Astralis dismantle Space Soldiers; Na`Vi overrun Renegades

Astralis and Natus Vincere have confirmed their favourite status at DreamHack Masters Marseille after breezing past Space Soldiers and Renegades, respectively.

The main stream match between Astralis and Space Soldiers began with a flawless CT pistol from the Danish team, who easily shut down the B site with a great boost. The Danish team kept their defense very tight going into the gun rounds, and the game quickly turned into a bloodbath.

A wasted 4v2 situation in the seventh round was the perfect example of the state of disarray Space Soldiers' players were in, even after calling a tactical pause. Engin "MAJ3R" Küpeli's triple-kill then earned his team their first round of the game, but Astralis replied immediately, resetting the Terrorists' economy.

Astralis were far too hot for Space Soldiers to handle

Until the end of the half, Astralis shut down any chances of Space Soldiers stringing rounds together or building up an economy, and took 13 rounds into the second half. After switching to the Terrorist side, Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander's men won the pistol with a quick A execution, and followed that up with two rounds to close out the game.

Way before that match even started, Natus Vincere had made light work of Renegades in a one-sided Inferno match. Curiously, it was the Australians who came out the brighter as they took a 3-0 lead, but after that Na`Vi clearly stole the show, with Denis "electronic" Sharipov and Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev doing most of the work for the team.

Up 11-4 at the break, the Ukrainian team did not give their opponents any time to breathe and won five rounds without response to seal an easy win that puts them through to Group C's winners' match, in which they will meet fnatic.
