Efrag and VP are matched up against each other for the IEM Katowice 2016 tournament on the 3rd of March 2016 at 19:00 CET.
Efrag are one of the top CIS teams. They used to be one of the teams that could constantly upset the top teams ( EnVyUs , Fnatic etc). Ofcourse this does come down to the unfamiliarity of the team which gives them a huge advantage. Recently however Efrag have not been in any decent form. They have not been able to strengthen their hold over the CIS region, with losses to local CIS teams looming large in front of them. During their latest matches, they did manage a mini comeback ofcourse however it is highly doubtful that is enough in order to win against a top tier team such as Virtus Pro
Virtus Pro is probably one of the only teams in the top tier of teams that can easily get overturned by Efrag. Virtus Pro are known to be shaky at best. This match’s decision will depend heavily on how Virtus Pro has been performing in the previous matches. The match is towards the business end of the Group stage. The teams that would be progressing into the next stage would be almost clear now. As such if VP has not been performing too well in their previous matches in the Group B, it might be likely that they will not take this match as seriously as it demands
The Prediction : 70%-30% VP
The bet : low on Efrag
