paiN vs FURIA Preview and Predictions: Paris Major 2023 American RMR

We separate the Challenger from the Legend in this paiN vs FURIA matchup in the Paris Major American RMR

It’s been a couple of brilliant individual runs from arguably the two current best teams in the Americas, paiN Gaming and FURIA Esports. Both teams have been on fire throughout the qualifiers, not losing a single game over the duration of their run into the tiebreakers. However, only one can go into the tournament with a direct Legend Stage berth, while the other has to work through the Challengers Stage. If you’re looking to dabble in some CSGO betting for this match, here’s our in-depth preview.


paiN has been riding high for a while, and their recent domination of Fluxo — in which they beat their fellow countrymen 16-1 and 16-8 to all but waltz into the Tiebreakers — has been emblematic of their recent form. Usually FURIA would be the favorites against them, but at this point, that would be a bold statement to make.

Player to Watch



Brazil’s best for a long time, FURIA seem to finally have usurped Liquid’s crown as the best of the Americas to become the dominant force in the west. They lost their first game against Liquid 19-16 on Nuke, but came back to win Inferno by a narrow margin before flattening their opponents 16-4 on Mirage. paiN might be a tougher opponent, but FURIA seems ready.
