So after seeing the first round of matches of Group A it is only logical to see how Group B will play out. Since it includes teams like ENCE and Fnatic who have displayed some solid performance in the past weeks.
ENCE (3) vs Isurus (40)
This match can be summed up in just one word: #EZ4ENCE. Yet we are not completely removing Isurus out of the equation, since the Argentinian side has shown some impressive performances in the past months. Mayern has been in decent form, and his really needs one good performance in LAN to show that aside from Brazil, another country of SA is capable of competing against the best. We believe that the game could be problematic for ENCE in the early stage. Yet they are more than capable of pulling a solid comeback. Since last time around, they were able to beat the best team in the world, Astralis, in the grand finale of BLAST Pro Series Madrid.
ENCE: 16 – Isurus: 13
Renegades (10) vs G2 (15)
This match is a fight between the AWPers. Gratification had issues to take care of so Renegades will be replacing him with Smooya. Meanwhile, we really don’t know what to say about G2’s Kenny. Since in the past months he has not been the most consistent player. So we will have to wait and see if he can carry G2 or if G2 will carry him. Meanwhile, Renegades have substituted Smooya who has show some decent performances in the past months. It could be enough to carry Renegades to win.
Renegades: 16 – G2: 11
Due to issues with an address update on the ESTA for @denniscsgod, he will be arriving to Dallas later than planned. The address update is subject to a 72 hours approval, which means @pitaCSGO will play the first game with us at @DreamHack Masters Dallas.#GONINJAS #CSGO pic.twitter.com/nrDvdRmTNw

NRG (9) vs Furia (18)
This game has all the makings of a potential upset. So we are quite convinced that Furia is capable of getting the victory. NRG have shown some disappointingly shocking results meanwhile FURIA has achieved first place in the NA MDL standings at 7-2. The NA side have had fair share of problems against team like Complexity. Meanwhile the Brazilians have out played the same opponents. Yuurih, KSCERATO and art have the talent to outplay tarik, Ethan and Brehze. So Furia is quite capable of beating the team that us ranked 9 places above them.
Furia: 16 – NRG: 13
Fnatic (5) vs Cloud 9 (33)
Cloud 9 is really hoping that the new lineup starts to find its way in the competitive landscape. Yet we belive that the side still need time to form game winning chemistry. Meanwhile, their opponents, Fnatic are looking solid. Brollan has shown that he is quite capable of being labeled as one of the most talented CS: GO players. While autimatic has been arguably the best NA player in recent competitions. So in our opinion, Fnatic will completely outplay C9 and will easily advance to the next phase of the upper bracket.
Fnatic: 16 – Cloud 9: 6
