DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019 Playoffs Format & Schedule

Let’s start things off with the basics. Playoffs will start on October 4th, while the grand final will be played on October 6th.

There are no second chances for anyone in this event since the single-elimination bracket has been put in place. This basically means that if you lose one game, you are out. On top of that, all of the matches, including the grand final will be played in the best of 3 format so prepare yourself for three days packed with action. You can watch the matches here.

DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019 Playoffs Predictions and Tips

There are two quarterfinals scheduled for today. Below you can find our insight into both matches. Hopefully, this will enable you to create your own winning prediction.

Fnatic vs NiP

Both teams are playing in front of their crowd. We can call this a Swedish derby where one team will advance through to the semifinals, while the other will pack their bags. Fnatic won 3 in a row, while NiP got battered in their last match against Natus Vincere.

Map pool is favoring fnatic in this one and I would not be surprised if they win this best of 3 series without dropping a map. However, both teams made roster changes and it is hard to know what to expect from both fnatic and NiP. Even though we have seen glimpses of brilliance from fnatic in their last three matches, I simply do not believe them that much.

On the other hand, NiP did not look so good. They were quite lucky with the matches since they played against Grayhound, arguably the worst team on this event.

To summarize, odds on fnatic to defeat NiP are quite solid. I would suggest you place your bet on this match at Betway since they are offering the best odds.

Prediction: fnatic to Win

Vitality vs mousesports

To be honest, I did not expect a lot from Vitality in this one since they replaced nbk with shox not even a week ago. It seems like shox was a perfect fit for Vitality and they are looking really good (except in their last match against Astralis).

On the other hand, mousesports had a shaky start and they were quite lucky since they were matched against OpTic and Grayhound. However, they have also defeated Evil Geniuses, a team that won ESL One New York 2019.

When it comes to map pool and veto, there are no favorites here. Both teams will get a comfort pick for themselves and this is why I believe we are going to see a decider in this one. This will be a back and forth fight and the luckier team will come out on top.

Prediction: Total Maps Played – Over 2.5
Odds: 1.87
