We are going into Round 3 of the ESL One Germany 2020 group stage. Each team has played 3 out of 5 matches in the group stage. Round 3 will reveal the first two teams to qualify for the playoffs.
Cyber Legacy @ 1.33
This is the losers match. Both teams are currently pinned to the bottom of the table with 2 losses out of the 2 matches. I would say EXTREMUM has had a little bit harder schedule facing Alliance and 5men. They’ve lost both matches 0-2. On the other side Cyber Legacy faced a new Natus Vincere squad and Europe’s finest underdogs, mudgolems. Again, both matches were lost 0-2. Interestingly enough, both teams are on a 3 match winning streak in all Dota 2 competitions. Both teams have only 2 matches won out of their last 5 matches. Their only encounter was one month ago in Omega League Divine Europe Division. Cyber Legacy took that match 2-0. They are heavy favourites in this match too. Even though both teams have 2 straight losses, Cyber Legacy are favourites on paper. With Cooman and Magical as carries, they can’t lose this. They have far better and experienced players compared to EXTREMUM. Cyber Legacy win should be a safe bet here.
Team Nigma @ 1.44
Nigma again entered this tournament with a stand-in player on the position 5. Kuroky is out of the roster, and their coach rmN- is taking his place. Can this be enough for them to make some significant result in this season’s Dota Pit? They surely have the quality to end up in the playoffs, and after that everything is open. Nigma had a very easy opening in this league. Well, at least they should have, but they lost their 1st match. Straight 0-2 vs Yellow Submarine, a surprising loss for them and all of us viewers. They’ve managed to come back with a win over weak Tempo Esports. However, now they need to face very decent mudgolems, a team who won 2nd place in the recent BTS Pro Series Europe. They surely showed that they could surprise the strongest EU teams. They were crushed vs Team Liquid, but managed to come back vs strong 2-0 win vs Cyber Legacy. However, this match may go to all 3 maps, but I believe Nigma are favourites here and they should be able to do it. Odds on Nigma ML win are not that great, but still worth trying for. With good picks for Miracle and GH, they could make wonders. 2-0 is not excluded here. Anything can happen, literally.
