You have probably been sleeping under a rock if you have not heard about Movistar Riders. The all-Spanish roster has been steadily improving their game since they entered the tier-1 scene of professional CS:GO and show no signs of slowing down anytime soon. After an impressive performance at the IEM Cologne 2022 Play-In event, Movistar Riders have just managed to take down G2 in their first Bo3-series at the main event of IEM Cologne 2022.
Playing a major role in the recent success for the Spaniards is star player "SunPayus". Scoring the highest rating in their brawl against G2 and continuing his scarily high level of consistency, "SunPayus" is a name to look out for at the IEM Cologne 2022 event for sure. We had a talk with him after their victory against G2. When asked about his role as an AWP'er within the Movistar Riders, the Spanish star had the following to say:
"This team is amazing. I think it is quite easy for me to read the tier-1 teams, because there is so small of a difference between them. I only think that 2 or 3 teams in tier-1 are actually playing really really really good, everyone else is playing the same game."
To hear what teams "SunPayus" think are the 2-3 best right now in the world of CS:GO, as well as how he sees the rest of Movistar Riders' IEM Cologne 2022 campaign, you can watch the exclusive interview posted down below:
