Natus Vincere vs FaZe Preview and Predictions: Paris Major 2023 European RMR A

It’s the RMR encounter everyone’s been waiting for in Natus Vincere vs FaZe Clan in the Paris Major 2023 European RMR A 

There’s not much we can say about these teams that hasn’t been said already. Natus Vincere and FaZe Clan have been neck and neck for the better part of the last two years, and with FaZe having the upper hand through most of it, it’s about time NAVI struck back. With two of the world’s best teams going head to head, this match is guaranteed to be an absolute firecracker, and if you’re itching for some CSGO betting or just want to know more about these teams going into this matchup, here’s our preview.

Natus Vincere 

The Ukrainian giants suffered quite a scare in their opening game as they only just managed to edge out Into the Breach in second Overtime, but they achieved an emphatic victory in their next match against French-Saudi Arabian side Falcons, thrashing the latter 16-6 on Ancient. Up 2-0, their path forward into the Major is being guarded by the deadly FaZe, who recently knocked them out of the Semifinal of ESL Pro League Season 17. Whether NAVI can conquer their demons and FaZe at the same time remains to be seen.

Player To Watch



Having sealed the elusive Intel Grand Slam at last, it seems that FaZe have nothing left to prove, and only continued dominance to be had. Being able to end the CSGO era with a win would be a cherry on top of the illustrious careers of each player on the team, and consecutive wins against OG and Apeks has given them the chance to be one step away from such a result.
