The best Valorant bookmakers have Gen.G priced as 1.53 favourites to defeat G2 Esports, who enter the match as 2.50 underdogs. Since Gen.G have won a lot more this season than G2 Esports, this offer makes sense, but both teams have looked quite solid so far in Shanghai.

  • G2 Esports are 4-0 ahead of this clash
  • Gen.G are also undefeated so far in this tournament
  • G2 Esports are potent underdogs

Head to Head


G2 Esports and Gen.G have never met before.

G2 Esports Form


G2 Esports had a slow start to the 2024 Valorant esports season, but they showed up in Stage 1, placing second in VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1 and they didn't stop there.

Despite not being expected to do well in China, G2 Esports made it through the group stage with wins against T1 (2-1) and Team Heretics (2-1), proving they can compete with some of the top teams in the world. Even in the playoffs, G2 Esports didn't disappoint, adding two more victories against Paper Rex (2-1) and Team Heretics (2-1) for the second time.

A big reason for G2 Esports' success is their ability to adapt to situations in games, quickly figuring out ways to punish their opponents. Of the four victories G2 Esports have managed, three were reverse-sweeps which just further confirms that statement.

G2 Esports Squad & Team News


G2 Esports have not made any roster changes.

  • Jonah "JonahP" Pulice
  • Trent "trent" Cairns
  • Jacob "valyn" Batio
  • Nathan "leaf" Orf
  • Jacob "icy" Lange

Gen.G Form


Gen.G are one of the most consistent Valorant esports teams of the season, having already proven their might with a VCT 2024: Pacific Kickoff title and two runner-up finishes in VCT 2024: Masters Madrid and VCT Stage 1.

They've not slowed down much in Shanghai, with four consecutive victories against Leviatan (2-1), FunPlus Phoenix (2-1), Fnatic (2-1), and 100 Thieves (2-0). Like G2 Esports, Gen.G have proven to be an elite team, more than capable of winning the whole thing.

And like G2, Gen.G proved their ability to adapt to situations, as well as a relatively deep map pool, which makes them a very tough team to crack in a best-of-three fixtures.

Gen.G Squad & Team News


Gen.G have not made any roster changes.

  • Kim "Meteor" Tae-o
  • Kim "t3xture" Na-ra
  • Kim "Lakia" Jong-min
  • Byeon "Munchkin" Sang-beom
  • Kim "Karon" Won-tae

Verdict

This one is tough to call, as we have two teams who've proven their worth in China, both displaying qualities you'd expect from serious title contenders. Gen.G have a more proven track record, as they already made the finals in Madrid, but with the way G2 Esports are playing now, you'd have a hard time doubting their chances to win.

I'm giving Gen.G a slight edge due to their experience, but at 2.50, you really have to consider taking G2 Esports to upset the VCT 2024: Pacific Stage 1 runners-up.
