Head to Head


Virtus.pro and BIG have yet to meet on Counter-Strike 2.

Virtus.pro Form


Virtus.pro they enter BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024 as one of the teams to watch. The Russian Counter-Strike squad recently broke inside the top five on the global Counter-Strike leaderboard with a semifinal run at ESL Challenger at DreamHack Winter 2023, placed second at BetBoom Dacha and won ESL Challenger at DreamHack Atlanta 2023.

Since the turn of the year, VP have played just four games in the EU RMR open qualifiers, where they beat SINNERS, SAW, and Fnatic, but lost against Natus Vincere. Prior to that, VP have done well, showing similar results – with dominant wins against weaker teams and worse results against elite-tier squads.

No changes for Virtus.pro.

BIG Form


BIG aren't expected to do well at BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024, and it's easy to see why. They enter the tournament on a three-game losing streak, with losses against BetBoom Team, Fnatic, and Nexus, having beaten just Permitta so far this year.

At the end of 2023, BIG showed some good results, winning CCT Online Finals #5 and YaLLa Compass Fall 2023, but in bigger events prior to that, BIG failed to deliver. The team also lost Josef "faveN" Baumann at the end of December to BLEED Esports, which is a huge blow for the German squad.

  • Karim "Krimbo" Moussa
  • David "prosus" Hesse
  • Elias "s1n" Stein
  • Mateusz "mantuu" Wilczewski

Verdict

BIG are not in great form and the departure of faveN will be felt. The team already struggled to perform in the EU RMR qualifiers, where they lost against teams of similar calibre as Virtus.pro, suggesting that they have little to no chance of upsetting the Russian lineup.

Virtus.pro should win without any serious problems, and it's more than fair to believe they can do it with at least seven rounds to spare. BIG, with their recent results, don't seem to be at the level to compete with Virtus.pro.
