The first day of DreamLeague Season 13: The Leipzig Major is here. 4 groups, 16 teams, $1,000,000 prize pool. We will go through two of the most interesting matches and analyse them.
Vici Gaming @ 1.65
One of the most interesting matches of the opening phase. Vici Gaming and Team Secret are two biggest favourites to win DreamLeague Season 13: The Leipzig Major. Two biggest favourites are placed together in group B, where only the top two teams will advance to the Upper Bracket of the playoffs. Their last clash was at ONE Esports Dota 2 World Pro Invitational Singapore in the Lower Bracket round 2, where Vici Gaming took the win with a 2-1 score. Secret finished at 5-6th place, while Vici went all the way through lower bracket to the grand finals, where they beat EG with clear 3-0. Let’s keep in mind Team Secret played with a stand-in that tournament. MidOne replaced YapzOr at position 4. Now YapzOr is back in the team, and it will be interesting to see how they will perform. On the other side, Vici Gaming does look like the best team in the world at the moment. Their laning stage is strong, their cores are carrying them, and supports are always on the spot. We think there are few teams in the world right now who could match Vici in terms of aggressive plays and their dominance. For those reasons, we are giving a slight edge to Vici Gaming in this best of 3 series.
Evil Geniuses @ 1.20
We are so hyped and excited for this match. Even though we think that difference in strength between those two teams is rather big at the moment, it will be one of the most exciting matches of the DreamLeague Season 13 group stage. First of all, Evil Geniuses are 2nd place finishers from the last ONE Esports Dota 2 World Pro Invitational in Singapore. They have been beaten by Vici Gaming in the grand finals with dominant 3-0 score. If we put that on the side, Evil Geniuses is the team to look for in 2020. Their lineup change was perfect and it gave them another depth in their gameplay and drafting. Their form will only rise through the year until The International 10. They have so many options and possibilities, and they will be one of the teams favoured to win all Dota 2 tournaments that they will play this Dota 2 season. On the other side, Natus Vincere together with their CIS brothers Virtus.pro, are looking to be the dominant force in CIS region this year. How much can they done with the new lineup on the international level, we will see. According to picklebet odds, they are in the lower third of teams favoured to win this Dota 2 Major. To be honest, with EG and Liquid in the group D, we are not sure if they can manage to take top 2 positions that lead to the upper brackets of the next playoff stage. This match prediction is very easy for us, as we think Evil Geniuses are the clear favourites here and match winners.
