During DreamHack Masters, Fnatic have defeated Furia 34-32 on Overpass map to set to the world record in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive for the longest played map between tier-one teams.

After yesterday's elimination of title favourites Evil Geniuses, DreamHack Masters Malmo brings more big news today. This time, Furia and Fnatic take the main roles in one of the best matches on the tournament so far. 

The Swedish team managed to defeat Brazilians Furia 24-32 on Overpass, making this round the longest-played map between tier-one teams ever in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. The previous record was set by Astralis and CR4ZY who battled out on The Dust II during the StarLadder berling Major in August 2019. The Danes eventually took the win (31-29) over CR4ZY. 

As you can see on the DramHack Counter-Strike Twitter timeline, the match between Fnatic and Furia brought a ton of quality highlight clips from the match. Eventually, Fnatic managed to grab the win with easy 16-5 result on Inferno map, which makes them the second team to head to the Arena. 

As for individual performances, in the first round Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson and Ludwig "Brollan" Brolin led their team to glory with 54 and 57 kills, respectively. On the Brazilian team, Vinicius "VINI" Figueiredo and Henrique "HEN1" Teles tried their best to bring the win to their team, finishing with 55 and 52 frags. Fnatic’s Jesper "JW" Wecksell took the spotlight game by saving the round with an ace. 

In the second round, Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson once again led his team to victory with 14 frags while on the losing side,  Kaike "KSCERATO" Cerato had 13 kills but that wasn't enough to turn the match in Furia's favour.

With this loss, Furia is officially eliminated from Dreamhack Masters Malmo, while Fnatic are going to the Swedish Arena as already mentioned.

At the time of writing, Natus Vincere are leading against Ninjas in Pyjamas on Overpass in the first round 15-8. You can watch the game here .
