TheMongolz put on a stunning display to secure their spot in the ESL Pro League Season 19 playoffs, defeating G2 Esports convincingly in 2-0 (13-4, 13-7) fashion.

Counter-Strike 2 commentator Henry “HenryG” Greer lauded TheMongolz’s performance, acknowledging Mathieu “Maniac” Quiquerez’s statement that it wouldn’t be fair to solely attribute the victory to G2’s underperformance.

Indeed, while G2 struggled throughout the series, TheMongolz showcased exceptional skill and coordination.

G2 found themselves outclassed on both maps, managing only a minor resurgence on Anubis.

None of G2’s players managed a rating above 1, while every member of TheMongolz surpassed 1.25.

Notably, AWPer Usukhbayar “910” Banzragch stood out with a remarkable 1.51 rating, 37-16 KD, and 89.2 ADR, showcasing his prowess despite being overshadowed by his rifling teammates.

One highlight for G2 was a standout play from Ilya “m0NESY” Osipov, whose quad-kill on the A site with a scout briefly sparked hope.

However, G2 failed to capitalize, and frustration mounted as TheMongolz maintained their dominance.

TheMongolz displayed composure in a relatively low-stakes match, with more challenges ahead in the upper bracket final.

Meanwhile, Team Vitality secured their playoff spot with a comfortable 2-0 (13-4, 13-9) victory over BetBoom Team, setting up a seeding match against TheMongolz.

Vitality’s resurgence, particularly the improved form of Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut, was evident throughout the tournament.

After a shaky start against Sharks, ZywOo’s stellar performances against BetBoom signaled his return to form.

Dan “apEX” Madesclaire credited Vitality’s success to strategic rest and preparation, highlighting the team’s dominance on Mirage and their proactive approach on Anubis.

As Vitality faces TheMongolz in the upper bracket, both teams aim for a spot in the quarterfinals, while BetBoom hopes to avoid elimination in the lower bracket against Falcons.
