Imperial vs G2 Preview and Predictions: BLAST Premier Spring Final 2023

After pulling off the biggest upset of the tournament, Imperial will look to ride on the momentum and win the Imperial vs G2 BLAST Premier


Imperial caused a major upset by defeating Vitality in their first match, earning them a spot in the upper bracket final against G2. Despite the transfer talks surrounding their captain Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo, the Brazilian team remained focused and secured a decisive 2-0 victory against the formidable French team. G2 also delivered an impressive performance by sweeping aside another strong opponent, Cloud9. FalleN and company remain the CSGO betting underdogs, but G2 won't make the mistake of underestimating them. 

Imperial

Imperial made the most out of their Overpass pick against Vitality as they crushed them 16-3. Marcelo “⁠chelo⁠” Cespedes recorded 10 kills on the map to spearhead his side to victory. Vinicius “⁠VINI⁠” Figueiredo took over the baton on Vertigo and put his team ahead. Vitality mounted a late comeback, but they eventually fell short by a margin of two rounds.
