Here are the teams that we believe will shine in Miami:
The best CS: GO team in the world, Astral has won The BLAST Pro Series on three occasions. A few weeks ago the side triumphed in Sao Paulo which indicated that the team is in perfect condition. They didn’t participate in the StarSeries 7, which might lead you to think that they will a bit rusty in Miami. Yet, we believe that they will be a force to be reckoned with. The Danes have the perfect squad to win their fourth title of the Blast Pro Series.
CHAMPIONS OF BLAST PRO SERIES SÃO PAULO 2019!

Astalis requires no other statistic to put them in contention. They might very well win this competition without dropping a single. But Team Liquid will have something to say about that.
Following the footsteps of the Danes, the invite to StarSeries Season 7 was also declined by Team Liquid. The team will now be rested and determined to stop Astralis from winning another title in 2019. In the finale of the Sao Paulo competition, only Liquid was able to push Astralis to game 3. Yet, Unfortunately, the Danes came out all guns blazing and reigned supreme.
On a positive note Liquid is a pretty good shape. They have registered decent stats in 2019 and we believe they are the only team to take down Astralis. Liquid won against Astralis on Dust IIm but was comprehensively beaten in the next two maps 16-2 and 16-8. Will this defeat pave the way for future wins for Liquid? We will have to wait for the answer in Miami.

The track sheet of the CIS side is pretty good when it comes to the BLAST Pro Series. Before Miami, they have competed BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen 2018 where they took First place. After that, they tried their luck in the BLAST Pro Series Lisbon 2018 where they settled for 2nd spot. S1mple and Na’Vi will be looking to get their hand on the second BPS title. They have every right to dream big since, against the odds, the team won the StarSeries Season 7 a few days ago. So they have the pre-tournament training which Liquid and Astralis lack. This might be the edge Na’VI needs to possibly dethrone Astralis.

One of the most controversial and unpredictable teams of the competitive world in FaZe Clan. The roster of the team is simply amazing and on paper, they could easily beat any team in the world. Yet, they lack the winning chemistry. We believe that amongst the invited participants they are weakest teams. Since a week ago, the team was eliminated in the first phase of the Star Series, losing to second and third tier teams respectively.
If the team fails to perform in Miami then we will see roster changes. Since not only the fans but the entire community of CS: GO is tired of the team’s failures tournament after tournament.
