BLAST World Final 2022: Outsiders vs Team Liquid schedule and betting odds
Outsiders have had something of a dramatic first year under their new tag, when Virtus.pro had to launch a more netural name for the team following the war in Ukraine. The Russian team is coming into the World Final in a high, having been crowned the champions of the IEM Rio Major back in November, after defeating Heroic in the grand final.
They'll be facing up against Team Liquid, who didn't fare nearly so well in Rio, coming in 9th - 11th place. Still, the team has a solid track record of its own to brag about. While they don't have any tournament wins under their belt this year, they did make it all the way to the grand final at ESL Pro League Season 16, where they were ultimately defeated by by Team Vitality.
Still, the odds are in Outsiders' favour over Team Liquid, at 1.65 vs 2.10. Outsiders gave an amazing performance in Rio, but Team Liquid will certainly be eager to prove themselves - and claim their last chance for a 2022 tournament win.
You'll have to watch the match right here on Luckbox to see how this one is going to play out, as Outsiders and Team Liquid kick off the last CS:GO tournament of the year. Sign up for your free account before the action kicks off, and we'll see you at the World Final!
