FaZe - Latest performance & results
FaZe Clan will compete for the first time with karrigan
as IGL after the lineup change at Katowice. Already at the BLAST Group Stage, the team showed a great performance despite long time stand-in Olofmeister and successfully qualified for the Spring Finals. Already last week karrigan
allegedly had some input regarding the match plan and trained together with his new teammates. The community is eagerly awaiting the first performances of the new lineup. Between FaZe and Liquid, the odds rightly favor the new lineup.
For Finn it is the return to his old organization and the next attempt to reach his self-proclaimed big goal to win a major. With Twistzz and Twistzz two young top players are integrated in the lineup. coldzera , rain and karrigan add the necessary experience. All in all, with this promising mix, FaZe Clan might have finally found the consistent top lineup the organization has been looking for since the beginning.
Liquid - Latest performance & results
The North American top team also had a player change recently. Instead of Twistzz
, who moved to FaZe, Liquid signed FalleN
, who will fill the role of both IGL and main AWP. After major problems at the BLAST Spring Groups, where the team failed to qualify for the Spring Finals due to two losses to FaZe Clan, Liquid showed some solid performances at the play-ins for IEM Katowice 2021. With 2-0 and wins against MIBR
, the team secured a place in the main competition and thus remained undefeated.
Between FaZe and Liquid, the odds give the European mixed team a slight favorite role and rightly so in view of the two victories at BLAST. The FaZe Clan, together with stand-in olofmeister , won both matches 2:0 and showed unbelievably strong performances, especially on the second maps. Together with karrigan as IGL, a further increase in performance on the part of FaZe is to be expected, and FalleN has so far simply not been able to contribute enough to the game, especially as main AWP.
FaZe vs. Liquid - Map-Veto prediction
Vertigo and Train are pretty much set as bans. Between FaZe and Liquid, the tip regarding the maps is Nuke and Dust2. The pick on the part of the North Americans is difficult to predict and will also be a challenge for the team themselves. As a decider, Inferno would be conceivable.
FaZe vs. Liquid - Prediction
In view of the last duels and the great form of the team around IGL karrigan, we put our bet on the favorite between FaZe and Liquid. We expect a strong performance of the new lineup and see a stake of 8 units as appropriate. The bookmakers offer odds around 1.75 on a victory of the FaZe clan.
