The major is only three days away and there are some fairly exciting matches ahead that deserve to be discussed in detail. Here are our predictions for the upcoming CS:GO Major.
The Swedish power house has just recently acquired the sixth tournament win in a row under the new line-up. This domination of the current CS:GO scene has been going on ever since December but might potentially come to an end at the next major.
The next major tournament is on its way to be held in the United States, and one final step to reach it is the last offline qualifier that will determine the Challenger spots for the group stage.
