Day 11 match result and highlights of VCT 2022 Stage 2 Masters Copenhagen

Fans witnessed another VCT rivalry between North America and EMEA for the first time live at the Forum Arena last night. However, FPX won the series in front of their home supporters and qualified for tonight's Grand Finals against PRX.

Match results

It was a best-of-five series between OpTic Gaming and FunPlus Phoenix on the eleventh day of the VCT Stage 2 Masters Copenhagen. Below are the match results of the Lower Finals series between the two sides:

  • OpTic Gaming vs FunPlus Phoenix: Split (6-13), Icebox (8-13), Bind (13-6), and Fracture (7-13)

Top 5 highlights

1) Shao's 4K clutch on Split

Shao with Omen on Split was truly magnificent last night and became the Match MVP. However, his 4K clutch with a Vandal in hand in the third round was one of the game's best moments. Shao's crisp aim and composure were instrumental in helping him win the round.


2) Yay's unbelievable clutch on Icebox

OpTic Yay once again showed off his poise and reflex last night. His clutch on Icebox in the 15th round after taking down SUYGETSU with a crispy Vandal headshot was exceptional. Though OpTic lost the match, it was one of the game's best plays.


3) FPX's site retake on Bind

This was a prime example of the team's record. FPX retook site control after OpTic Gaming planted the Spike on the A site. Though it was a semi-buy round for the EMEA side, FPX did an exceptional job of winning the round.


4) Another clutch from Shao on Bind

Shao popped up big once again when his team needed him the most. But this time with Fade. The 1v2 clutch denying the Spike Plant of OpTic Gaming was undoubtedly a high IQ play from him.


5) Yay's masterclass on Fracture

Arguably the best moment of the game and a play to remember. The way Yay ignored Omen's teleport to remove Raze and escape from the area was truly phenomenal. He eventually killed Omen with his second shot.


Standings

With the elimination of OpTic Gaming last night, only two teams remain in the VCT Stage 2 Masters Copenhagen. FunPlus Phoenix became the second team to reach the Grand Final after Paper Rex.
