ENCE vs Astralis Preview and Predictions: Intel Extreme Masters Dallas 2023

Having ensured playoff stage participation, ENCE and Astralis will set sights on a semifinal spot when they square off in the ENCE vs Astralis IEM Dallas 2023 Group B Upper Bracket Final

In what will be the first of two guaranteed IEM Dallas 2023 matches for both sides, ENCE and Astralis will engage in a showdown to bag semifinal qualification. Whoever wins moves within two matches of winning the whole thing, while the losing side will get a shot at redemption in the quarterfinals. ENCE put behind their poor run of form to start the IEM Dallas on a high note, while Astralis extended their winning run to six matches to reach this stage. ENCE are the CSGO betting favorites, but Astralis can be a pretty solid pick for this tie as well. 


ENCE made it two wins in a row against FaZe as they cruised to a 2-0 win against the American powerhouse, only weeks after their Paris Major 2023 Challengers Stage victory against the same opposition. The Finnish side raced to a 16-7 win on Anubis, thanks to an incredible Alvaro “⁠SunPayus⁠” Garcia display. ENCE were on track of picking up another simple win on Overpass. FaZe quickly cut down the deficit, but Guy “NertZ” Iluz closed out the map with two quick rounds.
