FURIA thrash Astralis to reach ESL Pro League semi-finals

Astralis couldn’t bounce back after their play-in loss at the hands of Gambit, and have been eliminated from the ESL Pro League Season 13 playoffs in their first match, the quarter-finals, by FURIA, who secured Vertigo (16-10) before closing the Danes out on their own map pick, Train (16-2).

“I don’t think we expected a Train pick. We imagined they could do it, but it was very unlikely in our opinion,” Andrei “⁠arT⁠” Piovezan said in the post-match interview, “it was kind of a surprise, yeah. But a good surprise, in a sense!” FURIA will now face Heroic on Saturday at 19:00
