Sangal Esports vs HEET

Predictions: HEET to win

Odds: 1.45

Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.BET Esports

When: December 6, 2022 – 20:00 CEST

Sangal Esports, which has been making waves with its recently formed roster and the tournaments it has participated in, is entering the last period quite out of form. They recruited former Ninjas in Pyjamas player phzy 3 months ago. However, despite the new player’s consistent performance, the dynamics within the team have not settled down.

Sangal Esports has only 1 win in the last 10 games. Although they have shown quality performances from time to time, they have been generally inadequate. They have an opportunity to put an end to this bad run. The lower bracket match against HEET will determine whether they advance in this tournament or not.

K23 vs Permitta

Predictions: K23 to win

CS:GO Odds: 1.75

Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.BET

When: December 6, 2022 – 20:00 CEST

Russia-based K23 will continue its busy match schedule with the ESL Challenger League Season 43 Europe Lower-Round 1 match. The team, which participated in various small and large tournaments during the year, could not find the success they wanted. After these results, they changed their roster just 12 days ago.

Jyo, iDISBALANCE and def1zer became the new members of the roster. Even though it has been a very short time, K23 has played 4 matches with their revamped roster and managed to win two of them. They also seem to have a slight edge over Permitta. The Poland-based team is still very fresh. 1 month ago the roster was completely changed and since then they have played only 4 matches. They won two of them and lost two of them.

CS Predictions9INE to win

Odds: 1.46

CS:GO Betting Site: Odds provided by GG.BET

When: December 6, 2022 – 20:00 CEST

In the most remarkable series of the day, 9INE and ECSTATIK will face each other. 9INE, who had been away from the scene for a long time, returned to the scene in August with a Polish-based roster. In the past, they have always favored young rosters with potential over the big names of the scene, and this time they followed the same strategy. The fact that the squad has risen as high as 37th in the World Rankings shows that this strategy has paid off.

Nevertheless, there are several negatives for 9INE. The first one is that the team’s 5th player is currently unknown. Along with this, the team’s performance has dropped relatively as the end of the year approaches. But the team they are up against is still not capable of giving them a run for their money.

ex-Finest vs Fnatic Rising

CS:GO Predictions: ex-Finest to win

Odds: 1.47

When: December 7, 2022 – 20:00 CEST

If you’re going to pick one match to watch out of the matches starting at the same time, I suggest you choose between ex-Finest and Fnatic Rising. It would be a big surprise for ex-Finest, one of the strongest teams in the Lower-Bracket, to lose this match. 

Although they have suffered back-to-back losses recently, their talent pool is much larger than their opponents and they have what it takes to win the match. 

On the Fnatic Rising side, it is not yet clear who the 5th player will be. Although they have made a change recently, they have not yet found their permanent player. Going into an important match with a new player can be beneficial from time to time, but this match is not one of those times and the chances of young players are very low.
