The second match of the gaming day started on the map Ancient, which became the choice of the Spanish team. However, the players of Movistar Riders soon regretted the decision to choose this particular map, as they showed a frankly weak attack and did not take a single round - 15:0. After switching sides, the Spaniards still managed to win the pistol series, but in vain. As a result, FURIA confidently dealt with her opponent and took the lead in the series - 16:3.

Next, the teams moved to the Nuke map, which turned out to be the choice of FURIA. Nevertheless, here the game developed according to the scenario of the Spaniards, who managed to get a minimal advantage at the end of the first half - 8:7. After switching sides, Movistar Riders quickly consolidated their position, at some point starting to think about a third map. But then the Brazilians joined the game, who took 9 rounds in a row, and at the same time secured victory in the series - 16:13.

Tomorrow, September 23, the Brazilian team will meet with Team Liquid, while Movistar Riders will play with Cloud9.
