Team Vitality vs KOI Predictions


Team Vitality and KOI will meet on Thursday, May 2, in the fifth week of VALORANT Champions Tour 2024: EMEA League - Stage 1. It'll mark their first meeting since VCT 2024: EMEA Kickoff when Vitality won, and according to esports betting odds, they should win again.

Valorant bookmakers have Team Vitality priced as 1.25 favourites to defeat KOI, who enter the match as 3.75 underdogs. Considering how little KOI have accomplished this split, this price looks fair; however, we have to note that Vitality haven't looked great recently.

  • Team Vitality didn't look good in VCT 2024: EMEA Stage 1 Week 4
  • KOI have recently shown some improvement
  • Vitality need to win, if they wish to qualify for the playoffs

Head to Head


Team Vitality last met with KOI during VCT 2024: EMEA Kickoff when they won.

  • Team Vitality 2-0 KOI – February 26, 2024

Team Vitality Form


Team Vitality are 3-2, which is good enough for them to sit in fourth place in Group Alpha, above Team Liquid and below Fnatic, Karmine Corp, and BBL Esports. And since only three teams can advance to the playoffs, Team Vitality desperately need to win on Thursday.

Luckily, they're up against one of the worst-performing teams in the league, and as the Valorant esports betting odds suggest, Team Vitality should win the series without any issues. It's hard to argue with that, but Team Vitality didn't look good in their last two outings.

At the start of VCT 2024: EMEA Stage 1, Vitality lost to Gentle Mates (0-2), and on Friday, needed a reverse sweep to defeat GIANTX. Those results are far from what you'd expect from one of the league's top teams.

KOI Form


KOI haven't won much this season. After struggling in VCT 2024: EMEA Kickoff, where KOI placed sixth, they also struggled to find any success in Stage 1, as KOI enter the final week of the stage without a single win to their name.

They've so far lost to Team Liquid, BBL Esports, Fnatic, and last week, they added another defeat against Karmine Corp. On a more positive note, KOI won a map against Karmine Corp and came just a couple of rounds away from winning the final map.

This looks very promising, but while KOI deserve some praise for forcing Karmine Corp to their limits, the reality is much different. It wasn't that KOI performed well, but rather that Karmine Corp didn't play well on the day.f

Verdict

Team Vitality didn't amaze in their last two fixtures against Gentle Mates and GIANTX, which suggests they might also struggle against KOI. But it's hard to say KOI are any better than the two teams.

They nearly defeated Karmine Corp on Friday, but that more had to do with Karmine Corp playing poorly rather than KOI showing anything exceptional. So, as much as KOI might look capable of capitalising on Vitality's poor form, Team Vitality are still a vastly stronger team.
