Match Prediction: Copenhagen Flames - Movistar Riders | CS:GO

Copenhagen Flames and Movistar Riders will meet as part of the opening match of the OMEN WGR European Challenge 2023 group stage. I think that many will agree with one fact: the Spaniards are complete darkness and horror.

In turn, the Danish team approaches the championship with a streak of seventeen victories in a row, which is hardly surprising. Therefore, here I am all for Copenhagen Flames, because even in BO1 I don’t believe in the rotten Spaniards from Movistar Riders.

Shape of Copenhagen Flames

The 24th team of the world ranking closed the last season strongly, having obtained victories in the CCT Central Europe Series #3, European Development Championship Season 6, Global Offensive Champions League Season 3 and CCT Central Europe Series #4.

Moreover, the Danish team managed to beat not just TIER-2 opponents, but also more serious teams than Copenhagen Flames itself is. Here we can recall the victory over Astralis, which did not read logically at all.

In general, the Danes were quite good, and I believe that the guys will be able to start the new season at the same pace.

Copenhagen Flames latest results:

  • Victory over K23 with a score of 2:0.
  • Victory over ESTOWNIA with a score of 2:0.
  • Victory over ECLOT with a score of 2:0.
  • Victory over HAVU with a score of 2:0.
  • Victory over Astralis with a score of 2:1.

Best maps of Copenhagen Flames:

  • Nuke - 89% of wins.
  • Vertigo - 86% of wins.
  • Ancient - 80% of wins.
  • Inferno - 73% of wins.
  • Overpass - 62% of wins.

I believe that the Danish team will continue to refuse the Mirage card.

Movistar Riders Uniform

The 29th team in the world ranking has lost absolutely everything you can imagine. Moreover, Movistar Riders burned at every championship and in every match, and with different opponents.

As a result, the Spanish team reached such an extent that they consistently lost to rivals like ECLOT and Sangal. And then I'm tired of talking about how bad the team is. But the guys are playing - the flag is in their hands.

Movistar Riders latest results:

  • Defeated by SAW with a score of 1:2.
  • Lost to BLUEJAYS with a score of 0:2.
  • Defeat from forZe with a score of 1:2.
  • Lost to Sangal with a score of 0:2.
  • Defeat from ECLOT with a score of 0:2.

The best maps of Movistar Riders:

  • Inferno - 50% win rate.

In turn, the Spanish team will most likely ban the Anubis map.

Prediction for Copenhagen Flames vs Movistar Riders

I don’t think that we will be able to see a sensation here, because according to the game that the Spaniards had before, there were no prerequisites foreseen at all. In turn, Copenhagen Flames closed the last season strongly, showing a really strong game.

So Movistar Riders even in BO1 have very meager chances, especially since, according to statistics, the guys are completely out. Therefore, in this case, I would recommend betting on the victory of the Copenhagen Flames team.

All bookmakers have agreed that Copenhagen Flames is the favorite. This can be noticed because odds on them are 1.973. This number in the favor of Movistar Riders amounts 2.183. Respectively, the last ones are the underdogs of the upcoming match.
