Liquid - Latest performance & results

Liquid is a American top-team that has had a rather disappointing year. Numerous quite good performances in their region North America during the online phase were not rewarded with tournament wins. Numerous second places, mainly due to defeats against FURIA, are on the books.

Liquid's last tournament win was around 1 1/2 years ago and was the end of a historically good 2019. The team won a total of 22 bo3 games in a row at that time, but then ultimately lost the Berlin Major quarterfinals.

Individually, NAF as well as EliGE and Grim performed well, but the team has not really been able to convince since their return to Europe. At DreamHack Master Winter, the team lost both opening matches 2-0 in duels with mousesports and Astralis.

Heroic - Latest performance & results

Heroic is one of the big surprises in 2020. The young Danish team around the experienced IGL cadiaN convinced to the fullest and has been playing among the absolute world's top teams for months.

However, it was not enough to qualify for the BLAST Fall Finals. Thus, the Danes had about two weeks to prepare for their duel with Liquid since their elimination in the quarterfinals of DreamHack Winter.

Heroic's last game against a real top team was almost a month ago and took place during the IEM Beijing-Haidian. Therefore it is very difficult to estimate the current form of the Danes.

Liquid vs. Heroic - Map-Veto prediction

While Liquid bans Train by default, Heroic decided against Dust2 when choosing their map tool. This circumstance favors the Danes in points of map veto. Picks between Liquid and Train could be Nuke and Vertigo. Mirage could well be the decider.

Liquid vs. Heroic - Prediction

The assessment in the duel Liquid against Heroic is very difficult. Both teams had a relatively long preparation time before this match and will come to the IEM Global Challenge changed both as a team and individually.

However, Liquid has not given any reason to favor them in this duel since their arrival in Europe. Especially the clear defeats in the duels with mousesports and Astralis were not very convincing.

Winner bet: Heroic
