fnatic beat Astralis to move into 2-1 pool
fnatic have secured their second victory in the ELEAGUE Major Boston's New Legends Stage after beating Astralis 16-8 on Mirage.
Starting out as Terrorists, Astralis kicked off the match with a well-planned A execution through mid, which Robin "flusha" Rönnquist and Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson countered with a 2v4 clutch to give fnatic the pistol round.
Astralis' third-round buy nearly bore fruits, but then a quad kill from Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson helped the Swedes further cement their lead. The 23-year-old would come up huge again shortly afterwards, resetting the Danes' economy after they had finally got their first round on the board.
The Danes responded with their second-round win in the hopes of finally finding a footing in the game, but fnatic remained in control and closed out the half with a dominant 12-3 lead.
fnatic then won their second pistol thanks to yet another quad-kill from KRIMZ, Astralis rallied back immediately, however, and strung a few rounds together to keep themselves in it. But then fnatic's offense came to life, with the Swedes winning three of the next four rounds to run out 16-8 winners.
