Astralis completes comeback to qualify for Legends Stage at PGL Stockholm

Despite losing both matches on Day 1, Astralis is ready for the next stage after a clear 2-0 win against Spirit.

They were the talk of the town after the three-time defending Major champions Astralis were on the verge of an early exit at the Stockholm Major. But since Day 1, Astralis is now 3-0 (and 6-0 in maps) after they dismantled Team Spirit in the last elimination match before the Legends Stage at the PGL Stockholm Major.

A very solid-looking Astralis roster quickly took control on Dust2 to set things straight right away. Despite it being Team Spirits map pick, it was the experienced Danish roster that managed to break down the offense from Spirit. With exception of Peter 'dupreeh' Rasmussen, the entire Astralis roster came out firing to shut down any hope for the Russians, who could see their map pick slip away. In-game leader Lukas 'gla1ve' Rossander was relentless on the map, where he went 25-14 in K-D!

Spirit now had to win Inferno to stay alive. A mission that seemed hopeless 10-3 down. But then Abdul 'degster' Gasanov woke up. The Russian sniper was both lethal with the AWP and rifle. Almost single-handedly he brought Spirit back into the match and completed the comeback at 10-10 with an unforgettable 1vs4 clutch.

With all the momentum going Spirit's way, it seemed unlikely, that Astralis could find their feet again. But Counter-Strike works in mysterious ways which came on full display in round 21, where Astralis finally broke the winning streak from Spirit and regained control of the match. It ended 16-12 in favor of the Danes, who is now ready for the Legends Stage, after having been 0-2 down. Team Spirit leaves the tournament early.
