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

The North Americans will be facing a ruthless contender in the 9INE vs Liquid matchup

With a clean 3-0 run in the RMRs, 9INE not only confirmed their Legends Stage spot and became a team to be afraid of. Mainly because this Swedish roster mostly took part in B-tier competitions before qualifying for the Major. On the other hand, Liquid have a lot of responsibility on their shoulder as the only North American team in the Major. And even though they are ranked much higher than 9INE, winning this Bo1 is going to be a tough challenge! If you love eSports and CSGO betting, check out our predictions for this exciting game. 


You will be incorrect to think of 9INE as a weak opponent in this Major. Just by having a look at their RMR performance and noticing their victories against G2, BIG and Vitality, you can tell this Swedish roster is poised to dominate the Legends Stage. While 9INE haven’t competed against Liquid before, they have fought much harder opponents and can overpower the North Americans.

9INE vs Liquid


After eliminating Complexity in the Legends Stage, Liquid stand alone as the only North American representative in this Major, and there’s no doubt they will have to keep the hopes alive of millions of fans. nitr0 and the boys barely made it to this stage of the Major with a 3-2 record, and they have been looking sloppy for a top-10 roster. Even though they have a higher ranking than 9INE, we don’t see the North American Titans emerge victorious in this Bo1.
