MOUZ and Team Vitality will meet in one of the matches of the 1st round of the IEM Winter 2021 group stage. Who will be stronger?

MOUZ

There has been talk for months that MOUZ is expecting a change in the line-up, but so far it's all rumors, since the top five remains the same. It's hard to say how long she will last in the current combination, because the results have been negative lately, and the level of the game is low. At PGL Major Stockholm 2021, the shooters from MOUZ did not easily cope with the first stage, finishing it with 3-2 statistics, and then could not overcome the second, losing in three games out of four. The DreamHack Open November 2021 did not bring anything good either, where the "mice" failed to reach the playoffs, losing in the group stage in two out of three matches. 

Team Vitality

Replacements are predicted in the composition Team Vitality, sending former Astralis players Magiska and dupreeh to it, but, like the "mice", the "bees" still retain the top five, and three days ago they were close to winning the BLAST Premier Fall Final 2021, but in the final they lost to Natus Vincere with a score of 1-2, finishing second. In general, the result is very good, especially considering that two hours before the final, ZywOo and teammates held a semifinal match with Astralis, in which they won on three cards. Perhaps, it will depend on the performance at IEM Winter 2021 whether the line-up will take place Team Vitality permutations. 

Forecast

MOUZ have not played for three weeks, but it is unlikely that their game has changed significantly during this time, since the composition has remained the same, and there are no prerequisites for progress. And here Team Vitality recently completed its participation at the BLAST Premier Fall Final 2021, taking second place. The Bees are stronger now, and they should open the group stage with a victory.
