Counter-Strike bookmakers have Astralis priced as 1.52 favourites to defeat Heroic, who enter the match as 2.35 underdogs. Considering Astralis are 2-0 up in the head-to-head since the start of the year, that sounds like a fair offer.

  • Astralis are in good form
  • Heroic have shown some improvement
  • Astralis have Heroic’s number in 2024

Head to Head


Astralis and Heroic have already met twice so far this year and both games ended in Astralis victory.

  • Astralis 13-11 Heroic – January 31, 2024
  • Astralis 13-7 Heroic – February 20, 2024

Astralis Form


Astralis have had their moments over the last year, but they never really found any serious traction. This changed in April when the Danish Counter-Strike esports squad reached the semifinals at Intel Extreme Master Chengdu 2024 and later added two more semifinal runs at ESL Pro League Season 19 and CCT Season 1 Global Finals.

Even though Astralis haven’t won a single event so far this season, they have looked much cleaner over the last two months and enter YaLLa Compass 2024 in excellent form – which explains why they’re the outright betting favourites to win the tournament.

Results-wise, Astralis have suffered just three losses over the last ten series – against FaZe Clan, Team Vitality, and Team Liquid. However, over that stretch, Astralis have also beaten FaZe and Liquid among other squads, proving that while they might lack consistency, Astralis are a capable team.

No new changes for Astralis.

Heroic Form


Heroic have yet to fully recover since the abrupt departure of two key players in November 2023, but they have found some success over the last few months. They placed top eight at Intel Extreme Masters Chengdu 2024 in April, reached the semifinal of BetBoom Dacha Belgrade 2024 in the middle of May, and more recently placed top-six at IEM Dallas 2024.

All that is a sign of improvement, although their results are still a bit shaky. Heroic are 5-5 over their last ten series, with defeats against Ninjas in Pyjamas, Team Spirit, MOUZ, Virtus.pro, and Vitality. Meanwhile, their five wins came against MIBR, M80, Natus Vincere, and BIG.

Still, while Heroic have a lot more to prove, they’re 3-1 over their last four games and seem to be in solid form ahead of their clash with the regional rivals.

Verdict

Astralis have beaten Heroic in their last two meetings this year, with 13-7 and 13-11, so naturally, they’re expected to win again on Wednesday. They’re also in great form, which helps believe that Astralis can secure their third head-to-head win, and even though Heroic have shown some improvement, they’ve not looked as good as Heroic.

Astralis should be considered the favourite team in this contest, but at 1.52, you have to have a really good reason to take their side. As much as this is Astralis’ game to lose, Heroic are more than capable of putting up a fight.
