Imperial vs The MongolZ Preview and Predictions: IEM Rio 2023

Two underdogs clash in the Lower Bracket of Group A in IEM Rio 2023 with Imperial vs The MongolZ

One wouldn’t normally expect the nations of Brazil and Mongolia to be against one another in almost any sport or even esport, but CSGO is the great equalizer of gaming, and we have teams from each of those nations going up against one another. Imperial vs The MongolZ is bound to be a thriller, with both teams well-balanced and poised to give it all. If you’re looking to indulge in some CSGO betting, here’s our in-depth preview.


The hometown favorites haven’t gotten off to the kind of start they may have hoped for, going down with little more than a whimper against Ninjas in Pyjamas. The Swedes dominated on their CT-side and were quick to close out the game 16-5 on the attack, leaving the Brazilians hopelessly stranded in the Lower Bracket.

The MongolZ 

It’s been a topsy-turvy year for the plucky Mongolian side, who have undergone squad and organizational changes all in the space of a few months. They also had a rough start to their IEM Rio campaign, where they did well on the attack on Mirage but looked lost and despondent on the defense. Now they have to get their act together to keep their tournament hopes alive.
