Vitality take down paiN to live another day at BLAST Spring Finals

The French/Danish roster had to use all three maps to secure a spot in the Quarter-Finals.

Everything was on the line for both Vitality and paiN in the first elimination match of BLAST Spring Finals.

It started out with a bang for Vitality, who quickly won paiN’s map pick of Nuke. A 16-3 win told the story of a one-sided map, where Mathieu 'ZywOo' Herbaut, Kévin 'misutaaa' Rabier, and Emil 'Magisk' Reif all performed on a very high level.

Strangely enough, there was much more spark in paiN on Dust2. Vitality’s map pick proved to be a very evenly fought affair. paiN took first half 8-7 on their CT side, and surprisingly enough, the Brazilians were able to follow through in the second half stealing away Vitality’s map pick. Star of the map was Rodrigo 'biguzera' Bittencourt, who took matters into his own hands ending Dust2 with an impressive 30-15 K-D.

Team Vitality quickly recovered on Overpass and finished off paiN in a similar fashion as Nuke leaving no chance for paiN to get anything going. This time it was Dan 'apEX' Madesclaire and Peter 'dupreeh' Rasmussen, who ran the show and secured Vitality a spot in the Quarter-Finals. Here they will face the loser of ENCE vs OG.
