Virtus.pro, OG reach 2-0 in ESL One L.A.'s Europe division

Virtus.pro and OG each won again on Monday to remain undefeated and sit atop Group A as the Europe-Commonwealth of Independent States region of ESL One Los Angeles Online continued round-robin play. Virtus.pro beat Gambit Esports 2-1 in the Dota 2 event, and OG topped B8 by the same margin in the day's final match, leaving both victors 2-0 and both losers 0-2.

Gambit took the early edge on Virtus.pro, winning the first game of the best-of-three series in 50 minutes. But Virtus.pro, who benched carry Zaur "Cooman" Shakhmurzaev in favor of Igor "iLTW" Filatov this week, needed just 50 minutes total to win the final two games. OG claimed the first and third maps against B8 in a match that took just shy of two hours.

Earlier Monday, HellRaisers ground out a sweep of Vikin.gg -- needing 41 minutes to take the first game and 67 minutes to claim the second -- and Team Nigma took down Cyber Legacy 2-1. The $200,000 Europe-CIS region features 16 teams -- 15 direct invites and qualifier Chicken Fighters -- split into two groups that are fighting for eight total playoff spots. After the round-robin group stage, the top two teams from each group will advance to the upper bracket, with the third- and fourth-place teams heading to the lower bracket.

Each group will be in action every other day through April 16, with Group B playing its second round Tuesday: Team Unique vs. Team Spirit
