BO1 - 14 May - 11:15
Right off the bat at the second stage of PGL Major Antwerp 2022, we will be watching a clash between two teams from the CIS region. Cloud9 will be taking on Outsiders in this best-of-one match, and the winner here will be two wins away from playing in front of a crowd.
In Antwerp, fans will finally be able to watch what nafany's Cloud9 is truly able to do when the stakes are higher than ever. Since the start of the year they have been dealing with events outside the game that impacted their performance, but now they are back with an organization backing them, and this should be a big factor impacting their performance here.
Outsiders didn't have the same luck, and their future is still uncertain. While Jame's squad performed better than expected in the previous stage, they struggled plenty still, and we don't see them going far in the Legends Stage at all.
We expect to see Cloud9 winning this series but not without a fight. For that reason, a bet on this game going over 26 rounds is recommended.
If you prefer simple betting, or if you play games like fantasy league/
My pick: Cloud9
