Predict for the DreamHack Masters Spring 2021 quarterfinals with the participation of G2 Esports and Astralis. The Danes are the outsider, the French are the clear favorites.
Astralis is the first major tournament for Danes without a device, but together with a young and energetic Bubzkji. The team managed to defeat Extra Salt at Nuke, and also defeated Complexity at Inferno and Vertigo. You might have thought that Astralis' Nuke and Inferno were at a good level, but Heroic showed something different, defeating them 16:6 on each map. I would like to note the good game Magisk. Astralis at this tournament showed us their preparation - Inferno, but banned: Mirage, Train, Overpass.
Nuke (1 win - 1 loss)
Vertigo (1 win - 0 losses)
Inferno (1 win - 1 loss)
Vertigo (opponent's pick): defeated Complexity with a score of 16:10 (9 in defense, 7 in attack)
Nuke (opponent's pick): lost to Heroic with a score of 6:16 (6 in defense, 0 in attack)
Inferno (own pick): defeated Complexity with a score of 22:19 (17 in attack, 5 in defense
Inferno (own pick): lost to Heroic with a score of 6:16 (3 in attack, 3 in defense)
Nuke (decider): defeated Extra Salt with a score of 16:8 (10 in defense, 6 in attack)
Mirage (3 times in recent matches)
Train (2 times)
Overpass (2 times)
G2 Esports - started the tournament with a victory over Team Spirit, but then lost to other guys from the CIS - Gambit Esports. After that, they pulled themselves together and beat mousesports against Virtus.pro. They have well-trained Mirage and Vertigo in their arsenal, but Overpass doesn't play.

Inferno (1 win - 0 lose)
Vertigo (2 wins - 0 losses)

Dust 2 (0 wins - 1 loss)

Match prediction: G2 Esports vs Astralis in quarterfinals DreamHack Masters Spring 2021
The impression was that Astralis came only with Nuke and Inferno at this tournament, but the game with Heroic showed a lot of Astralis' weaknesses.
G2 Esports continue to rate with their map Mirage, and their preparation for this tournament is Vertigo.
Bookmakers give odds of 1.65 for G2 Esports and 2.29 for Astralis. The match is purely due to the map pool, obviously for G2, dupreeh even minimally fails to replace the device and therefore we advise you to believe in G2.
