Fnatic and Nordavind are meeting in the Round of 16 of the cs_summit 6 Europe Regional Qualifier. Both sides are fighting to enter the next round and stay alive in the race for a ticket to the main tournament. These rivals have never met before.
The Swedish side Fnatic are entering this clash as massive favorites despite losing two of the previous three matches, including the most recent one to MAD Lions at the DreamHack Masters Spring 2020. Over the last three months, Fnatic have a 55.2% win rate. When it comes to the maps during the same period, Fnatic are the most successful on Train (80.0% win rate), but they have been weaker on Dust2 (30.0%) and Mirage (30.8%).
The European team Nordavind are even in a worse form than their opponents as they lost each of the last three matches after going on a three-game winning streak. Nordavind have a 51.0% win rate over the last three months, while they were producing the best displays on Inferno map (56.0% win rate) and Nuke (53.8%).

Pick: Fnatic Handicap -1.5 Maps (-189 @bet365)
Fnatic are a team with a pedigree, and they will not miss on the opportunity to book their ticket to the main cs_summit 6 Europe tournament. Although they failed to impress recently, Fnatic shouldn’t have problems with Nordavind, and I am backing them to win in straight maps. I thought to back rounds handicap at -11.5, as I believe Fnatic will not drop more than ten rounds per map, but I chose the safer option instead.
