Cloud9 vs Monte Preview and Predictions: Paris Major 2023 European RMR B

Round 2 of the European RMR B begins with the interesting clash of Cloud9 vs Monte

It’s not everyday that Cloud9 and Monte go at each other’s throats. In fact, this is going to be the very first match between the two teams, and that very fact describes the gap between them quite well. Monte are a second-tier team struggling to make it big, while Cloud9 members made that journey a long time ago as Gambit Youngsters, and are now one of the strongest teams in the world. It’s anyone’s game in a Best of 1 Regional Major Rankings match, though, and if you’re planning to do some CSGO betting, our preview should help.


The CIS side have been in terrific form lately, winning the BetBoom Playlist Urbanistic, BLAST Premier Spring European Showdown, and even making it to the Grand Final of ESL Pro League Season 17. As for this RMR, they have already taken down forZe in dominant fashion, so Monte shouldn’t be too difficult.

Player To Watch



The Ukrainian side might not be well-known to fans of the game who don’t go too far down on the CSGO pro scene iceberg, but they have been around for a while. Monte have just trashed EPL 17 semifinalist ENCE 16-11 on Ancient after a powerful CT-side, and it has suddenly dawned on many that the team isn’t one to be taken lightly.
