Historically a really close match. Astralis this lan have been insane and have looked possibly the best out of all teams after LG, Astralis didn’t lose a single BO1 although I do think that their group wasn’t that hard. The only team who should have been able to compete was EnVyUs but after a 12-3 half from Astralis on CT side Train it was more than likely that Astralis would pick it up and become first in this group. Dupreeh and Device seem to be on point and even Xyp9x seems to be showing us where he’s capable of. Cajunb might be the only one who’s a bit falling behind, the man who usually goes nuts against tier1 teams.
Fnatic are just insane. They beat VP with ease earlier this day, the scorelines were closer than the actual match was, Fnatic started trolling on Inferno and did some things they wouldn’t normally do. The thing of Fnatic is that they haven’t had the best performance in the groups, they lost to LG and had a hard time beating Mousesports but did win it in the end. I feel like the win over VP isn’t really a thing that shows how good Fnatic are looking right now, it rather shows how bad VP are. Astralis are way better than VP are right now, so it will most definitely be a challenge.
The most recent H2H was for Fight Night and this was a stomp, Fnatic completely wrecked Astralis on 3 maps who weren’t as close as the scoreline tells us. Cache, Overpass and Train were the maps, surely maps Astralis can play but they still got stomped on it. Fnatic obviously do have the better mappool, the only map they can’t play is Mirage, all the remaining 6 maps are maps they are godlike and maybe even the best in the world on. Astralis are somewhat inconsistent on most maps, one day they shine, the other day they seem shaky. Overall, this is a match Fnatic should take, even though Astralis are looking extremely good, the group they had was more easy than Fnatic’s and looking at that match for Fight Night, I just think Fnatic might 2-0 here. They are just too good right now and are really hunting for that trophy.
My odds for this match: Astralis 35:65 Fnatic
Astralis for me actually so far this tournament has looked the best out of anybody. Fnatic obviously has been good too, and have made it this far, however they have looked human for once, especially during the day of the groups, today they just completely smashed VP. Astralis is the only team that went 5-0 for the groups, and did it rather comfortably. Back in the days, Astralis used to just always beat Fnatic, so not counting them out, however in recent history, it just seems that Fnatic has figured them out and just completely out play them whenever they play, well nor completely, but yeah, come out victorious. This is the semi-finals of the event, and you are going to tell me with a straight face that Astralis will make it out of the semi’s for once? I aint think that. Memes aside, eh I mean, historically this is where Astralis struggle, may it be a mental part or whatever, I’ve no idea however something to keep in mind, and while Astralis choke semi’s, Fnatic always make finals. Here much can just come down to who is landing their shots today, these teams are really close still, and Astralis should not be underestimated here. For me this is a 60-40 in favor of Fnatic, really high risk game, just play the odds here.
2-3% Fnatic if under 66%, otherwise 2-3% Astralis here. Really high risk game, play the odds with a low bet.
My odds = 60-40 Fnatic
My risk = High
My bet = 2-3% Fnatic if under 66%, otherwise 2-3% Astralis
My advice = Same as my bet
My odds for this match: Astralis 40:60 Fnatic
