ESL One: Cologne 2018 is finally here and with their 32 team bracket format it’s looking like one of the best events of the entire year. FaZe Clan and Astralis sit at the top of their brackets as the two best teams, but there’s a number of qualified teams capable of winning it all.
Based on the past few events, it could come down to either Team Liquid, Na’Vi, or even SK Gaming. In total, six teams look capable of making a deep run. The standard names will be there, and in all likelihood, the team that wins it all has to beat Astralis or FaZe Clan. It’s unlikely the road to the finals doesn’t go through the juggernauts at the top of the bracket.
Potential matchups include mousesports against Na’vi, which was a huge set at ESL Pro League season seven. Team Liquid facing off against FaZe Clan could also make for some heart throbbing Counter-Strike. ESL One is one of the most intense weeks of CS:GO all year round. Make sure to catch the action here
