Matchförutsägelse: OG - Outsiders | CS:GO

OG and Outsiders will play in the Group B lower bracket semi-finals at IEM Katowice 2023. The winner will advance to the final and compete for a place in the playoffs, while the losing team will fly out of the championship and go to Malta to prepare for the start of ESL Pro League Season 17.

To be honest, it's hard for me to single out the favorite of the meeting, since both teams are equally mistaken and cannot find their game in the long run.

Moreover, you expect quite a lot from Outsiders, but the team sometimes shows such a game as on the Vertigo map that you want to gouge out your eyes and quickly forget about it.

In turn, OG is basically an unstable team, which sometimes clings to important matches, and somewhere loses without a fight, as happened the day before in the game against Heroic.

Therefore, here I would take a closer look at three maps that will certainly meet the expectations of both teams for the game.

Form OG

The eleventh team in the world ranking recently visited BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023, where they played quite well in the group, having suffered only two defeats from FaZe Clan.

However, the European team failed further in the second round of Play-In, where they managed to lose to Astralis, and this despite all the difficulties and problems of the Danes at a distance.

As for the performances at IEM Katowice 2023, everything worked out for OG in Play-In, as the team outplayed Sprout and fnatic. But in the group, ruggah's guys bounced off MOUZ, and then without any struggle lost to Heroic, being here.

Latest OG results:

  • Defeated by Astralis with a score of 1:2.
  • Victory over Sprout with a score of 19:16.
  • 2:1 victory over fnatic.
  • Victory over MOUZ with a score of 2:1.
  • Defeat from Heroic with a score of 0:2.

Best OG cards:

  • Overpass - 75% of wins.
  • Inferno - 50% win rate.

Let's not forget that the European team still refuses the Nuke card.

Form Outsiders

The fifth team of the world ranking surprised at IEM Rio Major 2022, where they visited all stages to beat Heroic in the final and become the winner of the championship.

However, at the end of the season, the Russian team deflated, having suffered two defeats from Team Liquid and G2, to take the last line at the end of BLAST Premier World Final 2022.

As for the start at IEM Katowice 2023, here Outsiders managed to suffer a stupid defeat from fnatic, but the day before, they managed to cope with Ninjas in Pajamas and remained afloat. But if the story with Vertigo continues, it will be very sad.

Latest Outsiders results:

  • Victory over Heroic with a score of 2:0.
  • Lost to Team Liquid with a score of 1:2.
  • Lost to G2 with a score of 0:2.
  • Defeated by fnatic with a score of 1:2.
  • Victory over Ninjas in Pajamas with a score of 2:1.

Best Outsiders cards:

  • Inferno - 83% of wins.
  • Mirage - 60% of wins.
  • Overpass - 60% of wins.

Interestingly, the Russian team also refuses the Nuke card.

OG vs Outsiders stats

As part of the last season, the teams held one meeting - at IEM Road to Rio 2022 Europe RMR B, the victory went to OG (2:1).

Prediction for the match OG — Outsiders

Here it is difficult to predict who will win which card, since the pool is as identical as possible. But if OG is not looking to play Vertigo, then the guys are much more likely to rely on Ancient.

However, I would say that the Overpass and Mirage maps are the advantage of the Outsiders, where the team is much more confident if we are talking about distances. It remains Inferno, where the possibilities and chances are approximately equal.

In general, in order not to go in circles, the situation develops in such a way that there is simply no favorite in the game. Therefore, in this case, I would recommend betting on Total on cards 2.5 more.

Outsiders är listade som matchens favoriter hos majoriteten av bookmakers och oddsen på dem är lika med 1.34. OG är i sin tur matchens outsiders. Oddsen på deras seger är ungefär 6.331.
