The online qualifying tournament for ESL ONE: Road to Rio – Europe started on April 22, 2020.
This tournament will be a special one, because, after 4 years, the coaches will have the right to announce the tactics in each round (which was forbidden 4 years ago), and the 5 players to focus only on the game.
The qualifying tournament is divided into 2 groups of 8 teams each, and they will fight to reach ESL One Rio and a total prize of $ 115,000.
Today, from 17:30, we have the match between fnatic and Movistar Riders, a match without too much stake and we prepared a bet at the end of the analysis.
