Who Are the Biggest Favorites to Win DreamHack Open Leipzig 2020?
All of the teams that are invited are more than solid. I believe that DreamHack Open Leipzig 2020 is a perfect chance for North to finally prove their worth. Given the fact that the entire roster signed contract extensions, the organization will give them a couple of more chances before making changes.
We will also see Virtus.pro back in action. Alongside the Danish squad, Jame and co. will look to start 2020 on the right foot.
Furthermore, you cannot really expect much from Sprout and Renegades as these two teams are severely lacking firepower in their squad, especially once compared to Big, Virtus.pro or North.
With the qualifiers coming up for #DHOpen Leipzig, we can reveal the list of the other teams attending!

It is going to be interesting to see if teams like Gen.G or Cloud9 will look to participate in the North American qualifier as this event would be a perfect fit for them.
