Facing a defeat, Astralis was still confident of a comeback as the second match on Inferno started. They did win the pistol round but EG held down the sites and restricted the opposition quite well.

Already in the lead, EG went on to pick up the pace as they slowly but surely crept their way towards the finish line and won by a score of ‘16-12’.

With this EG become the second team to make it through to the playoffs, and it was because of a big contribution by Brehze, who was the top fragger today against one of the most technically sound teams in the history of Counter-Strike.
