Giants upset NiP with a 16-4 victory on Nuke while ENCE beat Cloud9 16-11 on the same map in the third round of the group stage at BLAST Pro Series Madrid.

Cloud9 squared off against ENCE on Nuke and started the game on the CT-side. Jere "sergej" Salo picked up a triple kill to win the pistol round for ENCE who made it 3-0 after Jani "Aerial" Jussila's quad-kill in the third round.

ENCE now have six points

The Finnish team ended the first half with a three-round run, trailing 8-7 at halftime. RUSH stepped up to the plate in the second pistol round, winning it with a triple kill. Sami "xseveN" Laasanen responded two rounds later with a triple kill of his own to cut the deficit to two rounds (10-8).

Timothy "autimatic" Ta's 1vs2 in the 21st round prevented ENCE from taking the lead but the Finns persisted and won the following two rounds to lead 12-11. Aleksi "allu" Jalli's AWP ace in the 26th round gave ENCE four match points and they won the game with a 16-11 final scoreline.

Giants tier 1 They won as many bo3s on Blast in 2019 as Astralis, liquid and Navi combined. They easily destroy tier 2 teams like nip too.
