Pretty random that CSGL are at this event against so many NA sides makes predicting this game difficult. They are a very organised side because of Loord who has large amounts of experience he can put onto his younger players. In MICHU they have a player who can compete with anyone in Liquid, and he will need to be on top form if they are to take this.
Liquid at the RGN showed off their strengths and their weaknesses and made it to the final in a sometimes unconvincing fashion. They still make almost elementary mistakes sometimes that costs them matches, even their more experienced players. They still go into this game as the favourites, due to their recent performances at big LANS against international opposition.
This is CSGL’s first big event outside of Europe, and it is hard to say exactly how they will perform. Also it is a lot to take in and get used too, as well as jet lag issues, could all impact their performances. The real odds for this game in my eyes, are 60-40 in favour of Liquid, and with how they are right now, you should go LOW on CSGL, or SKIP.
My odds for this match: Liquid 60:40 CSGL
Team CSGL isn’t that bad of a team as they’re actually a very viable European teams that have been known for taking out high tier teams and subbing in for top tier teams during their days running under ESC. Compared to team Liquid, CSGL is slightly under Liquid’s performance but that’s just research on paper. In real world performance, CSGL has a higher chance at taking this game than people think. The team that CSGL runs under has been invited into a few majors and performed well, something that team Liquid has yet to do. Sure Liquid performed well in a NA LAN but when pit against Europeans, they have yet to impress. Considering this is a BO1 and upset potential is high, my bets will be going with CSGL for the time being.
A SMALL bet on CSGL is recommended.
My odds for this match: Liquid 45:55 CSGL
