Group A at this year’s DreamLeague Major features two teams from Europe (Team Liquid and Team Secret), one from North America (J.Storm) and one from China (Keen Gaming).

Liquid currently rank among the top handful of teams in Dota 2 esports and recently bested Evil Geniuses in the finals at MDL Macau for a USD $135,000 payday.

They have accumulated 450 Dota Pro Circuit (DPC) points so far this season, which puts them 10th in the race to qualify for The International.

Liquid were forced to play without Miracle at the Chongqing Major, which is a big reason why they are well behind Team Secret and Virtus Pro in the DPC standings.

Secret boast one of the best and most diverse esports squads in the world, with all five players hailing from different countries: Nisha from Poland, Midone from Malaysia, Zai from Sweden, Yapzor from Jordan and Puppey from Estonia.

They have been regularly in the mix since The International 8 in August last year and have achieved big results at ESL One Hamburg 2018 (winner), the Kuala Lumpur Major (runner-up) and the Chongqing Major (winner).

J.Storm have improved since Fear joined them in December 2018 as the experienced player adds plenty of quality both in the draft and during the game.

On the downside, Fear has spammed Grimstroke to the extent that J.Storm’s opponents know how to deal with the hero and often ban him.

Keen Gaming have developed good chemistry in recent times, with Old Chicken, 一 and Eleven steering the team to victory over Invictus Gaming in the finals of the JJB Spring Cup.

Group A betting predictions

Both European squads should place at the top end of Group A, meaning Keen Gaming and J.Storm will have to settle for the lower brackets of the playoffs unless they unveil some hidden strategy in Stockholm.
