This match-up starts on Tuesday, November 27, 2018 – 21:00 UTC+8

Virtus Pro and NoPangolier are just one step away from qualifying into the main tournament of The Chongqing Major and will battle it out to secure a ticket on Tuesday night.

Virtus Pro is enjoying a flawless beginning to the Chongqing Major CIS Qualifiers, taking down Se7en and Team Spirit with solid 2-0 victories in Group A, before beating Empire Hope 2-0 in the playoffs.

Virtus Pro’s draft of late has been inconsistent. They are yet to draft Lone Druid or Naga Siren so far. Although they drafted a lot of heroes with small buff in this patch, but it seems like they are still trying the meta of the patch or saving their secret strategy for now.

NoPangolier displayed an awesome performance in the MegaFon Winter Clash Closed Qualifier and finished in second place, losing to Natus Vincere in the Grand Final. From their draft of late, we can see that they rely heavily on IO pick. They either picked IO or banned IO against Team Spirit and Gambit Esports.

As Virtus Pro is also good in using IO, we should expect no IO pick in match-up.

NoPangolier also drafted Phantom Assassin a lot and it proved a success — their win rate of using Phantom Assassin in The Chongqing Major CIS Qualifier is 100%. We shall take note of this and live bet low on NoPangolier if Virtus Pro do not respect banning Phantom Assassin against them.

Ceyler, position 2 player from NoPangolier, displayed his micro-management skill on Lone Druid. Although he still might panic sometimes and misuse the savage roar from the hero. Their draft of Phantom Assassin and Lone Druid was still great because they were able to pressure enemies in the early stage of the game.

Virtus Pro vs. NoPangolier betting prediction

After analysing the draft of late and individual skills of both teams, we give Virtus Pro a 70 per cent chance of winning in this match-up.

Our suggestion is to go medium and bet on Virtus Pro at better than -625 at BetOnline.
