FaZe Clan survive against EG, "2-0" in EPL

Not a very convincing victory.

A hard fought battle.

An iconic clash between two North American organisations closed the second round of play in group C during ESL Pro League Season 14. FaZe Clan, who took down mousesports in the opener, faced off against Evil Geniuses, who lost in two maps to BIG and needed a win to stay on track for a top-3 finish.

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.
