Astralis is coming to BLAST Premier Fall Groups without their captain, gla1ve, and after a disappointing showing in EPL Season XIV. Evil Geniuses, in the other hand, isn't certain about their captain coming either, and isn't in a much better situation. Which team will leave the server with a win?
Albeit Astralis is still a powerhouse of a team, it's undeniable that missing their captain, 'gla1ve', will hurt their chances in BLAST Premier Fall Groups. However, it's also undeniable that this squad could work better than their EPL one did; after all, Xyp9x back, and Magisk is taking the IGL role, while Lucky will certainly be a bit more used to the team at this point.
For Evil Geniuses, though, things are dire. The team still haven't announced the return of their captain, so chances are that they will still play with daps. Even if 'stanislaw' returns, though, EG keeps being too much of an inconsistent team. With CeRq performances failing to impress and oBo not always delivering solid performances, EG will struggle for the foreseeable future.
In this match, we expect to see a strong-enough Astralis to beat EG 2 - 0. After all, EG map pool looks too unreliable right now and Astralis has plenty of power to overwhelm their opponents if it comes to a dispute of firepower.
We expect to see Nuke, Inferno and Dust2 as the maps played.
If you prefer simple betting, or if you play games like fantasy league/
My pick: Astralis
