I think many of us don’t know where this Best of 3 match can go. It’s Astralis (#8) against FaZe (#36), but ranks shouldn’t be considered here. Astralis, going straight to the main tournament, had a long break before tournament as we didn’t see them play for more than one month. I must say I consider that break as a helpful and should help Astralis to perform well at this tournament, but until the break, the team was in awful form and slowly losing respect they gained over the years… This ofc brings some questions what will we see in one of the most loved tournament.

On the other hand there is FaZe who seems to find again their long-term squad of mixed experience and talent: karrigan, olofmeister, rain, Twistzz and broky. This team seems to be going straight up in their form and for sure will hit higher ranks in no time. They had to qualify for the main tournament, defeating Evil Geniuses 16-12 in BO1 and then showed promising performance in the 2-0 win (BO3) against Complexity.

As long as I’m looking forward to this match as a fan, I will be cheering for a close and long match. Astralis still better team to be fair, but circumstances are in favor of FaZe…

My pick:
Over 2,5 maps @ 1,83 (bet365)
