Neither of these teams has looked good recently, but North is still much stronger at every level. Its roster is made up of highly skilled veterans who have achieved a lot more than any of Riders’ players. Furthermore, the last 5 matches of North proved that the team still has what it takes to win the easier encounters, against the likes of Riders. In fact, MSL and his squad managed to beat even mousesports at this tournament. By contrast, Riders is quite inexperienced and in its last 3 matches it became clear that their playstyle got read by the other teams. So I don’t expect North to fail at doing the same thing during their preparation for this match.
