TEAM SKYFIRE vs CHIEFS ESPORTS CLUB ESEA SEASON 34: PREMIER DIVISION – AUSTRALIA BETTING PREVIEW
Team Skyfire are slated to meet the new-look Chiefs Esports Club this Thursday in the fourth matchweek of ESEA Season 34: Premier Division – Australia.
Chiefs have been in full rebuild mode since February, when they released their old lineup and signed the entire Genuine Gaming squad. That project came to nothing, however, as the Australian esports organisation decided to part ways with Jordan “SkulL” Newland, Daryl “Mayker” May and Chris “Junxx Moseley last Friday.
Chiefs have since added Jay “soju-j” Jeong and Charlie “zeph” Dodd to the roster alongside Tom “apocdud” Henry and Hugh “HUGHMUNGUS” Anderson. As they have yet to sign a fifth player, head coach Yaman “yam” Ergenekon acted as a stand-in for Tuesday’s 16-7 victory over Rooster.
Apocdud was the player to watch in that match, as he finished with an impressive 1.60 rating. Not far behind was zeph on 1.47, Yam and soju_j both secured 1.26 ratings, while HUGHMUNGUS recorded a respectable 1.14.
Team Skyfire enter this bout sitting 11th in the ESEA S34: Premier Division – Australia standings with a 3-2 record. Alec “Noisia” Gulabovski and his crew defeated Mako (16-12), Justice (16-6) and Overt (16-14), but they fell short against PC419 (14-16) and TRUCKERS (7-16).
Like Chiefs, Skyfire rebuilt their roster not too long ago. At the start of the month, they acquired Noisia, Mohammed “MoeycQ” Tizani, Mehmet “tot” Kayf and Colter “Dirty” Barstad from i sleep. Their latest addition came on Thursday, when Skyfire signed former Paradox Gaming player Edward “Chub” Lee.
Skyfire have played four games since Chub’s arrival, all of them at ESL ANZ Champs Season 11: Open Qualifier #2. There, they defeated Blessed Esports (19-16), Overt (16-10) and run it back bruv (2-0) en route to the grand finals, where bruv had their revenge with a 2-1 victory.
TEAM SKYFIRE vs CHIEFS ESPORTS CLUB ESEA SEASON 34: PREMIER DIVISION – AUSTRALIA BETTING PREDICTIONS
Looking at raw statistics, Team Skyfire are in a better vein of form and sit higher in the CS:GO esports global rankings. Yet they enter this bout as massive underdogs, and there is a reasonable explanation for that.
For although Chiefs have an incomplete squad with no runs on the board, they are still the stronger team. Yam alone is more experienced than the whole Skyfire roster, while the impressive showing from apocdud and co. against Rooster on Tuesday suggests they will have no issues with Skyfire.
Online fixtures can be difficult to predict, but there is no reason to expect an upset here. Chiefs will need some time to gel and reach their full potential, but they should win this fixture with ease.
