Tonight we see two teams who on paper are evenly matched, Sweden and Germany. If this was a 6v6 match it would be a mouthwatering affair. However this is Highlander, and its still a mouthwatering affair. Both teams have had some comfortable wins. Germany have yet to drop a map all tournament (including a default win against Portugal), including a tough, but comfortable win against Russia. Sweden however have dropped just one map all tournament, however its not much to judge from it, as they managed to pull through against England.
With CTF_Converge and CP_Gravelpit as the two maps (with PL_Upward as the decider if needed), we can expect some high quality fragging from both teams. Will the German grit of their veterans basH, stefan and Thy be enough to stop the mighty impressive Swedish skill of TCM sensation Zebbosai, backed up with veteran TheSucker? Theres only one way to find out. Tune in tonight with Hildreth and Comedian on the Mics to find out, here at VanillaTV @ 21:15 CEST
