Team Liquid is still struggling to return to its peak form. In the global rankings, they are sitting at number 10, which is not good at all for a former number 1 and number 2 competitor. And not just for a few weeks or months, but for around 2 years. In its recent matches, Liquid got 3 wins and 2 losses. Both of these losses came against Evil Geniuses, while the wins were against 100 Thieves, FURIA, and MIBR. In other words, Liquid seems to be the second-best team in North America at the moment. Their opponent in this match, Gen.G Esports, seems to be the 3rd best team in the region, having victories against a lot of the big names but losing against Liquid in direct confrontations. The most likely result here is a 2 – 1 victory for Liquid.
