Match prediction

The long-awaited meeting promises to be very interesting. For me personally, the participation of LOUD in the grand finals is a very pleasant surprise, as it assumed their elimination from DRX in the first round of the playoffs. Now the Brazilians have grown a lot compared to the last Masters Copenhagen, where they were in the role of a punching bag, and finished the tournament in 11-12th place. On the other hand, OpTic, the team became my personal favorite after the 1st round of the playoffs, when all Europeans fell into a loser, and so far it fully justifies its title. Yes, victory is often given to them with difficulty, and it drags on for 3 or even 5 maps, as it was yesterday against DRX, but the team confidently uses the opponents' problems, in particular, the Pearl map. It's hard to pick a winner as it's a 5 map game and there's a lot of pressure on the players, but I'm going to hazard a win for OpTic Gaming.

Outcome: victory for OpTic Gaming

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 1.514. OpTic Gaming chances to prevail are evaluated with average odds 4.533 by bookmakers.
