Astralis claim final Legends Stage spot over Spirit

Astralis have survived their 0-2 scare in the Challenger Stage following a win over Spirit. After losing their opening BO1 matches, victories in the BO3s over paiN, GODSENT and now Spirit sees the Danes claim the final spot available in the Legends Stage.

Spirit managed to win all four pistol rounds and saw an impressive showing from Abdul “⁠degster⁠” Gasanov, but the star of the series was Lukas “⁠gla1ve⁠” Rossander, who particularly came alive on Dust 2 and ensured Astralis would be the team moving onto the next stage of the Major.

Returning IGL gla1ve led his side to success against Spirit

After losing the pistol, Astralis came out swinging on the CT side with Emil “⁠Magisk⁠” Reif and gla1ve each putting up strong performances. gla1ve and Philip “⁠Lucky⁠” Ewald took turns on the CT side, locking down multiple rounds with kills on the AWP. gla1ve carried his individual momentum into the second half despite Spirit once again winning the pistol. The Danes ran away with the map before Spirit were able to recover their map pick.

On Inferno, Spirit once again opened with the pistol round but Astralis replied with nine rounds straight as Peter “⁠dupreeh⁠” Rasmussen lit up the scoreboard after a quiet performance on Dust 2. gla1ve denied the Russian side a chance to string two rounds together after a 1v2 clutch on the B site but Spirit were able to put a pair of rounds together to close the half 10-5. The CIS side secured their fourth pistol in the series and saw the score tied up at 10-10 following a 1v3 from degster. Astralis then turned up the heat on Inferno and secured themselves a 16-12 victory.


With Astralis now moving on, the Challenger Stage concludes as seen below:
