LG vs Liquid – Overpass
Liquid and LG are matched up against each other in the ESL week 1 Group stage match on 12th February 2016 at 04:00 CET
LG definitely have been looking really good since November. They have had several wins against some of the best teams in the world. Reaching the finals of Starseries definitely helped improve their image. One thing about LG is that they are really good in their default setups. They rarely lose advantageous situations due to tactical blunders. Their team is tight knit and communication is one of the best factors about their team. Overpass has been really good for LG. Their previous four matches have been wins for them against some of the best teams in the world.
Liquid have hardly played Overpass for quite sometime. Their Overpass matches were mainly in November 2016. Now they have the addition of Simple in the team. Simple definitely is a very good player and it seems his chemistry with Hiko is really good. Hiko had stood in for Flipsid3 back in 2015. However now it’s the other way round. Simple has been just ok in the team.With repeated failures, we might see his arrogant nature come to the forefront. Arrogance definitely will see the deterioration of the team. However all in all, Liquid hardly play Overpass while LG recently demolished Tier one EU teams on Overpass.
The Prediction : 73%-27% LG
The bet : Medium on LG
