CG has surprised a lot of us after they won against HR 2-1 in the PGL Minor Qualifiers. Thanks to that win, they have qualified for the EU Minor. Who knew that this mix of Swedes and Danes could even beat a ‘big name’ like HR? To be fair though, HR is really slipping skill wise and they’re not too great anymore.
To my understanding, this team is more of a mix than an actual competitive team. All of the players have a history of playing competitively whether it be in 1.6, Source or the early days of CSGO. Some names to watch out for are draken and REZ.
Unlike CG, LDLC Blue is an actual team, sponsored by the LDLC organisation and is partnered/rivaled with LDLC White. This roster is probably a top 6 on in France, and skill wise, they aren’t too bad. They were last seen playing in the QuickShot Arena #17 and 99DMG #17 in December last year.
In the QuckShot Arena, they lost both of their early matches which got them eliminated. BX3 and OnlineBots prevailed over them and in the 99DMG Arena, they initially won in their BO3 against Eyes On U 2-1 but were later on defeated by E-frag.
Final thoughts and advice
I don’t think this match is too safe to bet on, but that’s just what I think. I would like to see CG play more to determine how skillful they actually are, but the win against HR was a good feat. Regardless, I would place a small bet on LDLC Blue and hopefully ‘skill’ based maps will be picked (eg Inferno) so they can use ‘real’ strats and use them to outplay CG.
My odds for this match: CG 60:40 LDLC.Blue
