Counter-Strike bookmakers have G2 Esports priced as 1.52 favourites to defeat Falcons, who enter the match as 2.35 underdogs. Considering G2 Esports defeated the Falcons a month ago, that sounds fair, but G2 Esports won't have their full roster available for the upcoming series.

  • G2 Esports will compete without their in-game leader
  • Team Falcons lost to G2 (1-2) on April 27
  • G2 Esports are in good form

Head to Head


Team Falcons and G2 Esports last met during ESL Pro League Season 19, when G2 Esports won.

  • G2 Esports 2-1 Team Falcons – April 27, 2024

G2 Esports Form


G2 Esports enter Intel Extreme Masters 2024 in good form. They're 4-1 over their last five series and have recently placed top eight at ESL Pro League Season 19. That placement is slightly underwhelming for G2's standards, however, they did get eliminated from the event by the eventual champions and the current no.1 team in the world – MOUZ. So it's not all that bad.

The same thing happened in IEM Shanghai 2024, where G2 Esports reached the semifinals, but lost against MOUZ (1-2). If we look further back at the end of March, G2 Esports ended PGL Major Copenhagen 2024 in the semifinals, with a close 1-2 defeat to Natus Vincere, who ended up winning the event.

Even though G2 Esports' recent tournament placements aren't exceptional, their only defeats came against some of the elite CS teams.

G2 Esports Squad & Team News


G2 Esports will attend IME Dallas 2024 without their in-game leader, Rasmus "HooXi" Nielsen. He will be replaced by Jacky "Stewie2K" Yip.

  • Nemanja "huNter-" Kovač
  • Nikola "NiKo" Kovač
  • Ilya "m0NESY" Osipov
  • Nemanja "nexa" Isaković
  • Jacky "Stewie2K" Yip

Team Falcons Form


Team Falcons have yet to win a tournament this season, and they've not managed a notable placement since February, when they ended IEM Katowice 2024 in third-fourth place. Since then, the Falcons exited BLAST Premier: Spring Showdown 2024 in ninth-16th-place and crashed out of ESL Pro League Season 19 in 21st-28th, following a 1-2 loss to G2 Esports.

Just over one week ago, Team Falcons attended BetBoom Dacha Belgrade 2024, where they did well, placed second in Group A, and ended the tournament in third-fourth place following a 0-2 loss to Team Spirit.

Overall, Team Falcons have shown they can be competitive and they've found some success in bigger events. But they're far from one of the top Counter-Strike esports teams in the world.

Team Falcons Squad & Team News


No changes for Team Falcons.

  • Marco "Snappi" Pfeiffer
  • Emil "Magisk" Reif
  • Pavle "maden" Bošković
  • Alvaro "SunPayus" Garcia

Verdict

G2 Esports defeated Team Falcons 2-1 last month, and they're expected to have an easy time making it past Falcons on Monday. That sounds about right, considering G2 Esports' performances over the last couple of months; however, they will be without their in-game leader for the upcoming tournament.

How much that will affect the team remains to be seen, but we can expect a slower start while G2 Esports adapt to playing without HooXi. This could potentially help Team Falcons get their revenge, and while they definitely have the talent to defeat G2, I would rather bet on this being a closer fixture.
