Team Liquid will face FaZe Clan in the next matchup for IEM Katowice 2022. Here we have updated rosters and odds for the event.
Team Liquid had been invited to the tournament, so they did not have to pass the play-in stage. Lately they obtained the French player Richard "shox" Papilon, so things should look better going into the group stage, as the road has been bumpy: defeats to NIP, Gambit and NAVI raise concerns among many. The following roster will try to remind everyone — Liquid are able to deliver top plays on LAN events.
FaZe have been on a hot streak lately, winning all five of their last matches. They've won against Liquid and Vitality previously on BLAST Spring Groups, and also managed to beat Sprout and MOUZ in katowice despite playin with a stand-in for Robin "ropz" Kool. Coming to the lineup, FaZe look like this:
Experts think FaZe have more chances to go through: they have already warmed up through play-ins, and are used to the LAN environment. Here are the odds of the match:
- Winner: FaZe — 1.61.
- Winner: Team Liquid — 2.3;
- Map total < 2.5 — 1.81;
- Map total >2.5 — 1.91.
