MIBR - Latest performance & results
MIBR changed their active lineup once again at the beginning of the year and signed the players of BOOM Esports. Even though the team was able to show good performances in their first appearances, MIBR has not been convincing so far considering the results. At cs_summit 7, the team was eliminated early with 1-2 losses to Heroic and Cloud9. However, both games were solid and gave hope for more good performances.
At the BLAST Spring Groups, the Brazilian lineup had tough opponents in NAVI and Liquid and was ultimately eliminated from the event with a score of 0:2. All in all, the team could not pass the first endurance tests and had a hard time at the IEM Katowice Play-Ins. The opening match against Liquid was lost with 12:16. Thus, MIBR is the clear underdog in the duel with fnatic, given the odds.
fnatic - Latest performance & results
Fnatic played an incredible tournament at cs_summit 7 and only lost in the final match against Virtus.Pro. New signing Jackinho, who replaced flusha, showed solid performances and seems to integrate well into the lineup. The team had about two weeks to prepare for the Katowice 2021 Play-Ins. All in all, however, the team was weak in the opening duel and could not convince.
The Swedish team went into the duel with OG and Aleksib as clear favorites. On Overpass, which is a traditionally good map for JW and Co, fnatic had no chance. After an intermediate comeback in the middle of the map, the team finally lost with 09:16 and has to play in the lower-bracket from now on. In the duel with MIBR, fnatic is the clear favorite in view of the odds. The Brazilians have not been able to win against any top team so far.
