FaZe Clan and Team Liquid advanced to the semifinals during Thursday’s action at the BLAST Premier Fall Finals in Copenhagen, Denmark.

FaZe swept Heroic in the Group A winners match and Liquid defeated Natus Vincere 2-1 in the Group B winners match.

In the Fall Finals, the teams were split into two groups for the double-elimination opening round. The group-stage winners advance to the playoff semifinals. The group-stage runners-up head to the quarterfinals as high seeds, while the ground-stage third-place teams move to the quarterfinals as low seeds.

The quarterfinals, semifinals and final are single elimination, and all matches throughout the event are best-of-three. The tournament runs through Sunday.

FaZe Clan defeated Heroic 16-14 on Ancient and 16-5 on Inferno. Helvijs “broky” Saukants registered a team-high 47 kills and a plus-13 kills/deaths differential for the winners.

Liquid sandwiched a 16-14 win on Inferno and a 16-7 decision on Mirage around a 16-12 loss to NAVI on Dust II. Nick “nitr0” Cannella paced Liquid with 65 kills and a plus-15 K/D differential.

Also Thursday, Ninjas in Pyjamas swept OG in a Group A elimination match and G2 Esports swept Fluxo in a Group B elimination match.
