Astralis Overview

Astralis vs Fiend Prediction

Astralis regained their face when they won absolutely in the group stage of IEM Europe. Entering this quarter-final their opponent is not too difficult as just a Fiend. However, experts believe that Astralis will not have an easy victory. Fiend also has a lot of cards in hand with a very high win rate.

Fiend Overview

Astralis vs Fiend Prediction

Fiend got off to a bad start in Group D when losing the first 2 matches in a row. But with 4 consecutive wins then Fiend won 2nd place in Group D well. Although there are quite a few maps with a high win rate. It is too difficult for Fiend to overcome Astralis who is in sublime form. Most likely they still have an honorable victory but a final victory is impossible.

Astralis vs Fiend Prediction

To respond to Nuke will be Fiend’s pick in their ban, not only because Astralis shoots well on this map but Fiend also doesn’t perform well when 13 shots, only winning 38%. With the above bans, it is likely that the two teams will get their own satisfactory choices. With Astralis it is Overpass where they have a stable performance and Fiend will most likely be Ancient. Not a bad choice.

With choices like this, it goes without saying that the score is 1-1 after the first two games. Both picked maps where the opponent shot pretty badly. They will decide the winner in the 2nd game with the last ban/pick. In the remaining 3 maps, if Fiend can bring back Dust 2, it will be the best but most likely Astralis will prevent this from happening.

Therefore, only Vertigo and Inferno are the only two maps that can be selected. Then Fiend must naturally choose Inferno when they have a better win rate on this map. However, the difference is not too big, so the match can only be assessed as balanced on this map. So remember in terms of people Astralis is still marginally better. 

Talking about Inferno, Astralis is not too familiar with this map. Just a week ago they defeated Movistar Riders right here on this map with a score of 16-13. It can be seen that having to play at the opponent’s forehand will be a big obstacle for Astralis. But this time it is no longer a destructive Astralis but they are gradually becoming a unified block. 

Astralis know how to finish the match in decisive rounds, as long as they are themselves, victory can be within reach. Analysts predict the final score of this match is 2-1 in favor of Astralis.
