ENCE vs FaZe Preview and Predictions: BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 Challengers Stage

Teams at the ENCE vs FaZe matchup are getting ready for their first Best of 3 of the Major

After winning their first two games, FaZe and ENCE have found themselves facing each other in Round 3 High Matches, meaning one of them will make it to the Legends Stage from this encounter. Even though the losing team will still have more chances to move forward, both rosters will be trying hard to finish the Challengers Stage early and get ready to fight against the Legends teams. If you’re a fan of eSports and CSGO betting, check out this preview, along with our predictions of this Bo3.


Both wins from this Finnish roster were done in a very convincing manner, as they fought two highly capable teams and still dominated them on Bo1s. While dycha was the MVP for ENCE’s first Challengers Stage match, he wasn’t as active against NIP in the team's latest game. Instead, maden took control of Vertigo, putting up an excellent CT setup and winning the games against the Ninjas. As any player in the team can take the spotlight at any time, ENCE have a really good shot against FaZe.

Player To Watch



Unlike ENCE, FaZe’s last two wins were closer, as their opponents put up a good fight. And while FaZe are the favorites of this matchup, their T-side weakness so far may result in them facing an upset. So, with the Legends Stage at stake, Twistzz and his squad will be preparing to face ENCE for the first time this year!
