NAVI tops Group C after clear 2-0 win against FaZe

A monster performance from Valeriy 'b1t' Vakhovskiy saw NAVI roll over FaZe.

The third group of ESL Pro League Season 18 ended with a fine display from Natus Vincere, who took out FaZe with a solid 2-0 win.

On Anubis Valeriy 'b1t' Vakhovskiy was a menace on both CT and T-side in a map where NAVI destroyed FaZe 16-4. On Nuke it was much more even, but still with NAVI in control. The Ukrainian Organization finally looks like a dangerous team again after some disappointing results lately. A 16-13 win on Nuke sends NAVI directly into the Quarter-Finals of ESL Pro League, where they join Vitality and ENCE.

FaZe will have to go through the second playoff round to qualify for the later stages of the tournament. Fnatic and 9z ended 3rd and 4th in the group. 9z took the long way through the first round of the Last Chance Stage to qualify. In the lower bracket of the tournament, they took out M80, Apeks, and 5yclone along the way to qualify for the playoffs.

Group C results:

1st: NAVI (Ready for quarter-finals)
2nd: FaZe (Ready for playoff-round 2)
3rd: Fnatic (Ready for playoff-round 1)
4th: 9z (Ready for playoff-round 1)
