Third match day at the StarLadder RMR
On the third day, the RMR event will see the first absolute top duels. ForZe will meet Gambit, while Virtus.Pro and Spirit will play against each other.
Game 1: Akuma vs. NAVI - 4 p.m. (CET)
While Akuma is already under pressure after two defeats and has to hold its own against NAVI, s1mple and his team can go into the duel more relaxed after the win against Nemiga. Given the odds, Akuma is the clear underdog against NAVI. In Group A, however, Gambit, forZe, and NAVI are almost sealed in the race for the promotion spots.
Game 2: K23 vs. Entropiq - 4 p.m. (CET)
The two teams are expected to be on an equal footing, although Entropiq is still the relatively clear favorite. However, the team around veteran AdreN should not be underestimated, even though the last few weeks have been rather mixed. Entropiq won the last direct duel around three weeks ago 2-1.
Game 3: Virtus.Pro vs. Spirit - 7 p.m. (CET)
The first top match of today. Virtus.Pro and Spirit are two of the title contenders. VP had to fight with problems in the last weeks and lost more than disappointingly against 100PG on the first matchday. However, Spirit lost the last two direct games against Virtus.Pro and will try to take revenge for the defeats.
Game 4: forZe vs. Gambit - 7 p.m. (CET)
The second match of the evening will depend on the mood of Gambit. If they have a dominant day, the duel could end relatively clearly and quickly. The Russian top team is currently clearly the best team in the world and has also been in first place in the EsportFire World Rankings for several weeks. ForZe has been convincing in the new year with solid results in the Tier-2 scene.
