Gen.G vs DRX Predictions

Valorant bookmakers have priced Gen.G as favourites to defeat DRX, who enter the match as 2.62 underdogs. Considering Gen. G's achievements this season, this makes sense; however, DRX have not looked bad in their recent games.

  • DRX have yet to lose a game in VCT 2024: Pacific Stage 1
  • Gen.G are 2-1
  • Gen.G defeated DRX in their last meeting

Head to Head


Gen.G and DRX last met during VCT 2024: Pacific Kickoff, when Gen.G won.

  • Gen.G 2-0 DRX – February 24, 2024

Gen.G Form


Gen.G are 1-1 after two weeks of VCT 2024: Pacific Stage 1 with a 1-2 loss against Paper Rex, 2-0 victory against Talon Esports, and a 2-0 sweep of DetonatioN FocusMe. Even though Gen.G lost to Paper Rex that isn't too worrying as Paper Rex are very strong, but likewise, beating DFM or Talon isn't anything spectacular.

This more or less sums up Gen.G throughout VCT 2024: Pacific Stage 1. They haven't shown anything spectacular, but they've also not performed poorly. Still, their incredible run at the start of the season, when Gen.G won VCT 2024: Pacific Kickoff without losing a game and then made the finals of VCT 2024: Masters Madrid, keeps their tag as the region's top Valorant team firm.

Even though we shouldn't ignore just how good Gen.G were early this season, they should have shown more in their recent games.

Gen.G Squad & Team News


Gen.G have not made any changes.

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

DRX Form


DRX are doing well, but that doesn't really say much. They ended VCT 2024: Pacific Kickoff in third-fourth place, with two 2-0 wins against DetonatioN FocusMe and Talon Esports and a 0-2 loss against Gen.G.

However, since the start of VCT 2024: Pacific Stage 1, DRX have racked in three consecutive wins against Team Secret, Global Esports, and T1. Beating Secret, Global Esports, and T1 isn't too exciting as those are some of the weaker teams in the league, but at least DRX are showing good form.

DRX Squad & Team News


No changes for DRX.

  • Kang "BeYN" Ha-bin

Verdict

The battle of the two Korean teams promises to be a fairly one-sided. Gen.G are priced as fairly solid favourites which makes sense, even though DRX have looked good recently. This might have to do with players changing roles, which has helped DRX produce cleaner games.

Gen.G are a very proactive team, especially on defence, which is a solid strategy, but it might not work here. DRX are very slow and efficient in absorbing pressure, which could spell trouble for the favourites.

Even though Gen.G are overall a better team, the stylistic differences give DRX an edge and a realistic possibility that they can cause an upset.
