NiP reverse sweep Vitality, to IEM Fall Europe final
One step closer to the trophy.
First semifinal of the event.
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.
