Valorant bookmakers have FUT Esports priced as 1.07 favourites to defeat Team Heretics, who are 7.50 underdogs to win the first match of the VCT 2024 EMEA Kickoff. FUT were one of the top EMEA teams last season, whereas Heretics struggled to accomplish much, so it's fair to assume FUT should win.

  • Both teams made roster changes
  • FUT Esports look much stronger
  • Team Heretics made solid roster upgrades, but it likely won't be enough

Head to Head


Team Heretics and FUT Esports last met in October 2023, during Red Bull Home Ground #4 - EMEA Qualifier, when FUT Esports won.

FUT Esports Form


FUT Esports signed two new players during the VCT offseason, including Eray "yetujey" Budak and Mehmet "cNed" İpek, who filled in the gaps left behind by Konuralp "qw1" Şahin, Serhat "Muj" Yüksel, and Buğra "mojj" Kiraz.

The changes didn't make FUT Esports any weaker. It's fair to say FUT Esports now field an even scarier roster. Last Valorant season, FUT Esports held on relatively well and were one of Europe's top teams.

They finished the VCT EMEA League in third place and ended the year with a top-eight finish at VALORANT Champions 2023. Since then, FUT Esports have competed in some lesser tournaments, including Red Bull Home Ground #4, where they placed third and Convergence 2023, which they won in December.

Team Heretics Form


Team Heretics didn't produce much in the 2023 Valorant season. They started the year with a 17th-32nd-place finish at VCT 2023: LOCK//IN São Paulo, to which they added an eighth-place finish at EMEA League and fifth-sixth at VCT 2023: EMEA Last Chance Qualifier.

During the offseason, we saw Heretics compete in Red Bull Home Ground #4 - EMEA Qualifier, where they placed third and LVP - Crossfire Cup 2023, where Heretics suffered another early exit, ending the tournament in last place following a loss against UCAM Esports Club.

This team has some solid pieces that are not to be ignored. Enes "RieNs" Ecirli looked good in the few games he has played with Heretics; however, compared to FUT Esports, Team Heretics are still miles behind quality-wise.

In October 2023, Team Heretics signed Enes "RieNs" Ecirli, Mert "Wo0t" Alkan, and Dominykas "MiniBoo" Lukaševičius.

Verdict

Team Heretics were one of the weakest teams in VCT EMEA last season, and even with the recent roster changes, it's unlikely that they'll manage to compete for the trophy. FUT Esports, on the other side, were one of the top Valorant teams in the region, and with the addition of Eray "yetujey" Budak and Mehmet "cNed" İpek, they'll likely retain that tag heading into the 2024 season.

FUT Esports are objectively a better team and should win this series. Admittedly, this match will be the first after a long break, so we should consider that the teams will be a bit rusty, but even then, it's difficult to side with the underdogs.
