Only three more days until Chinese DPL-CDA Professional league group stage ends. The top 8 teams that are moving on to playoffs are known. Now, teams are only fighting for the seeds for the playoffs. Really important thing, if they want to skip playing some top teams. Let’s take a look at Friday's matches.
Vici Gaming @ 1.43
Vici Gaming is one of the best teams in the world, being ranked 2nd in the Dota Pro Circuit. One of their biggest strengths is their roster and in particular, their carry player. Eurus is probably one of the best carry / mid laners in the world and thanks to him, Vici Gaming is a formidable competitor. In this tournament, the Chinese team is leading the pack with 6 wins and 2 losses. Sparking Arrow Gaming is not doing bad either, having 5 wins and 3 losses. But when it comes to its roster and accomplishments, SAG is light years behind VG. And since VG is displaying clear signs of excellent form and a great desire to win, I simply can’t imagine SAG beating them, especially with their 2 new players that came from RNG.
RNG @ 1.76
With Sylar as carry and Faith_bian in the offlane position, EHOME is trying its best to prove their worth and hold their own among the Chinese giants. One of them is Royal Never Give Up. In spite of having 3 wins and 5 losses at this tournament, RNG has a scary roster now with their 2 new players from SAG and some excellent past results. With 3 wins and 4 losses, EHOME is not doing much better either, and its roster is slightly worse. Another important thing to note is that RNG’s losses have been 1 – 2’s with a single exception (0 – 2 against Invictus Gaming), while EHOME’s have been 0 – 2’s with a single exception (1 – 2 against Team Sirius). Based on this data, it’s quite obvious that RNG is the clear favorite here. Odds are very good on RNG’s win.
