Prediction for Marlian vs GROND in the EPIC League CIS 2021 knock-out match.
Marlian have had problems during this tournament. This is the first experience of playing in a big tournament for this team and the fact that they made it is already a good result. Marlian is too lacking in shooters, with the once talented Ukrainian nat1ve often dropping out of the team. Defeat against K23 could have broken the team, as it certainly wasn't what they hoped for before the game started. Team will be faced with a choice between banning Dust2 or Inferno, as these maps are too uncomfortable for Marlian.
GROND's situation is similar to Marlian's. They showed a good game in the closed qualifiers, but started to fail in the main stage of the tournament. The team lacks solutions that can turn the game around. Inexperience and lack of chemistry with a new player is evident. GROND have had time to prepare for their opponent and sort out their mistakes. The headache for them is Overpass.
MATCH PREDICTION MARLIAN VS GROND
