Liquid vs Fluxo Preview and Predictions: Paris Major 2023 Challengers Stage

Teams will fight for their lives as the Liquid vs Fluxo matchup will eliminate one of the squads from the Paris Major

Liquid and Fluxo are going to fight each other for the first time, and their icebreaker match has a lot at stake. The losing squad from this Best of 3 will be eliminated from the Major with a 0-3 record. On the other hand, the winner will have to gather more victories to ensure a spot in the Legends Stage. The North Americans are the favorites of this matchup, but will they avoid elimination? 

Here are our predictions of this game, and if you love eSports and bet on CSGO, you wouldn’t want to miss these previews!


The North Americans are following their trend of disappointing their huge fanbase, and now they are close to getting eliminated from the Major. To give Liquid some credit, both of their losses were very close, especially their last Bo1 against FORZE, where they scored seven rounds in both T and CT sides. Considering these factors, Liquid are likely going to get their first win from this Best of 3. Even then, the question of whether they can score some more wins to reach the Legends Stage will be haunting Liquid fans.

Player To Watch



While their last defeat against Monte wasn’t as embarrassing as the 16-2 loss facing paiN, Fluxo still lacked synergy and continued their T-side struggle. This outcome of losing to stronger squads was not surprising, but we hoped to see some pushback from the Brazilian squad. With all these in mind, winning against Liquid will require a much stronger T-side execution and a lot of aggression from their star players.
