Head to Head


Team Falcons and Team Liquid have never met before.

Team Liquid Form


Team Liquid have found some serious momentum over the last few months. Even though they've not won any major tournaments, they placed top eight at ESL Pro League Season 19, top six at IEM Chengdu 2024, and they reached the finals of CCT Season 1 Global Finals before travelling to Dallas.

At IEM Dallas 2024, Team Liquid have yet to show anything spectacular. They won their first match against Complexity (13-6), only to lose against 9z Team (1-2) in the upper bracket semifinals. Still, this game comes with an asterisk.

As reported, some of Liquid's players were sick during the match, which – if true – had affect their performance. So even though seeing Liquid lose to an inferior Counter-Strike team doesn't sound too inspiring, they deserve some slack for it.

Team Falcons Form


Team Falcons are struggling to find traction, and based on their recent outings, they've yet to find it. In the first round of the group stage, the Falcons lost to weakened G2 Esports (10-13) and then bounced back with a 2-0 sweep against Monte.

In the match against G2 Esports, Falcons were in an excellent spot to come out ahead, but they then made some critical mistakes – which isn't really an excuse for their defeat as much as it's a worrying sign. Against Monte, the Falcons performed better, but it's easy to look good against a weaker opponent.

Verdict

Team Liquid are priced as healthy favourites for this match, suggesting that the community believes they can do better than what they've shown so far this tournament. That's fair, but I would still be cautious about trusting Liqud too much.

Team Falcons' recent outings were anything but great, yet this is still a strong team that is bound to start playing better at some point. While Falcons look weaker than Liquid on paper, they are strong enough to force a close series.
