Aster.Aries and 496 Gaming continue to dominate the OMEGA League: Asia Divine Division tournament, sweeping their opponents Friday to finish unbeaten in round-robin play.

Aster.Aries (5-0 match record, 8-3 map record) swept third-place DeMonster (3-2, 4-6) in 35 and 41 minutes to lock up first place in Group B, while 496 Gaming (5-0, 10-2) did likewise in Group A by sweeping winless Cignal Ultra (0-5, 2-10) in 42 and 47 minutes.

Round-robin play concludes Saturday, but the top two seeds in each group are already locked up. When the first round of the upper-bracket playoffs begins next week, 496 will face For The Dream (4-1, 7-3) and Aster.Aries will take on Neon Esports (4-1, 9-3).

DeMonster clinched a spot in the lower bracket for finishing third in Group B. Adroit Esports (2-2, 5-6) can secure third place in Group A with a win Saturday against Reality Rift (1-3, 4-6).

Saturday's final round-robin match pits Blaze (1-3, 3-6) against EHOME.Immortal (1-3, 2-6).

The fourth- and fifth-place finishers in each group will square off for a spot in the lower bracket. The last-place teams -- Cignal Ultra in Group A and the disqualified LING ER in Group B -- were eliminated.

All matches in the $40,000 tournament are best-of-three until the best-of-five grand final, scheduled for Aug. 22.
