Astralis and Torpedo Gaming are matched up against each other in the Counter Pit LAN finals to be held on the 17th of March 2016 at 16:45 CET.
Astralis are one of the top four teams in the world right now. They have been performing well securing a perfect 5-0 in their last LAN at Katowice. Australis did lose to Fnatic in the semi-finals, however there are only few teams that can stand up to Fnatic right now. Astralis have a very deep and strong map pool and Cobblestone and Cache are the only weak links. However out of the remaining 5 maps, they are strong on almost each and every map. This match is Astralis’ match to lose as they are strong favorites to win.
Torpedo qualified for the Counter Pit LAN finals after topping the group stage of the online Qualifiers. The qualifiers consisted of some crowd favorites such as Vexed, Orgless, ENCE and Copenhagen Wolves.
However Torpedo are no match for Astralis who are in a league of their own. This a best of three match therefore the chances of upsets are really low. Torpedo should take this match as a learning experience to improve their gameplay.
The Prediction : 80%-20% Astralis
The Bet : High on Astralis.
