Team Liquid: great start
- Current HLTV ranking: #3
- Changes over the last three months: +9
- Best map: Mirage – 100% in 5 maps
- Worst map: Ancient – 50% in 4 maps
Team Liquid is showing a good game after the break. The squad accomplished all the tasks in the BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022, and in ESL Pro League Season 16 the team managed to get their first victory. In their opening match against Movistar Riders, the Liquid won 2-1. YEKINDAR continues to drag his team forward. In the match against the Spaniards, he once again made the most kills on the server. As for maps, there is a high probability that Team Liquid will once again take their choice of Mirage. On this map, the guys have a 100% win rate and a very powerful defense game. In the match against Movistar Riders, the American team took 11 rounds in a row for CT, allowing their opponent only once to get to the bomb setting. Evil Geniuses looks even weaker on the Mirage, and their last face-off ended with a 4-16 defeat of EG. Nothing should change in the upcoming matchup. Team Liquid will confidently win on Mirage.
Evil Geniuses: chances are slim
- Current HLTV ranking: #35
- Changes over the last three months: –
- Best map: Inferno – 40% in 5 maps
- Worst map: –
Evil Geniuses keep losing. After the changes in the lineup nothing has changed. The team is still weak. Yes, the guys had a few victories over the tier-3 teams, but the organization can't return to the previous level. The defeat from Cloud9 in the first match of ESL Pro League Season 16 was not a surprise either. If the worst map of the Russian team was a struggle, on Dust2 EG was able to take only five rounds. As for maps, Evil Geniuses should once again take Inferno. To win is even less likely than in the match with Cloud9, as Team Liquid plays this map stronger than the Russian team. But we don't see any other picks. There's also Overpass, which they in theory can take, but there Team Liquid has looked very good in recent matches, beating NiP and Heroic, so it will be very difficult to win on this map as well.
Teams met each other three times, Team Liquid winning all of them.
