Dignitas (1-2) vs. Fnatic (2-1)
BLAST Spring resumes Thursday in Europe as the Swedish derby opens the slate with Fnatic looking to secure a 3-1 group stage record while Dignitas look to guarantee qualification with a victory. Fnatic come in as favorites, and after a hard-fought victory over mousesports on Wednesday will look to turn around their poor form of late. If Dignitas want to pull off the upset, they will need a vintage performance from their veteran core, especially Xizt and friberg, who have been exceptionally poor over the last three months. If the in-game leader and support of Dignitas can have the individual performances of years gone by, Dignitas should have enough firepower to challenge Fnatic; if not, it will be a short match. The map veto should be relatively straight forward in the sense that both teams play a very traditional map pool and will likely push the match towards three places. Nuke, Inferno or Train, the three maps that have perhaps the most team-play, and some of the longest standing maps in Counter-Strike, will be the likely home for this match. That should favor Fnatic, who boast a higher win rate on both Inferno and Train, the latter of which Dignitas have tallied only a 23 percent win rate on in the last three
