Team Vitality vs GamerLegion Predictions


Team Vitality and GamerLegion will clash on Monday, February 19, in the first round of PGL Major Copenhagen 2024: European RMR B. Team Vitality are expected to win; however, they’ve had a few iffy showings recently.

Counter-Strike betting sites have Team Vitality priced as 1.20 favourites to defeat GamerLegion, who enter the match as 4.33 underdogs. Considering Vitality are the current second-highest-rated team in the world, this offer makes sense, but in best-of-one games, it’s now wise to underestimate the outsiders.

  • GamerLegion showed some glimpses of greatness earlier this month

Head to Head


GamerLegion and Team Vitality have yet to meet on Counter-Strike 2.

Team Vitality Form


Team Vitality are the current second-highest-rated Counter-Strike team in the world, which is largely due to their success in late 2023 and early 2024. The French squad won BLAST Premier: Fall Final 2023 and BLAST Premier: World Final 2023 in November-December, and in late January added another trophy from BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024.

However, despite showing great form, Vitality crumbled at Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2024, where they lost against ENCE and Heroic and ended the tournament in 13th-16th place. This isn’t a good look for them, and it makes it fair to question whether Vitality should be priced as such massive favourites for this match.

GamerLegion Form


GamerLegion haven’t won much since their shock run to the BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 grand finals in May. They’ve attended 10 A- or S-Tier events and have managed just one top-six finish over that stretch.

So far this year, Gamerlegion have attended BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024 and IEM Katowice 2024, placing ninth-12th in both tournaments. This doesn’t look too inspiring; however, GamerLegion performed fairly well in both competitions.

Over the two events, GamerLerion have managed a 4-4 record, with wins against FaZe, M80, Virtus.pro, and Monte. Meanwhile, the four losses came against Liquid, FaZe, MOUZ, and Heroic. In most of the losses, GamerLegion looked very competitive and often came just a couple of rounds short of securing a win.

So even though GamerLegion’s record isn’t great, they’re playing relatively well.

Verdict

Team Vitality are expected to crush GamerLegion, which might sound fair. They’re higher rated and have won big events across the last few months; however, Vitality also didn’t look too good in Katowice.

On the other side, GamerLegion haven’t won anything in nearly one year but have produced solid games over the last couple of months. Even though Vitality are still a better team and will likely win this game, I would much rather be on the side of GamerLegion on the round handicap market.
