A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
The top team in NA will be facing one of the best online teams in the region to open up the fifth season of StarSeries i-League and while we already saw the encounters between these two teams going both ways, this time is Liquid who has the advantage.
Team Liquid is coming out to Kiev with a winning mindset. The team who was the only able to take one map of Astralis in ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals couldn’t beat the Danish behemoth but in their own way, they also dominated every other team in EPL. Coming into StarSeries, ELIGE and NAF shouldn’t have problems to punish their opponents and this time it will be a matter of who can stop them from winning their first premier trophy.
NRG is a decent team by all means but they simply can’t convert their online results into LANs and we saw this in the past two events the team attended. Cerq is a very promising player but needs some backbones from his team that when it comes to facing the top dogs, disappear.
Coming into this best of three we expect to see Mirage, Inferno and Dust 2 being played, which gives little to no room for lose to Liquid. Thus, we recommend a big bet on the NA powerhouse.
My odds for this match: NRG eSports 19:81 Liquid
