FURIA is the best Brazilian CS:GO team and has repeatedly defeated MiBR in their recent matches. This local derby match will see the two teams compete against each other once again. FURIA has defeated MiBR in their last four meetings and they look to do the same here in this affair..
MiBR has struggled to find its own identity. The Brazilian roster recently changed its coach as they parted ways with long-time coach, Zews. However, they now had Dead as their coach, and he brings a new playstyle to the team. Dead can help in developing the team chemistry and bringing out the best in the players. The players have shown signs of hope as well, and a few individual plays from the players generate hope for Brazilian players. However, it is also true that MiBR is no longer the best Brazilian CS:GO team. FURIA’s players have been in excellent form and have repeatedly outclassed MiBR.
