Virtus.Pro(0-1) vs. mousesports(1-1)
The ESL Pro League opener features Virtus.Pro looking to turn around an 0-2 loss to FaZe Clan against world no. 4 mousesports. mouz come into the match 1-1, with a loss against OG and a tight 2-1 win over FaZe off the backs of ropz and frozen. The question for mouz will be if ChrisJ can show up; in their win he posted a plus-3 and solid 1.00 rating, but in their loss a minus-27 and 0.75 rating. If the Dutch AWPer shows up to play they should prove to have far too much talent for a floundering Virtus.Pro, who, outside of Qikert and Jame, have been underwhelming, to say the least, in recent months. In the end, unless Jame pulls out an absolute master class, mouz should have far too much quality and take this series comfortably. With Jame only the third-most expensive VP player while potentially being one of the best in the world, he could be incredible value and a worthwhile inclusion.
