Who will win the sixth game of the VCT Stage-1 Masters Reykjavik?

The match between OpTic Gaming and KRU Esports is a clash of two American continents, given the teams' geographic origin.

Predictions

This elimination between the two is one of the most anticipated, as both the giants faced each other once last year. For which, KRU Esports might be out for redemption after their previous loss.

Both have performed quite poorly in recent performances, making it hard to determine who'll win. However, there is undoubtedly one who seems to show the potential to win and that is OpTic Gaming. The reason is their slightly better performance in the playoffs so far.

Head-to-head

Both the teams have faced off once in the past during last year's Masters event. In this battle, OpTic Gaming came out as winner and the same can be expected this year as well.
