Inferno — Natus Vincere [7:16] OG

The first pistol round went into the eu OG's asset, our guys answered by winning the force buy. However, the enemy repaid in the same manner and ended the force buy in their favor. Subsequently, the European team took the lead 4 : 1.

After losing the buy round, our five took a time-out. Unfortunately, a short break did not bring the desired results. In the ninth draw ua s1mple go an open frag, but the team was unable to properly seize the advantage: eu OG carried out an attack on B-plant under one flash nade, which caught our players by surprise. The end of the first half was behind ua NAVI, which allowed our guys to lose with a more acceptable score 5 : 10.

The second half started with another exchange of rounds: ua NAVI was stronger in the pistol, and eu OG proved to be better in the partial buy round. Perhaps one of the key points of the Inferno map was our team's win in the twenty-second round. 

However, the game could not be saved: the guys could not cope with the bad purchase of the opponent. As a result, eu OG got eight match points at their disposal and seized the opportunity 16:7.

Dust2 — Natus Vincere [16:13] OG

The pistol and both eco rounds ended in favor of our team. After winning the full buy round,  NAVI led the score 5 : 0.

The Europeans were able to interrupt the winning streak of  Natus Vincere in round eight. The success in the next round failed to provide eu OG with an good economy and losing one more round would leave the terrorists without money. The opponent never managed to get a lot of points in defense, and they lost the first half with the score 4 : 11.

To increase the chances of the comeback for the attacking side, the enemy had to win either the gun round or force buy. The opponent managed with this task by winning the pistol. Instead of full eco  NAVI decided to make force buy, but it did not bring a positive result. 

However, once the financial situation of  Natus Vincere stabilized, our players earned two points in a row. This outcome forced the Europeans to use timeout. The pause didn't help instantly to correct the situation on the map, but after one eco, eu OG earned four points.

In the twenty-sixth draw, the terrorists quickly went to the "long", made an open-frag, and through this side of the map occupied the plant side, which was successfully defended. Nevertheless, the European team could not achieve more than that. Thus,  NAVI defeated eu OG on Dust2 — 16 : 13.
