What is more, our experts prepared the CS:GO Match Analysis for the Semifinals of IEM! - IEM Katowice Quater-Finals Stage Match 2 - fnatic vs Virtus.pro

The teams:

Fnatic went through the group stages exactly as had been expected - managed to drop 1 bo1 game to Luminosity but apart from that they dominated their group. They are one of the teams, if not THE team that's expected by many people to win the whole tournament, whose performance in the group stage and the condition they have shown in the event so far prove that they are more than capable of achieving that. We have to point out, however, that Fnatic in group stages and Fnatic in Finals are two different teams so take any losses you see in groups with a grain of salt. After all they have won every LAN tournament they attended the last several months.

Virtus.pro on the other hand almost got eliminated in the group stage and, to be honest, the performance they have shown in the ESL matches hinted that they may very well NOT make it past groups in Katowice. However with a little bit of luck and poor performance by EnvyUs (and heartbreaking losses of FaZe against both VP and Envy) we have the Polish team in Quater-Finals against one of the favorites.

The match itself:

In my humble opinion, I don't see VP taking out Fnatic, not today, not considering both teams' recent performance. They may be able to take a map, but taking two would come of as a surprise to many. The real world odds of this match should rotate between 70-30 and 75-25 in favour of Fnatic. We have to take under consideration the fact that VP are playing on home turf and the crowd will go wild for them. And considering what an amazing crowd we have seen so far in Katowice, they will definitely boost VP's performance. The question is however - will that be enough?

The verdict:

Right now Fnatic are better in pretty much every way. They have better performance of late, better current condition, they are better individually and at teamplay, better map pool, and honestly they seem even more motivated to win. I believe that with the help of the crowd Virtus.Pro can take 1 map but it's going to be an uphil battle. If I had to guess the final score, it should be 2-1 or 2-0 Fnatic. Everything else will be a huge surprise for me.
