Fnatic and Gambit are matched up against each other in the Group Stage of ESL One Cologne 2016 Quarterfinals on the 8th July 2016 at 20:30 CEST
Fnatic eased past Faze in their elimination match. Their performance against Faze was one which showcased their strengths and they managed to get past their deficiencies. They current FNatic roster looks to have improved in their matches and achieving a near 2015 level dominance. Fnaticś roster is definitely boosted by the return of Olofmeister. He along with the fresh minds of Dennis and the veterans in Flusha and Krimz have been instrumental in Fnatic 2016. Their map pool remains vast mainly carried over from 2015 success.
Gambit reached the playoffs. They are definitely more than satisfied in their performance so far. Their main motto of going to the playoffs is achieved and the achievement now reaches realistic levels where they will not be expecting much. Gambitś main maps include Dust2 and Cobblestone, two maps that are really good for Fnatic. Maybe on Dust2, Fnatic wont be able to perform as well as on Cobblestone, but i don’t expect Fnatic to lose here. This being a best of three match, Fnatic have the advantage as Gambit should not statistically be able to win this match against Fnatic ( mainly due to the bad map pool)
The Prediction : 80%-20% Fnatic
The Bet : High on Fnatic
