Astralis survive scare against ATK

The Danes had to fight their way back from an 11-4 deficit on the decider map of Inferno.

Astralis came extremely close to being knocked out of ESL Pro League as the first team in Group D. The Danes had to go through overtime on Inferno to secure the win against ATK.

The match started with Danish dominance on Overpass, but quickly the match turned sour for Astralis. On Mirage the T-side of the Danes failed to impress and gave ATK easy conditions to take down the map 16-8. On Inferno, it was again the T-side for Astralis that caused them problems. Only four rounds on the T-side left the Danes with a mountain to climb.

In a hectic ending to the match, Astralis managed to equalize the score at 15-15 after winning a 3vs5 situation in the last round. In overtime, the Danes smashed ATK, who had lost all momentum.

Astralis will continue their journey in the Last Chance Stage tomorrow against either Team Spirit or NAVI.

ATK - Astralis 1-2

MVP: Nicolai 'device' Reedtz - 1.57 rating / 41-17 K-D / 94.1 ADR
