Match Prediction: Nemiga Gaming - Team Spirit | Dota 2

Immediately after the duel between Virtus.pro and HellRaisers, we will have another confrontation within DPC 2023: EEU Upper Division. Spirit will play their third game, who will play against HR, who have played 3 series before.

A match sign would be very interesting before the start of the season. However, with the start of DPC 2023, it doesn't seem that way.

The level of teams, judging by the previous matches is very different. It seems that flashbacks of the 2021 season period await us here.

Team Spirit will approach this fight with a 100% win rate and the second line in the standings. The team won two out of two matches, although both opponents gave them problems, which is a little lower.

Nemiga Gaming are in the opposite part of the overall standings. The team lost all 3 matches and the defeat in the 4th one risks becoming a point of no return for Nemiga.

We are looking into whether Nemiga will be able to get a minimal start for a further comeback, or whether Team Spirit will continue their unbeaten streak.

Team Spirit Uniform

We start the analysis of the match with an analysis of the form of Team Spirit. “Dragons” in this duel will play as a favorite.

The victory of Team Spirit is only a matter of time, at least according to the bookmakers. Experts give a TS success rate of around 1.2.

Naturally, such an assessment is influenced by the legacy of Team Spirit and their former greatness. In the new season, Spirit will also fight for high places in the international arena, but there is no such confidence in their actions as it was last season.

Team Spirit roster

Probably the roughness of the TS game can be attributed to their recently updated roster. The team said goodbye to their mid-laner, and a young and eager to win performer came to replace him.

  • Yatoro
  • Larl
  • collapse
  • Mira
  • Miposhka

The departed TORONTOTOKYO is also young and also hungry for victories, but in the last months of his game at the club, fatigue was observed. It manifested itself literally in everything, and now it is not surprising that he decided to change his position to a support.

Newcomer Larl is doing well, but he is far from peak TORONTOTOKYO. However, I'm not sure that they will be needed in this match.

Team Spirit Performance

Team Spirit played within the first division of Eastern Europe. There they outperformed all their counterparts at regular intervals.

In the first round of the DPC 2021/2022 EEU - Division 1 Team Spirit took first place, to then take second place at the DPC EEU 2021/2022 Tour 2: Division 1: Playoff. In between draws, Spirit took 4th place at GAMERS GALAXY: Invitational Dubai 2022.

In the middle of the year, Spirit visited the first major of the season - ESL One Stockholm 2022. There, Team Spirit took 9-12th place, which did not quite synergize with regional tournaments.

In the third season of the DPC EEU 2021/2022 Tour 3: Division 1. The decline has already begun, but Spirit quickly returned to service: 2nd place at the Riyadh Masters 2022 and a victory at PGL Arlington Major 2022 made Spirit one of the main favorites of the upcoming The International 2022.

The tournament itself turned out to be a total disappointment for the Dragons. Last year's champions flew to the TOP-16.

Before the start of DPC 2023, Team Spirit played BB Xmas Show. At the BB Xmas Show, Team Spirit reached the grand final almost without any problems, but lost in the decisive confrontation. Lost in the fight, with a score of 2-3.

Team Spirit's first encounter at DPC 2023 was a match against NaVi. Despite the nominal and actual advantage, Spirit lost the first map without a chance, but in the end they managed to close the series with a score of 2-1.

In the second match, Team Spirit played against One Move. The duel, which was supposed to end in an absolute defeat by TS, gave the champions of The International 2021 a lot of problems: TS barely won with a score of 2-1.

Uniform Nemiga Gaming

Let's continue the analysis of the match with Nemiga Gaming uniform. They are in the status of an underdog in this fight.

The victory of Nemiga Gaming is an extremely luxurious option for the outcome of the match. According to the Bookmakers, it will happen with a coefficient around 4.

There is nothing to be surprised here. Before the start of the tournament, it seemed that Nemiga would be one of the teams that would cling to the TOP-4. Now they would have to stay in the TOP-6 so as not to crash out of the first division, where they so stubbornly got to this.

Nemiga Gaming roster

One of the most stable rosters, if not the most, showed its inconsistency in the first week. Nemiga look distracted and, unfortunately, TS is not quite the team to gather their will into a fist and start showing the level.

It's somehow sad. They looked very promising and swam strongly after the start of the competition.

Performance of Nemiga Gaming

Since the roster has been holding since May of this year, the results of the team in the context of different events are quite indicative. And they are so-so.

In the 2022 season, Nemiga played as part of the second division of the DPC EEU. In the first round, the team stopped a step away from a critical point, taking 6th place and retaining a slot in the ecosystem, but already in the next round they left the second division.

It was possible to return back almost immediately, already in a new format with an updated roster. Nemiga went through open qualifiers and continued to play within the DPC EEU - Division II with a new fuse. This paid off and after the third round, taking 2nd place, Nemiga earned a place in the first league.

Before the start of the top division of Eastern Europe, Nemiga Gaming took TOP-3 at the BetBoom Xmas Show. The competitors in the tournament were Spirit, Gaimin Gladiators and HellRaisers.

HellRaisers became Nemiga Gaming's first opponent at DPC 2023. As a result of an exhausting and complete marriage on both sides, the latter won the victory.

Darksiders followed. The hodgepodge of downed pilots managed to defeat Nemiga Gaming with a score of 0-2. You can't call it an easy game, but a clear victory was achieved.

In the third series, Nemiga played against Virtus.pro. The next game was another failure for them - 2-1 in favor of VP and 0-3 in the standings for Nemiga.

Heroes of Nemiga Gaiming

Timbersaw remains Nemiga Gaming's most beloved character. The team chose him 5 times, and the hero won all his matches.

Next come Rubick with 5 matches and 80% win rate, Silencer with 4 appearances and wins in all, Monkey King with 4 matches and 75% win rate, and Pangolier with Magnus who won 2 out of 4 maps.

Match outcome

In this match, I expect Team Spirit to win, but I'm afraid of a clean 0-2. Team Spirit has already failed with this.

Wards of Silent still did not get on their feet. The team still looks like one that needs time to build intra-team connections. I think the match with Nemiga Gaming will be a good help for this, but we are closely following what is happening, keeping in mind the factor of playing against One Move.

Outcome: victory for Team Spirit.

At the moment, the majority of bookmakers unanimously see the team Team Spirit as the favorite of the game with average odds on a victory in the sum of 1.132. Nemiga Gaming chances to prevail are evaluated with average odds 6.655 by bookmakers.
