Cloud9 vs Grayhound Preview and Predictions: Intel Extreme Masters Dallas 2023

Cloud9 will look to extend their winning run to six matches when they take on Grayhound in the Cloud9 vs Grayhound Intel Extreme Masters Dallas 2023 Group B Upper Bracket Quarterfinal tie

Cloud9 were one of the most notable absentees in the Paris Major. The Russians have been on a redemption arc since. They made it to the IEM Rio 2023 Semifinals and won the Brazy Party title. Vladislav “nafany” Gorshkov will set their sights higher at IEM Dallas 2023 and the first team that come their way are Grayhound. Cloud9 are the undisputed  CSGO betting favorites, but the Aussies are very much capable of punching above their weight. The only meeting between the two sides up until now ended in a Grayhound victory. 


Cloud9 crashed out of the Paris Major qualification race after losing the European RMR Decider against FaZe Clan. The ELEAGUE Major Boston 2018 champions then came agonizingly close to the IEM Rio 2023 title, but a semifinal loss to eventual champions Team Vitality deprived them of glory. They lifted the Brazy Party trophy afterward, but winning the IEM Dallas 2023 could prove to be more effective in alleviating their Paris Major woes.

Cloud9 vs Grayhound


Grayhound could not make it out of the Paris Major Challengers Stage, but the Australians would still take pride in making their third Major appearance. They topped the Paris Major Asia-Pacific RMR and made it to the ESL Challenger Melbourne 2023 semifinals before making the trip across the Indian Ocean to play in the last-ever CSGO Major.
