Cloud9 vs paiN Preview and Predictions: Brazy Party 2023

The Cloud9 vs paiN match will be the first-ever encounter between these squads in Counter-Strike

While Cloud9 had smooth sailing all the way to the Quarterfinals of this event, it wasn’t the same for paiN as they lost their initial match coming to Brazy Party. This is the first time these two popular names in Counter-Strike will compete against each other, and the series is highly favored towards the Russians. However, you would be foolish not to consider paiN a strong contender, given their recent performance in Americas RMR. If you are interested to know what is likely to happen in this game and love to bet on CSGO, here are our predictions.


The Russian squad won both of their Brazy Party with 2-1 scores, and we have seen sh1ro and Ax1Le consistently putting up good forms. With this pacing, they can continue their win streak and reach the Semifinals.

Player To Watch



The Brazilians didn’t give up after their initial loss against Into The Breach as they continued to win their next two games and even brought an upset against BIG to reach the Quarterfinals of Brazy Party. However, they will have to bring another upset to win against Cloud9 on their first-ever encounter.
