Vitality - Latest performance & results
Vitality is one of the best teams in the world and after their success at the IEM Beijing they had a break of about two weeks to prepare for the BLAST Fall Finals.
With victories in their two opening games against mousesports and Natus Vincere, which ended with a 2-0 advantage for the French, the top team went down as winner in each of their last five games.
Individually, 20-year-old ZywOo, who practically dominated his opponents, continues to be the most convincing player. In the duel with s1mple in the second game at BLAST, Vitality won in two overtimes on Nuke and Dust2. A special highlight among the French is Nivera, who is currently the sixth player to play with the team on Dust2 and Inferno.
BIG - Latest performance & results
BIG is a German top team, the only one at the top of the world and the big surprise at the BLAST Premier Fall. With wins on the first two matchdays against OG and G2 the German pros surprised especially against G2 and won the third Map Mirage after a strong CT side.
So BIG is still in the upper-bracket and has now two chances to get into the final game. Flashpoint 2 was the team's replacement for the DreamHack Winter, but with two defeats BIG was already out of the tournament after two matchdays. Disappointing.
Individually outstanding for the German top team is XANTARES, the young Turkish star player convinces with great mechanical skills and fits better and better into the team. All in all, he is the only player of the BIG Clan who consistently performs well. Between Vitality and BIG, Vitality is the clear favorite in view of the odds.
Vitality vs. BIG - Map-Veto prediction
Both teams ban Train by default. Between Vitality and BIG is the tip regarding the maps on Dust2 and Mirage. Nuke could also be a pick from BIG. Both Nuke and Inferno are conceivable as decision maps.
Vitality vs. BIG - Prediction
Between Vitality and BIG, not only the odds, but also all the preliminary reports prefer the French. Anything but a clear victory on the part of the favorite Vitality would be a big surprise. The success against G2 will have given BIG a further boost, but all in all a top performance in the duel with Vitality will not be enough.
Due to the low odds, we would bet between Vitality and BIG with a stake of 3 units on a 2:1 French side.
Winner bet: Vitaltiy
