Valorant bookmakers have G2 Esports priced as 1.35 favourites to defeat Cloud9, who enter the match as 2.90 underdogs with Stake. G2 Esports have recently performed well in Shanghai and already proved their worth in Stage 1, so that offer doesn't sound too wrong.

  • G2 Esports reached the finals of VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1
  • Cloud9 had a good run through Stage 1
  • G2 Esports defeated Cloud9 in their last meeting

Head to Head


Cloud9 last met with G2 Esports in the Knockout Stage of VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1, when G2 Esports won. 

  • G2 Esports 2-0 Cloud9 – May 8, 2024

G2 Esports Form


G2 Esports enter VCT 2024: Americas Stage 2 as one of the leading favourites to win the title, and rightly so. They had a slow start to the 2024 Valorant esports season but found their momentum in Stage 1, when G2 Esports reached the finals and qualified for VCT 2024: Masters Shanghai.

In China, G2 Esports didn't slow down and posted a handful of impressive results. They made it through the group stage without a single defeat and fought their way to the lower bracket finals with wins against Paper Rex (2-1) and Team Heretics (2-1), suffering just two losses against the eventual finalists – Gen.G and Team Heretics.

G2's resurgence is nothing short of impressive, although it remains to be seen whether they'll manage to carry over the momentum to the domestic league.

Cloud9 Form


Cloud9 haven't accomplished much so far this season. They ended VCT 2024: Americas Kickoff in seventh-ninth-place and Stage 1 in fifth-sixth.

Despite the underwhelming placements, Cloud9 have done relatively well. They placed second in Group Alpha in VCT 2024: EMEA Stage 1, with a 5-1 record, which included victories against Leviatan, Evil Geniuses, LOUD, FURIA Esports, and MIBR and just one defeat against the defending champions, 100 Thieves.

Even with those results, there are reasons to doubt Cloud9's chances to win on Monday since they already lost to G2 Esports. But there are other factors to consider.

Verdict

G2 Esports defeated Cloud9 2-0 the last time the two teams met in the Knockout Stage of VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1. But while G2 Esports won, they came close to dropping Ascent (15-13), suggesting that Cloud9 can cause them issues on the right map pick.

G2 Esports are also likely a bit fatigued as they haven't had a break since the start of Stage 1, which could lead to worse showings at the start of Stage 2. This shouldn't put them in any serious danger of losing the series, but Cloud9 are a capable team, so there's a good chance we see a closer affair.
