Both squads aren’t performing that well lately, so it’s almost impossible to predict a winner. Bookmakers chose to bet on Fantastic Five winning the series. At the time of writing GG.Bet is offering odds of 1.71 on F5 winning, while odds on PR are 2.08. There are no handicapped bets. As you can see, both teams’ chances are valued almost equally.
If you take a look at Power Rangers last few games, the picture is not that great. They are 6-4 in August and 2-3 in September. The Belarusians have lost 3 matches in a row, two against Prodota Gaming, and one to The Imperial.
On September 8 PR have registered their full roster for this season. The team has officially welcomed Afoninje, who played as a stand-in for almost a month.
New Power Rangers roster:
Fantastic Five also can’t be too happy with their latest results. They are 4-6 in August and 2-2 in September. Their last loss is especially painful. On September 12 F5 were defeated 2-0 by Comanche in the final of Russian qualifiers for WESG Europe and CIS. Can the Russian squad quickly overcome such disappointment? Possibly, but the lack of stability in their performances raises some serious doubts.
For the upcoming season, Fantastic Five still haven’t registered their final roster. Almost certainly they will keep their star players IllidanSTR, yol, and ALWAYSWANNAFLY. On September 18 we will know for sure.
We expect F5 to use this roster against PR:
Looking at the history of matches between these teams also won’t show a clear favorite: they are tied 4-4. Considering that F5 players have to impress the team management before the end of the shuffle period, this win should be more important to them. Power Rangers already have a set roster and are still trying to find their best game, so they can afford to experiment a bit.
For those who don’t believe in F5 it would be a good choice to bet on them winning the first map. With odds of 1.72, this is a pretty good bet. We predict F5 to take the series 2-1.
The match will start at 16:00 on September 14. The start time can still change so it would be a good idea to check for updates on social media.
