FaZe Clan survive against EG, "2-0" in EPL
Not a very convincing victory.
A hard fought battle.
Trading blows on Inferno, both teams were separated by only one round at the halftime, but EG upped their game after switching to defence. “Brehze” locking A site down gave Evil Geniuses enough fuel to close the map against a high-powered FaZe Clan offence, “16-13”. “karrigan”’s squad was not ready to go down, however, as Mirage was all about the European team, as they jumped to an “11-4” lead right out of the gate. EG, however, tried to mount a comeback, but fell short, “9-16”, as both teams moved to Dust2. Evil Geniuses, once again, looked in control, as they obtained a “8-4” lead, but FaZe Clan did not only reduce the deficit to one, but got to fourteen rounds with relative ease. EG nearly came back even after that, as they looked to tie the score at “14-13” but an eco win pushed FaZe Clan over the finish line, “16-13”, “2-1”.
Now an undefeated FaZe Clan will face off against Fnatic in the third round, while Evil Geniuses are going to clash against mousesports in a match between the winless teams.
