ESL One: Road to Rio continues! We break down two of today's CIS matchups.
Winstrike have a clear advantage in the map veto in this semi-final matchup against Hard Legion. Both Nuke and Vertigo are good maps for Winstrike, and they will get the chance to play at least one of these against Hard Legion. I like Winstrike to take this series and their map pick, sadly the odds have dropped a bit from the opening line but there is still some value to be had.
Nemiga are another CIS side that has started incorporating Vertigo into their map pool, and it might just prove to be the deciding factor in this matchup against a Syman team that, just like HardLegion, does not favor either Vertigo nor Nuke. This one is a bit riskier, but Nemiga should have the edge overall.
