Heroic and Vitality will meet as part of the Group B Grand Final at IEM Katowice 2023. The winner will advance directly to the semi-finals of the competition, while the losing team will go to the quarter-finals.
It is worth recalling that at the end of January the teams played at BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023, and then the wards of zonic got a good victory, except for the miracle from cadiaN on the Nuke map.
In general, here I expect something similar, because in the current form the Danish team cannot open up and constantly gives space to the opponents.
In turn, Vitality looks to be in a winning position for the time being, as it started the new season with a bang and continues to stay afloat. I won't say that apex and the company are ready to close the series with a dry score, but the main initiative is on their side.
The second team of the world ranking played ambiguously at the recent BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023, as they suffered two defeats from Evil Geniuses and Vitality at the group stage.
However, in the Play-In, the Danish team recovered a bit in order to get the most important victory over BIG and make it to the spring finals. And yet, it cannot be said that the team there answered all the questions, since they had obvious problems with the implementation.
As for the start at the group stage of IEM Katowice 2023, here Heroic was able to cope with Complexity and OG. Moreover, in some places the team looked frankly bad, as evidenced by the defeat at its peak from the North Americans.

- Victory over Evil Geniuses with a score of 2:1.
- Defeat from Vitality with a score of 1:2.
- Victory over BIG with a score of 2:1.
- Victory over Complexity with a score of 2:1.
- Victory over OG with a score of 2:0.
Best Heroic Maps:
- Overpass - 78% of wins.
- Vertigo - 75% of wins.

- Ancient - 50% win rate.
Let's not forget that the Danish team refuses the Anubis card.
The seventh team of the world, on the contrary, played well at the same BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023, where they got three confident victories, including over Heroic,
As for the start in the group stage of IEM Katowice 2023, here the Danish-French team continued to bend its line in order to beat Ninjas in Pajamas without any problems.
Well, on the eve of Vitality was able to crush fnatic, even though the match itself turned out to be extremely difficult. In general, we can say that the wards of zonic are good enough to lose and be left without a semi-final.
Vitality's latest results:
- Victory over Astralis with a score of 2:0.
- Victory over Evil Geniuses with a score of 2:0.

Prediction for the match Heroic — Vitality
So far, the Danish team cannot find their game completely, and the victory over OG is not a special indicator. In turn, Vitality has already managed to prove in January that at least now it is more interesting than the Danes at a distance of three maps.
In any case, the stakes are quite high, so we are in for a tight fight. And yet, I tend to choose in favor of the Danish-French team, which is a little brighter in this segment.
Therefore, in this case, I would recommend betting on the victory of the Vitality team.
Heroic är listade som matchens favoriter hos majoriteten av bookmakers och oddsen på dem är lika med 1.69. Vitality är i sin tur matchens outsiders. Oddsen på deras seger är ungefär 5.728.
