A game for another ticket to the Playoffs was held on Inferno. Being left behind at 0-2, Astralis, as it's usual for them, started winning after the first gun-round and soon secured a lead at 5-2. The tactical pause and failing clutch by Xyp9x didn't help G2 to change the alingment of powers on the map, so the Danes finished their performance for the T-side with a double advantage 10-5.
A victorious second pistol round let Astralis increase the gap up to 13-5. The attacks of G2 Esports happened to be way not that effective, as for the comeback, so the Frenchmen picked up only a single round. Astralis finished the match with 16-6 in their favor.
Astralis finished their performance within the group stage with 3-1, thus reaching the top-8 of the tournament. In turn, G2 Esports stops on the mark of 2-2. The Frenchmen will have to play in the last fifth round of PGL Major Krakow, where they won't have a room for mistake.
