Valorant bookmakers have priced Team Heretics as 1.53 favourites to defeat G2 Esports, who enter the match as 2.37 underdogs. Considering what Team Heretics have shown so far this season, that sounds like a fair price, even though G2 Esports are not pushovers.

  • Team Heretics are Europe’s second seed
  • G2 Esports are in great form
  • Both teams are capable of winning this series

Head to Head


G2 Esports and Team Heretics have yet to meet this season.

G2 Esports Form


G2 Esports had a slow start to the 2024 Valorant esports season. They looked somewhat competitive in VCT 2024: Americas Kickoff but couldn’t make it far, ending the tournament in fifth place with a 3-2 record.

However, while G2 Esports didn’t manage to show much early into the year, they found more success in VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1. They placed third in Group Alpha, barely reaching the knockout stage, only to shift into a higher gear in the playoffs.

Going against all the odds, G2 Esports defeated Cloud9, KRU Esports, and Leviatan to reach the VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1 finals, where they had to admit defeat to 100 Thieves. Despite the painful loss, G2 Esports secured the second seed from the Americas, and they didn’t disappoint in the first round of Masters Shanghai when they defeated T1.

Still, beating T1 doesn’t guarantee they’ll do well against Team Heretics.

Team Heretics Form


Team Heretics are a sneakily good team. They started the season with a runner-up finish in VCT 2024: EMEA Kickoff and later added a solid top-eight finish at VCT 2024: Masters Madrid. 

Following a strong start to the year, Heretics started to slip a bit during the VCT 2024: EMEA Stage 1 group stage, barely reaching the playoffs with a 3-2 record. But in the knockout stage, Heretics showed a completely different side of them.

In the playoffs, Team Heretics looked nearly unstoppable. They defeated Natus Vincere (2-0), FUT Esports (2-0), and Fnatic (2-0) to book a spot in the big finals. Unfortunately, they ran out of steam at the final hurdle and lost the rematch against Fnatic, who reverse-swept them 3-2. Since then, Heretics have played just one game – against Dragon Ranger Gaming, who they beat 2-0. 

Seeing Heretics lose the VCT 2024: EMEA Stage 1 final suggests they’re prone to choking. And while that might be the case, they’re still a quality team and arguably one of the top-five squads in Shanghai.

Verdict

G2 Esports did incredibly well in VCT 2024: Americas Stage 1, but the level of opponents they’ll face in Shanghai is much higher. That includes Team Heretics.

Even though G2 Esports have a few things up their sleeve and are more than capable of putting up a fight regardless of who they face, stopping Heretics in the form they’re in might be too much to ask. Heretics to sweep at 2.75 is a very inviting offer.
