It’s Virtus Pro vs Evil Geniuses in the quarter finals of the ESL One Genting Minor. The CIS powerhouse take on the TI5 Champions.
VP were relentless in the early days of the tournament only to meet their arch nemesis Team Secret in the upper bracket finals. But what a game that was, even though the scoreline suggests an easy victory for Secret but the reality was totally opposite of that. VP made it very difficult for Secret especially in the game 1, which saw them make a comeback against megacreeps. If not for one misplay, it might have been a different story all together. But VP need to get this loss behind them and put in a dominant display against EG to keep their tournament hopes alive.
Nobody thought EG will make the playoffs, but they have out witted their opponents and naysayers with their performances in this tournament. The move to play Sumail as an offlaner is proving to be a masterstroke as his performances have been no less than outstanding and might even be the best offlaner in this tournament.
Prediction – It’s going to be an amazing match. The talent on show is exciting and both the teams have things to prove. Expect no less than a bloodbath! But for EG to win they’ll need to bring out a hell of a performance against VP. But we know this VP squad are on a different level than those EG have faced until now and I’m going to back VP to take this one just because this EG team needs a lot of polishing to take on the top teams in the world. A victory for VP looks most likely.
My odds for this match: Virtus Pro 67:33 Evil Geniuses
