Spirit - Latest performance & results
Spirit has shown some good performances against A-Tier opponents in the past weeks, but continues to struggle in head-to-head duels with top teams.

Heroic vs. Spirit - Map-Veto prediction
While Heroic bans Dust2 by default, Spirit decided against Vertigo when it came to their map pool. Between Heroic and Spirit, the tip regarding the maps is on Nuke and Train. While the Danes pick Nuke practically at every possibility, Spirit has Dust2 as home pick. Overpass and Inferno would be conceivable as decision makers.
Heroic vs. Spirit - Prediction
Due to the fact that Heroic will ban Dust2 and thus Spirit's best map by default, we think the chance of a 2-0 success by the Danes is very likely. In the duel Heroic vs. Spirit we would bet the tip on a 2:0 for the Danish favorite with a stake of 5 units. Bet365 for example offers odds of 2.62.
