Winstrike vs. Spirit
The first match of the Sunday slate is the Road to Rio CIS Grand final between Spirit and Winstrike, with both teams looking to take home the 1600 RMR points and CIS trophy. Winstrike and Spirit both came from Group A, with Spirit going 5-0 to top the group, while Winstrike were the runner's up going 3-2. Winstrike have been rampant in the playoffs, taking down Syman and Hard Legion, both 2-0, while Spirit simply had a 2-1 semifinal victory over Virtus.pro to qualify. Spirit come in as the favorites, and with the form that mir and chopper have been in, alongside iDISBALANCE, seem to have the firepower to secure the grand prize. Winstrike on the other hand have turned towards Russian star El1an to be the difference maker as they look to upset a red-hot Spirit side. The value in this match should come from the veterans on Winstrike, with bondik and Hobbit in particular looking for a strong performance against the younger side of Spirit.

SPI Players to Target: mir ($12,600 Captain, $8,400 Flex), iDISBALANCE ($10,200 Captain, $6,800 Flex)
