MIBR was victorious against eUnited as they beat them 2-0 last night. This win ensures that the Brazilians now advance to the finals of the fourth week of ECS Season 7. The two sides competed on Mirage, Nuke and Inferno with the scoreboard showing 16-6, 4-16 and 16-14 in favor of the side led by Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo.

With the last night victory, the MIBR returns to compete in the championship on Thursday, against the winner of the match between Luminosity Gaming and Team Liquid. It is worth remembering that Made in Brazil will also face Argentine Isurus Gaming this week, in the ESL Pro League.
The first map played was MIBR’s choice and it was Mirage. The Brazilians started from the CT side and, despite winning the round pistol, struggled early in the first half. Marcelo “coldzera” David got four kills in a single round and was decisive for the good performance of the team in the later stage of the half. MIBR went into the break with 10-5 lead on the board. FalleN made a good 1v2 clutch in the second half and continued to win his duels. His clinical performance sealed the 16-6 victory for his team.
