Dignitas need every win in order to go for the 7th place spot, or a higher seeding into the relegation tournament. However, this will be a very difficult game for them to win. I suspect that they will try and drag out the game to 50+ minutes in order to try and win a late fight, and use the long death timers to push and gain objectives, to potentially finish the game.

Immortals will want to redeem themselves after losing to CLG,  I expect them to snowball very early, push towers and get objectives which they can snowball into gold leads, and eventually victory.

Overall, it is highly likely that Immortals win this match based on their mechanics and macro play being far superior to that if Dignitas.

Chance of victory: Team Dignitas: 10% : Immortals: 90%
