Team Liquid and G2 will play in the group stage of BLAST Premier Fall Finals 2022. Does anyone else remember G2, who didn't play for a whole month and started rebuilding their roster again?
In turn, the North American team failed at the Major, where they did not even make it to the playoffs. It is clear that two factors became the reasons for this result: the actual absence of YEKINDAR and a weak sniper.
Now we will look at the face-to-face meeting of two unstable teams. Personally, I have a feeling that G2 has had a good practice, but you should not expect a momentary surge.
As for Team Liquid, the team will continue to stick to the previous plan, which will probably work. However, the fact that NiKo and company performed terribly at the RMR tournament gives me the right to choose in favor of the North Americans.
Form Team Liquid
The ninth team of the world ranking became the winner of the IEM Road to Rio 2022 Americas RMR, where they still played not the first number in some places, but the result is the result.
However, at the last IEM Rio Major 2022, the North Americans had a failure. At first, Team Liquid lost devastatingly to MOUZ, although then they got two victories in BO1.
But in general, liquid ones failed, as the two final losses against Heroic and Team Spirit lowered expectations a little. And yet, starting from the opponent, Team Liquid is doing even better.
Latest Team Liquid results:
- Lost to MOUZ with a score of 2:16.
- Victory over Sprout with a score of 16:5.
- Victory over NAVI with a score of 16:14.
- Defeat from Heroic with a score of 1:2.
- Defeat from Team Spirit with a score of 1:2.
The best maps of Team Liquid:
- Mirage - 83% of wins.
- Dust 2 - 75% win rate.
- Inferno - 75% of wins.
- Ancient - 75% of wins.
- Overpass - 50% of wins.
Let's not forget that the North American team is ditching the Nuke map.
The twelfth team of the world ranking reached the semi-finals of ESL Pro League Season 16, where, in general, they looked very worthy and did not cause unnecessary questions.
However, after G2 failed at the IEM Road to Rio 2022 Europe RMR A, where they started with the defeat of ECSTATIC, but ended with three losses from Cloud9, 1WIN and GamerLegion.
Then the European team went on vacation, not forgetting about the next permutations. As a result, the team goes to Copenhagen without a coach, although he was not seen before. In general, there are a lot of questions about G2, although the guys practiced a bit before the start of BLAST Premier Fall Finals 2022.
Latest G2 results:
- Defeat from Vitality with a score of 0:2.
- Victory over ECSTATIC with a score of 16:0.
- Defeat from Cloud9 with a score of 13:16.
- Defeat from 1WIN with a score of 13:16.
- Defeated by GamerLegion with a score of 1:2.
Best G2 Maps:
- Ancient - 80% of wins.
- Vertigo - 80% of wins.
- Dust 2 - 60% of wins.
- Mirage - 50% of wins.
- Inferno - 50% win rate.
In turn, the G2 team has not played on the Overpass map for a long time.
Statistics of meetings Team Liquid — G2
As part of the current season, the teams held three meetings:

- G2's victory at PGL Major Antwerp 2022 Challengers Stage with a score of 16:6.

However, enough time has passed since then, especially since the last BO3.
Prediction for the match Team Liquid — G2
Perhaps it makes sense to believe in three cards here, since the teams with their own problems and without a clear picture. However, I have a little less faith in G2, thanks in part to the failure at the IEM Road to Rio 2022 Europe RMR.
In turn, the North American team failed at the Major, but at least had playing practice and did not change anything in its composition. Therefore, in this case, I would recommend betting on Team Liquid to win.
All bookmakers have agreed that Team Liquid is the favorite. This can be noticed because odds on them are 1.711. This number in the favor of G2 Esports amounts 3.767. Respectively, the last ones are the underdogs of the upcoming match.
