DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019 is just around the corner and a lot of top contenders will clash in this CSGO tournament. Below you can find more information about this event and you can also read our prediction regarding the tournament winner, so do not miss out.
DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019 Overview
Let’s start things off with basics. There are two stages to this event, the group stage, and the playoffs. A total of 16 teams will fight for their share of a $250,000 prize pool. From what we were able to find out, DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019 tickets are nearly sold-out and we’ll see the best teams compete in front of the sold-out crowd in Malmö Arena.
Group Stage (October 1st – October 3rd)
Two double-elimination groups have been put in place. Each group has 8 teams. Furthermore, all of the opening matches will be played in the best of 1 format, while every other match in the group stage will be played in the best of 3 series.
The best three teams from each group will advance through to the playoffs, but there is a catch to it. Group stage winners will advance directly to the semifinals which means that they will have a day off. On the other hand, second-placed teams will also advance to the playoffs, but they will be placed in the quarterfinals as high seeds.
Last but not least, third-placed teams will find their way to the quarterfinals as well, but they will have a hard time since they are placed there as low seeds.
Playoffs (October 4th – October 6th)
Format is quite simple when it comes to DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019 playoffs. Single-elimination bracket has been put in place which basically means that there are no second chances for anyone here in Sweden.
It is also important to mention that all of the matches played in the playoffs will be played in the best of 3 format, grand final included.
DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019 Winner Prediction
Keep in mind that DreamHack Masters Malmö 2017(the last DreamHack played in Malmö) was won by G2. Do you think that they have a chance to win it again now that they made roster changes and added two hard hitters in the form of nexa and hunter?
I believe that G2 will struggle in this event and I am positive that they will have a hard time making it through to the playoffs in the first place. On the other hand, Evil Geniuses are playing out of their minds right now and I would be crazy if I passed on their odds.
At the moment, Betway values Evil Geniuses at 4.00 odds and in my personal opinion, there is a huge chance that the North American CSGO team will win another trophy in the span of one week.
DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019 Matches and Prediction
There are quite a few opening matches being played on the first day here on DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019. Below you can find some of our safest predictions.
Mousesports vs NiP
After a long spell without a successful tournament, mousesports will have a perfect chance to at least make things competitive here in Sweden. On top of that, they are matched against one of the worst teams on this event and I believe that everything except a huge victory in favor of mousesports would be a huge surprise.
At the moment, Pinnacle is offering the highest odds on this match and there is definitely value if you place a bet on mousesports. They are a better team all around. They have better individuals, stronger map pool and the most important things, team play and chemistry.
Even though mousesports had a hard time in the DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019 European Qualifier, I simply cannot see them lose this match against NiP.
Prediction: Mousesports to Win

ENCE vs fnatic
Even though ENCE is in an awful form right now, I believe that they will win this match. Fnatic is looking really bad in the last couple of months and they are lucky that this event is being played in their home country, otherwise, they would not even be invited.
There is no denying that ENCE has better individuals in this match and they should put this to good use. On the other hand, fnatic made roster changes and this will be their first LAN event with new players and we all know that most teams struggle in these situations.
Map pool is also heavily favoring ENCE in this one and if they can drag the map veto to either Train or Nuke, they should be set for success. All in all, odds on ENCE to win are really good and they should edge out fnatic in this one.
Prediction: ENCE to Win
