G2 Esports narrowly defeat BDS Esport in long-awaited Pro League matchup

The opening matchday of the European division of the Rainbow Six Pro League looks to have set up G2 Esports and BDS Esport for a potential rivalry in season 11. 

BDS previously knocked G2 out of the DreamHack Montreal 2019 group stage but only after the two teams found themselves in the losers bracket of their group. This is normally what fans point to when describing the dynamic between the two teams. But now, the edge decisively goes to G2 after a 7-5 victory today during their first meeting in the Pro League.

BDS had done a fine job of keeping pace with G2 in a tit-for-tat matchup that saw each team consistently up the ante with alternating wins. The dynamic of the match explains why these teams are often talked about within the same breath.
