Sprout - Latest performance & results
The German Tier-2 team decided to change the active lineup on two positions at the beginning of the year. The two polish players dycha and snatchie were benched and the lineup was changed back to a German full team. The new signings kressy and slaxz both came from ALTERNATE aTTaX and were already well rehearsed. The team started the new year successfully with victories at the UNITED Pro Series Winter and the ESL Championship.
While they finished in a solid 5-6th place at DreamHack Masters, their performance at Snow Sweet Snow 1 was not very satisfying. The European Development Championship 2 has been very successful so far and the entry into the playoffs was sovereign. The team won the first two games against Lyngby Vikings and LDLC. Between Sprout and SAW, the odds favor the German team.
SAW - Latest performance & results
The Portuguese team entered CS:GO at the beginning of 2020 and was able to celebrate their first B- and C-Tier successes at the end of last year. After the failed qualification for DreamHack January and thus a disappointing start into the new year, the team showed a great performance at Snow Sweet Snow 1 and was only eliminated in the semifinals against FunPlusPhoenix. Between Sprout and SAW, the Portuguese are the slight underdogs given the odds.
At the Snow Sweet Snow 2 Cup, the team started with a loss to Young Ninjas in the group stage, but eventually secured advancement to the playoffs. A 2-0 win against TPT and the Revenge against the Young Ninjas made this possible.
