The DreamHack Masters Spring 2020: Europe continues as MAD Lions is set to battle with BIG. This match will be part of the opening round Group B play in the tournament. The DreamHack Masters Spring 2020: Europe is broken into two stages, Group Stage which is currently taking place and Playoffs.
The event features 16 teams from the European region. During the Group Stage, the teams are split into four groups of four and they take place in a round-robin style bracket featuring best-of-three map matches taking place over three days. The winners of each group will move into the Upper Bracket of the Playoffs while second and third place will move into the Lower Bracket.
MAD Lions features a roster of players exclusively from Denmark, and they are one of the best teams in the tournament. They are ranked 13th in the world, and they come into this event red hot. MAD Lions has won two straight contests and 10 of their last 11, taking on some tough competition along the way. This team is battle-tested and ready to take on anyone.
The primarily German roster of BIG is taking place in this tournament after winning a qualier tournament. They come in ranked 30th in the world and appeared to be on the rise after dominating C-Tier competition. However, they have recently hit a stump while playing against B-Tier opponents and they have their hands full in this match.
I will gladly lay this juice with MAD Lions. Not only is MAD Lions ranked higher in the world, but they have a ton of momentum also. They don't lose often as a team, and we've already seen BIG struggle with tougher opponents lately. MAD Lions will make quick and easy work of BIG as they continue to move up the world rankings.
