FaZe pull off comeback vs. Liquid; Astralis beat Luminosity

FaZe and Astralis have joined HellRaisers at the top of Group A after edging past Liquid and Luminosity, respectively.

The big match of the third round of fixtures began with Liquid cruising to a pistol round win as FaZe got slaughtered on their way over to the B site. The Europeans' force-buy attempts failed to pay dividends and cost them dearly, with Liquid bringing the scoreline to 4-0.

FaZe then finally managed to break through the Liquid defense, and since some of the previous rounds had been very close, the North Americans found themselves with no money in the bank. Still, Finn "karrigan" Andersen's troops could not get full advantage of the situation, wasting a 4v2 advantage in the seventh round and losing an anti-eco round shortly afterwards.

With Liquid threatening to run away with the lead, Nikola "NiKo" Kovač and Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács pulled off a miraculous 2v5 clutch, the Bosnian opening up the A site with three kills before the Slovakian won a 1v2 with an AWP. That round sparked a great run from the Europeans, who brought the deficit to a respectable three rounds.

Now playing on the Terrorist side, Liquid further added to their lead by winning the pistol round and the corresponding anti-ecos. After buying up, FaZe kept their defense very tight and shut down any chances of the North Americans building up an economy or stringing rounds together, eventually equalising the score at 14-14.

Liquid still called a tactical pause in a bit to halt FaZe's momentum, but the Europeans remained in control of the game and won the final two rounds of regulation with ease.

Meanwhile, Astralis and Luminosity faced each other on Train, with the Brazilian side taking a 9-6 half-time lead after a sensational run that saw them win seven of the final eight rounds.

With Marcelo "chelo" Cespedes in stunning form, Luminosity further increased their lead by winning their CT pistol. However, that was followed by a demolition job of the Brazilians as Astralis kept the pace extremely high, dropping just one round before locking down the map.
