Astralis sweep Virtus Pro to advance to 2021 IEM Cologne semifinals

Astralis have booked a spot in the 2021 IEM Cologne semifinals following a nail-biting 2-1 victory (19-16 on Overpass, 20-22 on Dust II, and 16-8 on Inferno) over Virtus Pro today in the first quarterfinal match of the day.

This was the first time that Lucas “Bubzkji” Andersen, who had been a sub for most of his stint with Astralis, seemed to feel confident playing with the core of the legendary Danish CS:GO lineup. The 23-year-old is playing in his first big stage playoffs with Lukas “gla1ve” Andersen and crew and showed signs of the player he once was on MAD Lions. He led the leaderboards in rating (1.23) and ADR (83.8), even though he was second in terms of his number of frags (77) to Andreas “Xyp9x” Højsleth (84).
