Cloud9 vs NRG Esports Preview and Predictions – VCT 2023 Americas Playoffs

The Cloud9 vs NRG Esports is the final chance of getting a Masters and Champions spot for these squads


These two North American teams have a last shot at making it to Masters Tokyo and Champions 2023 – and it’s this match. Cloud9 and NRG’s Regular Season encounter ended with a 2-1 victory going to C9 – but this series may take a different turn. 

Cloud9

The kings of North America arrived here by eliminating Leviatán in a 2-1 series where rookie player jakee took the MVP spot by crushing the Chilean opposition. Now, they’re facing a familiar opponent who they have beaten in every encounter. Nonetheless, there is going to be a lot at stake and it’s not unlikely to see FiNESSE cook up a great strategy to counter leaf in.

Cloud9 vs NRG Esports - VCT 2023 Americas Playoffs

NRG Esports

With Victor regaining his impeccable form, NRG Esports looked hungry for the win against FURIA and didn’t allow the series to go to a third map. However, their journey isn’t over yet and Cloud9 is going to be the final boss at their chance of reaching Tokyo. We expect FiNESSE to get a Haven pick and work their magic to bring an upset against their fellow North Americans.
