Natus Vincere secured a spot in the Group C final at the BLAST Premier Spring Groups after a hard-fought three-map series win against G2 Esports (16-12, 10-13, 13-9).

Their decision to pick Overpass paid off, with Valeriy “⁠b1t⁠” Vakhovskiy shining in an overtime victory.

However, G2 weren’t going to roll over, and they went on to take their map pick, Inferno, to send the series to Anubis.

Despite a close first and second map, NAVI dominated on Anubis, winning 13-9.

In another Group C matchup, Ninjas in Pyjamas faced Complexity, aiming for redemption after a tough start.

NiP, with a strong CT side performance from Kristian ‘k0nfig’ Wienecke and Patrick ‘es3tag’ Hansen, secured a 13-9 victory on the first map.

Astralis impressed by defeating Team Vitality 2-1 (13-10, 6-13, 13-4) in the Group A upper final.

Vitality, the world’s best Counter-Strike, team struggled on Mirage before finding form on Vertigo, where they won in dominant fashion.

However, Martin “⁠stavn⁠” Lund’s strong performance on Overpass and crucial clutches by Victor “⁠Staehr⁠” Staehr contributed to Astralis’ dominant victory on the decisive map.

The loss ended Vitality’s nine-match and 12-map win streaks.

Falcons rebounded from a day one defeat against Astralis, dominating OG on Ancient (13-2) and securing the series victory on Vertigo (13-11).

The strong CT effort on Ancient, led by Álvaro “⁠SunPayus⁠” García, boosted Falcons’ confidence.

The win sets up a consolidation final against Astralis, offering a chance for Emil “⁠Magisk⁠” Reif and Danny “⁠zonic⁠” Sørensen to face their former teammates.
