Match Prediction: Team Spirit - Nemiga Gaming | Dota 2

Welcome to EGamersWorld!

We're pleased to see another round-up of what's happening on DPC 2023: EEU Division Tour 3 where we've prepared a betting tip on the Team Spirit vs Nemiga Gaming match. Obviously, the match is of huge importance ahead of the draw for direct tickets to The International 2023.

On a personal level, Spirit are unlikely to qualify for The International this year, but in reality they retain a chance of qualifying for the main tournament of the year, provided they play well in the third round of the DPC. And for that to happen they need to outplay Nemiga Gaming, so that's the chain of events.

Let's try to figure out if Spirit will be able to get at least partially closer to their goal (first to qualify for the IO Bali Major 2023, and then The International 2023), win in this match and solidify their place at the top of the standings in DPC 2023: EEU Division 1 Tour 3.

Let's get started.

Team Spirit uniforms

Let's start the parsing of the match by analyzing Team Spirit's playing form. In this match they will play as favourites.

The bookmakers are clearly on the side of the Dragons. The odds on the club's victory are around 1.1, which already hints at the imminent "death" of Nemiga in this match.

Prior to Long's third-round exit, that wasn't hard to agree. After all, Spirit are the title team with a pretty good performance for the year.

In the first round of DPC 2023: EEU Division 1 Spirit finished 2nd. The Dragons were then prevented from winning by BB Team, who finished the tournament in first place 7-0. After a home league appearance, Team Spirit attended The Lima Major 2023 where they finished in the top 8.

Later, the Spirit played the second round of their home league and again finished in the top-2. Coming to The Berlin Major 2023 expected to improve the result of the previous Major, however, in the end, things only got worse: already in TOP-12.

  • Team Spirit line-up: Yatoro, Larl, Collapse, Mira, Miposhka.

Spirit look completely unassembled this season. Even in the third round the team is experiencing great difficulties, and before that they played only with the outsiders of the championship.

They are now 2-0 on the series, but 4-2 on the road. Matches against UALEIKUMNIHAO and Virtus.pro have been a real test.

The most popular Team Spirit heroes

The top picks for Team Spirit are Crystal Maiden. The character has appeared in spades six times and has an 83% win rate.

In addition to CM, Disruptor and Underlord are both valued, having been spiked 5 times each with an 80% win rate. There was also Skywrath Mage (4 matches, 100% wins), Doom (4 matches, 75% wins), PL, Viper, Slark, Riki appeared 3 times each and has 100% wins.

The Spirit problem is deep and not dependent on heroes and so on. It needs to be worked out, as you can see that the team seems to be afraid of itself, which was not the case before.

Nemiga's form

We continue with our analysis of the Nemiga Gaming's form. In this contest, they will be the underdogs of the game.

Bookmakers have already said goodbye to Nemiga's chances of winning. The odds on the Belarusian club's success are at 4.6.

Such a position is expected, because 1.1 on the favourite is very little. And there's nowhere else to get more.

As likeable as Nemiga are, they're no match for Team Spirit. Both in terms of performance and squad.

If we talk about results, Nemiga's main achievement remains their victory in the second division last round. Thanks to that, they managed to qualify for the top league, where, incidentally, they already had experience of playing.

In the first season of DPC 2023: EEU Upper Division, Nemiga did not perform at their best. They finished in last but one place with a 6-12 scoreline, which meant they were in a tussle in nearly every game.

In between DPCs, they only played in local events. Even one.

That was BB Universe: Episode 1 - Comics Zone, which was not the most successful event for the Belarussians and in which they got to the TOP-10-11 without getting out of the group stage.

  • Nemiga Gaming line-up: v1olent, Malr1ne, Vazya, Hellscream, so bad .

No matter how it was with the results and play, Nemiga Gaming are feeling pretty good in the third round of the DPC. As for a team coming out of the second division so exactly.

The club currently has a 2-2 score, with Nemiga losing to Hydra and 9Pandas, but beating UALEIKUMNIHAO with One Move.

Nemiga Gaming's most popular heroes

Over the last month, Nemiga Gaming's most chosen hero was Disruptor (6 games. 100% wins), Pangolier (5 games, 80% wins). Monkey King, Terrorblade, Clockwerk, Snapfire, Rubick and Primal Beast were each played 4 times. MK, TB, Clockwerk and Snapfire each had 100% wins, Rubick had 75, and Primal Beast won 2 matches.

With the current Spirit Nemiga look even more formidable. There is every chance of clinging to the game.

Nemiga - Spirit's history of head-to-head encounters

The last time they played each other was in the first round of the DPC. That was back then with a 2-1 win for the Spirit.

Result of the match

This encounter will be won by Spirit, but I can't believe in a completely closed series. The current season for the Dragons is so draining that it's hard to imagine them on the podium in Eastern Europe. However, you can see for yourself what the level of play and competitive teams are like in this region, so you shouldn't be surprised by the outright raw teams in the top.

Bottom line: +1.5 on Nemiga Gaming.

Now, the majority of bookmaker companies believe in Team Spirit victory. Odds on them are equal to 1.317. According to bookmakers data, Nemiga Gaming are the outsider and odds on their victory amounts 4.55.
