FURIA - Latest performance & results
FURIA played with Stand-In honda last week at the BLAST Global Finals and showed quite solid performances. All in all, however, it was not enough for a win, so the Brazilian team was eliminated from the tournament after two duels against G2 and Evil Geniuses. New signing junior still got passport problems and will also not compete at the cs_summit 7.
In the duel between FURIA and Cloud9, the odds slightly favor the Brazilian top team. However, the last performances were all in all too little. FURIA's young lineup will try to get back on track at cs_summit. While they dominated the online phase in North America in 2020, not much has gone right since their return to Europe. The departure of main-AWP HEN1 did definitely not improve this situation, but replacement honda showed very solid performances so far.
Cloud9 - Latest performance & results
Cloud9, along with Mousesports, is the big uncertainty in this tournament. The announced top team, in which the organizations invested millions, was a big flop at the beginning. The first games were partly disastrous and especially main-AWP woxic was individually on a very bad level. Cloud9 countered apparent disagreements with the Turkish star player by signing the American Xeppaa, who was announced as the new fifth player about a week ago.
How long the team has been training in this constellation is uncertain, but the former Chaos player has probably been in active training for longer than a week. In the duel with FURIA, Cloud9 is the underdog given the odds, but a significant improvement in performance can be expected. The team had enough time to prepare physically as well as mentally for the new season and will come to cs_summit strong.
FURIA vs. Cloud9 - Map-Veto prediction
The map veto between the two teams is very difficult to estimate due to the few maps played on Cloud9's part. However, Dust2 and Train are pretty much fixed as bans. Between FURIA and Cloud9, the tip in terms of maps is Inferno and Nuke. Overpass and Mirage would be conceivable as deciders.
FURIA vs. Cloud9 - Prediction
The spectators can expect an exciting clash between two teams that are difficult to assess and who want to use this tournament to find their rhythm again. Between FURIA and Cloud9 we bet on the underdog Cloud9 and hope for a significant improvement of the team around star IGL ALEX. However, the outcomes of the first matches of this year are difficult to predict, so those who are less risk-averse should still wait with betting.
