Liquid beat FaZe; ENCE outplay NiP

Liquid have defeated FaZe 16-8 on Cache while ENCE beat NiP 16-7 on Nuke to kick off day two at BLAST Pro Series São Paulo.

The round three game between Liquid and FaZe took place on Cache where the T-sided North American squad picked up the pistol round victory thanks to Jake "Stewie2K" Yip's triple kill. Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski and Keith "NAF" Markovic's contributions in the second and third rounds made it 3-0 before FaZe responded in the fourth round.

EliGE prevented FaZe from starting a streak after he got two entry kills in the fifth round. Liquid extended their lead to 5-1 by securing a 3vs5 victory. FaZe had a 5vs2 advantage in the tenth round but Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken picked up the ace and the 1vs3 clutch to win the round (9-1).

Liquid were impressive against FaZe

To add insult to injury, Liquid won two consecutive 3vs5s as they increased the gap to double digits (11-1). FaZe managed to secure the final three rounds in the first half as Nikola "NiKo" Kovač and Håvard "rain" Nygaard made their presence felt.

Liquid lost three rounds in a row after winning the second half pistol round (12-7). Liquid won an eco in the 22nd round and went on to win the game 16-8.
