FNATIC vs LOUD Preview and Predictions – Valorant Champions 2023

The playoffs bracket of Valorant Champions 2023 continues with the FNATIC vs LOUD matchup


In Valorant, there's no other current rivalry quite as intense as the one between FNATIC and LOUD. Both teams have dominated their respective regional leagues to qualify for the international events. While FNATIC has enjoyed more success on the global stage this season, LOUD will approach their upcoming showdown with a boost in confidence, thanks to their earlier victory over FNATIC in the playoff's opening round.

Now, the question is whether the European giants, FNATIC, will continue their quest for a third title this season or if LOUD will keep their dream of defending the championship alive. Let's delve into the predictions:

FNATIC

The loss against LOUD in the upper-quarter finals did little to sway the confidence of Boaster’s team. FNATIC are well on course for a lower bracket run.  First, they made quick work of FUT Esports, and despite a shaky beginning in the next matchup against DRX, the Masters Tokyo Champions made a remarkable comeback to clinch a 2-1 series victory. As FNATIC prepares for a potential rematch with LOUD, if they address their previous mistakes and make certain adjustments, we might see a repeat of the LOCK//IN Grand Finals.

FNATIC vs LOUD

LOUD

LOUD have been as clutch as it gets throughout the event. On two occasions, they found themselves teetering on the brink of elimination. First, it was against NAVI in the group stage, and then the nail-biter against EDward Gaming in their last encounter. Both times, the Brazilians managed to squeeze out a win despite being a map down. As LOUD set their sights on another showdown with FNATIC, maintaining this level of poise and mental fortitude will be essential if they wish to beat Boastet and Co again
