The Danes appeared in Group A of this EPL and played their matches in late August - early September, so refreshing your memory about their path to this stage of the playoffs is worth refreshing. In the first match, Astralis sensationally lost to NIP with a score of 0:2, but having fallen to the bottom net dev1ce and Ko did not lose a match or even a card, alternately defeating the resistance of ORKS (2:0), GamerLegion (2:0) and FURIA (2:0).
After the summer break, the Danes are showing good results. If we take qualification for Gamers8 2023 out of the calculation, where the Red Stars lost in the first fight to SAW in BO1 confrontation, the Danes reached the top-4 in all tournaments: BLAST Premier: Fall Groups 2023, Intel Extreme Masters Cologne 2023, and Pinnacle Cup V. Of all of these tournaments, the one that stands out is the massive and prestigious Cologne.
After qualifying for the EPL playoffs, the Danes did not play anywhere else but systematically prepared for the decisive stage of the tournament in Malta.
The Turkish team made a surprise by knocking Cloud9 and Team Liquid out of the EPL tournament. The Turks are on the move. They played in Group D, whose matches ended last Sunday, so there can be no doubt about their playing condition, but will the team XANTARES be able to continue to surprise in the playoffs?
It's a difficult question because the team is average but defeated two top teams. The Turks are considered the clear outsiders of this playoff match, but Eternal Fire can easily take the map from the Danes. This team should not be written off early, especially since they closed their star opponents with a score of 2:0.
Expert Betting Tips
The Danes are the clear favorites in this confrontation, but it should be remembered that Astralis players have not had game practice for more than three weeks, and Eternal Fire has gained momentum.
