MOUZ vs FaZe Match Preview

There is no denying that MOUZ have been one of the most impressive and consistent teams in CS2. The international roster is yet to lose a group-stage match in 2024, besting heavy hitters like Spirit, G2, or Cloud9. Unfortunately, the squad often failed to capitalize on their promising starts and make deep playoff runs. That is until this event.

At IEM Chengdu, after acing the group stage like they usually do, MOUZ finally overcame their demons and defeated G2 in a thrilling showdown on the stage. The key to their victory was the form of Dorian “xertioN” Berman, who netted MOUZ several opening kills and delivered heaps of impact throughout the series.

After such an emphatic victory in front of a noisy Chinese crowd, the youngsters should feel extra motivation to go further and leave IEM Chengdu as champions. Given their historical struggles against FaZe, all members of the team need to be firing on all cylinders if they are to make the upset a reality.

The vets have done it again – an eighth consecutive Grand Final appearance. FaZe’s consistency and longevity is unrivaled in the Counter-Strike scene at the moment. Even when they struggle in the group stage, the international squad always manages to fight through adversity and get themselves to the playoffs.

This time it wasn’t much different. A devastating loss to Astralis in the upper semi-final meant they had to battle through the lower bracket, which they did with relative ease. In the playoffs, FaZe outlasted Liquid in a banger quarter-final, before exacting revenge on Astralis and handing them their first defeat of the tournament.

All four of FaZe’s firepower quarter are performing to their desirable level, with Helvijs “broky” Saukants leading the way in terms of stats. His AWPing presence on the server will be detrimental to FaZe’s chances in the IEM Chengdu 2024 Grand Final.

MOUZ vs FaZe Odds & Prediction

According to GG.Bet Esports, FaZe are favorites to defeat MOUZ and collect their fourth CS2 trophy. Those odds aren’t a surprise, since FaZe have beaten MOUZ the last six times they’ve met, with the majority of those games being rather uncompetitive.

It’s difficult to see MOUZ finally breaking through and beating FaZe, given their recent struggles in playoff matches against lesser opponents. FaZe are known to elevate their performance on the stage when the pressure is at its highest. However, if MOUZ does pull through and lift the IEM trophy after besting FaZe, it could become a major turning point in the young squad’s Counter-Strike 2 journey.
