Counter-Strike bookmakers have Team Liquid priced as 1.53 favourites to defeat FlyQuest, who enter the match as 2.37 underdogs. As a higher-rated team, Liquid deserve some respect, but it's easy to ignore just how good FlyQuest have been so far this tournament.

  • FlyQuest continue to exceed expectations
  • Team Liquid didn't look very stable in the group stage
  • Team Liquid are 2.2 from their last four games

Head to Head


Team Liquid and FlyQuest have never met before.

Team Liquid Form


Team Liquid ended the ESL Pro League Season 19 group stage in second place, with wins against FURIA Esports (2-1) and Monte (2-0) and one loss against MOUZ (0-2) in the upper bracket final. Going 2-1 isn't bad, but beating only FURIA and Monte isn't that impressive either.

Team Liquid needed three maps to make it past FURIA, for which they deserve some slack as FURIA are their regional rivals. However, Liquid were also forced into overtime by Monte, which is a good indication of how good Liquid are.

Even though Team Liquid have done well, they would've needed to show more to be considered serious candidates to win the whole thing.

FlyQuest Form


FlyQuest are in exceptional form. They already exceeded expectations by reaching the ESL Pro League Season 19 playoffs, and they built on that success by eliminating BetBoom Team on Tuesday (2-1).

With their victory against BetBoom Team, FlyQuest have improved their ESL Pro League Season 19 record to 4-2. That run includes two defeats against Natus Vincere (0-2) and Heroic (0-2) and wins against BetBoom (2-1), Ninjas in Pyjamas (2-0), and Pera Esports (2-1).

Like Team Liquid, FlyQuest didn't have to defeat any great teams. But they looked very solid in all of their wins, so perhaps they shouldn't be underestimated.

Verdict

Team Liquid might be a better team on paper, but they've not shown much more than FlyQuest so far this tournament. So it's hard to justify saying that they're the stronger team.

FlyQuest also have momentum on their side, and they've – unlike Liquid – played six games this tournament, which has its advantages. Another point we can make in favour of FlyQuest is that Team Liquid aren't the most consistent team, not against stronger teams and even less when faced with weaker opponents.

At best, the two sides should be priced at even money, so it's not hard to decide which team to side with.
