NiKo’s last-second clutch propels G2 to IEM Cologne semifinals with win over Gambit

A last-second defuse clutch from G2 Esports’ Nikola “NiKo” Kovač, with only fractions of a second left, gave G2 the unbelievable win over Gambit, arguably the world’s best CS:GO team. With the victory in the final round of Group A play at IEM Cologne 2021, G2 have not only secured a playoff spot, but also a bye directly to the semifinals.

Before NiKo’s heroics, G2 had the tough challenge of defeating the hottest team in CS:GO right now, Gambit. In 2021 alone, they’ve won three major trophies at IEM Katowice, IEM Summer, and the BLAST Premier Spring Finals. Since adding NiKo in late 2020, G2 have won a couple of minor BLAST events, but are still chasing that elusive top-tier event championship.
