Bulgarian rivals SKADE and FATE will clash this Tuesday in the hopes of securing a place in the fifth round of LOOT.BET/CS Season 7.

SKADE began the tournament with two disappointing losses against ALTERNATE aTTaX (1-2) and PACT (1-2), but they managed to keep their heads above water with a commanding win against Wisla Krakow (2-0) last Monday.

SKADE participated at the recent Cyber.Bet Summer Cup, where they finished in fourth place after losing to FATE and Illuminar Gaming in the first round of the playoffs. Teodor “SPELLAN” Nikolov also took part at ESEA Season 34: Premier Division – Europe, where they ran 10th in the regular season and just missed the playoffs.

Their failure to enter the post-season at ESEA means SKADE lost another opportunity to claim their first CS:GO esports title since April, when they won SECTOR: MOSTBET Season 2. SPELLAN and co. are still in the running at LOOT.BET/CS S7, but they need to take down their regional rivals who have caused them headaches before.

FATE are far from a top-tier CS:GO team, but their success in recent months should not be ignored. Since the turn of the year, they have won WINNERS League – Season 3: Europe Main Division, Phoenix League Season 1 and the Cyber.Bet Summer Cup. They also finished in third-fourth place at Assembly Winter 2020.

Like SKADE, FATE also took part at ESEA Season 34: Premier Division – Europe. Unlike their compatriots, however, FATE fought their way into the playoffs with a 10-5 record and 218-175 map differential.

FATE also took a swing at cs_summit 6 Online: Europe last week, where they were placed in a tough Group B with North, Vitality and Movistar Riders. While Nikolay “niki1” Pantaleev and his team lost both fixtures against Team Vitality (0-2) and Movistar Riders (0-2) to finish last, they earned 312.5 Regional Major Rankings (RMR) points.

Looking back, FATE managed to win seven out of their last 10 matches. That run includes wins over SKADE (2-1), Nemiga Gaming (16-11), Team Singularity (16-10), Wisla Krakow (16-8), mens (W-FF), Illuminar (2-0) and HellRaisers (3-2).

SKADE hold a 5-5 record from their last 10. While they lost to Movistar Riders (24-28), ALTERNATE aTTaX (12-16), FATE (1-2), Illuminar (0-2) and CR4ZY (1-2), they also enjoyed convincing wins over Unicorns of Love (16-2), pro100 (16-5), FATE (16-13), Wisla Krakow (2-0) and AGO (16-13).


Historically, FATE and SKADE tend to produce close matches, which is not surprising given these two rosters know each other well. FATE came away with a 2-1 win when they met last week, but that was an unusually one-side affair.

SKADE took the series lead with 16-10 on Dust II but got stomped into the dirt on Mirage (6-16) and Overpass (5-16). The stats suggest they deserved to lose, seeing how Viktor “Duplicate” Mitev, Blagoi “Oxygen” Dimitrov and Denislav “dennyslaw” Dimitrov had a combined average rating of 0.72 for the series.

SKADE’s entire roster is running at only 1.03 over the past three months, while FATE’s squad holds a 1.06 average rating. That margin is rather small, but FATE’s results in recent weeks are far better. They lost only one out of their last five played, while SKADE lost three.

The match odds are tight and the historical record points to a close encounter, but the form lines suggest FATE are in much better shape and should get the win.

FATE to win
