Vitality continued to pressure Virtus.pro, not giving them any room to breathe. While there were a few close rounds, Vitality extended their lead to 8-0,

Starting on the T side in the second half, Vitality kicked things off with a strong pistol half as Shahar "flameZ" Shushan jumped around the corner with a Glock for the first kill, and it just went pear-shaped for VP form there.

On Vitality's map pick of Dust2, ZywOo popped off with his P250 on the T side to win the pistol round in a 2v4 situation. Virtus.pro decided not to force buy in the second round, so Vitality picked up an easy round win for a 2-0 scoreline.

Vitality's British rifler, William "mezii" Merriman, saved his team from a loss in the third round, pulling off a nice 2v1 clutch on the A site, denying Virtus.pro the defuse. However, VP didn't go down without a fight, clawing one back in the fourth round.

Vitality quickly recovered and continued to pick off Virtus.pro time and time again to pull 5-1 ahead early on Dust2 before Virtus.pro took a tactical pause.
