Cloud9 vs Vitality Preview and Predictions: IEM Rio 2023

Cloud9 vs Vitality will decide will one of the IEM Rio 2023 Grand Finalists

Vitality moved closer to hitting the $100,000 jackpot after beating BIG in the quarterfinals. The French side will take on Cloud9 in the semis. Vitality never won against the Russian outfit, but still they will be entering the fray as the CSGO betting favorites since they are enjoying a four-match winning streak, which includes wins against FaZe, OG, and BIG. Cloud9 won the Group B Upper Level Final to reach this stage, so they won’t be short of confidence as well. 


Cloud9 seem determined to make amends for their Paris Major European RMR failures at the IEM Rio 2023. They have won all three of their matches in the competition so far. In the Group B Upper Bracket Final, they locked horns with a spirited FURIA side. The Brazilians produced a valiant display on the first maps, but the Russians kept their calm to win the decisive map.

Vitality started the tournament on the wrong foot by suffering an overtime loss to OG. Since then, however, they have had to tread a very fine line and they did so exceptionally well. They have won four matches in a row to make it to the semifinals, and their extraordinary form continued when they raced to a 2-0 win over BIG in the quarterfinals.
