OG vs Vitality Preview and Predictions: IEM Rio 2023

After their thrilling meeting earlier in the tournament, we have OG vs Vitality once again in the Lower Bracket Final of Group B of IEM Rio 2023

As the Group Stage of IEM Rio comes to a close, we have one more team to eliminate before the Playoffs, and it’ll be decided through OG vs Vitality. OG have been in fiery form at this event since their slump in the last few months, while Vitality themselves look unstoppable despite an initial hiccup against OG. If you’re into CSGO betting and this match sounds like a good chance for a wager or two for you, here’s our in-depth preview.


It’s hard for any team to reorient itself after losing its IGL, and OG finally seems to have come to terms with its new stewardship. In their last game, they massacred Fnatic, making the Swedish side look like a third-tier team as they stomped them 16-6 on Mirage and 16-5 on Vertigo. OG are at the top of their game, and it’ll take quite the effort for any team to beat this group of intrepid youngsters.

The French-and-Danish majority squad has had its problems with choking over the last few months — if not longer. In their last match, however, they showed no such side-effects as they plowed through a dangerous FaZe Clan 2-0, beating the recent Intel Grand SLam winners 19-16 on Anubis and 16-9 on Overpass to assert their dominance.
