LOUD vs FURIA Preview and Predictions – VCT 2023 Americas Playoffs

The LOUD vs FURIA matchup will have a lot at stake, as the winner will have a spot in Masters Tokyo this year


Being an Upper Semifinal game, the winner of this encounter will be in the top 3 positions, guaranteeing a spot in the Masters Tokyo. With LOUD being hugely favored in this series, FURIA will have to prepare to bring a big upset against fellow Brazilians. Here’s what we think on which of these squads will be in the only Masters event this year –

LOUD

LOUD have proven themselves to be the most dominant team in this event with an 8-1 record in the Regular Season and a #1 seed coming into the Playoffs. The Brazilians delivered another 2-0 in their most recent game against Leviatán, where aspas continued to prove why he is the best player at VCT Americas. With the 2022 Champions winner still in their prime, they won’t have much trouble winning this series.

LOUD vs FURIA

FURIA

Coming from their Upper Round 1 victory against Leviatán, FURIA looked dominant if you don’t count the overtime on Pearl. However, getting even a single map out of LOUD’s hand will be a lot harder, considering how powerless they looked facing their fellow Brazilians in the Regular Season. Unless we see mwzera and dgzin bring their best looks, this will likely end in a defeat for FURIA.
