Lyngby Vikings is ranked 84th in the world and has been on a massive losing streak. The team lost its last five matches against opponents like AVEZ, Gambit Youngsters, Endpoint and ALTERNATE aTTaX. Vertigo and Inferno are two of the best maps for the squad. The team lacks adequate firepower and the players often lose direct 1v1 combats which could have helped the team improve significantly. maNkz is crucial to the team’s performance but he relies on his teammates and the team’s strategy to shine.
Tikitakan is an unranked CS:GO team and is the underdog in this particular match-up. The roster has no achievements to boast of and will be under immense pressure to perform well. With a 1.25 rating, Djur is the best player on the squad and he has a high skill ceiling. However, mots of the player’s matches have been against lower-ranked opponents. Playing against a team that is significantly better in synergy, strategy and firepower will test the player’s limits.

Lyngby Vikings is the better team with a higher rank and firepower. The team also has a decent strat-book which will be crucial going up against an unranked opponent. I am taking Lyngby Vikings to win this match.
