FaZe vs. G2
FaZe are coming off a closely contested 2–1 loss to mousesports in ESL Pro League. It is somewhat worrying that they were not able to capitalize on the fact that woxic had a bit off an off-game on the AWP because they will now be going up against one of the hottest AWPers in the game in G2's kennyS. The Frenchman had a stunning performance in their opening match against TYLOO, posting a K/D differential of +47 with a 73.7 percent success rate in opening duels. Other names worth highlighting are G2's huNter and FaZe's NiKo, two players who are in fine form at the moment. This should be yet another brawl that could go either way, but I would slightly favor G2 due to their current form.
G2 Players to Target: kennyS ($7,200) huNter ($6,600)
FaZe Players to Target: NiKo ($7,200) coldzera ($5,800)
