Astralis vs Fnatic
Astralis has shown poor performances in their recent games. The team has suffered back to back defeats against Virtus Pro and Spirit. Getting beaten 1-2 by Virtus Pro is quite underestable since the Russian is a force to be reckoned with at the moment and are predicted to make their mark in the ESL competition.
However, it makes no sense in losing to Spirit. Since the team is no where near compared to the one of the best teams in the world like Astralis. Now the Danish team will be aiming to get back to its winning ways as they take on Fnatic. The Swedish side is also experiencing some troubling times as they are on a three-game losing streak. The team lost to Virtus Pro, OG and MIBR. So seeing this statistic, you might rate Astralis as the clear winner, however it is not the case since despite these series of defeats the team has claimed solid wins against
Complexity, Cloud9 and OG. So it will be interesting to see which team will come out on top yet we still rate Astralis as the favorite. Since the Danes have shown time and again that they can bounce back to claim great victories.
Prediction: Astralis 2-0 Fnatic
Team Liquid vs Virtus Pro
Virtus.Pro is currently ranked at third place in the world ranking and they deserve this spot. Since the team has shown utter dominance in their recent games. The team holds a very applaudable record of six victories in eight matches. The team has grabbed solid wins against the likes of Team Liquid, Astralis, FURIA, Team Vitality, Ninjas In Pyjamas and Renegades.
Yet they only lost to CIS teams, Natus Vincere, and Gambit. In the confidence of this great run and also beating Liquid in recent weeks there’s no denying that Fnatic will be aiming for a win. Liquid is in decent shape at the moment since the team has won two out of the last four matches, which includes beating Triumph, and RGB. While losing to pain which makes no sense.
However, in the past few weeks, the team has won against FaZe, Vitality and OG. yet this record is still not convincing enough to convince that the team has what it takes to beat the mighty Virtus.Pro.
Prediction: Team Liquid 0-2 Virtus Pro
Evil Geniuses vs Endpoint
Endpoint arrived in the competition with a hot streak of their own, since the team is on a seven-game win streak. This remarkable feat was achieved by beating Lyngby Vikings, GODSENT, Nemiga, Zj, Copenhagen Flames, Pompa and LDLC. Yet the betting community is still betting for Evil Geniuses and we will tell you why.
EG might not be in the best of forms as the team has accommodated three defeats in their last four games. They only won against Gambit yet losing to Complexity, Astralis and G2 Esports. We are taking nothing away from Endpoint’s great record. Yet at the same Evil Geniuses, would also have easily claimed wins against the above-mentioned. Team. They would also have taken down Copenhagen HAVU and AGI, the teams who have beaten Endpoint.
The British side is a great team but the team is currently inexperienced and will have a tough task of taking on some of the best teams in the world. So despite this great record from Endpoint, we give the edge to Evil Geniuses to win this game.
