Predict for a duel with Astralis and OG in the Flashpoint Season 3. Will the Danes take revenge for BLAST Premier Spring Showdown 2021 or will the OG be stronger again?
Astralis - it's too early to draw any special conclusions about the Danish team's performance without a device. The upcoming match with G2 in the quarterfinals of DreamHack Masters Spring 2021 will show a lot, the team had about 5 days to prepare and it is very interesting what they prepared. They have good training on Nuke and Inferno, and the Danes are banned from Mirage.
Nuke (0 wins - 1 loss)
Inferno (0 wins - 1 loss)
Nuke (opponent's pick): lost to Heroic with a score of 6:16 (6 in defense, 0 in attack)
Inferno (own pick): lost to Heroic with a score of 6:16 (3 in attack, 3 in defense)
OG - with the arrival of flameZ, the team started to play pretty well, they managed to outplay Trident, FaZe Clan and Movistar Riders, thus they made it to the main stage of IEM Summer 2021. OG continue to rate with their map Inferno and are banned by Vertigo.
Overpass (1 win - 0 lose)
Inferno (1 win - 0 lose)
Overpass (opponent`s pick): defeated Movistar Riders with a score of 16:5 (11 in defense, 5 in attack)
Inferno (own pick): defeated Movistar Riders with a score of 16:14 (5 in defense, 9 in attack)
Predict for the match Astralis vs OG in Flashpoint Season 3
OG already beat Astralis literally 3 weeks ago, back then with device. At BLAST Premier Spring Showdown 2021, OG won the Danes at Inferno 16:7 and Dust 2 19:17.
It is likely that the story with OG's victory will repeat itself, the European team should focus on dupreeh and its beginning with AWP. This is a clear weakness of Astralis, which needs to be pressed. Also, OG will clearly be watching the Astralis matches at DreamHack and should notice other weaknesses of their future opponent.
Bookmakers give odds of 1.72 for Astralis and 2.078 for OG. Objective quotes, we suggest believing in the success of OG, 2+ such a match is clearly not worth missing, the teams have the same map-pool, and OG's individual form is more impressive.
