9INE re-entered CS:GO at the start of August with the signing of a new all-Polish lineup, the core of which was a part of Wisla Krakow before that organisation disbanded its CS:GO division. Since then, 9INE have attended six qualifying events but have succeeded in just the open qualifiers for ESL Mistrzostwa Polski Autumn.

But despite their lack of success, 9INE are in decent form, having won four of their last six outings and nine out of their last 14. Still, it’s easy to see why 9INE are priced as heavy underdogs for this match.

ForZe are far from a tier-one team, but they have been flirting with the top divisions for a while. Notably, forZe have qualified for PGL Major Antwerp, the European RMR, and placed second at ESEA Season 41 Advanced Division: Europe in July.

Even though neither is a top-tier team, forZe are significantly better than 9INE, who are still building their identity – a process that will take a while longer to complete.

1WIN and SAW last met a week ago during IEM Road to Rio 2022 Europe Open Qualifier #2, where 1WIN came out ahead (22-20). It marked their fourth consecutive head-to-head victory, but the first since June. SAW have played six matches since that loss and won five, including their last four against PACT, Infinite, Anonymo Esports, and GamerLegion.

On the other side, 1WIN have played five official games over that stretch and won all but one – a 0-2 loss against K23 – and four straight heading into this bout. And even though 1WIN did not need to face any tough opponents, they have looked dominant in their wins, keeping their opponents at eight or fewer rounds in each.

1WIN won their last meeting with SAW, but the match was very close and could’ve ended the other way had a single round ended differently. This match is as close to 50/50 as it can get, so we have to side with the outsiders at plus money.
