Counter-Strike bookmakers have Astralis priced as 1.25 favourites to defeat SAW, who enter the match as 3.75 underdogs. Considering what Astralis have shown this season, that’s a fair offer.

  • Astralis placed top-four in their last four tournament appearances
  • SAW have not won a tournament since February
  • Astralis (#7) are higher-rated than SAW (#28)

Head to Head


SAW and Astralis have yet to meet in 2024.

SAW Form


SAW are the current 28th-highest rated Counter-Strike esports team in the world, which isn’t great, but fair. They’ve not won a single tournament since February when they claimed a title at RTP Arena Cup 2024. 

Since competing at the PGL Major Copenhagen 2024 (17th-19th), SAW attended two more S-Tier tournaments, the ESL Pro League Season 19 and CCT Season 1 Global Finals, but haven’t accomplished much in either, placing 17th-20th and ninth-12th.

To make matters worse, SAW also haven’t come close to winning RES European Masters Fall 2024 and ESL Challenger League Season 47: Europe. Form-wise, SAW are not in a good spot, with just three wins from the last six series – all of which came against weaker teams.

SAW Squad & Team News


No changes for SAW.

Astralis Form


Astralis have recently found momentum and reached the semifinal in four straight tournaments, including Intel Extreme Masters Chengdu 2024, ESL Pro League Season 19, CCT Season 1 Global Finals, and YaLLa Compass 2024.

Even though Astralis fell short in all four tournaments, they performed admirably well and put up a respectable fight in all four semifinals. Form-wise, Astralis slowed down a bit lately, with three wins from their last seven series, which includes two consecutive losses against The MongolZ and Natus Vincere.

Verdict

SAW are priced as massive underdogs against Astralis, which sounds about right. Even though Astralis’ win rate over their last seven series isn’t great, they had to play tough opponents over that stretch – who are all much stronger than SAW.

Even though Astralis weren’t known for their consistency, they really shouldn’t be struggling to defeat SAW, who have recently lost against the likes of 3DMAX, SINNERS Esports, and 9Pandas.
