FURIA vs Cloud9 Preview and Predictions: IEM Rio 2023

The Group B Upper Bracket Final will feature the exciting matchup of Furia vs Cloud9 

Both of these squads have already gained their spots for the Playoffs. However, this match will determine which one of these teams will go directly to the Semifinals. While Cloud9 is coming into this series being the favorite name, Furia is looking scary with their six-match win streak. Therefore, this is anyone’s game, and if you are into CSGO betting, here is our short preview of this matchup.


FURIA brought an upset against FaZe on their last Bo3, where the Brazilians dominated and didn’t allow a single map to go to their opponent’s name. They also had an excellent performance throughout the Americas RMR, cementing a spot in the Legends Stage of the upcoming Major. So, even though FURIA is the underdog squad going against Cloud9, we think they will continue their win streak in the Bo3.
