G2, mouz post victories in ESL Pro League Euro event

G2 and mousesports posted victories Saturday in Group C action in the ESL Pro League Season 11’s European competition.

Both won by identical 2-1 margins, though mouz had to come-from-behind to defeat FaZe. Mouz dropped Nuke 16-9 but rallied to win 16-14 on Train and 16-12 on Dust II.

G2 defeated TYLOO with a 16-7 win on Inferno and a 16-3 win on Vertigo, sandwiched by a 16-14 loss on Dust II.

The ESL Pro League Season 11 was due to be held in Malta, with 24 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive teams set to compete for a $750,000 prize pool. But it was moved online due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In addition, the field was split into a European event with 18 total teams and a separate North American event with six teams.

In the European event, the top team from each group advances to the six-team second stage, and the second- and third-place finishers in each group will square off for places in the second stage.

The European champion earns $75,000 of a $531,000 prize pool. The North American winner will receive $75,000 of a $219,000 prize pool.
