On April 10 only one match was held at Cyber.Bet Cup. NAVI Junior and Hard Legion were fighting for the second play-off spot from Group A.
NAVI Junior – Hard Legion – 2:1 (12:16 Dust 2, 16:13 Overpass, 16:14 Inferno)
Both teams do not play Nuke and they ignored this map during first ban and pick stage. NAVI banned Train and picked Dust 2, while HL preferred to ban Vertigo and pick Overpass. Juniors played decent CT side on their own pick, which is treated to be T-sided. They won the first half 9:6. Hard Legion managed to win the pistol round and the next one, but NAVI answered with two rounds in their favor. HL had only two rifles, but it was enough to gain the third round in defense, that turned out to be the key round, that broke NAVI’s game. They took only one more round and lost their pick 12:16.
It seemed that NAVI do not stand a chance on Overpass. They even lost CT side 7:8 and were behind 8:12 in offense. It looked like Hard Legion were too self-confident, but NAVI started to come back. It was not the best day for Gospadarov, but B1T was in the god mode. He never had positive K-D on Cyber.Bet Cup, but he finished Overpass with 32:15 K-D and 1.86 rating 2.0. His incredible plays inspired the other youngsters to come back and with the opponent’s pick 16:13!
On deciding map Inferno the teams matched each other stride for stride. Only in the end, NAVI managed to get a decent lead 14:10. Hard Legion took four time-outs during one freeze time, but this did not help them as the lost 16:14. NAVI Junior are through to play-off.
