FURIA - Latest performance & results
FURIA is currently the only Brazilian team at the top of the world and was able to celebrate many successes and tournament victories, especially at the beginning of the online phase in their region NA. Their return to Europe went quite well in the beginning, but faltered a bit in the last few match days.
FURIA lost four of their last five matches, including duels against NAVI, Astralis and G2, most of them quite clearly. There is little left of the great confidence in their own strengths. The self-evidentness, on which FURIA's game philosophy lives, has disappeared a bit.
Between FURIA and Heroic, the odds narrowly favor the Danish top team. However, after a break of about two weeks, they also came back to the server anything but sovereign. More on that in a moment, though.
Heroic - Latest performance & results
The duel with FURIA will be another difficult task for Heroic after yesterday. Against Liquid, the team was not very convincing despite about two weeks of break and preparation time. With a weak T-side on Inferno and a somewhat unfortunate loss on their map pick Nuke, the team around IGL cadiaN lost 2-0 in their opening match of the IEM. Thus, the statistics of the Danes in terms of past games also look unconvincing. Despite winning only two games from the last five encounters, the Danes have a narrow lead in the duel FURIA vs Heroic in terms of betting odds. The spectators can expect an exciting duel for elimination in Group B.
FURIA vs. Heroic - Map-Veto prediction
While both teams have chosen Dust2 as the ban, between FURIA and Heroic the tip regarding the maps is Inferno and Nuke. Mirage is well conceivable as the decider.
FURIA vs. Heroic - Prediction
In the duel FURIA vs Heroic it is difficult to pick one of the two teams. Due to the fact that the Danes were particularly weak on Inferno in the duel with Liquid and FURIA is still one of the absolute world leaders on this map, we prefer a tip on FURIA. However, the recent weak performances of both teams make the game relatively unattractive and difficult to predict. High risk, high reward due to the balanced high odds.
