NiP reverse sweep Vitality, to IEM Fall Europe final

One step closer to the trophy.

First semifinal of the event.

As both teams had already guaranteed themselves a berth at PGL Major Stockholm, it was time for Ninjas in Pyjamas and Team Vitality to find out who was going to the IEM Fall Europe final.

Starting on the Scandinavian team’s choice of Nuke, Team Vitality ran NiP out of the server on their defence, picking up a seven rounds lead before converting it into a “16-5” map victory. Overpass, however, backfired, as Ninjas in Pyjamas won both halves for a combined “16-9”, forcing a decider map. Inferno, one of the best maps in the both teams’ pools, did not deliver anything competitive either, as Ninjas in Pyjamas absolutely steamrolled Team Vitality “16-2”, winning the series “2-1” and advancing to the grand final.

Both NiP and Vitality are now waiting for the outcome of the ENCE Esports-Astralis series to find out who they are going to face tomorrow in the final and the third place match respectively.
