Match Prediction: Team Secret - Into the Breach | Dota 2

After the confrontation between OG and Entity, we move on to the match between Team Secret and Into The Breach. Paradoxically, this particular match will become the central match of the day.

Secret and Into The Breach will play for life. Both clubs have almost no chance of success in the top division of Western Europe.

It is noteworthy that of this pair, Into The Breach has more opportunities. The team will come to this match with statistics 1-4 in the standings and 6th place.

Secret is in a critical position. Puppey and company are 0-5 overall, in last place and last chance to secure a place in the top division.

Let's figure out if the newcomers of the elite league from Into The Breach will be able to send the "mastodons" to a kind of retirement in the second division, or Secret will try to jump above their heads at the end of the league and hope to save the slot for the next DPC round.

Team Secret uniform

Let's start the analysis of the match with the analysis of Team Secret form. Surprisingly, they are here in the status of a favorite.

Bookies believe in the success of Team Secret, although they do it with apprehension. On the victory of the "secret" in this match they give 1.7.

The only reason why you can call Secret the favorite in this match is the length of service and past merits. If we take into account the performance exclusively within the DPC, then the Puppey team looks disgusting.

Team Secret roster

No matter how much we talk about Secret, I am so surprised at the scale of one person. Nisha's departure literally killed the team.

Team Secret players

  • crystallis
  • BOOM
  • Resolut1on
  • Zayac
  • Puppey

Okay, BOOM is no match for Nisha, but did the Pole really have such an all-encompassing impact. Where did the double Reso + Zayac go, who played well last season, where is the same captain Puppey with good picks, and not Mirana-mi in third position?

Team Secret Performance

Secret on the wave of reshuffles last season were on the 31st line of the DPC table. The team took 5th place three times in the regional league and did not play in the major tournaments.

Secret got a break after joining Zayac and Resolut1on. The team had a good Riyadh Master and ESL One Malaysia, after which they took 2nd place in the Western European qualifiers for The International 2022.

At The International 2022, Team Secret revived and it paid off. The team reached the final of the upper bracket of the playoffs, after which they flew down, but not for long.

Having beaten Liquid in the small final with a score of 2-1, the team made it to the grand final. The last match of the last season ended sadly for Secret: 0-3 from Tundra Esports.

The start of the DPC was quite a dramatic event for the Puppey team. The team played against Team Liquid with the Pole Nisha in the roster. As a result of the first series, Secret were declassed and lost with a score of 0-2.

The second series did not have a similar storyline, but had an identical result. Secret were crushed by OG, which was especially noticeable on the second map.

In the third series, nothing has changed. Secret tried to fix the situation somehow, but nothing came of it: GG took out Secret with a score of 2-0.

Then there were Entity and the first reason to be proud of Team Secret. They were able to pick up the map, but lost the series 1-2.

Team Secret Heroes

Their most common spawns were Tusk (7 matches, 85% wins), Witch Doctor (5 matches, 80; wins), Monkey King (5 matches, 60% wins), Pangolier (4 matches, 50% wins), Death Prophet (4 matches, 50% win rate).

Form Into The Breach

We continue the review of the fight with the analysis of the form of Into The Breach. They are predicted to be an outsider in this fight.

The bookmaker, however, is very cautious about marking ITB as the second number. For the victory, the team gives a coefficient in the region of two.

Such a figure, as for me, does not reflect reality. Perhaps it's just scary to admit that even ITB can be above Secret?

Line-up Into The Breach

Compared to Secret of the DPC 2023: WEU Winter Tour sample, ITB look like a reference, and this despite the fact that there are essentially no big names in the team.

Players Into The Breach

  • Otaker
  • Supream^
  • xibbe
  • Immersion
  • Kidaro

There are constant “underdogs” like Xibbe, Supream and others. Now they have a real chance to fit into the first division.

ITB Performance

Into The Breach can be described as a "working" team. They sweated all last season to get into the first division.

We started last season from 6th place in the DPC WEU 2021/2022 Tour 1: Division II, which almost put an end to the team's performance in the DPC ecosystem. Then there were performances at local events, including the TOP-17 at D2CL Season 7.

In April, DPC WE 2021/2022 Tour 2: Division II took place, where ITB took 5th place, after which they signed the current roster, in almost identical form, with the exception of the fourth position player.

In July, the team played at DPC WEU 2021/2022 Tour 3: Division II. The updated roster immediately flew into the TOP-2, which allowed them to be here at DPC 2023.

Before the start of the rating league, ITB played qualifiers for ESL and The International, as well as a couple of local tournaments (TOP-2 1x Series, TOP-3 Last-Last Chance). Qualifiers for the main championship of the year ended for ITB in fourth place.

In the first game of DPC 2023, they played against Entity. The series ended with a score of 0-2, but ITB struggled on the second map.

In the second game of the season, against Team Secret, Into The Breach didn't just struggle. They took out Nigma Galaxy with a score of 2-0, and they, in turn, took the card from Tundra Esports.

Then the Tundra became ITB's rivals. In an absolutely negative matchup, the team managed to win one map against the champions of The International, but they did not reach the full-fledged series.

The fourth opponent of ITB was Team Liquid. “Liquid” uncompromising in the winter round, and therefore there was no talk of ITB winning at least on one map.

After were OG. ITB got smart with the drafts in that series, and their Natures Prophet did not show the proper impact, because of which the team flooded with a score of 0-2.

Heroes Into The Breach

Into The Breach's favorite character in patch 7.32 is the meta Crystal Maiden. The character has peaked 26 times and has a win rate of around 61%.

In addition to CM, Tiny (19 matches, 52% wins), Enigma (13 matches, 53% wins), Pangolier (10 games, 60% wins), Pudge (9 matches, 77% wins),

History of personal confrontations

Previously, the teams did not play each other in official meetings. This fight will be the debut face-to-face confrontation between the teams.

Match outcome

A very hot action should be waiting for us. When else will Supream be able to put an end to Puppey's participation in the first division?

I believe in the victory of Into The Breach for Secret this season - quiet horror.

Outcome: victory Into The Breach.

All bookmakers have agreed that Team Secret is the favorite. This can be noticed because odds on them are 1.567. This number in the favor of Into the Breach amounts 4.756. Respectively, the last ones are the underdogs of the upcoming match.
