GamerLegion vs Virtus.pro Predictions


GamerLegion and Virtus.pro will meet on Tuesday, May 7, 2024, in the first round of ESL Pro League Season 19 Playoffs. It'll mark their first meeting since Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2024 when GamerLegion won, but according to the esports betting odds, Virtus.pro should get their revenge.

Counter-Strike betting sites have GamerLegion priced as 3.75 underdogs and Virtus.pro as 1.30 favourites for the upcoming match, which isn't too surprising. Even though GamerLegion defeated Virtus.pro in their last clash, Virtus.pro have looked much better over the last few months.

  • GamerLegion ended the group stage with a 3-1 record
  • Virtus.pro had to fight through the lower bracket
  • Virtus.pro (#9) are better ranked than GamerLegion (#29)

Head to Head


GamerLegion last met with Virtus.pro during Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2024, when they won, but with a different lineup.

  • GamerLegion 2-1 Virtus.pro – February 1, 2024

GamerLegion Form


GamerLegion made a couple of roster changes in April following a disappointing run at PGL Major Copenhagen 2024, where they placed 17th-19th. However, even with new players joining, GamerLegion haven't accomplished much over the next month.

And yet, despite the underwhelming showings, GamerLegion reached the ESL Pro League Season 19 Playoffs, through the mid-bracket of Group C, with wins against ENCE (2-0), FORZE (2-1), and again ENCE (2-0) in the deciding match.

Although a solid accomplishment, GamerLegion haven't had to defeat any strong opponents to make it this far, which makes it easier to doubt them and their ability to reach further. However, like GL, Virtus.pro could've shown more in the group stage.

No changes for GamerLegion.

  • Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski

Virtus.pro Form


Virtus.pro added Denis "electroNic" Sharipov to the roster before the start of ESL Pro League Season 19, which could've contributed to their slow start to the tournament. They lost against Fnatic (1-2) in the first round, then bounced back with a 2-0 sweep of SAW, only to get knocked down to the lower bracket by FaZe Clan (0-2).

In the lower bracket, Virtus.pro finally found momentum and swept Fnatic and SAW to qualify for the playoffs. And while VP still didn't look great against Fnatic, they turned things around with a dominant win against SAW, suggesting they might've found their form.

No new changes for Virtus.pro.

  • Dzhami "Jame" Ali
  • Evgeniy "FL1T" Lebedev
  • Petr "fame" Bolyshev
  • David "n0rb3r7" Daniyelyan

Verdict

GamerLegion have exceeded expectations by reaching the ESL Pro League Season 19 Playoffs, but their road will likely end here. Even though Virtus.pro haven't looked as good as many expected them to in the group stage; they performed well against SAW in the final round, which might indicate that Virtus.pro found traction.

Their poor start to the tournament should be taken with a grain of salt due to the recent roster changes. And while we shouldn't ignore their iffy showings, Virtus.pro have looked much improved in the final two series.

GamerLegion are a capable team, but at 2.10, I like Virtus.pro to sweep better.
