ASTRALIS CONTINUE FROM 2ND PLACE IN GROUP A
Monday, June 1st, Astralis blasted off BLAST Premier Showdown with two matches on the same day. Fielding a new squad with Marco 'Snappi' Pfeiffer in the place of Andreas 'Xyp9X' Højsleth, Astralis had an expected rough time against Ninjas in Pyjamas losing 7-16.
The team was a bit warmer for their second match against the Portuguese sAw taking their first win 16-4. With 1 win and 1 loss, Astralis took 2nd place in Group A.
Two more matches await in the Group Stage where only one team is eliminated ahead of the playoffs. But it's a tight race between the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th best teams in the group.
