Esports bookmakers have Team Falcons priced as 1.66 favourites to defeat Eternal Fire, who enter the match as 2.10 underdogs. Eternal Fire looked good in the Play-In stage, so perhaps they can do some damage on Saturday; however, individually, Team Falcons look like a stronger side.

Head to Head


Eternal Fire and Team Falcons have yet to meet with their current rosters.

Team Falcons Form


Team Falcons rebuilt their lineup a couple of months back and debuted at BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024, where they didn't accomplish much. With one victory against OG and two defeats against Astralis and Team Vitality, Team Falcons crashed out of the tournament early, which inspired little confidence that they could do well at IEM Katowice 2024.

On a more positive note, Team Falcons did take a map from the current no.1 team, Team Vitality. But even that is hardly worth celebrating, considering Vitality didn't perform well in Denmark. 

This is still a very stacked roster which simply haven’t found traction yet, but until the Falcons start showing something, it's tough to feel optimistic about them.

Eternal Fire Form


Eternal Fire haven't accomplished much over the last few months. They did well in a couple of smaller events, such as PARI, Pleaser, and ESL Challenger at DreamHack Winter 2023, where they won a silver medal, and in January, placed second at PGL Major Copenhagen 2024: European Qualifier B.

Those are not exceptional results, but at least Eternal Fire entered IEM Katowice 2024 in good form, and continued posting solid results. They crushed BetBoom Team and Rebels in the Play-in stage, but it remains to be seen how they'll do against a stronger opponent in Team Falcons.

Verdict

Team Falcons have a much higher ceiling and are individually better than Eternal Fire. However, their form is concerning, and they have only a handful of games since the roster was formed, which might explain their less-than-convincing results.

This is still the Falcons' game to lose, but they have to show something before they become an appealing pick at the current Counter-Strike odds.
