FaZe vs G2 Match Preview

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

FaZe

Although FaZe managed to reach the playoffs without having to battle through the lower bracket, their performances have looked rather shaky. The international squad struggled to put away Eternal Fire in the arena qualification match, before getting trounced by Spirit in Group A’s Upper Final.

The only FaZe player, that played their best in the group stage was their newest recruit David “frozen” Cernansky. The Slovakian rifler took no time to adjust to his new environment and is playing lights out at this tournament.

Thankfully for FaZe, now they get to play in the arena, where they usually elevate their game. Time will tell if they have the level required to go far in Katowice.

G2The defending champions didn't have an easy path to the playoffs. After suffering a devastating loss to the hometown heroes of ENCE, G2 were relegated to the lower bracket, where they had no other choice, but to run the gauntlet.

Thanks to the individual prowess of Ilya "m0NESY" Osipov and Nikola "NiKo" Kovac, G2 managed to fight through the opposition, despite lacklustre performances from the other members of the team.

G2 chances of claiming the IEM Katowice trophy for the second year running largely depend on m0NESY's and NiKo's support cast raising their game. The duo can't single-handedly win games against the best CS2 teams in the world.
