MAD Lions have one vacant space available for a player as Lucas “Bubzkji” Andersen is inactive at the moment. However, multiple sources reported that MAD Lions are in discussions with Jonas “Lekr0” Olofsson to cover up that void. If Lekr0 joins MAD Lion, the squad will be full once again.

MAD Lions Squad
MAD Lions first entered CSGO in 2019. The squad is a complete Danish one and Acilion to lead them. The line up would not remain Danish anymore if Lekr0 from Sweden joined the scene. The team might face a communication problem with one member from Sweden and the remaining from Denmark. However, multiple sources say that MAD Lions have no difficulty in communication with Lekr0 joining the squad. If Lekr0 joined MAD Lions, he would be returned to the rifling role.
Not just MAD Lions, several other teams showed their interest in Lekr0 to join them. However, MAD Lions beat them all and appears to be the most compelling contestant to acquire Lekr0’s services.
Lekr0 joined the professional CSGO scene in 2014. Ever since he turned pro, Lekr0 has joined several professional Swedish teams in CSGO. He also played with Fnatic, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and GODSENT. Although his journey with each team tasted success, his Fnatic run overruled all others. Lekr0 witnessed the biggest success in his career with Fnatic when the team won WESG 2017 and IEM Katowice 2018. The better part of these victories is that Fnatic captured these tournaments in a span of two weeks.
Lekr0 also served in Ninjas in Pyjamas as an in-game leader. From mid-2018 to May of 2020, Lekr0 contested with NIP. During this time, he became an in-game leader for a significant amount of time as well.
MAD Lions History and Run
MAD Lions have turned into a very strong team as they are the champions of FLASHPOINT Season 1. This became the first time MAD Lions entered into a final since its existence. As MAD Lions captured the final, it became a better history. This only became possible when the organization decided to replace the in-game leader for the squad. MAD Lions replaced Nicolai “HUNDEN” Petersen with Asger “Acilion” Larsen to become the in-game leader for the squad.
MAD Lions witnessed their biggest successes by reaching the semi-finals of different tournaments. The team played three semi-finals before and lost all of them. MAD Lions appeared in the semi-finals of DreamHack Open Sevilla in 2019, where they faced defeat from Team North. The team also reached the semis of DreamHack Open Leipzig 2020, where Renegades defeated them 2-1. Similarly, MAD Lions reached the semi-finals of the Ice Challenge 2020, where they lost against Team Mousesports as 2-1.
MAD Lions are becoming stronger every day. The total Danish squad is now reaching to the higher positions in the tournaments. The arrival of a Swedish player, Lekr0, could prove very beneficial for the team.
