Valorant bookmakers have Cloud9 priced as 1.53 favourites to defeat G2 Esports, who enter the match as 2.37 underdogs. Since Cloud9 lost just one series in the group stage, that price sounds fair, but G2 Esports have also shown some good things over the last few weeks.

  • Cloud9 ended the group stage with a 5-1 record
  • G2 Esports are 3-3
  • It could be a close game

Head to Head 


Cloud9 and G2 Esports have yet to meet this season.

Cloud9 Form


Cloud9 ended the group stage with an impressive 5-1 record and +20 round difference. Their only loss of the stage came against 100 Thieves in the third week, whereas Cloud9 has beaten Leviatan (2-1), Evil Geniuses (2-1), LOUD (2-1), FURIA (2-1), and MIBR (2-0).

Winning five of six games played is a huge accomplishment, but Cloud9 also dropped a map in four of those five series, including games against weaker opponents. So even though Cloud9 have been getting things done, they haven't looked amazing.

No changes for Cloud9.

G2 Esports Form


G2 Esports ended the VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1 group stage with a 3-3 record, which was just enough to reach the playoffs. Over the six games played, G2 Esports have lost against Leviatan (1-2), 100 Thieves (0-2), and LOUD (0-2) and defeated Evil Geniuses (2-0), FURIA (2-0), and MIBR (2-0).

Beating EG, MIBR, and FURIA is hardly worth celebrating knowing that those are the only three teams from Group Omega who didn't reach the playoffs. However, even in their losses, G2 Esports performed well and they would've easily added at least one more win to their resume had they not choked in crucial moments.

Overall, G2 Esports looks like they're a capable Valorant esports team with enough individual talent to face any squad in VCT 2024: Americas. But their tendency to slip in critical moments is their main weakness.

Verdict

Cloud9 have won more games than G2 Esports, and unlike G2, they've beaten other playoff teams. However, even though Cloud9's win percentage is higher, they've also consistently dropped maps and there's nothing that would suggest this time it'll be any different.

This is Cloud9's game to lose, but there's a good chance we'll see all three maps played.
