PSG.LGD finished 2nd at The International 2018 and 3rd at The International 2019. And the reason why that’s important is simple: their current roster is almost identical to the one that got those results. In 2020, PSG.LGD had a slow start because a few of its members were unavailable and ultimately left the organization. But as soon as the team managed to find good replacements, it started to get top results once again. In the last 6 weeks, PSG.LGD finished 4 times either 2nd or 1st. By contrast, CDEC only made itself noticed once, at ESL One Birmingham 2020, and even then, it got a relatively modest result: 4th place. Based on these statistics, this match should be a very easy victory for PSG.LGD. In fact, unless the team commits a severe error in drafting or execution, the score should be 2 – 0.
