FURIA Esports swept Evil Geniuses in the upper-bracket final of the ESL Pro League Season 12: North America event on Thursday.

FURIA moved on to Sunday's best-of-five grand final in the $225,000 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament, where they will begin with a one-map advantage.

EG dropped into the lower-bracket final, where they await the winner of Friday's match between Team Liquid and 100 Thieves.
