The last time these two teams met earlier in the group stage, Gen.G surprised OG with a 2-0 win against them. The North-American team currently playing with two stand-ins now has to play in the last-chance qualifier to secure themselves a spot in the playoffs. This time around, OG was better prepared as they turned the score around from the last match and secured a comfortable 2-0 win.
The match started on Mirage and Mateusz “mantuu” Wilczewski showed everyone why OG picked Mirage. Although Gen.G had the better start on Mirage, OG bounced back with seven consecutive rounds, and finishing the half with a 9-6 lead. After switching to the CT-side, mantuu continued his masterclass and ended the map with 31 kills. Together with the rest of the squad they won every single round on the CT-side dominating Gen.G on the first map.
Train had a similar story to Mirage, with OG once again putting up a great defence to Gen.G. With 15 rounds played, OG had already won 13 of them. OGs defence was solid and Gen.G only managed four bomb plants and only converting one of them. Second half OG looked to finish it quickly as they secured themselves the pistol round. Second round of the second half Gen.G went all in and giving themselves a chance to mount a comeback, and they attempted to get themselves back into the match. Few teams have choked a 13-2 lead, and neither did OG securing themselves a spot in the playoffs with a 16-9 win on Train.
With Gen.G losing against OG they will now meet Envy in the last-chance qualifier on Sunday. The winner of the match will qualify for the playoffs together with the winner of Dignitas – forZe.
