  • Team Vitality are one of the leading candidates to win IEM Dallas 2024
  • 9z Team have beaten Liquid and MOUZ

Head to Head


Team Vitality and 9z Team have yet to meet this season.

9z Team Form


9z Team are a lesser team from South America, who entered IEM Dallas 2024 as one of the weakest squads and one of the leading candidates to exit the tournament early. But they defied all odds and made it to the upper bracket finals of Group A, with wins against MOUZ (13-9) and Team Liquid (2-1).

Beating MOUZ, who are the current no.1 Counter-Strike esports team, alone is a huge statement. And while that victory was considered a fluke, 9z also performed well against Team Liquid, so perhaps they’re stronger than what they were portrayed to be.

Still, we have to be realistic. 9z beating MOUZ was a fluke and they were a bit lucky to make it past Liquid. So even though 9z Team have proven to be stronger than expected, they’re not one of the top contenders.

No changes for 9z Team.

Team Vitality Form


Team Vitality are ranked no.3 on the global Counter-Strike esports ladder, which is a good indication of where they stand. Even though Vitality haven’t won a tournament since BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024, they did well in some of the biggest events of the season, including PGL Major Copenhagen 2024 and ESL Pro League Season 19, where they placed top-four and second, respectively.

Having proven themselves as one of the elite few teams, Vitality were expected to do well at IEM Dallas 2024, and they’ve yet to disappoint. Even though they had a slow start, beating Monte 16-12, Vitality took care of business against G2 Esports with a convincing 2-0 sweep.

With just two defeats in the last 13 games, Vitality are in excellent form and we know how good they can be. So, seeing them priced as favourites for this match makes a lot of sense.

Verdict

9z Team have done exceptionally well over their last two series for their standards, but expecting them to defeat Vitality just isn’t realistic. They’re on a roll and have momentum on their side, but even in their win against Team Liquid, 9z showed some weaknesses, which won’t fly against a superior team such as Vitality.

Team Vitality are rightly heavy favourites for this match and knowing they rarely underperform when faced with weaker teams, Vitality should be able to defeat 9z Team without any issues.
