OG edge past MOUZ in three-map thriller

The two very evenly matched teams went the distance in the last match of the day in Katowice.

In Group B of IEM Katowice MOUZ and OG went head to head in the second match of the group. Before the match, the bookmakers had predicted an all-even match with no favorite. A prediction that came through.

MOUZ kickstarted the match by winning both halves on OG’s map pick of Inferno. In-game leader Christopher 'dexter' Nong could enjoy his four teammates performing at a very high level on the map, which gave MOUZ a clear 16-9 win.

Moving on to Overpass everything seemed to play into MOUZ’s hands. They won the first half 8-7 on their T side, which normally would be a slam dunk to finish the match on the CT-sided map. But Nemanja 'nexa' Isaković wanted it different. The in-game leader stepped up and called a solid T side to force the match into Mirage.

The decider map finally gave us a very close battle between the two teams. In a spectacular ending, OG managed to equalize the score in the last moment of round 30, where Abdul 'degster' Gasanov with a Tec-9 gun took down two MOUZ players through the smoke to send the match to overtime.

Here MOUZ picked up three rounds on their CT side to put OG under maximum pressure, but all of a sudden both teams produced stellar defenses to deny any T rounds. Again it was degster who broke the deadlock with an excellent 1vs2 clutch to find the necessary rounds to win the match. The Russian AWPer ended Mirage with 41 kills to seal the win.

MOUZ will now have to take the long way through the lower bracket, while OG will face the winner of Complexity vs Heroic in the next match.

MOUZ - OG 1-2 | IEM Katowice

MVP: Abdul 'degster' Gasanov - 1.24 rating / 77-59 K-D / 83.8 ADR
