The match-up will be an opportunity for FURIA to prove how strong they have become since their last encounter with Avangar in the grand finale of DreamHack Open Rio. The CIS squad had come out on top last time around bagging $50,000.
Since their encounter, FURIA has risen from 19th to 8th according to HLTV world ranking while Avangar has fallen from 16th to 21st. Now, with a bigger prize pool on the line and the loser walking away with nothing it is the perfect time for FURIA to take their revenge and settle the score. Let’s see how hard Avangar can fight against the newly forged and heavily experienced FURIA.
