antwerp Major, despite blameF's 40-bomb

Liquid defeated Astralis in the elimination game of the Challengers Stage of the PGL Major Antwerp 2022. The final score was 2:0 — Vertigo (16:14), Ancient (16:13).

Liquid had a hard time closing its own map pick. The Danes were right behind them all the time with Benjamin "blameF" Bremer dropping 40-bomb in regulation. But despite his best efforts, it was NAF who closed the first map after a 1v2 clutch.

The North Americans won the pistol and the following rounds on Ancient but were caught up by Astralis. With a close score, Danish CT-side seemed stronger to some point, but a series of clutches from nitr0 made the difference in the end.

Astralis dropped out of the major and will miss the main stage for the first time in their history. For Xyp9x, it will be the first time in his life. Liquid qualified for the Legends stage as one of the last seeds.

Bad News Eagles vs MIBR will be the next matchup of Antwerp Major. One of the teams will proceed to the Legends while another will be eliminated.
