Sprout and Partizan will play in the first round of the CCT South Europe Series #2 playoffs. A very controversial start of the season from the Danish team, which suffered several unnecessary defeats at once in games against approximately equal opponents.
In turn, Partizan surprised with their strong performance, as this team showed character and clung to each match. Therefore, I think that the Balkan team will be able to compete this time as well, especially since the opponent is not going smoothly.
The nineteenth team in the world ranking had a great start in the recent ESL Pro League Season 17 Conference Europe, having won a confident victory over the Falcons
However, further on the Danish team showed something indistinct, naturally losing to Eternal Fire. However, Sprout's failures did not end there, as the team immediately lost to Endpoint and was eliminated from the tournament.
In general, the guys showed a terrible start, clearly wasting time. And if nothing has changed in a week, then the team can burn out.

At the same time, Partizan made it to the playoffs of CCT South Europe Series 2, and also had a successful start in the Elisa Invitational Winter 2023 Contenders. In general, we have a strong team that will definitely not give up on two maps.

Prediction for the match Sprout — Partizan
At the very least, Partizan has a very strong Anubis map, on which, although they lost, they demonstrated confidence and knowledge of timings. In turn, Sprout obviously did not have the first matches of the season, and it seems to me that the team has clearly overestimated itself over the past year. Therefore, in this case, I would recommend betting on Handicap by cards (+1.5) for the Partizan team.
All bookmakers have agreed that Partizan is the favorite. This can be noticed because odds on them are 2.283. This number in the favor of Sprout amounts 2.97. Respectively, the last ones are the underdogs of the upcoming match.
