"It's going to be a fast match for Team A."

Does this mean that team A will win? I am not sure what it means, because it's going to be a fast match for both team A or the team team A is playing against regardless of who wins. I was watching an esport match and a member of team B said: "It's going to be a fast match for team A."

  • Typically, it would describe the winning team. If they had meant the losing team, they would probably have said something like: It's going to be a quick defeat for team A. – Jason Bassford Feb 2 '19 at 18:16

You're assumption is correct. Often this means that team A is more likely to win the team B.
