Astralis - Latest performance & results
Probably the most successful team in history, is back in its original lineup after two health-related player resignations. However, they have not yet found their way back to their old, dominant shape.
In both the IEM Beijing-Haidian and the BLAST Premier Fall they already failed in the playoffs. Defeats against G2 and NAVI are on the books in this regard. The last appearance in in the final is already a while behind for the team. Despite the losses the team showed good games as well and is still one of the very best teams.
The weakness on Nuke is especially noticeable at the moment. On the usually strong map for the Danish team they have problems to win lately. For a long time Astralis on Nuke was invincible.
Liquid vs. Astralis - Map-Veto prediction
While Astralis historically always decided against Mirage, Liquid does not play train. Between Liquid and Astralis is the tip regarding the map veto on Dust2 and Inferno. While Liquid chooses Dust2 by default, Astralis has meanwhile turned away from their pick Nuke.
Due to the strong performances of both teams on their picks, a tip on +2.5 Maps between Liquid and Astralis should be considered. Overpass and Nuke would be a good choice as deciders.
Liquid vs. Astralis - Prediction
Between Liquid and Astralis, we put our tip on underdog Liquid with a stake of three units. On Dust2 the team was recently very convincing, while they will have little chance of winning on the map pick of Astralis.
If the duel goes to the third map, both decision maps show a relatively even chance for both teams to win and the odds of 5.0 are considered too high. That is why we have chosen between Liquid and Astralis to bet on 2:1 for underdog Liquid.
