Sentinels vs Leviatán: A duel of giants

It seems like a game of clear Sentinel favoritism, but leaving Leviatán aside could be dangerous. The South American organization has two world champions at its side, Erick "aspas" Santos and Corbin "C0M" Lee. In addition, the roster includes three other high-quality players.

Although the start of the season with these big names did not live up to expectations, these games of facing a favorite like Sentinels could be a confidence boost for the team. If on the one hand we cannot underestimate the power of Leviatán, Sentinels arrives with the best team in the world.

The question remains, will Sentinels continue their comfort in the Americas after winning the Kickoff or is this game a turning point on Leviatán's part?
