G2 and EnVyUs beat Brazilian duo
With both matches happening on Cobblestone, G2 and EnVyUs have picked up one more victory at the ESL Pro League Season 5 finals after beating SK and Immortals, respectively.
Although SK were aiming for a perfect run in Group A, G2 prompted their trial with a quick five-round lead – the Frenchmen were the first team to win a single round as Counter-Terrorists against the Brazilians in Dallas.
Despite winning the sixth round, SK lost another five in a row before securing one more. From that point, Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo's men were actually able to win another three and secure a 5-10 scoreline by the end of the first half.
With a nearly-flawless pistol round, the French team opened the way for a 13-5 lead. G2 had to win this game to keep their hopes up, which they confirmed with a 3v5 in the gun round to eventually reach match point. Their opponents then won another round, but G2 easily closed the map 16-6.

A quad-kill from Happy in the second pistol round got the French squad one step toward the victory, which they did with a crushing 16-2 victory.
