OG vs ENCE Preview and Predictions: BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 Challengers Stage

Round 1 matches of the Challengers Stage will conclude with the OG vs ENCE game


It's interesting to note that these European teams had similar runs in separate RMRs. They both started 0-2 in the first Bo1s but managed to bounce back with a 3-0 record in the next Bo3s. So, both ENCE and OG fought hard to be in the Challengers Stage, and this is going to be their second-ever encounter against each other. If you bet on CSGO and want to predict what happens in this game, here’s what we think – 

OG

While the Danes had a tough start in the European RMR A with losses against FaZe and GamerLegion, they still made it to this stage by winning their next three Bo3s. After the RMRs, OG participated in IEM Rio 2023 and Brazy Party and grabbed a few wins in both events against names like Fnatic, Vitality and SAW. flameZ and degster have been crucial to OG's recent success, and their performance will likely be critical in this upcoming match.

ENCE

The Finnish players had a similar story in their European RMR, starting with two Bo1 losses and then proceeding to win three Bo3s. In their last match of the RMR, they beat Cloud9 by a 2-0 score, which led the Russians to lose their spot at this Major. Brazy Party didn’t have a good storyline written for ENCE, as they finished the event with a 1-2 record. While they are the favorites in this Bo1, OG are going to be hard to win against.
