FURIA vs Heroic Preview and Predictions: IEM Rio 2023

FURIA and Heroic will be bidding to set up a semifinal meeting with Natus Vincere at each other’s expense when they meet in the FURIA vs Heroic IEM Rio 2023 Quarter Final matchup

FURIA’s dream run came to an end in their previous match as Cloud9 toiled through a hostile arena to snatch a 2-1 win in the Upper Bracket Final. Heroic was boosted by the return of their star rifler Jakob “jabbi” Nygaard as they condemned NIP to a 2-0 defeat. The home advantage will make FURIA the CSGO betting favorites for the tie, but Heroic will be confident of keeping their winning streak going against their Brazilian opposition. 


FURIA were flying high going into the Upper Bracket Final tie against Cloud9. They had just finished their two-year barren run against FaZe, but little did they know a Cloud9 side desperate to bounce back from their Paris Major European RMR woes will cause them more trouble. The home side took the lead on Inferno only to see the Russians fighting back with back-to-back wins on Vertigo and Ancient.

Player To Watch



The Heroic management watched on in horror as jabbi had to withdraw from the stage during TheMongolz game. The Danes soldiered on without their first-choice rifler to win the game, and were relieved to get him back in the next match. The 19-year-old ran the show as Heroic registered a comfortable 2-0 victory over NIP to qualify for the quarterfinals.
