In the next match of the 1st round of the IEM Winter 2021 group stage, G2 Esports and TyLoo will meet. Will the "dragons" be able to resist?

G2 Esports

The third team of the world ranking performed well at the PGL Major Stockholm 2021, where it took second place, losing in the final to Natus Vincere (0-2). After that, NiKo and the company decided to take a break, refusing to participate in tournaments before the start of IEM Winter 2021. It will be interesting to see what form the guys from G2 Esports are in, and whether they will be able to further improve the quality of the game by making a breakthrough at the Major. 

TyLoo

The Chinese team TyLoo also performed at the Major, but could not achieve anything serious, having stopped performing after the first stage, during which it suffered three defeats with one victory. After their performance at PGL Major Stockholm 2021, the Dragons played four matches, winning three of them. First, they took 3-4 places at the William Hill Cup 2021, winning in the first game and losing in the second, and then they won two victories in the closed qualifiers Funspark ULTI 2021 Europe Regional Series 4. 

Forecast

TyLoo is strong in its region, where it is the main favorite in every tournament, but in the confrontation with European teams it looks modest, often losing big. For sure, the same thing will happen this time, since the third team in the world is in the competition.
