Today is the 15th and penultimate matchday of Flashpoint 3. While Vitality and DBL PONEY fight for the seventh place in a rematch of the two French teams, G2 and NiP meet in the consolidations final. While mousesports already qualified for the grand final yesterday, G2 and NiP will play for the second spot today.
Game 1: Vitality vs. DBL PONEY
DBL PONEY managed arguably the biggest upset of the ongoing tournament in the first round against Vitality. The relatively newly formed team defeated the top team 2-0 on Inferno and Nuke. While Vitality was finally eliminated in the third round of the lower-bracket against Heroic, DBL PONEY met Astralis in the upper-bracket. The Frenchmen lost this duel with 0:2, but all in all they showed another great performance. After a win against Anonymo in the following match, the team was finally eliminated against BIG. Vitality won in the lower-bracket against OG and FunPlus Phoenix and still showed solid performances after the disappointing defeat on the first match day.
Game 2: G2 vs. NiP
In the evening match it comes to the absolute top duel of today. With G2 and NiP it comes to the rematch of the upper-bracket semifinals. At that time G2 won against NiP and entered the upper-final, which they lost against mousesports. The winner of this duel will secure the second place in the final. Both teams showed a great tournament so far and could definitely cause one or the other surprise. While G2 could finally find more consistency after the departure of kennyS, NiP is currently playing their debut tournament with new signing dev1ce. The viewers can expect an exciting duel between two top teams. The odds are very even between G2 and NiP.
