FURIA stay alive in Roobet Cup

After stumbling in their first game, the top Brazilian side recovered with a win over Outsiders.

FURIA have secured their first win of the Roobet Cup, a 2-0 victory over Outsiders. This is a pleasant turnaround for FURIA, who found themselves in today's elimination match after getting narrowly upset by LATAM underdog 9z in their opening matchup.

The series kicked off on Outsider's choice of Inferno, with things starting off fairly well for the CIS squad as Dzhami "Jame" Ali's men claimed four of the first five rounds. This good fortune did not last long, however, as FURIA took control of the remainder of the half, allowing Outsiders to pick up only one more round, finishing the half 10-5 in FURIA's favor. FURIA's dominance continued into the second map, with Outsiders piecing together only one round before FURIA stole away Inferno 16-6.

The first half of FURIA's pick of Vertigo was a much closer affair. Outsiders started strong once again, stringing five rounds together on their CT-side before FURIA responded with a streak of five of their own. The two sides traded streaks for the remainder of the half, seeing FURIA narrowly take the lead 8-7.

A pistol-round win for FURIA in the second half allowed for the Brazilians to begin breaking away from Outsiders, as they soon claimed an 11-7 lead. A half-buy win for Outsiders allowed the CIS squad to break the streak, but FURIA managed to stay in the driver's seat for the remainder of the half. With Outsiders unable to muster a solid offense, FURIA closed out Vertigo 16-10, keeping their run in the Roobet Cup alive.
