B8 vs Cloud9 Preview and Predictions: BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 European RMR Decider

The B8 vs Cloud9 match takes place on the Stage 1 of European RMR Decider to determine which team gets to have a spot in the upcoming Major

This is a place where neither of these teams wanted to come, but they have to go through it anyway to fight for the last spot of the Major. Cloud9 is the favorite going into this matchup, but the Russian squad has been facing a few bumps along the road. B8, on the other hand, isn’t looking too good either, but they have to make the best out of this last opportunity. If you are interested in CSGO betting, here are our quick two cents before the series starts.


While the Ukrainians started RMR A with two consecutive wins, they lost their pace and couldn’t win a single Bo3 in the event. However, thanks to those two Bo1 wins, B8 has another chance.
