The Swedes have been on form during the ESL Pro League after losing to Evil Geniuses in the opening round. After that result, Fnatic have won every single series, eliminating Heroic, MIBR, 100 Thieves, Team Liquid and now Na`Vi.
Fnatic won the series with a reverse sweep after Na`Vi originally took Inferno, Fnatic’s own map pick. On Inferno, Aleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev finished the round with 24 kills and also picking up some crucial rounds for Na`Vi, where he got three kills with the Desert Eagle.
After Inferno, Fnatic came back and tied the series, winning on Nuke 16 – 11, a map that Na`Vi have historically been good on. Denis “electronic” Sharipov and s1mple were the top-fraggers with 27 and 23 kills respectively, but Fnatic were better overall in terms of teamplay.
The crowd was pumped up for the last map, Overpass, but Fnatic took control early on. The Swedes won 16 – 6 thanks to a great T-side in the first half. Jesper “JW” Wecksell led the scoreboard with 21 kills and won an important 1v2 clutch to take Na`Vi’s momentum away.
It was unfortunate Na`Vi couldn’t deliver a good performance in the last map of the series, but overall it was a good result for the Russians compared to their performance a month ago. On the other hand, Fnatic have kept proving that they are serious contenders for any CS:GO Major tournament following the signings of Maikil “Golden” Selim and Robin “flusha” Rönnquist’s back in September.
Fnatic will face either Astralis or mousesports tomorrow at 9am CET. That’s it for the latest esports news from esportsnow today.
