Better, faster, stronger! Who is going to show the best performance in one of the most interesting line-ups of the Play-Off?
The match between the teams qualified to the Champions Stage with 3:1 on the board. In 2021, the Brazilians played 8 maps against Gambit, in 6 of them the CIS team got the victory.
At the end of 2020, few people could even imagine Gambit as one of the main contenders for the Major championship. But during 2021, this CIS team got into more than 10 grand-finals, in most of them they got the victory. Gambit began their journey in the Legend Stage and showed us a decent performance in all their matches. Anyway they didn't manage to qualify without any defeat. Entropiq was the first and only one team to beat Gambit - on Vertigo with a score of 16:14.
The Furia path this year turned out to be difficult. But still, they went immediately to the Legend stage due to their supremacy at IEM Fall 2021 North America. In Stockholm Furia managed to easily reach the Champions Stage, despite losing to Astralis in their first match. It is important to note here that Furia showed some good performance during the tournament, but they have not yet met any main favorites, such as Na'Vi, G2, and finally Gambit.
Map Veto - Which maps might be picked or banned?
Based on the matches played by each of the teams, we can assume that the map pool will be: Overpass, Inferno, Vertigo. Mirage is also might be chosen by each of the teams as their own pick.
