FaZe vs Liquid Preview and Predictions: Intel Extreme Masters Dallas 2023

Two sides desperate to avoid a premature exit from the IEM Dallas 2023 will lock horns in the FaZe vs Liquid Intel Extreme Masters Dallas 2023 Group B Lower Bracket Semi Final

FaZe and Liquid, two sides languishing toward the exit door, will hope to stay alive to fight another day when they battle it out for a spot in the lower bracket final. The reigning Intel Grand Slam champions lost to ENCE last time around, while Liquid knocked Grayhound out of the competition. FaZe still go into the US derby as the CSGO betting favorites, but Liquid will be drawing inspiration from their IEM Katowice 2023 win against Finn “karrigan” Andersen’s troops earlier this year. 


FaZe were only one win away from ensuring an appearance in front of the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center crowd, but a 2-0 defeat to ENCE made the qualification equation more complicated. karrigan and company never assumed control of the game and succumbed to their second successive defeat against their Finnish foes.

FaZe vs Liquid


Grayhound picked Inferno, but a ruthless Liquid offense catapulted the American side to an 8-2 lead. The Aussies recovered magnificently afterward and forced the map to overtime, where the Liquid offense once again emerged as the dominant force to settle the map in Liquid’s favor. Another hard-fought battle on Mirage ensued, but once again, Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella’s men prevailed in overtime.
