A new set of gladiators entered the arena in Dusseldorf as Group B kicked off in the ESL Pro League Season 15. ENCE managed to topple Katowice laureates FaZe Clan.
Sprout come up short
In the opening series of the day, Sprout fell short against Vitality. The German organization came close to winning Inferno, the second map of the series, but ultimately fell short in overtime.
Vitality will be thanking superstar AWPer Mathieu "ZywOo" Heirbaut, as the 21-year-old put up a monster performance on the map.

FaZe Clan has no time to overthink the loss, as they face Outsiders tomorrow. ENCE will try and show that they are more than just outsiders in the group against Vitality.
In the final series of the day, Furia took down Outsiders.
The Brazilians, with star rifler Kaike "KSCERATO" Cerato topping the charts, needed three maps to create a gap between them and their Russian adversaries.
With ENCE's victory in mind, this win might be crucial for Furia, as the group is highly likely to have some tiebreakers after five games.
Furia will face Sprout tomorrow, as they hope to remain undefeated going into day three, while Outsiders face FaZe Clan in a bottom of the rankings match.
