Esports bookmakers have GamerLegion priced as 1.72 favourites to defeat Fnatic, who enter Wednesday's match as 2.00 outsiders. Considering Fnatic have recently made roster changes, it's fair to have some doubts about how good this team is; however, GamerLegion have not shown much recently.

Head to Head


Fnatic and GamerLegion have yet to meet on Counter-Strike 2.

GamerLegion Form


GamerLegion enter Elisa Masters Espoo 2023 as one of the outsiders to win the tournament. That doesn't necessarily have to do with this team's lack of quality.

GamerLegion have found some success this season and have proven to be a quality squad. However, GL have also played just four official games on Counter-Strike 2, and they've not attended a single tournament since mid-October.

This is a problem both because we don't know how good GamerLegion are on CS2 and because they're very rusty. But will this handicap be enough for Fnatic to secure a win?

Fnatic Form


Fnatic have, over the last month, parted ways with three of its members but found replacements just in time for Elisa Masters Espoo 2023. As confirmed earlier this week, Fnatic have signed Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro, Matúš "matys" Šimko, and Can "kyuubii" Ali to fill in the gaps and form a completely new roster.

While the three signings aren't complete rookies, neither is a top-tier talent. With mid-tier signings, it's tough to believe Fnatic can make it far in this tournament, but it's not like Fnatic are a lost cause. Perhaps the new additions can step up and help Fnatic reach the top-four – anything more seems unlikely.

Another positive is that all new signings have experience playing on CS2. Now, the only question is the synergy between them.

Verdict

This is a clash between two teams that enter Elisa Masters Espoo 2023 with a few question marks above them. GamerLegion have not played an official match in over one month and are very rusty, whereas Fnatic have replaced 3/5 of its roster.

It's tough to say which of the two teams is better prepared for this match, but at the offered betting odds, betting on Fnatic looks like the right play. Synergy might be an issue, but GamerLegion's lack of experience on CS2 could prove to be a bigger problem.
