FURIA vs Fnatic Preview and Predictions: Intel Extreme Masters Rio 2023

Two sides sitting next to each other in the global rankings will go head-to-head in the FURIA vs Fnatic IEM Rio 2023 Upper Bracket Quarterfinal matchup


FURIA had enjoyed a remarkable campaign in the IEM Rio last year, but their dreams of lifting the title in front of a raucous local crowd did not materialize in the end. They would look to improve upon their 3rd-4th finish in the upcoming tournament, and the first obstacle they face en route is Fnatic. Both teams are in excellent form going into this tie, but FURIA will be the CSGO betting favorites because of their home advantage. 

FURIA 

FURIA are on a four match winning streak at the moment. In their previous match, which was in the American RMRs for the Paris Major 2023, FURIA came from behind to win against paiN. With a Paris Major 2023 spot in the bag, FURIA can now focus on chasing IEM glory on home soil.

Fnatic 

Fnatic recovered from their 1-2 defeat to OG with three successive wins. They got the better of B8 in the Paris Major 2023 European RMRs to secure a Legends Stage spot. Now, they would hope to bank on their recent success and enjoy a remarkable run at the IEM Rio 2023. They face a daunting first challenge though, as they will have to play against FURIA in the hostile Jeunesse Arena atmosphere.
