Astralis - Latest performance & results
Astralis is currently on the first place of the EsportFire World Ranking and showed great performances at the IEM Global Finals as well as at the BLAST Grand Final at the beginning of January. The Danish top team also started the new BLAST Premier season as the clear favorite. In Group A, the team had two rather weak opponents in OG and NiP, so they were in fact rather lucky with their draw.
On the first match day, however, everything turned out differently. With two close losses on Inferno and Overpass the Danish top team lost 0:2 against NiP and is now in the lower-bracket and has to play against elimination from now on. Nevertheless, Astralis is the clear favorite in the duel with OG given the odds. All in all, the defeat on the first matchday was disappointing and rather unusual for the otherwise so consistent Astralis.
OG - Latest performance & results
The mixed team of OG lost on the first matchday against BIG Clan and now has to play in the lower bracket against Astralis. All in all a rather unlucky draw for Aleksib and his team. The first round match was also very close, in the end small things decided the 0:2 defeat. In their last tournament, the cs_summit 7, the team won only two duels against Dignitas and lost to both fnatic and Heroic.
The team has now been playing together for over a year under their new organization, but has yet to see any real tournament success. A second place at Flashpoint 2 at the end of last year was the biggest success so far, considering the prize money. In the duel with Astralis, OG is the clear underdog given the betting odds and will have a hard time knocking the Danish stars out of the tournament.
Astralis vs. OG - Map-Veto prediction
The bans are Mirage and Vertigo. Between Astralis and OG, the tip regarding the maps on the part of the Danes is on Inferno. OG also likes to pick this map and could possibly go for Nuke or Overpass in this duel. The map veto is difficult to predict in this matchup, as OG will try to exploit any weaknesses the Danes may have.
