Team Secret To Face Team Nigma Or OG In WePlay Omega League Final

Later today Team Secret will face off against Team Nigma or OG in the grand final of the WePlay! Omega League Europe Immortal Division Dota 2 tournament. 

The final is due to kick off at 1 pm ET and 10 am PT and will be broadcast on the WePlay! Esports Twitch channel. The match will be a best of five, and regardless of which team makes it to the final, you can be sure that it will be a close match and could go all the way to game five. 

Team Secret will head into the final as the heavy favourites, as they are undefeated in the entire Omega League competition and have only dropped two maps. Team Secret has been the best Dota team in Europe by some way this season, and many would say they are currently the best in the world. If The International 10 had taken place as normal they would no doubt have been a favourite to win it. 

Before the final is played Team Nigma and OG will face off in the lower bracket final, where the winner will advance to face Team Secret in the grand final and the loser will be eliminated in third place and take home $60,000. 

When the two teams met in the upper bracket OG won 2-0, however, since then Nigma has been on a good run, taking convincing 2-0 wins over Team Liquid and Alliance. OG, on the other hand, lost 2-1 to Secret, so could be lacking in confidence heading into the match. 

This lower bracket final is, of course, a rematch between the two teams who competed in the final of The International 9 just over a year ago. While the rosters are slightly different now to what they were back then, the rivalry between the two teams is still fierce, which means this should be a great match. 

Whoever does advance to the final will have a tough task to take down Team Secret, but it certainly isn’t impossible. OG has taken a game of Secret already this tournament, and Nigma dominated Team Liquid, who were the only other team to take a map off Secret. 

With few major Dota 2 events on the horizon and no DPC events expected until 2021, this will be the biggest Dota 2 match we see for quite a while. WePlay! has done an excellent job filling the gap left by The International 10, and we can only hope that further tournaments are announced for the coming months to give us the Dota action that we have been missing this year.
