MAD Lions will play with ECSTATIC in the 1/4 finals of Pinnacle Fall Series 3. Who will be stronger?

MAD Lions 

The Lions generally perform well at the end of the year, often reaching the late stages. At the previous tournament, which was the ESL Pro League Season 15 Conference, MAD Lions started with two wins, after which it suffered two losses and took 5-6 places. And before that, the results were better: third place at the DreamHack Open November 2021, as well as second in the framework of FlowFiReLEAGUE 2021 Iberia, the final of which was lost to OFFSET (1-2). 

ECSTATIC

The ECSTATIC team had a difficult time at the Pinnacle Fall Series 3 group stage, which was overcome only thanks to a victory over Team Finest (2-0) in the fifth round match. After that, the Danes confidently performed in the 1/8 finals, where they beat forZe with a score of 2-0. If at its peak ECSTATIC won only on the extra rounds - 19:16 on the Einstent, then it played much better on the opponent's choice, taking 2 with a score of 16:10. 

Forecast

Both teams are playing well at the end of the year, striving to break into the top twenty. In a face-to-face confrontation, I suggest betting that there will be a third card, since both MAD Lions and ECSTATIC mostly win at their peaks.
