The first match that awaits us is against dk Astralis, which kicked off the performance at the tournament with 2 wins and 0 losses. As for our guys, yesterday they overcame ua Cloud9 (16: 7 - Mirage), but they couldn’t oppose fi ENCE (4: 16 - Mirage). After the game with dk Astralis will follow the meeting with the pt Giants. This team did not do well in the first two rounds: lost to ua Cloud9 (14: 16 - Dust2) and dk Astralis (7 : 16 - Nuke).

In the last round of the group stage the match ua NAVI - se NiP will take place. Like our top five, the Swedes started the tournament with a defeat, losing to dk Astralis (8: 16 - Dust2), but in the next match, they rehabilitated and beat fi ENCE (16: 5 - Nuke).

The last time ua NAVI and dk Astralis paths crossed at the BLAST Pro Series Miami, and back then the Danish players won (16: 7 - Inferno). With se NiP, the last meeting took place at the StarSeries S7, where our top five celebrated success (2: 1). As for the pt Giants, the Born to Win have not played with this team yet.

Dust2 — Natus Vincere [13:16] Astralis

The first segment of the match was behind dk Astralis: Danes won the pistol round and force buy. Further our boys decided to do unconventional decision and did another force buy. This decision went in favor of ua NAVI and brought the first point to the team. After winning the next round, players of ua Natus Vincere took the lead – 3 : 2.

After restoring the economy, team dk Astralis started the round capturing "long", where they made an open frag on ua Zeus, following with a move to an empty B-plant side. The next round came to the clutch 2 vs 2, the winners of which were the players of the Danish team.

One of the key moments of the first half of the meeting was destined to become the ninth round: in case of losing, one of the teams would face economic trouble. And the victory went to our five! In the twelfth round, ua Edward and ua s1mple took the B-plant side against 3 players of the team dk Astralis. Then our team managed to earn two more points and set the final score in the first half of the match 10: 5.

The second pistol round went to the dk Astralis. After winning the buy round, the Danish team reduced the difference in the score to one point– 9 : 10. Split-attack on point B brought the Born to Win the first point in the game on the T side. Before the start of the twenty-first round, ua NAVI took the tactical pause.

This was due to the fact that if it was a losing round, the counter-terrorists would run out of money. Unfortunately, the Danes did not let this happen. Subsequently, the score was 11: 11. The twenty-sixth round was to determine the outcome of the meeting. However, the Danes again made the best out of the unfavorable situation. In the next round to rescue dk Astralis came dk dupreeh, making an ace in the round. Thus, dk Astralis had two match points at its disposal, and they made it happen on the first one. The final score – 16 : 13.

Dust2 — Natus Vincere [16:4] Giants

The first pistol round in which ua Edward made an ace, and also the force buy and the eco round went to the side of ua Natus Vincere. T players managed to take plant side B, however, our players manage to retake and win the buy round as well.

 pt Giants could interrupt the winning streak of our team in the sixth round, but did not manage to retain their position with the planted bomb (4 vs 3). All thought, the Portuguese continued to put pressure on the B-plant. In the end, it paid off: the terrorists earned two points. The opponent did not manage to get a lot of points in the attack, and they lost the first half of the meeting with a score of 3 : 12.

In order to have hope for a comeback in the game for the defense side, the pt Giants had to win either in the pistol round or in the force buy. The Portuguese managed with their first task but immediately lost the force buy and scrapped all their previous efforts to nothing. As a result, ua NAVI beats pt Giants on Dust2 – 16 : 4.
