The previous two times, Fnatic dominated both series. Gambit had a tough road to the playoffs on paper, but the Kazakh team took care of all its opponents and went on to a perfect group stage record.
Fnatic had an even tougher road as after its initial matchup against Flipsid3 Tactics, it only faced top ten teams, but survived after defeating a struggling Natus Vincere and the number four ranked team in the world, G2 Esports.
History shows Fnatic has the edge, 9 wins to Gambit's 4, which includes the Swedes winning the last three matches.

The second round appeared to be all Gambit as Fnatic could not get a rhythm. Gambit went up after a round Fnatic won in which it defused the bomb.
However, the Swedes could not string more than two rounds together in the second half and the next one was a crucial one. In the 26th round, Zeus had his team play under his normal slow style.
With about a minute to go, Gambit executed towards the B bombsite. Hobbit quickly entered and took down a boosted JW. Dosia took down dennis as the bomb was planted and then quickly took down KRiMZ before mou found olofmeister and Gambit reset Fnatic's economy.

Before, landing a major was seen as validation of past events, but no more. There had been no mentions of a potential event in advance of the major announcement.
With little financial risk for PGL and two competitors that had already sunk their costs to stadiums that need to be filled, the timing of the major could be considered a tactical decision, regardless of if it was intentional or if circumstances such as scheduling for the venue forced PGL's hand.
A Valve-promoted event is all-but guaranteed to come out as No. And it also happens to hurt PGL's direct competitors by pitting its major against their second-tier event, which then cannot attract the best teams, talent or the most fans.
It might not have been PGL's intention, and it is, unfortunately, entirely possible that Valve did not realize the implications of giving PGL the event.
Event organizers are competing for teams' attendance as it is, and the CS:GO scene is on thin ice in its current form.
There are too many events, and poor scheduling leading to lower viewership will only make organizers demand that the open circuit gets converted into an American sports-style exclusive league even more.
Investors would absolutely love that, as it would then make owning a Counter-Strike team less of a gamble, but it might not be the way to go until the scene has developed further.
Today's revenue-sharing leagues will slow down growth in prize pools, but not stop what appears to be the inevitable -- an exclusive league taking over.
If Valve does not plan to take a more hands-on approach to CS:GO, which seems a given by now, the way event organizers bid for these events should be re-thought.The PGL Krakow Group Stage will happen from July 16 to July 19, followed by the Playoffs on July 21 and the Grand Final on Sunday, July The winner will take home the biggest portion of a one.
