Astralis to BLAST final after dismantling G2; NiP breeze past North

Astralis have secured their victory at BLAST Pro Series after easing past G2, while Ninjas in Pyjamas have earned their first win after thrashing North.

Astralis' hunt for a playoff berth continued with a blazing fast start against G2, who found themselves trailing their opponents 0-4 following some unsuccessful force buys. The French team's offence then came to life, earning them four of the next five rounds, but Astralis controlled the pace of the game for the remainder of the half, giving their opponents very little room to operate.

Astralis put in a convincing display against G2 to book a final spot

Down 4-11, G2 came close to winning an all-important pistol round after getting three kills early on, but Dennis "dennis" Edman saved the day with a fantastic 1v3 clutch. That round was a heavy blow to the French team's chances; Richard "shox" Papillon's men still tried to get back into the game, but with their economy in shambles, there was no stopping the Danes.

Meanwhile, NiP picked up their first victory in Copenhagen after dismantling home side North on Train. The IEM Oakland champions produced a near-flawless display on the CT side, which yielded a dominant 13-2 half-time lead, and they followed that up with three quick rounds on the Terrorist side to keep their hopes alive heading into the final round, in which they will face G2.
