Players: Bad luck in the EPL
Players only managed to finish 9-12th in ESL Pro League Season 15, which is a disappointing result, but if we look a little deeper, we can see that it's not all bad. The team finished second in the group stage, winning four matches out of five. That's a good result, followed by their only playoff loss to FaZe Clan. Had the Russian team met someone else, they might well have fought for the grand final.
As for the maps, the bo1 Players are sure to ban Nuke and Inferno. The third ban would be Mirage or Overpass. On any of the remaining maps, the Russian team will feel very confident. To be honest, Players looks much stronger than their opponent and should beat them on any map. All the more so as Players' two weakest maps will be banged up. It's not obvious what Sangal can gain from this contest.
Sangal: They will gain experience
Sangal is one of the weaker teams in PGL Major Antwerp 2022: Europe RMR Group A. The team sits at number 59 on the HLTV ranking and is coming to this tournament in large part to gain experience. It's hard to imagine Sangal making it to the majors. From recent results, it is difficult to single out anything serious. A 0-3 defeat by K23, an 8-16 defeat by NiP Academy. Victories only over very weak opponents that can't even be classified as tier-2. VELOX, ECLOT, Run or Die. I doubt that anyone has even seen these teams' matches. One of the most adequate options for Sangal in this confrontation seems to be Mirage, but whether it will come to this is unknown. Sangal will be very difficult on any map and even 10 rounds look like a miracle for them.
