After making their way through the Mountain Dew League last year, Ghost Gaming have successfully defended their Pro League spot in the Pro League relegation at the MDL Global Challenge event in New York earlier this year. Almost six weeks into season 7 of the longest-running professional CS:GO league, they might find themselves in a similar position again. The North American team currently sits at 11th place with 4 wins and 12 losses - two and four points respectively away from their direct competitors compLexity and Splyce.
Hence tonight's matchup against last placed Team Dignitas might decide their survival in Pro League. Six points today would boost them just out of the relegation area before the final week. Splyce (17 points) only have one match remaining against the current Major Champions, Cloud9, which leaves them with little hope for additional points. CompLexity on the other hand still have three matches left, two of which are against SK Gaming and Team Liquid. So the final match between compLexity is likely to decide the relegation teams, but Ghost Gaming can seal a big deal by taking as many points as possible against Dignitas tonight, in order to take pressure off their shoulders for the match against compLexity.
