3. LEGIJA vs Immortals

Nikola Ninic is now the coach of BIG, but the experienced Serbian player had quite a few spectacular rounds back when he played on the main roster. The highlight below is from a 1v1 situation in which a perfect execute from LEGIJA let him defuse the bomb, while also hiding him from the opponent’s fire.

2. woxic vs Gambit Gaming
