Vitality vs. BIG Clan
The first match of Friday's three-game cs_summit6 slate is between Vitality and BIG Clan in the European upper bracket final, with both sides coming in as two of the most in-form teams in the world. BIG Clan are the favorites to advance to the grand final and it's nearly impossible to argue against the German side, in fact, I call them the best team in the world. Vitality do pose a substantial threat to the Germans and ZywOo, the best player in the world, is one of the few AWPer's who will favor their chances to take down syrsoN. BIG Clan are the scariest team in the world, offering some of the most multi-faceted threats of any lineup in the world - XANTARES, syrsoN and tabseN three of the most lethal players around, backed up by tiziaN and k1to, two deadly support players. Vitality on the other hand are more single-minded, but when the focal point of your team is the greatest player alive, then it's a good idea to build around the AWP of ZywOo. These two sides are likely to end up on Dust2, Nuke and Overpass, a veto that should favor the dominant German side who will look to take down ZywOo and co. and move into yet another grand final.
Prediction: 2-1 BIG Clan
