G2 vs Nouns Preview and Predictions: Intel Extreme Masters Dallas 2023

The G2 vs Nouns game will be the first-ever encounter of the top-10 roster against the North American underdog

The second group stage match will be a first-ever matchup, where the European legends G2 are highly favored to win the Bo1. While m0NESY and his squad have participated in many S-tier events such as this one, it will be the first occasion for Nouns to prove their worth. If you’re into CSGO betting and excited to know more about this match, you will enjoy our predictions and team previews here.


The Germans are arriving at this event from Paris Major, where they failed to get past the Legends Stage after a 3-0 run in the Challengers. m0NESY has had inconsistency in G2’s recent games, with huNter- and NiKo taking the top fragger spots. Nonetheless, even if the Russian fails to pick up his pace, we see G2 easily winning this match.

G2 vs Nouns


Nouns nearly qualified for the Paris Major as their final Americas RMR game ended in a close 2-1 defeat against Liquid. The North Americans have returned to participating in low-tier events since then, and the IEM Dallas will be the first-ever chance at an S-tier tournament for this roster. Even though they are coming from a 4-2 record in the ESL Challenger League, standing a chance against G2 will prove nearly impossible.
