Astralis crush G2, to playoffs
Astralis have booked their place in the PGL Major Krakow playoffs after beating G2 16-6 on Inferno.
The Frenchmen then picked up one more round and seemed ready to follow it up with another one, but a clean 1v3 clutch from Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth restored a three-round lead for his team and reset G2's economy. Back-to-back triple-kills from Richard "shox" Papillon helped G2 to reduce the deficit to 5-8, but Astralis would still claim the final two rounds of the half.
The second half began with the Danes winning the pistol round and the next two, despite G2 attempting a third-round force buy. Down 5-13, the French team picked up their sixth round of the game with an A execution, but Astralis hit back immediately, resetting their opponents once again before eventually locking down the map, 16-6, to secure a place in the playoffs.
