If the North Americans wanted to start their run at ECS Season V with some real challenge, well, they got it. Astralis, the current undoubted best team in the world is going to face Cloud9 in the opening match of the event in London.
Cloud9 will be running into London for ECS Season V Finals as the team in-game leader departs from the team and this is his last tournament of the quick run he had with the team. While this doesn’t set things at a favorable point for Cloud9, the things couldn’t get much worse from what they’re now. Cloud9 is in complete disarray and this tournament shouldn’t be much better. While FNS couldn’t proved himself useful for the team, Skadoodle performances has proved that he is not in the level they need to keep up amongst the best.
Astralis in the other hand got the best opponent they could wish. The Danes are looking unstoppable right now and if anything, they’re looking to do even better than they did in EPL Season 7 Finals. ECS Season V Finals could mark the start of the Astralis era and Magisk, Dupreeh and device are surely looking forward to it.
Going into this match we expect to see Train being the map played, and Astralis going over as the winners.
My odds for this match: Astralis 84:16 Cloud9
