Apeks vs Virtus.pro Match Preview


Apeks make their second LAN Grand Final appearance in a row, after falling short against FURIA in Elisa Masters Espoo, which took place earlier this month.

The international roster impressed at the start of 2023 with their historic run to the BLAST Paris Major semi-finals, but failed to replicate that success for the remainder of CS:GO lifespan. With CS2 coming into the picture, the team’s performances began to slowly improve and they’ve started enjoying some success.

A big reason for Apeks’ recent results is the sensational form of Tim “nawwk” Jonasson, who’s unrivalled impact earned him the MVP medal at Elisa Masters Espoo.

If his team wants to win the title in Atlanta, he’ll have to replicate some of those performances against VP in the Grand Final.


Virtus.pro’s consistency continues to be unmatched, as they make yet another Grand Final appearance in CS2.

The Russian team deals very well with lesser opposition and very rarely falls victim to an upset loss. The Rio Major Champions are yet to lose a map in this tournament, with The Mongolz coming the closest in their semi-final bout, where they tallied up 11 rounds on Overpass.

Lifting the trophy in Atlanta would be a great way to finish of the year for Virtus.pro. Even with all their recent success, their 2023 could be considered a let-down, so ending the year on a win would be a promising sign for their 2024 comeback to tier-one tournaments.
