A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
These North American matches are way better than all those 50-50 coin flips we’ve had today, Cloud9 are facing the new CLG which is basically a mix of 3 fairly experienced professionals and two amateurs from ESEA Main/Premier divisions, I really don’t understand how could such a big org allow this to happen, this team just doesn’t have what it takes to play on the professional level anymore, they already showed how bad they are, their recent match against OpTic was an absolute disaster as they got wrecked 4-16 on mirage and 9-16 on cobblestone, and Cloud9 are even stronger so it’s gonna be fun.
Cloud9 got lucky with the maps here, mirage is a great map for them and train is literally their best map, CLG also used to be good on these maps but not nearly as good as Cloud9, definitely not with this lineup. Cloud9 recently beat OpTic 16-6 and NRG 16-11 on mirage, train went even better, they wrecked NRG 16-1, OpTic 16-3 and compLexity 16-5, I don’t expect CLG to do any better than these three teams, so we will most likely see yet another 2-0 for Cloud9 today.
My odds for this match: CLG 25:75 Cloud9
Simply put the new CLG roster does not really look that convincing. I think they have a long way to go to compete and the only reason for these pickups was there was nobody else they could get, so they had to look at premier players and hope they can improve and raise their game. I don’t think the chances are good for CLG on either of these maps unless we see Clown9 again, which we have not seen for a long time actually. Mirage and Train are the maps tonight, and I do see CLG having a small chance on Mirage, but Train feels like an almost guaranteed win for C9. They are superior on this map in every way, and I can see this being a comfortable 2-0.
My odds for this match: CLG 30:70 Cloud9
