BO1 - 23 Jul - 17:00
Race for play-off is still going in this summer split ! We have a very important game here between the French org Vitality (5-8 standing 6th alongside Astralis) and Misfits Gaming (9-4 standing third). MSF is pretty sure to be part of the playoff while Vita seems to have the weapons to make it, but they need to score points and fast.
These Odds are too much favouring MSF here and on my opinions. Yes, they had a very good split so far, but they seem to be slacking a bit. The win they had over G2 was more of a mistake from G2 than anything else, and they have been losing to Astalis after that. On the other side of the rift, Vitality look like a strong opponent with a bad start, and some serious endgame issues. Observers and scrims result are showing that Vita is in a good shape a should challenge the top team (Rekkles have been talking about that in interveiw) So for this game I would bet that the best of the "bad" teams will beat the worst of the good teams (in terms of current shape not standings). For me, the Bookies could be wrong here and relies on the standings a bit too much. Risky bet, but for me, Vitality will win this.
