Judging by the firepower and recent statistics, Team Liquid are the clear favorites to win the match against their LATAM opposition. The EMEA side have some exciting talent and experienced players in their squad. Players like Elias "Jamppi" Olkkonen, Travis "L1NK" Mendoza and most importantly, Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom in the squad, Team Liquid have a higher chance of winning the game.

However, KRU Esports also have some highly talented players who can single-handedly turn the tide. Players like Nicolas "Klaus" Ferrari, Angelo "keznit" Mori and Juan Pablo "NagZ" Lopez have the potential to spoil the party of any team in the competition. Their previous experience of LAN events at VCT Masters Reykjavik and VCT Masters Berlin will surely help them in this competition.
