Cloud9 vs. Evil Geniuses
The obvious challenger to the favorites is Cloud9.
It feels like we haven’t seen Cloud9 for a while, but we know what to expect.
Their game against the favorites should be good, but like the North Americans, the rest of this group should be a cakewalk for them.
Evil Geniuses is a team we know what to expect from, they’re bad.
They’ll remain that way as long as Vicente “Brehze” Cayonte and Tsvetelin “CeRq” Dimitrov remain on the roster.
Eternal Fire vs. FURIA Esports
Eternal Fire now seems to just be Space Soldiers reloaded.
Ismailcan “XANTARES” Dörtkardeş and Özgür “woxic” Eker are fun, but they’re stars of yesteryear.
If they were better, they wouldn’t be on this team.
Engin “MAJ3R” Küpeli is even on the team, and he’d been out of the game for a year following a switch to VALORANT.
So we’d be excited for FURIA, but let’s face it, they’ve been going down for a while.
Even worse, they are becoming boring too.
FURIA used to be a shining light of fun in Pro CS:GO.
Andrei “arT” Piovezan’s aggression and their crazy and innovative boosts used to give the team so much flair, but arT’s form dried up a long time ago, and the innovation seems to have too.
Team Liquid vs. Movistar Riders
Team Liquid is the favorite to take the top spot.
Since the arrival of Mareks “YEKINDAR” Galinskis the team has overturned a firepower deficit and now holds a place within HLTV’s top five.
They’re looking great, it’ll be a surprise if anyone manages to top them.
Movistar Riders without Alvaro “SunPayus” Garcia is like Aston Villa without Jack Grealish, completely pointless and void of all entertainment. Expect an easy win for Team Liquid in the CS:GO Pro League Matchday 16.
