Leviatán vs FURIA Preview and Predictions – VCT 2023 Americas Playoffs

The Leviatán vs FURIA matchup is going to kickstart the Americas League Playoffs


Coming with 4-5 records in eight weeks of matches, both of these teams have made it to the Upper Round 1 of the Playoffs. In their last matchup, FURIA were able to bring an upset against Leviatán with the help of dgzin and Khalil. However, the Chileans are still the favored roster in this game. The winner of this encounter will be facing LOUD in the Upper Semifinal, while the defeated squad has to fight through the lowers. 

Leviatán

The Chileans are coming from two back-to-back losses in their final Regular Season games, getting dominated in both of them against LOUD and Cloud9. Therefore, Leviatán will need a much stronger look from the entire roster to stay in the Playoffs because even if they manage to win this series against FURIA, LOUD are waiting on the next step. While dgzin’s excellent form will pose a challenge for this roster, we think Leviatán will likely take a victory in this game with the help of the kiNgg and nzr duo.

Leviatán vs FURIA

FURIA

Even with dgzin showing some of his best performance in FURIA’s last three games, the Brazilians failed to win them, barely making it through the Regular Season with a 4-5 record. While they had previously won against Leviatán in the Regular Season, we don’t see them doing the same here, unless the rest of the squad also turns up alongside dgzin.
