Pasting the same prediction I used for the first match as I’m pretty sure that Astralis will take both maps.
So this is a very interesting matchup between two danish teams, unfortunately one team is way better than the other, Astralis is one of the best teams in the world and even though they are not very good at lan events, beating SK Gaming shouldn’t be an issue for them, especially knowing that karrigan will be playing today, wouldn’t really matter that much anyway as Astralis did great with zonic, beating NRG on two close maps and absolutely destroying CLG, but still, it’s great to have him back rather than playing with a coach I guess.
SK Gaming did great against CLG on the first map, surprisingly enough it was nuke and I thought we will see a pug since not many teams practiced that map yet, but SK Gaming looked great and won the map 16-3, the second one was overpass and this one didn’t go that well, SK Gaming went 3-12 on the first half (T side), it really seemed like the match is already over, but somehow they managed to come back and tie the score at 14-14, unfortunately CLG took the last two rounds and won the match 16-14. I already said it and I’ll keep repeating it – something really weird happened to SK Gaming after CEVO Season 9 Professional Finals and they’ve been playing really bad since then, they finished on the second place at that event and looked like crap ever since that event.
So that’s basically it, Astralis should be able to win both maps, the only risk is that stupid format ELEAGUE uses with the random map and stuff, but I don’t think it will matter in this case.
My odds for this match: Astralis 80:20 SK Gaming
