OG will face off with Team Liquid in the match of the 1st round of the IEM Winter 2021 group stage. We analyze the form of the teams and give a forecast. 

OG

OG was pleasantly surprised at ESL Pro League Season 14, managing to get to the 1/2 finals, where she lost to Team Vitality on two maps. However, the happiness did not last long, because already at the next tournament, at BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2021, the team failed, failing to overcome the barrier in the form of a group stage - lost 1-2 to Natus Vincere and FaZe Clan, taking 10-12 places. After that, there was 11th place at IEM Fall 2021 Europe, and 3-4 at BLAST Premier Fall Showdown 2021. 

Team Liquid

If Team Liquid approached PGL Major Stockholm 2021 in the status of one of the favorites, and she was predicted to be at least in the top 4, then after participating in the tournament, the attitude towards the team changed. Firstly, the "liquid" won only one victory in four matches at the Major, and secondly, they showed a low level of play, and the occupied 12-14 places became an absolutely deserved result. Thoughts about the decline were reinforced after the participation of Team Liquid at the BLAST Premier Fall Final 2021, where she played three matches, and won only one. 

Forecast

OG performs very unstable. Then he will get to the semifinals in the Pro League, then he will not get out of the group in the Blast. However, in the reported confrontation, valde and the company should win, since Team Liquid does not even have short-term outbreaks, and recently there have been only one failures.
