Esports bookmakers have Team Vitality priced as 1.28 favourites to defeat Heroic, who enter the match as 3.50 underdogs. Considering Vitality are one of the top-rated teams in the world, the price seems fair, but they’ve not looked great so far in this tournament.

  • Team Vitality suffered a bad loss against ENCE this weekend
  • Heroic played well in their last three outings
  • Team Vitality need to step up

Team Vitality Form


Team Vitality entered IEM Katowice 2024 as the main favourites to win the tournament. Unfortunately, their performances so far have been disappointing.

As a directly invited team, Vitality have played just one series so far, against ENCE on Saturday, when they lost 1-2. Team Vitality showed some resistance in the series but were the worst team on the day, with losses on Vertigo (6-13) and Nuke (8-13).

Considering ENCE aren’t exactly one of the best teams in Katowice, that loss was concerning. Yet it was one of many shaky showings from the Bees, who have recently played close series against Team Falcons and Astralis.

Heroic Form


Heroic kicked off their IEM Katowice 2024 journey in the Play-in stage, where they defeated Astralis and BIG to secure a spot in the group stage. Unfortunately, despite their strong start, Heroic proved no match for G2 Esports who beat them 2-1 on Saturday.

On a more positive note, Heroic played a close series against G2 with 13-16 and 16-13 on the first two maps. They ran out of steam on Nuke and lost 6-13, but it was an overall solid showing from the team.

Playing a close game against G2 Esports suggests that Heroic are not as bad as they seemed and considering Vitality’s form, it’s not too crazy to believe that Heroic can do some damage. But a lot will depend on how well Vitality play on Monday.

No new changes for Heroic.

Verdict

Team Vitality are priced as strong favourites for this match which makes sense, but they’ve not looked amazing recently. Moreover, Heroic played a good series against G2 this weekend and previously posted good performances.

If Heroic can keep playing at that level and unless Team Vitality show some improvement, this could turn out to be a close series. It likely won’t be enough for Heroic to win, but they should be good for one map.
