BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 Champions Stage: Teams To Win
Heroic vs FaZe Clan: Heroic to Win
Heroic and FaZe will reconvene less than a week after their Challengers Stage battle. The Danes made light work of their American rivals in that match. We expect a more competitive encounter between the two this time around, but the spoils should again go to the reigning HLTV global ranking leaders.
GamerLegion vs Monte: Monte to Win
GamerLegion were on the brink of elimination after losing their first two Paris Major games. They turned around their campaign remarkably to reach the last eight, but this is where we believe their journey ends. Monte have proved that their excellent RMR form was no fluke as they keep on upsetting the big boys in Paris. The Ukrainians should go one step further in the competition, at GamerLegion’s expense.
Team Liquid vs Apeks: Liquid to Win
Liquid had been in a rough patch of form before the tournament, but the Dutch giants have been enjoying somewhat of a resurgence lately. They have won six of their last seven matches, and we believe they have enough firepower in their arsenal to send Apeks packing for home.
Into The Breach vs Vitality: Vitality to Win
Into The Breach is another surprise story the Paris Major has seen. The British side demolished Fnatic in their last match to enter the Champions Stage, but an in-form Vitality, buoyed by a strong home support, should be too much for the inexperienced side to handle.
BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 Semi Finals: Teams To Win
Heroic vs Monte: Heroic to Win
All stories, unfortunately, don’t have a fairy tale ending. Heroic vs Monte is a matchup, that we believe will yield the most predictable outcome; a Heroic win. The Danes are more used to handling such big-match environments, which should make them favorites for the tie.
Vitality vs Liquid: Liquid to Win
Vitality will be the undisputed favorites, but we believe Liquid will continue their winning streak. Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella’s men should capitalize on their renewed confidence and knock out the home side from the competition.
BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 Grand Final: The Champion
Heroic vs Liquid: Heroic to Win
Heroic have lost two S-tier finals in recent times, but we predict that they will make amends for their IEM Rio and IEM Katowice Grand Final losses with a redeeming victory against Liquid. The Dutch outfit are somewhat in a redemption arc themselves, but they could agonizingly miss out on the opportunity to lay hands on their first S-tier silverware in four years.
