We beat Fnatic on their map, and we are 1 map away from the grand finale. Come enjoy the broadcast on FURIATV,” the recent tweet on the Twitter page reads.
The win over Nuke was fairly an easy one. They were on their way to the next round right from the first interval demolishing their opponent by 10-5. They maintained the momentum against Renegades on their T-side by exerting more pressure. They never allowed the Australians to get a chance of getting back into the game.
Snipers Henrique “HEN1” Teles and Andrei “arT” Piovesan were at their best to help FURI to a 16-9 win and combined for 50 frags.
How where they able to win despite Renegades were leading Mirage by 6-1 at the beginning of the game? Having starting to play well, FURIA brought on their A-game and won five consecutive rounds. The successive wins were crucial to saving the first half.
The Brazilians dominated the second half. They retain their dominance in the game after exploiting the A bombsite and set up a wall of smoke grenades. HEN1 was on top of his game when he again pulled 25 frags helping his team win the match 16-11.
Unpredictable FURIA continues to show that they are in form from the first semester. All thanks to HEN1 who is having a nice run surprisingly in this tournament.
They will be hoping to have the last laugh against Fnatic.
