The International 2018 already showed us plenty of outstanding matches that kept us hooked till the very end. There were several big surprises too, one of them being PSG.LGD's victory over Virtus.pro. We have to brag but simply had to say – we predicted it! PSG.LGD looked like the better team before the match with great group stage campaign. Perhaps they didn't win that many games, but they didn't lose and that's equally (at least for me) important as well. The story is somewhat similar for OG too. They overcame the odds and slid past both VGJ.Storm and Evil Geniuses. Needless to say, a very interesting match is ahead of us. 2 highly skilled teams will face off against each other in a match that's going to decide the opponent of Evil Geniuses in Lower Bracket Round 4. Dota 2 TI8 PSG.LGD vs OG predictions can be found down below. But, before that, let's check out the official stats of both competing teams to cater to all Dota 2 betting fans reading this!

PSG vs TL – Key Match Recap
PSG.LGD Maybe was, obviously, the crucial member of the team to get the much-needed win against Team Liquid. The entire matchup was a true beauty but there was only one winner from the very start. It's safe to say Maybe made sure that becomes reality with 26 kills and 24 assists at the end of the day. What really surprised me is the effort everyone from PSG put in from the first second of the matchup. They were careful with last hitting, lane balancing and allowing fy to roam freely. TL players, on the other hand, were overly static, couldn't react in time to PSG's ganks which resulted in a tough loss. One thing is certain, PSG looks tough and I actually consider them the main favorites to win it all. Who knows, we might even see PSG vs TL in the grand finals again! It would be a proper match for all fans, no doubt about it!
OG vs EG – Key Match Recap
If there is one thing that we can conclude after watching this match, it's that all 5 of OG players are true warriors. Game 1 and Game 2 were OK… Both very fiery with twists near the end. Especially the second match. I'm sure many of you will agree with me when I say that OG could've finished it all with 2-0 if they had just played a bit smarter. But they did not. They ended up disheartened and went into the third round where their early and mid game weren't impressive. They weren't impressive at all… But then, everything turned around in one team fight in which they killed all 5 EG players. It didn't take too long after that to push through the lanes and secure the W against all odds. Unsurprisingly, EG players looked in agony.. but not all is lost – they're now switching to Lower Bracket where they'll face off against the winner of OpTic Gaming vs Virtus.pro.
