RENEGADES vs CHIEFS ESPORTS CLUB ESL ONE COLOGNE 2020 BETTING PREVIEW

The Oceanic sector of ESL One Cologne 2020 Online will kick off this Tuesday with a clash between two regional rivals in Renegades and Chiefs Esports Club.

After losing their entire roster to 100 Thieves in October 2019, Renegades needed only a few months to rebuild and solidify themselves as one of the strongest Australian CS:GO organisations. While the current version of the team is not nearly as good as the previous one, Chris “dexter” Nong and co. deserve a lot of praise for their firm hold of the no.2 spot in the regional rankings.

Looking back at what Renegades have achieved throughout 2020, it’s hard to not be impressed. They started the year by qualifying for the Intel Extreme Masters XIV World Championship, where they later finished 13th-16. At the end of January, they made it to the grand finals of DreamHack Open Leipzig 2020.

Since then, Renegades have won every single tournament they’ve attended: DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 Oceania, Asia Minor Championship Rio 2020 Oceanic Closed Qualifier, ESL One Road to Rio Oceania, and DreamHack Open Summer 2020 Oceania. That form comes as part of a 17-2 run after crashing out of IEM Katowice.

There was a time when Chiefs ESC were a force to be reckoned with, both on their home soil and internationally, but those days are long gone. They have gone through quite a few roster changes in recent times, albeit with far less success than Renegades.

The most recent personnel change happened only a couple of weeks ago when Hugh “HUGHMUNGUS” Anderson left for Avant Gaming, leaving Chiefs with a roster consisting of Tom “apocdud” Henry, Charlie “zeph” Dodd, Ju-young “soju_j” Jeong, Chris “ofnu” Hanley and a relative unknown in Declan “Vexite” Portelli.

Even though that looks fairly solid on paper, Chiefs are not performing at the level you would expect of them. Their only notable accomplishments this season are third place at ESL One Road to Rio in May and fourth at DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 a month later.

Most recently, Chiefs took a swing at ESEA Season 34 Premier Division Australia, where they had to settle for seventh-eighth place after they were forced to forfeit their game against TRUCKERS WITH ATTITUDE due to an incomplete roster. Despite that, Chiefs are 9-3 in their last 12 games, although they have not played any tough fixtures outside of their losses to Avant and ORDER.

RENEGADES vs CHIEFS ESPORTS CLUB ESL ONE COLOGNE 2020 BETTING PREDICTIONS

The CS:GO betting odds for this match paint a clear picture of how this game will go. Renegades are undoubtedly one of the top dogs in own region, while Chiefs Esports Club are a shadow of their former selves.

There is always a chance we might see an upset, but there are many things that would suggest otherwise. Besides the mismatch in form and quality, Chiefs have not played for over a month and will field coach Yaman “yam” Ergenekon instead of ofnu in this clash.

All signs point to a clean sweep for Renegades. If you can get your hands on odds higher than -250, load up on the favourites to cover the -1.5 line.
