18 pro Dota 2 teams ready themselves for the final day of group stage in TI 10.
The group stage, especially in group A, has been erratic and unpredictable thus far. Many predictions and anticipations have been upset by surprise turnarounds. Consequently, we have an extremely tight group table with little point spread.
Only Invictus Gaming, with an impeccable 13-1 score, are guaranteed the first upper bracket slot. The other three slots are the site for fierce competition between five teams. The match-ups on the final day will be telling in that regard.

Dota 2: T1 vs Thunder Predator TI 10 predictions
Thunder Predator are the first team to be outright eliminated from TI 10. They are yet to win a single game in this tournament, being outclassed in all 7 series they have played so far.
Already being eliminated with the 18th place consolation prize, the Thunder Predator's' only motivation is to squeeze out a hail-mary series win against T1 before their exit. If they lose this final series, their 0-16 score will set the new record for the highest number of defeats in a single TI, crossing MUFC's 0-14 score in TI 3.
Meanwhile, T1 have recently turned around from an initial bad spell in the group stages. They have won 2-0 against both Virtus.pro and Team Dying yesterday, the latter carrying the sweet taste of revenge against Undying's Jonáš "SabeRLight-" Volek.
Head-to-head T1 vs Thunder Predator
They have faced each other only once before, which is in ESL One Fall 2021. T1 won the series 2-0 against Thunder Predator.
