Match Prediction: Eternal Fire - Bad News Eagles | CS:GO

Eternal Fire and Bad News Eagles will play in the quarterfinals of the CCT South Europe Series #2. Surprisingly, both teams showed a good start in the new season.

It is clear that Eternal Fire played much more matches and clarified its situation more clearly, but Bad News Eagles did not repeat its failures either, having obtained a confident victory the day before.

And yet, given the distance since the start of the season, the Turkish team seemed more logical to me. And if there are no incidents, Eternal Fire should go further.

The 27th team in the world ranking recently won the ESL Pro League Season 17 Conference Europe, where they got three good victories, including over the Danes Sprout.

As for the start to the playoffs of CCT South Europe Series #2, here the Turkish team managed to cope with a difficult opponent represented by Apeks. In general, Eternal Fire looks great so far, but you need to look at the distance.
