Apeks vs Vitality Preview and Predictions: BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 Champions Stage

Apeks vs Vitality will decide one of the Paris Major 2023 finalists 

The Accor Arena will welcome Apeks and Vitality for the second Paris Major Champions Stage Semi Final clash. After dispatching their respective opponents in their previous matches, the teams will bid to move an inch closer to the coveted Paris Major title, which will go down in history as the final CSGO Major trophy. Vitality will be the CSGO betting favorites as they are the home side. Apeks, however, are an unknown entity to Dan “apEX” Madesclaire’s men and might upset the Accor Arena crowd to reach the Grand Final. 


Apeks reached the semifinals after getting the better of Liquid with a map to spare. The Norwegians had beaten Liquid on Ancient in the Challengers Stage and they replicated that feat with another 16-10 win. They wrapped up the game with a 16-12 win on Overpass after Damjan “⁠kyxsan⁠” Stoilkovski set them off to an incredible start.

Apeks vs Vitality


Into The Breach put on another commendable fight in their Champions Stage battle against Vitality, but the French side proved to be an indomitable force to deal with. The British outfit’s CT-side shortcomings came back to hunt them as Vitality edged them out on Vertigo and Anubis.
