In the semifinals of the lower bracket of Group D at the ESL Pro League Season 18 LAN tournament, which takes place in Malta, the Russian team Cloud9 will play against Liquid from the USA.
The Russian team failed in the semifinals of the top bracket of Group D yesterday. In the VO3 Cloud9 format game on two maps, the average American Complexity team lost quite heavily – 13:16 Anubis (the opponent's peak) and 6:16 Ancient. At the same time, on the Cloud9 map in the second half they completely failed for the defense side and did not take a single round.
But the European composition of the American organization yesterday held a fairly simple match in the first round of the lower bracket of Group D. In the match of the VO3 format, Liquid defeated the Chinese team Lynn Vision – 16:9 Anubis (the opponent's peak) and 16:6 Ancient. In this meeting, two players played well as part of Liquid: Bulgarian Rainwaker finished the match with a score of +25 in frags, and Russian player Patsi with a score of +20.
In this match, Cloud9 is considered a clear favorite among bookmakers. However, after yesterday's match, it's hard to believe that Cloud9 will play without problems, and therefore we suggest that you bet more than 67.5 rounds on the total.
