Match prediction

An incredibly interesting European derby awaits us, the interest is enhanced by the conditions in which the teams find themselves, namely the relegation match. In addition, the teams have a fighting draw, each has 3 wins during face-to-face meetings, which means that the match becomes fundamental. On the one hand, Fnatic is the top 2 team in the region, with season averages, on the other hand, Liquid, the top 3 of the region, has the same poor performance. It is difficult to determine the winner, but I will prefer to give my vote to Orange, as they play more consistently.
