Expert Betting Tips
The teams have not faced off for over a year. Since that time the lineups of both teams have changed, which means the teams meet each other for the first time. Heroic’s captaign cadiaN is incredibly experienced, and most importantly, very stable emotionally. He is able to charge his team without regard to external factors. That means that the support of the hall will not be such a big advantage for FURIA like in the previous matches. And if we exclude this factor, Heroic will be stronger and more experienced than the Brazilians. Nevertheless, FURIA have strongly gained form and are able to play quality CS. We are in for real fight and drama in this match.
