At the candidates stage of the Elisa Invitational Fall 2022 tournament, the Ukrainian B8 team will play against 777 from Norway.
The Ukrainian team last played on HLTV more than a month ago. The last time B8 performed more or less well in the first open European qualification ESL Challenger Melbourne 2022. The guys reached the 1/8 finals, where in a match of the VO1 format on the Vertigo map they were defeated by the Polish team Anonymous, the meeting ended with a score of 11:16. During this time, two changes occurred in the composition of B8, kr1vda and DemQQ left the team, and alex66 and amster came in their place.
The Norwegian team, in turn, played on HLTV for even longer for the last time. The guys had their last game on June 23 at the Esport Tour 2022 Series 2 tournament. Then in the Group A survival match 777 lost to the BLUEJAYS from Northern Macedonia – 9:16 Overpass (their peak) and 17:19 Mirage.
In this match, B8 is considered a clear favorite by the bookmakers, which is quite fair. The Ukrainian team has a better composition and it is quite capable of beating such an average opponent in a match of the VO3 format. We also suggest you to bet on B8.
