9INE vs FaZe Preview and Predictions: BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 Legends Stage

The 9INE vs FaZe is an elimination Bo3 where one of the squads will have their last game in this Major

On the one hand, we have a legendary Major-winning roster that continuously takes the champions trophy for large S-tier events in Counter-Strike. On the other hand, we have the Polish squad 9INE, who are attending their first Major and have not won any big titles yet. Who will be the first team to get eliminated between these two? If you are highly excited about this game and also love CSGO betting, our predictions should give you a heads-up. 


Even with Goofy showing a much better look compared to their first game, 9INE struggled on the T side again, leading to a 13-16 loss against GamerLegion. This turn of events wasn’t expected from the Polish squad considering their incredible 3-0 run in the RMRs, where 9INE defeated names like G2 and Vitality. However, we think 9INE can bounce back from these two losses and craft a great story of kicking FaZe out of the Major.

9INE vs FaZe


Before the RMRs, you would’ve expected FaZe to make it directly to the Legends Stage and be dominant in this Major. That hasn’t been the case for this legendary squad at all! After a decent (not perfect) 3-1 run in the Challengers Stage, FaZe had to go against Heroic, one of the strongest names in the world right now, in the Legends Stage and had a disappointing 0-8 CT side. After this loss, FaZe couldn’t bounce back against their next opponent, Into The Breach, where rain had a humiliating 9-22 K/D. With so many problems showing up in their plans and individual talents, we don’t see FaZe going past Round 3.
