BIG vs Cloud9 (18:00 CEST, Oct. 8)


BIG advanced through the bracket into one of the last CS:GO tournaments Grand Final in dominant fashion, not dropping a single map and conceding 10 rounds at most in the preceding series.

Krimbo has stepped up as the team’s star player in recent months, boasting an impressive 1.46 rating after just two matches in the event so far. He will be looking to carry over his form from the early stages of the competition and be a dominant force on the server in the Grand Final.

The Cloud9 team, sponsored by BC.Game, so far have struggled to live up to their super team reputation.

The IGL swap seems to be paying off so far, as Cloud9’s rise in performance saw them best Movistar Riders and G2 on their way to the Grand Final.

They’ll be keen to advance to the BLAST Fall Finals in Copenhagen since more LAN games in front of a crowd will be invaluable practice for the newly assembled roster.

Despite BIG being the more in-form team at the moment, CS:GO odds have Cloud9 as the favourites to take the win and book themselves a spot in the BLAST Fall Finals.

However, an interesting aspect of this matchup is the fact that both squads perma-ban the same map, Nuke. This could lead to a surprising veto and see both teams forced out of their comfort zone.
