NiP reverse sweep G2, to BLAST Fall Finals
Great victory for the Scandinavian team.
A massive victory.
Starting on the NiP’s pick of Ancient, G2 Esports quickly ran away with the map, jumping to a “9-0” lead on the defence out of the gate. The Scandinavian team managed to reduce the deficit to five before the switch, but a clutch deagle eco victory by the European mix pushed their offence over the top, “16-7”. Going to Mirage, things looked grim for NiP once again, as G2 opened with a “7-2” lead, but then they turned out to win six in a row to take the narrow lead into half time. Teams traded blows in the beginning of the second half, as G2 looked to close the set after a “13-10”, but a solid run for Ninjas in Pyjamas forced a decider, “16-14”. A dejected G2 squad did not look par on Inferno, however, as NiP posted another “11-4” half and then finished the game at “16-9” with “device” leading the charge.
G2 Esports will now play the winner of the MIBR-BIG match, while Ninjas in Pyjamas are going to play for the first place in the group.
