What was supposed to be the deciding match is actually a mere formality. Both Virtus.pro and G2 have been eliminated, having lost to Complexity and ForZe in the last round. But, they still have a formality to complete – the final round in which neither team has anything to play for.

Could G2 really finish this tournament without a single win? They’re currently zero from four, but Virtus.pro could be the final nail in their coffin. Everything is possible ahead of this one, so let’s kick things off and see what this formality of a match has in store for us!
G2 vs. Virtus.pro Predictions
G2 and Virtus.pro played on May 1st during DreamHack Masters Spring. G2 took the win with 2:0 on the scoreboard, not surprising considering VP’s poor form a the time.
The CIS side did have a great start to the year, but everything started going downhill from February onward.
G2 Betting Preview
The meme above tells you everything you need to know, really! G2 could go down without a single shot fired, really! Even though I said there’s absolutely nothing to play for here, that’s not entirely true. You see, teams get $5,000 for each group stage win.
- But, what happened to G2?
- How did they go from being the most consistent team in Europe to a choke-prone outsider in the group they were heavily labeled as the favorites in?
- Well, perhaps the summer break took a toll on the players?
- Perhaps that opening loss against Sinners traumatized them?
I mean, they weren’t awful, two matches could’ve easily gone in their favor. It’s just that they kept failing to clinch crucial rounds and close maps out. They’ll have to work on that ahead of the PGL Major, that’s for sure!
Virtus.pro Betting Preview
Finally, Virtus.pro! Even though Virtus.pro defeated Sinners in the third round, they fell short against Complexity today. If VP had defeated Complexity, G2’s win over ForZe would mean they’re still in the mix. But, it is what it is… I guess!
Since there’s noting to play for her (except $5,000 for every group stage win), there’s really no point in trying to separate these two any further. Let’s jump to the conclusion and wrap this formal puppy up!
Wrapping Things Up
Let’s wrap up this formality of a match. Unsurprisingly, here’s what I’m going with here:
There’s nothing separating these two. I mean, it was always going to be like that in this type of a match with nothing to play for. In terms of the odds, G2 are the slightest of favorites, though it doesn’t mean anything.
If you’re inclined to test your luck, you might as well side with the meme way. Virtus.pro to win and G2 to finish the event without a single win in five matches. AT –109, low stake meme bet is what I’m going with for this one! Thank you all for reading our G2 vs. Virtus.pro predictions!
