Vitality vs ENCE Match Preview

CS2 odds used in this article were provided by one of the best CS2 betting sites, Thunderpick.


With only one series loss over the past three events, Vitality is undoubtedly the best CS2 team in the world right now. If they claim the title here in Katowice, they’ll have won three consecutive S-tier events, which is an astounding feat.

There’s no denying that Vitality wouldn’t have achieved nearly as much, had it not been for Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut. The Frenchman is simultaneously the team’s primary AWPer, star rifler, and the best CS2 player in the world.

Having never won IEM Katowice, Vitality players will have a chip on their shoulders to make history and claim their maiden ESL championship-level event title.

After a great year in 2023, filled with solid results and multiple playoff runs, the highly-rated ENCE roster imploded, leaving only Paweł “dycha” Dycha on the current line-up.

With not many options in front of them, ENCE decided to connect dycha with his countrymen by acquiring the core of 9INE and forming a Polish super team of sorts, with legendary Danish in-game leader Lukas “gla1ve” Rossander at the helm.

The unlikely mix seems to be working together well in Katowice, with the players having extra motivation to perform at their very best and do all they can to play in front of their home crowd in the Spodek.

Vitality vs ENCE Odds & Prediction

Thunderpick odds massively favour Vitality to best ENCE and kick off their IEM Katowice 2024 campaign with a victory. Unless, something takes over the Poles, and they play lights out, Vitality should have this game on lock.

  • Prediction: Vitality (2-0) ENCE
  • Odds: Vitality Win (-667/1.15), ENCE Win (+380/4.80)
