G2 Esports vs Team Liquid Predictions


G2 Esports and Team Liquid will clash on Wednesday, May 29, in the lower bracket final of Group A at Intel Extreme Masters Dallas 2024.

Counter-Strike bookmakers have G2 Esports priced as 1.68 favourites to defeat Team Liquid, who enter the match as 2.05 underdogs. Neither team looked incredible so far this tournament, but G2 Esports defeated MOUZ in the previous round and, with that, left a massive statement.

  • G2 Esports recently defeated the current no.1 team in the world
  • Team Liquid have so far beaten Complexity and Team Falcons
  • It could be a close game

Head to Head


Team Liquid last met with G2 Esports during Intel Extreme Masters Chengdu 2024, when they won in three maps.

  • Team Liquid 2-1 G2 Esports – April 8, 2024

G2 Esports Form


G2 Esports started Intel Extreme Masters Dallas 2024 with a close 13-10 victory against Team Falcons, to which they added a rough 0-2 defeat against Team Vitality in the upper bracket semifinal. Losing against Vitality with just 11 rounds put a huge question mark above G2 Esports and their chances to qualify for the next stage, but they quickly proved the doubters wrong.

In the lower bracket semifinal, G2 Esports defeated the current no.1 Counter-Strike esports team in the world, MOUZ (2-1) and, showed a much improved performance – suggesting they have what it takes to take one step closer to the title. But first, they have to make it past Liquid, who – like G2 Esports – looked decent so far this tournament.

Team Liquid Form


Team Liquid had a decent run-up to this point in IEM Dallas 2024. They defeated Complexity in the first round with 13-6, then suffered a shock loss to 9z Team in the upper bracket finals, and bounced back with a 2-1 victory against Team Falcons.

So far, Liquid have yet to defeat any good teams and their win against Falcons wasn't as dominant as it perhaps should be. Liquid needed to reverse sweep to come out ahead, and even on the final two maps, they dropped 11 and 10 rounds.

Overall, Liquid have done enough to reach the lower bracket final of Group A, but they haven't looked amazing.

Verdict

Team Liquid and G2 Esports have done enough to reach the lower bracket final of IEM Dallas 2024 Group A, but it's fair to say that G2 Esports have shown more. They defeated Falcons and MOUZ, whereas Liquid have only managed to defeat Complexity and Falcons.

Admittedly, all of the two teams' wins were close and don't necessarily indicate great form, but it's easy to see why G2 Esports are considered stronger – as they did beat the current top-rated team in the world, MOUZ.

This comes with an asterisk. While beating MOUZ sounds great, MOUZ have been struggling, so it's not like it takes much to make it past them. G2 Esports still look like the most likely winner, yet Liquid are good enough to force a close game.
