Nordavind vs. Wisla Krakow Betting Preview
Nordavind is in a better form at the moment despite having some difficulties in the group stage. Nonetheless, they managed to win all three games after coming from a 1-0 deficit, so I expect them to bounce back in this one in case Wisla Krakow wins the opening map. I am not saying the Polish team doesn’t have a chance to win here, but I am backing Nordavind to progress to the quarter-finals.
