Featured Match: Misfits vs Afreeca Freecs Red

Things are heating up in Group B at the Overwatch APEX Season 2 in Korea as the Misfits prepare to take on the Afreeca Freecs Red team, each hoping to be the last team standing to claim the $85,000 USD at stake.

Both of these teams are struggling to make themselves known in Group B, dwindling at the bottom of the rankings after the first round of clashes. Lunatic Hai took out AF.Red 3-0 two weeks ago and LW Blue knocked out Misfits 3-1 in an earlier match, leaving these two teams to fight for last place in their group.

The recent changes to the Overwatch meta with the latest large patch mean that both teams will be re-thinking their approach to this match-up (check out our write-up here if you want to learn more about how the pro teams are already adapting!).

Based on their play history we think Misfits are the favourite to take this one home, thanks to their strong performance at Dreamhack Winter and IEM XI Gyeonggi. What do you think? Place your bets!
