V-Gaming vs Khan: prediction and bets on Champions League 2021 Season 5, November 19, 2021
V-Gaming and Khan will meet in the group stage of the Dota 2 Champions League 2021 Season 5, on Friday, November 19, 2021. The match will be played online, starting at 10 a.m. local time (11 a.m. Moscow time).
While Valve continues to quietly update the rules for the upcoming DPC (it is still unclear how much time will pass until the official launch announcement), we continue to observe Tier-2/3 tournaments throughout the world. In the CIS and Europe regions, it is now the Dota 2 Champions League on the schedule. The group stage began on November 8. It will last until November 21, and we will focus on a battle between V-Gaming and Khan.
The current form of V-Gaming Our analysis starts with V-Gaming, which, according to bookmakers with betting bonuses, are the notional favorites in this duel. The Kazakh side carries such an attribute for a reason. The majority of the current V-Gaming roster won D2CL season 3 and finished in the TOP-3 in season 4. They have good performance in their ’category’. The entire championship team from the third season has made it this far. The only change is that Anton ’Antoha’ Marchenko has taken the place of Arman ’Malady’ Orazbaev in the position 5 support slot. The new season has not begun for V-Gaming in a promising way. In theory, a defat to Hydra is understandable given the presence of notable players in the roster of the rivals, but V-Gaming’s prospects remain shakey.
The top picked V-Gaming hero in Patch 7.30 is Disruptor (17 matches, 70% win), while their most successful hero is Specter (5 matches, 100% win).
The latest results of V-Gaming: • Won against the Galactic Aliens 2-0 • Won against the B8 Esports 2-1 • Lost against Winstrike 1-2 • Lost against Hydra 1-2 • Won against NoMarci 2-1
The current form of Khan In this encounter, Khan are seen as underdogs, and not by accident. Khan had a great season last year, surprising both the audience and the opponents on multiple occasions. Khan have undergone a significant squad reconstruction, with only three players from the original lineup remaining. Yaroslav ’Pikachu’ Vasilenko and Alexander ’Accell’ Litvienko are two newcomers to the roster. By the way, the latter replaced Antoha, who had moved to V-Gaming. Khan lost to Creepwave, the defending champions who competed with the modified squad, at the start of the tournament. That defeat is not of a big scale given that Khan don’t have the assets to fight properly with opponents of such caliber.
The top picked Khan hero is Morphling (9 matches, 44% win). They had the most success with Tiny (3 matches, 100% win).
The latest results of Khan: • Lost against B8 Esports 0-2 • Lost against Team Generation 0-2 • Won against PuckChamp 2-0 • Won against Brame 2-0 • Lost against Creepwave 1-2
Head-to-head encounters: There are no records of previous meetings between these two sides.
