Today begins the playoffs stage of the European Immortal division of OMEGA League, one of the biggest Dota 2 events of the summer. The stage will be played between September 2nd – 6th, featuring 12 teams competing in a double-elimination bracket with best-of-three regular series and best-of-five grand finals.
Today we will witness two series within the first round of the lower bracket. The first one is scheduled for 4:00 PM UK Time and will feature Virtus.pro and Team Liquid. According to GG.Bet odds, both team have a similar chance to win – earlier this summer they faced each other only once at BEYOND EPIC, with VP defeating Liquid 2-0.
The second series of the day between Vikin.gg and Alliance is scheduled to start on 7:00 PM. GG.Bet’s analytics believe that Alliance are clear favorites of the series – although the last match between the teams ended in Viking’s favour, Alliance have a much more impressive track record with second places at ESL One Birmingham 2020 and OGA Dota PIT Season 2.
Tomorrow, on August 3rd, the event will feature the first round of the upper bracket. The series are as follows: Team Nigma vs OG (4:00 PM), Team Secret vs Evil Geniuses (7:00 PM).
