Just a quick prediction here. Vega should be able to take this one easily if there are no last minute lineup changes. Vega is probably the best CIS team out there at the moment, and they do have potential to play at a good level against non-domestic teams. Against other CIS teams, they do perform quite well and they do pull wins off. Their most recent match was against Kinguin, and in all honesty, they didn’t do too bad. Although they did lose 0-2. they did take a total of 16 rounds off them in both of the maps combined. Apart from that loss, Vega actually haven’t lost a game since early July, when they lost to Phenomenon.
As for Pries, I would class them as one of the top CIS teams too, but the skill difference between them and Vega is quite large. When they were USSR, they did get good results. Pries’ most recent match was against ‘dope’, where they won 2-0 convincingly. Before that, they lost 0-2 to the Finnish Epiphany, 13-16 and 5-16. They don’t play as regularly as Vega, but I do know for a fact that they do have potential, and the lineup is looking pretty good for Pries.
The last time both of these teams played was on the 23rd of July, and Vega won 2-0 but just barely. Both of the maps (Dust 2 and Cache) went into the final rounds, and Vega won both maps 16-14. This was quite some time ago however.
This match should go in Vega’s direction, and they do have an extremely good chance at winning this. They just look like the overall better team at the moment, and their skill cap is higher than Pries’. My personal odds are 25-75 and if the odds don’t get too crazy, i’ll just place some skins on Vega. If the odds get wild, I would just advise a straight up skip to avoid the risk VS low reward.
My odds for this match: Pries 25:75 Vega
