Astralis vs SAW Preview and Predictions: Brazy Party 2023

Astralis vs SAW will be the Brazy Party 2023 Group C Winner’s Match

Astralis were on the back foot ahead of their first match at Brazy Party 20023. They had been struggling for form in recent weeks, but they went off to a flying start with an effortless 2-0 win against GamerLegion. SAW won their second successive match after rebounding from a four-match losing streak as the Portuguese outfit overcame an opening map deficit to beat ENCE. Anyone willing to bet on CSGO can find this matchup intriguing as both teams will enter the fray with renewed confidence.


Astralis had a forgettable Paris Major European RMR campaign earlier this month, so they were not downright favorites against GamerLegion in their Brazy Party first act. They dismantled the German side 16-8 on Ancient. GamerLegion put up a good fight in the first half of the second map on Vertigo. The scores were 8-7 halfway through, but after the break it was all Astralis as the GamersLegion could add only one more point to their tally.
