Cloud9 vs Sprout Preview and Predictions: Brazy Party

The Cloud9 vs Sprout matchup takes place as the opening encounter of Group D

This is likely going to be another loss to Sprout’s name as they come into this match with a stand-in without confirming an IGL. After letting AZR go, Sprout haven’t found a suitable alternative yet, which will likely be the reason for Sprout’s future losses at this event. On the other hand, Cloud9 are looking excellent after a recent good streak at IEM Rio 2023, making them a strong favorite in this Bo3. 

If you love to bet on CSGO and are interested in the outcome of this match, have a look at our predictions.


The IEM Rio 2023 run was excellent for Cloud9 as they reached the Semi-final with a 3-0 record. However, the Russian roster was stopped in its tracks by Vitality. Before this Rio event, Cloud9 fought hard in the European RMRs but unfortunately couldn’t confirm their Major spot at the Decider event. Nonetheless, their IEM Rio performance means that this matchup will be an easy victory for the squad.

Cloud9 vs Sprout


The recent roster changes haven’t done any wonders for the team yet, as they faced another upset last week against Sangal in the ESL Challenger League. With a disappointing performance at the RMR A, the German roster lost their chance to compete in the upcoming Paris Major. Considering all these factors, Sprout will have to pull a big upset to stand a chance against Cloud9, especially with a stand-in.
