The last match of the opening round had the Brazilian underdogs of 9z going up against one of the favorites in ENCE. The Europeans have been looking on point coming into the Major so the Brazilians would have to bring their A-game.
The map choice fell upon Mirage and after losing the two initial rounds, 9z armed with AK-47s took a 4-2 lead on the T-side. From this point on "Spinx" took over control of the game and the young rifler excellently led his team back into the lead, and to a halftime scoreline of 9-6.
After the break, 9z did not have a chance as ENCE dominated from start to finish, only allowing the Brazilians to take a single round.
We still have total European dominance at the major.
