Cloud9 gracefully beat Team Liquid in the final of the upper bracket. The team has problems with the picks of the champions, but in performance they have no equal. PerkZ in mid has a large pool of champions of any type, Blaber takes the most valuable player in the group stage for the second split in a row, and Fudge gets stronger with every game.
Team Liquid showed their character in the game with TSM: very few people will be able to back 7.8 thousand gold. Also, the team made serious mistakes, not only in the game, but also in the draft. Alphari is one of the best toppers in the world, but is it powerful enough to defeat Cloud9?
The last time the teams met on April 3, then Cloud9 won with a score of 3-1.
Prediction for the match: Team Liquid vs Cloud9
Cloud9 has already got revenge on Liquid for the final of the opening tournament and they have every chance to pick up this split and go to MSI.
TL showed their preparations in the match against TSM and, most likely, they approach the grand final open like a book for their rivals, while Cloud9 has been closely watching them all week.
Bookmakers give 1.27 for Cloud9 to win and 3.55 for Team Liquid. Considering all of the above factors, we recommend betting on Cloud9 with a score of 3-1 with a 3.20 odds.
