Astralis - Latest performance & results
After last year ended great for the Danish top team with a win at the IEM Global Challenge and the first tournament in 2021 was also successful, things didn't really go well for Astralis from February on. A 7-9th place at the BLAST Premier Spring Groups and the elimination in the quarterfinals of IEM Katowice against Virtus.Pro did not meet the high standards of the Danes.
Also at the ESL Pro League, the expectations for the team are high and the competition is fierce. Nevertheless, Astralis is one of the big favorites to fight for the playoff spots. It will also be interesting to see if Bubzkji will get more playing time again or if he will continue to just spectate. Between Astralis and Evil Geniuses, the odds clearly favor the Danes.
Evil Geniuses - Latest performance & results
At the beginning of 2021, Evil Geniuses decided to make a change for the first time after signing the lineup. Ethan had to leave the team and joined 100Thieves as a Valorant player. His replacement will be oBo. The 17-year-old star player, who showed great performances at Complexity last year, returns to the big stage. For him it is the first tournament with his new team.
The new year was somewhat mixed for Evil Geniuses. 5-6th places at the BLAST Global Finals and the DreamHack Open were solid, but do not meet the standards of the top North American organization. At the BLAST Spring Groups they managed to qualify for the finals, but the subsequent performance at the IEM Katowice was not very convincing. In the match with Astralis, Evil Geniuses is the clear underdog given the odds.
