In the next match of the ESEA Premier Season 39 Australia group stage, yellow and Caught off Guard will meet. Which of the neighbors in the standings will be stronger?
Two matches before the end of the group stage, yellow closes the top four with nine points. In the first round, the team lost 0-2 to ORDER, and after that they won three in four games, beating Hazard 2-1, Collateral 2-0 and Apocalypse 2-0. And in the confrontation with VERTEX, the "yellow" were defeated on two maps. To be guaranteed to reach the playoffs, yellow needs to win in the remaining two games, since the gap from the opponent in this match is three points.
Caught off Guard
Caught off Guard failed ESEA Premier Season 38 Australia, losing in all five matches, as a result of which it took 13-14 places. Things are not going well in the ESEA Premier Season 39 Australia group stage, where after four rounds Caught off Guard has two wins with two losses. However, progress is obvious, as we have already managed to get a taste of victories. They were won over Collateral (2-0) and Apocalypse (2-0), and the confrontations with Hazard and FURY were lost - 1:2 and 0:2, respectively.
The teams are roughly equal in strength, and both qualify for the playoffs. A win will increase the chances of getting out of the group, and a loss will seriously complicate the situation. The game is important for both teams, so they will give their best, and therefore I suggest betting that the confrontation will not end after the second card.
