Team Spirit: Off to a solid start
Team Spirit are off to a flying start after their win at The International 10. After such a resounding victory, you would expect the squad to relax and not be 100% focused in their first tournaments. However, the Dragons continued to show strong play. At the OGA Dota PIT Season 5, the team made it to the final, where they lost to Tundra Esports, who are now showing a very powerful game. It's a great result. The team is even better in Dota Pro Circuit 2021/22. Team Spirit has managed to play three matches, all with solid wins. The Dragons have not lost a single map in this tournament, and almost all of the victories were won in 30 minutes. Yatoro is incredibly good, and the rest of the team is playing very cool. I don't think that one of the main outsiders of the group stage will be able to oppose the champions of The International 10.
AS Monaco Gambit: So far so bad
AS Monaco Gambit have put together a pretty good roster under their banners in terms of names. It seemed that these guys would be able to fight for the top 4, but in reality, things are not so rosy. AS Monaco Gambit have made it through four Dota Pro Circuit 2021/22 group stage matches, winning just one against one of the weaker teams in the first division. The team has only managed to win one map in all other matches, which looks more like a fluke. The team's play looks weak, and given the level of their upcoming opponent, a win for AS Monaco Gambit does not look credible at all. The only map the boys won was thanks to Alberkaaa.
Expert Betting Tips
Team Spirit are the clear favorites in the encounter. The team has not lost a single map in the tournament and looks very powerful. The bookmakers offer 2.81 for the first map to last under 32.30 minutes, which looks like a good option.
