Natus Vincere and Astralis Advance to FACEIT Major: London Grand Finals
Natus Vincere and Astralis will move on to the FACEIT Major: London grand final on Sunday.
Natus Vincere went 2-0 against MIBR to secure its spot after crushing going 16-10 on Overpass and 16-5 on Dust2. The second competitor for the grand final was decided in a match between Astralis and Team Liquid. Astralis swept Team Liquid 2-0 in order to advance.
Astralis already made history in its match against MIBR in the Legends Stage as the first team to 16-0 an opponent at a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Major. The finals will begin at 1:10 p.m. ET.
A total of 24 CS:GO teams participated in the Major, but the competition is now down to two teams. Astralis will need to keep its momentum as one of the hottest teams in the CS:GO scene in order to have a chance at taking home the better share of the $1 million prize pool. It will be difficult as Natus Vincere was the first team to figure out Astralis at ESL One Cologne.
The CS:GO community couldn't ask for a better final as the No. 1 ranked team faces off against the No. 2 ranked team in the world on Sunday.
