Fnatic vs. MIBR – Flashpoint Season 2 (December 3, 2020)

| December 2, 2020 8:40 am PDT

The first knockout round of Flashpoint Season 2 brought us plenty of exciting matches and I hope for more of the same in the Upper Bracket semifinals. The clash between Fnatic and MIBR is especially intriguing to me because of the Brazilians’ rapid improvement recently.

The organization made a lot of changes in the roster and that looks like a good decision right now, but the next match won’t be easy.

I share my thoughts on both sides in this Fnatic v. MIBR betting preview. The post also includes the latest odds and lines, my prediction, and a free betting pick.

Fnatic Current Form and Analysis

October was a weak month for Fnatic’s standards, but the Swedish side looked better in November and won most of its matches in Flashpoint Season 2 group stage. The start in the playoffs was relatively strong too after a victory over Dignitas.

Fnatic lost Vertigo but beat the opposition on Overpass and Train to progress to the Upper Bracket Semifinals. I’m not sure a similar performance will be enough to overcome MIBR, though. Dignitas simply don’t have the individual quality that the Brazilians possess.

You can’t beat them if there’s any form of sloppiness and Fnatic has been guilty of that lately. The Swedish side still has more experience and should be better than MIBR from a tactical standpoint, though, which is why the betting sites favor Fnatic slightly.

MIBR Current Form and Analysis

I’ve been very impressed by MIBR’s new roster and the guys are getting better after every game. They started the quarterfinal against OG by winning their map pick convincingly and despite losing badly on Inferno, they came back to absolutely demolish the opposition in the decider.

It was a brilliant display against a strong opponent and I believe that MIBR’s confidence will be sky-high. The Brazilians obviously believed in themselves from day one and their chemistry improves by the minute.

They are once again entering this match as the underdog, but I’m not so sure if that should be the case. Every player on the roster can explode and deliver something special which is the sign of a truly great team.

Fnatic vs. MIBR Pick

I can see some good arguments in favor of both teams which is why the over 2.5 maps option looks like the best Fnatic vs. MIBR betting pick. The previous stage of Flashpoint Season 2 saw four matches that went the distance and this one should continue this trend.
