Giants Gaming vs FUT Esports Preview and Predictions – VCT 2023 EMEA Playoffs

VCT 2023 EMEA Playoffs kick off with the Giants Gaming vs FUT Esports matchup


The eagerly-awaited playoffs bracket of the VCT EMEA is finally upon us. The opening day features two of the most crowd-favorite teams, Giants Gaming and FUT Esports. Both squads are on equal footing in most aspects of the game, as seen from their results in the league stage. The Giants, however, will approach the encounter with a heightened sense of confidence, fueled by their win over the Turkish squad in the regular season.

Giants Gaming

Giants Gaming had a roller-coaster journey in the league stage. The European powerhouse was required to win the last two matches on demand to qualify for the playoffs. Ultimately, Rhyme and Co finished fourth in the standings, with five wins and four losses. Amidst this tumultuous journey, the biggest takeaway from the league stage would be nukkye’s awe-inspiring performance throughout the grueling eight-week period.
