Giants Gaming vs Team Liquid Preview and Predictions – VCT 2023 EMEA League

The Giants Gaming vs Team Liquid match starts the Week 5 of VCT EMEA 2023


Both of these teams are coming from a 3-2 record in this tournament as they sit comfortably at the top 5 spots of the standings. While Team Liquid are slightly more favored in this matchup than their opponent, it’s going to be a close Best of 3 considering Giants' winning streak so far. Check out the previews of both teams with our predictions to find out what to expect from this series.

Giants Gaming

The Spanish roster surprised us by winning a 2-0 series against FUT, showing a great defense on Icebox. Giants are looking strong as they won all last three of their games without giving a single map. Knowing their playstyle, Liquid might be tempted to ban Icebox. In that case, we think Giants will confirm a win on Lotus with Cloud playing Gekko and nukkye top fragging on Controller roles.

Giants Gaming vs Team Liquid

Team Liquid

This squad is filled with excellent star players, and their recent win against Team Heretics proves that the team is gradually finding its rhythm. We have seen nAts preferring to play Cypher, a comfort pick for him, and creating lurk opportunities for himself to confirm wins for the team. Giants must also consider stopping Jamppi and Sayf’s combined aggression from having more map control in this series.
