The long-awaited SLTV StarSeries Season 5 finals are starting 28th of May. In the first day of the event, we are going to have eight matches in total which are all going to be played in best of three formats. The first day is going to be quite long but really exciting.
The last game of the first day at Kiev will be an interesting fight between the Swedish up and coming team Godsent and the Aussies Renegades. These two teams have not played against each other and that is why this match will be really interesting. In a paper, the teams are really even in terms of skill. We would rank Renegades a bit higher by looking at the previous games of both teams.
The Aussies have shown that they are capable to play any team in the world. They have won FaZe, Optic three times and almost Mousesports. In a paper, Renegades should be an extremely strong team but they are lacking teamplay. Renegades has a world-class AWP played Nifty, who has proven to be one of the best in the world. Renegades also have great riflers. JKS and Jkaem are really scary when they are on top of their game. When all these aspects click, Renegades is a dangerous team.
Godsent has also proven to be a team to consider a threat. The Swedes placed 3rd/4th in the DreamHack Tours tournament played a week ago in France. Godsent was looking really strong in the online games at the start of this year. They were able to challenge top teams like NiP and FaZe consistently. It still feels like the team is missing a little piece that is stopping them to play at 100% of their capability.
We assume that the strong Renegades are going to be playing the same way they have played these last two months. Our selection for this match is Renegades ML with the odds of 2,10.
- Renegades ML @ 2,10
