EnVyUs and Astralis are matched up against each other in the ESL Pro league Season 3 Match to be held on the 12th of March 2016 at 19:00 CET on the map of Inferno.
EnVyuS have made their name on Inferno by consistently defeating the best teams in the world. They have a very unique CT side by taking full control of the apartments section early on in the round, they then fall back to more passive positions or just decide to give their opponents other sections of the map and play for the retake. This type of play gives them a huge informational advantage as to the positioning of the enemy team. However the drawback for EnVyUs is that they have a new addition to the team. Devil has been in the team for 2-3 days and while Inferno is a very common map, playing and adjusting according to the style of the other four players may prove difficult.
The raw aim of EnVyUs is their advantage in this matchup. They have almost always been the team that can counter Astralis. Even when Astralis were in their peak form, they would find it difficult to take down EnVyUs.
In the league table, Astralis are situated comfortably at the number two position behind NIP however the team have not had much success in 2016 just yet losing both their maps to Fnatic. The only times they have won on Inferno was against Gamers2 and Faze. Gamers and Faze have been in slumps and Astralis’ victory over them does not mean all that much. Astralis themselves have been looking good, however they have not played Inferno very often especially after their rebranding from TSM to Astralis, the team has been quite inconsistent in their results. However, their latest results however have been quite encouraging. They came out of Katowice 5-0 in their Group stage and right now they are 8-2 in the Group stage of ESL Pro League 3.
The Prediction : 65%-35% EnVyUs
The Bet : Low on EnVyUs
