Another ECS Season 6 Europe match is in front of us. G2 will face off against FaZe Clan. Both of these teams have been in a slump lately, and this is the match where one of these two teams will have to step up.
Ever since shox demanded a roster switch, and SmithZz and Ex6TenZ were brought into the squad to replace NBK and Apex, things did not go as planned for French roster. They were not able to win a single tournament with this line-up, and something will probably have to change, or their main AWPer, and best player, could actually leave. G2 is trying to base their game plan on a structured plan, that will eventually lead to an execute on one of the sites. However, they really lack firepower, because SmithZz and Ex6TenZ are kind of old school type of player, they are not really a match for future prospects.
There is a lot of going on in and around FaZe Clan. There are rumors about upcoming roster changes, that would suit them. Ever since Niko took over the in-game leading role, karrigan lost his spot in the team. The main question is, what can karrigan offer to the team if he is not being an in-game leader anymore. Not much in the terms of firepower. The team is in a very big slump at the moment, and they have to start grinding. FaZe tends to play an aggressive, loose style of CS:GO. If they gain momentum, they can stump everyone, as they have proven that in the past.
G2 and FaZe Clan faced each other a lot, 26 times to be more exact. FaZe came up victorious 20 times, which say a lot about this match-up, while G2 only won 6 times. As we all know, they will face off on Inferno, which was a decent map for both of these teams. Between themselves, they played Inferno 5 times. G2 won 3 times, while FaZe managed to edge out 2 victories versus French roster. In their last meeting on Inferno, FaZe Clan got dominated by KennyS alone, who had 30 kills in 25 rounds. Inferno is a hard map for an AWPer because there are so many angles to cover, but this is KennyS, the best AWP player in the world.
Both of these teams are decent on Inferno, however, just because of how good KennyS played in their last match on this particular map I would favor G2 to win this. FaZe and G2 are both in a slump, changing your in-game leader can affect a team, especially a superstar team, where everyone wants to play their own game, without any plan or strategy. Even though it may seem that FaZe enjoys playing versus G2(20-6 head-to-head), I do not think that they are comfortable against French roster on Inferno. To conclude, both of the teams are in pretty bad form, but I think that calls and rotations called by Niko will give a lot of free kills to KennyS.
G2 TO WIN INFERNO – 2.95@betway
