Match prediction

So far, the most interesting match since the start of the playoffs, where both teams are strong and there is no clear favorite. The Brazilians showed an average performance from the beginning of the season, winning only a silver medal at the Masters Reykjavik. Representatives of Korea cannot even boast of such a result, both Masters for them ended in 5-6th place. The difference between the teams is only in experience, and here the advantage is for DRX, whose members previously played in full for Vision Striker. In any case, the match promises to be very exciting, and at any moment one of the teams can seize the initiative, but my vote is for DRX.

Outcome: DRX victory

At the moment, the majority of bookmakers unanimously see the team LOUD as the favorite of the game with average odds on a victory in the sum of 2.006. DRX chances to prevail are evaluated with average odds 2.988 by bookmakers.
