Week 4 of Dota Pro Circuit 2021 SEA Upper Division opens up with a Vice vs Fnatic match. Both teams aren’t perfect in the group stage. While the Philippians are expected to only fight for the top-6, Fnatic aims for group leader but can’t hold on so far.
Fnatic is currently in 2nd place in the group with a 2-1 record. The team has defeated T1 and Execration in two opening weeks but has lost to BOOM 1:2 in a spectacular match. Now, DJ and Co are far away from 1st-placed Neon Esports and have to win every next match to hope for winning the group. However, the team has only won 5/10 latest matches.
Vice Esports Dota 2 roster was announced only in July 2020. Since that time, the team mostly took part in tier-3 tourneys but managed to qualify for DPC 2021: S1 - Southeast Asia Upper Div. Here, Vice lost the opening matches to 496 Gaming 2:0 and TNC 0:2. In week 3, Vice faced the group outsider, Execration, and managed to secure a victory in a tough battle with a score of 1:2. In the 10 latest matches, Vice has won 4 times.
All things considered, this is a match of teams from two different universes. Vice may only dream for the achievements that were reached by Fnatic. DJ and Co should get an easy win and continue the pursuit of Neon. My pick is Fnatic Map Advantage -1.5 with BUFF.bet odds 1.39
