ENCE is at the top of the ESL Pro League Season 12 Europe Group A with a 4-1 record and with only two rounds to go, we can say they secured their place in the playoffs. OG, on the other hand, stands at 2-3 at the moment, and a victory here is imperative for them if they want to progress to the playoffs. There is no clear favorite in this Best of 3 duel.

OG Team Stats and Latest Results

OG opened the ESL Pro League Season 12 Europe with a couple of defeats to G2 and BIG but managed to bounce back with a pair of victories over AGO and GODSENT. However, OG couldn’t beat Natus Vincere in the previous round, even though they took one map. This game against ENCE is crucial for OG, and only a win would keep them alive in the playoff race. They won five of the last ten matches.

During the past three months, OG played well on Inferno (60.0%) and was above average on Dust2 (51.6%), but failed to impress on Train (40.7%) and Mirage (43.3%). OG’s current lineup is playing together since June 2020 and has a record of 41 wins and 35 losses on 76 maps. The lineup consists of NBK- (1.03 rating), valde (1.13), Aleksib (1.05), ISSAA (1.08), and mantuu (1.13).

ENCE Team Stats and Latest Results

ENCE displayed some impressive performances at the tournament so far and has four wins in five games, which is an excellent result. The Finnish team started the ESL Pro League Season 12 Europe with two wins over Heroic and Natus Vincere, and although they had a 1-0 lead against GODSENT in Round 3, they lost in the end. Still, ENCE bounced back with wins against G2 and AGO, coming from behind in the latter. ENCE won ten of the previous 17 matches (one draw).

When it comes to the maps in the last three months, ENCE displayed decent performances on Train (66.7%) and Dust2 (66.7%), while they were below average only on Nuke (28.6%). ENCE’s lineup seems not very experienced at first, as they played on just 19 maps together. However, they proved to be quite alright with 11 wins and eight losses. The team members are allu (1.03), Aerial (0.98), sunny (0.94), sergej (0.97), and Jamppi (1.16).

OG vs. ENCE Betting Preview

ENCE can relax in this game as the pressure mounts on OG to record a win, so this one is a tricky match to bet on. I usually don’t play on the winner in such games, but this time around, I am going with OG, who has a good team and deserves to be in the playoffs. They will not secure that place even if they beat ENCE on Wednesday, but they will get a bit closer to their goal. I am going with OG.
