16:00 CET Natus Vincere vs. Astralis - 1:2
On three exciting maps, the Danish favorite prevailed on Train. After a close win on Inferno, where NAVI almost made a comeback, the weakness of Astralis on Nuke was again visible. They had no chance on NAVI's pick and their sixth player Bubzkji was not convincing on his map either. The decider train was after a balanced first half, which Astralis could have won more clearly, nevertheless a clear victory for the Danes. Especially star player s1mple gave a rather weak performance by his standards today.
