Head to Head


G2 Esports and 9z Team have yet to meet this season.

9z Team Form


9z Team were considered one of the weakest teams attending Intel Extreme Masters Dallas 2024. However, the South American team proved all the doubters wrong and produced an incredible run to the IEM Dallas 2024 playoffs.

They won Group A by beating the current no.1 CS team MOUZ (13-9), Team Liquid (2-1), and Team Vitality (2-0), proving to the world that they can dance with the best CS esports teams in the world. And while some may consider their run a fluke, 9z Team have shown a lot of good things en route to the semis.

G2 Esports Form


G2 Esports have gone against all the odds and reached the semifinals of IEM Dallas 2024 despite playing without their in-game leader. While their road to this point was anything but smooth, G2 Esports managed to take some big scalps, beating MOUZ, Team Liquid, and FaZe Clan, who they swept (2-0) in the quarterfinals.

Having made it so far, G2 Esports now face a real possibility to win the whole thing although they have looked a bit shaky at times and had to rely mostly on their strong firepower to edge out wins. Still, their performance against FaZe was inspiring, which also explains why G2 Esports are priced as such massive favourites.

No new changes for G2 Esports.

Verdict

9z Team have already made it further than anyone expected them to, and as they get ready for the semifinals, it’s fair to question whether their road so far was nothing more than a fluke. They did beat the unconvincing MOUZ and made it past Team Liquid – who were never expected to reach very deep.

But 9z Team also played an incredible series against Team Vitality – and if they can show a similar performance on Saturday, they stand a real chance to defeat G2 Esports. Still, we have to consider that G2 Esports are not as weak as they seemed, and their firepower alone will be tough to deal with for 9z.

I’m giving 9z Team a map, but I would tame my expectations about their chances to defeat G2 Esports.
