G2 vs Oxygen Preview – Valorant Challengers Leagues NA

Oxygen needs an ace up their sleeve as they face fan favorite G2 on the second day of the Mid-Season Face Off.

The newly formed roster of G2 is ready to push back against Oxygen’s defenses on Challengers Leagues NA's Mid-Season Face Off, as they did in Split 1. While Oxygen has shown potential in their recent two wins against Turtle Troop and FaZe Clan, G2’s current form might prove troublesome for mitch’s squad. Here’s all you have to know before the match starts.

G2 completed Split 1 as the Group A champion, losing only one series against Turtle Troop. Although their round differential isn’t as great as Group B’s dominators, G2 has been showcasing strength with two former Sentinels players, ShahZaM and dapr.

With 300+ ACS in recent matches, G2’s young gun OXY is ready to deliver another blowing punch with his Jett and Raze plays.

We didn’t expect Oxygen to be on top of FaZe Clan in Group A, but they put their heart out in the recent match against Turtle Troop to rightfully gain that position! While they are considered underdogs in this upcoming match, Oxygen’s recent record of wins can allow them just the right amount of confidence to step into the ring against G2.

If G2 brings up the pace, there’s no doubt that OXY will show his mechanical skills and continue on his existing track. By no means it’ll be easy as pwny will try to seize this crown on the other side.
