Na`Vi defeat G2 at ELEAGUE Premier

Natus Vincere pick up a win over G2, defeating the French side on Inferno 16-10 to move on to the winners match of ELEAGUE Group A.

G2 set themselves up for a great start on Inferno, winning the pistol by swarming Natus Vincere's defenses and converting the following two rounds without too many issues. After that, the Ukrainian side got on the board, but with no money saved, G2 was able to reset their opposition and put them right back on a force buy.

Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko's team was able to win that force, adding another force buy win two rounds later to make it 5-3. Natus Vincere equaled the score at 5-5 before Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt picked up a hat trick of kills on the A site to start a series of round wins for the French side.

Zeus's side put up a strong T side on Inferno

G2 finished the first half with a 9-6 lead, switching to the CT side three rounds ahead. An explosive start to the second pistol left the French side in a 2v3 situation which Kenny "kennyS" Schrub was close to resolving in his favor, but Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev secured the kill that allowed Natus Vincere to tie up the score at 9-9 shortly after.

The fight for banana went the way of G2 in the first buy round, but Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev's relentless aggression with the AWP yielded him a double kill in the next one, allowing his team to take over the site and secure the round easily.

The momentum was in their favor, and at 13-10, Natus Vincere went for a classic Zeus round, hitting the A bombsite with 15-20 seconds left. The trades went their way and they managed to put the bomb down in a 2v2, that was resolved in their favor by s1mple and Denis "seized" Kostin.

Natus Vincere held on to the lead and dictated the pace of the game, converting the final round with a B execute to make the score 16-10 and take the win.
