Apparently, the replacement in Cloud9 put the entire structure of the game in jeopardy. Yesterday's game against 100 Thieves showed all the problems of the winners of the spring split and, as it turned out, there are a lot of them: from individual actions to team movements, C9 is extremely uncertain, and sometimes even frivolous.
Team Liquid unexpectedly put Alphari on the bench, and Jenkins was called to the squad from the academy. Apparently, from the first game, personal problems appeared that prevented them from playing comfortably together, otherwise it is impossible to explain the reason for such a sharp replacement, but we can only guess.
During this season, the teams met 5 times. Team Liquid consistently proved to be stronger in BO1, however Cloud9 outplayed TL in BO5 as much as 3 times.
Prediction for the match: Cloud9 vs Team Liquid
Both teams appear before the match in bad shape, but if Team Liquid were able to solve their local crisis with one substitution, then for Cloud9 everything is much more complicated: they will have to reconsider their approach to drafts and play and try hard not to end the first week 0-3.
Bookmakers give 1.65 on Cloud9 and 2.15 for Team Liquid to win. Considering all of the above factors, we recommend betting TL.
