On 13 February 2018 the meeting of the teams Effect and Spirit as a part of the closed qualifier for Dota Asia Championship 2018 in the CIS starts. At the moment both rosters are at the Grand Final of the elimination rounds and at the meeting the winner of the clot will be known.
During the last 3 months the teams met six times and each of them managed to win 3 times. The bookmakers’ coefficients prove the fact that Team Spirit is a questionable favorite of the match – “Dragon’s” victory is 1.7 and if Effect wins you can double your bet.
Team Spirit got to the Grand Final by the winners’ bracket and on their way to the final the guys managed to win over Natus Vincere and Team Empire and at the quarterfinal they left no chance to their today’s opponent from Effect. We shouldn’t forget that “Dragons” replaces Igor «iLTW» Filatov by Yaroslav «Pikachu» Vasilenko while they took part in the tournament.
In their turn, Effect started their way to the final from the lower bracket as at the first round they had give a way to Team Spirit 2:0 and were separated with Natus Vincere, Vega Squadron, Kazakhstan and Gambit eSports. Also we should mention that Maden and the team played better at 2 recent qualifiers and at one of them they won a slot for ESL One Katowice 2018.
We think that Effect will won today thanks to their results at the qualifiers and yesterday’s overmasterful victory over Natus Vincere at the minor final of losers, but the teams are absolutely equal and the results of the meeting will be influenced by some trifles as the players' mood, state of health and so on.
