Astralis defeat G2, go 2-1
Astralis recorded a dominant win over G2 on Train(16-5) to go 2-1 and are now one win away from the ELEAGUE Major playoffs.
Richard "shox" Papillon played a crucial role in G2 picking up the pistol as he pushed ivy to gain information and allowed his team to stack the B bombsite, but Astralis replied with a force buy win straight away, and took the early lead.
Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander was the main man for Astralis and he proved that again in the 12th round when he managed to clutch a 1v2 from a very unlikely situation - after grabbing the bomb on T spawn with 17 seconds to go and with low HP.
Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro stopped Astralis' B site push two times in the row to get G2 to four rounds, but the Frenchmen were unable to close out another advantageous situation in the last round, finishing the half 11-4 down.
