OG and North will meet in the upper bracket quarter-final of the cs_summit 6 Europe after both teams qualified from the group stage. The winner will face Vitality or Heroic in the next round. These rivals have never met before.
The European team OG is in an excellent form of six consecutive victories, and they are the favorites in this encounter. OG beat Heretics and BIG in the group phase of the tournament and has a 50.0% win rate over the past three months. When it comes to the maps during the same period, OG is the most successful on Nuke (53.8%), while Overpass (33.3%) proved to be their least favorite map.
North got this far thanks to a couple of wins over Movistar Riders in the group stage, but they have been inconsistent recently. The Danish side won five of the last ten matches and has a 45.5% win rate over the last three months. In that span, North displayed the best performances on Overpass (58.3%), while they have been below average on Inferno (33.3%) and Nuke (38.5%).
I am backing OG to win because they are obviously focused on winning the cs_summit 6 Europe, and destroyed a couple of opponents prior to this match, losing just ten rounds on three maps in the process. The best North can do is to win a map, but considering OG dropped just two maps in the previous 14, I wouldn’t bet on it.
