fnatic overrun Space Soldiers
fnatic have secured their second win at ESL One Cologne after easing past Space Soldiers 16-3 on Mirage.
The first match of the day in Cologne featured a survival battle between fnatic and Space Soldiers as both teams were on the brink of elimination. The story about the first half was all about the Swedes' tight defence, which allowed them to cruise to an impressive 7-1 lead.
Engin "ngiN" Kor then gave Space Soldiers their second round of the game with two kills in a 1v3 after-plant. Even though fnatic enjoyed a considerable lead, most of the rounds had been very close, so money was still very low on their side. Still, the Swedish team managed to win the next round on a shoddy buy, which propelled them into a 13-2 lead, with Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson finishing the half on 20 kills thanks to some strong individual plays.
Space Soldiers then found a lifeline as they picked up the CT pistol, but fnatic won the following round after wreaking havoc on the Turkish defence with Tec9s. With no money in the bank, Space Soldiers were helpless to prevent fnatic from running away with the lead and locking down the map.
