OG - Latest performance & results
OG is an organization founded in 2015, which only entered CS:GO at the end of 2019. The team around Aleksib could not celebrate a real tournament success in their first year, but was close with the second place at Flashpoint 2. The team started the new year with a 5-8th place at cs_summit and finished the group in second place with two wins against Dignitas. Against the Tier-2 team, however, it was only enough for rather tight 2-1 victories both times.
With fnatic and Heroic the team had two meaningful encounters at cs_summit, both of which were lost. Especially the duel against fnatic was very one-sided and in the end a clear 0:2 defeat. Thus, OG was already eliminated in the quarterfinals of the tournament and could not really convince against any tier-1 opponent. Thus, OG is also an underdog in the duel with BIG in view of the odds. However, the German team was not totally convincing in January, but more on that in a moment.
BIG - Latest performance & results
The BIG Clan developed into an absolute world class team in 2020 and will try to maintain this performance in the new year. However, the achievements and especially results so far have been anything but satisfying. After a disappointing defeat at the ESL Championship in the final with Sprout, the DreamHack January was also rather disappointing.
A defeat in the semifinals against Spirit was bearable after a good group phase, but still did not meet the expectations of the German top team. Despite the two slip-ups, the team around IGL tabseN is the clear favorite in this duel with OG. Odds of around 1.60 are available on BIG.
