Virtus Pro qualified from the CIS region and have already accrued enough Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) points to secure a spot at The International 9.

They are, without a shadow of a doubt, the strongest team in Group C at the DreamLeague Stockholm Major.

EHOME have performed well since Faith_bian and EGO joined the team, accumulating 900 DPC points from the Chongqing Major and climbing to eighth in the Dota Pro Circuit standings.

However, they were only able to retain 80 per cent of their points after releasing EGO in February and bringing in END to play at position one.

The bad news did not stop there, as Faith_bian left the team earlier this month.

EHOME now have XinQ (on loan from Team Serenity) at position three and have to build their squad synergy all over again.

Mineski qualified from Southeast Asia and have yet to join any event by earning DPC points in season 2018-19.

Although considered one of the strongest teams in the SEA region, they have a long way to go before they can match it with the best on the global stage.

Forward Gaming have gained only 225 DPC points this season despite playing both the Kuala Lumpur Major and the Chongqing Major.

They were disappointing in both tournaments, placing 13-16th in Chongqing and 9th-12th in KL, and have made no improvements since finalising their squad in September last year.

Group C betting predictions

Virtus Pro are the team to beat, while Mineski have a decent chance to take the second slot because EHOME’s latest squad is less than two weeks old and untested in professional play. If EHOME gel well enough, Forward Gaming will finish bottom of the group.
