Expert Squad for Outsiders vs Fnatic
Both teams are very closely ranked, with Outsiders being better ranked among the two. This being said, the most recent matchup between the two was won by Fnatic which is why I will pick three players from this team. Jame has been a beast on the AWP who also has been a consistent performer. FL1T and mezii have provided great support to their teams and KRIMZ is a veteran talent with a lot of experience.
Picking the Captain and Vice-Captain
I would pick Jame as the captain and mezii as the vice-captain.
Adding the boosters
I would pick the ‘I’ll Watch You Die’ booster for Jame as he is a menace with the AWP in his hand and would equip mezii with the ‘Helping Hand’ booster as he provides support and assists to his team.
