Both Astralis and mousesports started the ESL Pro League Season 12 Group B with two wins and one defeat. Another victory today would pave the way to the knockouts for the winner and I expect to see both sides motivated right from the start.

Astralis Team Analysis

I’ve been impressed with Astralis so far in the ESL Pro League. The team started the tournament with a close defeat against Complexity, but then beat FaZe Clan and Vitality. The second victory was especially impressive because the French organization has been among the strongest CS:GO teams recently.

Astralis has been impressive on several maps like Nuke, Dust 2, and Train. The team looks prepared for the tournament and another victory today would be a major step towards the ESL Pro League Season 12 playoffs.

That should provide more than enough motivation to the Danes and I expect to see the best from Astralis.

Mousesports Team Analysis

The last couple of months have been tough for mousesports and the team has failed to deliver good results. On top of that, the organization made some changes in the roster and suspended the coach Rejin after he admitted of exploiting a bug back in his time with Tricked.

You would expect an even bigger decline under such circumstances, but it seems like the problems might have lifted mousesports. The team started the ESL Pro League with two victories and the lost a close clash against NiP.

I wouldn’t say that the squad is playing at its best in terms of strategy and execution, but the spirit and the desire to win have been on another level compared to the past previous months.

Astralis vs. Mousesports Prediction and Pick

Both teams were involved in several matches that went to three maps and I won’t be shocked if the same happens today. Astralis is certainly the better squad right now, but mousesports has improved immensely and there’s a sense of togetherness around the roster.

That should be enough for the underdog to win at least one map and the price of +130 for this clash to go the distance is too high to ignore, in my opinion.

  • Over 2.5; +130
