Only one group remains in ESL Pro League Season 16. Group D kicks off on October 21. It looks like Team Liquid is the favourite of the group with many notable teams competing.
Today we will take a look at the schedule, betting odds of Group D and the teams that will take part.
Teams in ESL Pro League Season 16’s Group D
- Movistar Riders
- Team Liquid
- FURIA Esports
- Evil Geniuses
- Eternal Fire
Let's start with Cloud9 first. Cloud9 has been continuing with the same roster for a long time and sharing great camaraderie. When we look at their performance, they took first place with a great performance at IEM Dallas 2022. I predict they will be third in Group D of ESL Pro League Season 16. I think their biggest rival will be FURIA Esports. If they want to advance to the playoffs, they must outperform FURIA Esports.
Movistar Riders put on a pretty upbeat performance recently. They took first place at ESL Challenger at DreamHack Valencia 2022 and advanced to the semifinals at IEM Cologne 2022. SunPayus has left Movistar Riders to join ENCE's roster, while Martinez becomes the new part of Movistar Riders' roster. As one of the leading teams of recent times, I think they will continue their performance with the new addition. I think they will finish second in the group.
We continue with Team Liquid. I think they are the favourite of the group and don't believe they will easily lose first place to another team. The last tournament they participated in was BLAST Premier: Fall Groups 2022 and they successfully completed it and qualified for the Fall Finals 2022.
FURIA Esports will probably do well but it won't be enough for the playoffs and I think they will finish fourth. Their biggest rivals on the way to the playoffs seem to be Cloud9. They need to win against Cloud9. We should also take into account that they made it to the semifinals in the latest ESL Pro League. In short, they are a team that loves the ESL Pro League.
Evil Geniuses will compete with a new member on their roster, neaLaN, in ESL Pro League Season 16. Evil Geniuses is certainly not close to its former glory. If you're asking if they have the power to fix this, I don't think so. Even though they've changed a player in their roster, I don't think they'll be able to make it to the playoffs and will probably finish in last place.
This time we see a Turkish representative in the ESL Pro League. Frankly, they're not performing badly, but that's probably not going to be enough for the playoff stage. I think Eternal Fire will finish Group D in fifth place.
