Evil Geniuses vs Virtus.pro: prediction and bets on The International 10, October 9, 2021

Match info

On Saturday, October 9, 2021, the Evil Geniuses and Virtus.pro will play their next match in the group stage (Group A) of Dota 2 The International 10, which will begin at 5 p.m. local time (6 p.m. Moscow time).

Meeting statistics

Both teams slowed down after a successful start and lost a lot of points in the second gameday. The upcoming match looks incredibly important in terms of fighting for the Top 4 in the group and qualification for the upper bracket. We will find out very soon which of the teams will be stronger and take the points.

The current form of the Evil Geniuses

Evil Geniuses, after a very painful defeat by PSG.LGD in the final of WePlay AniMajor with a score of 0-3, went on a long vacation. For almost three months, the guys from the North American organization were just resting and preparing for The International 10. It should be noted that the first gameday was completely dictated by the Evil Geniuses - they took two confident victories. The fact is also that their position 1 player Artour ‘Arteezy’ Babaev excelled on Day 1, but with the onset of the second day, his play faded away. The Evil Geniuses failed in both of their Day 2 matches and managed to earn only one point in the face-off with Alliance in which ‘Arteezy’ looked great.

The truth is, on the other maps, everything was not so rosy for the Evil Geniuses with their Canadian player. Maybe, in the match with Alliance, the Evil Geniuses were not ready for Silencer’s mid-lane, but talking about this in regard to any team at the main tournament of the year looks ridiculous. Nevertheless, we believe that the Evil Geniuses will get a grip after such a disastrous day and will be able to show a game of a much higher level.

The last results of the Evil Geniuses:

● Draw against Alliance 1-1
● Lost against IG 0-2
● Won against T1 2-0
● Won against Team Aster 2-0
● Lost against PSG.LGD 0-3

The current form of Virtus.pro

Virtus.pro managed to play five matches in the tournament thus far. The first day was very successful for them. The team scored two victories and drew with OG in a crazy match. The Russian guys showed a good game, although they experienced minimal problems at the start of the game with Team Undying. On the second day, ‘The Bears’ could not earn points. Perhaps they a bit underestimated T1, especially after the way they played on an opening day, but the drafts seem to be a more logical reason. Many blamed the team for the frequent pick of Dawnbreaker, but as the matches of the second day showed, Virtus.pro have additional problems with a good late carry.

It seems that ‘The Bears’ have a certain number of heroes prepared for each stage of the game and they just don’t want to take others. For instance, with Sven, they played ideally on second maps of their confrontations, but the team stubbornly took this particular hero even when it was clear things were not going as expected. Apparently, the guys are confident in their abilities and while they are testing, they are looking closely and don’t want to disclose their weak sides. But in matches with serious opponents, they can be punished for this.

The latest results of Virtus.pro:

● Lost against IG 0-2
● Lost against T1 0-2
● Draw agains OG 1-1
● Won against Alliance 2-0
● Won against Undying 2-0

Head-to-head encounters

The history of encounters between these two features many matches, but the teams didn’t meet each other in these lineups.

Match analytics

The Evil Geniuses and Virtus.pro both failed on the second day at The International 10. But the former was still able to squeeze in one map unlike ‘The Bears’, and in face-to-face confrontations with equal skills (+ -), the Evil Geniuses have more experience, which can play a decisive role.

N1 Bet, one of the highly-rated eSports betting sites, offers 3.34 odds for the Evil Geniuses to win, which looks like a good option.
