Paper Rex vs Evil Geniuses Preview and Predictions – Valorant Champions 2023

The Paper Rex vs Evil Geniuses matchup will decide the first grand finalist of Valorant Champions 2023


Following a brief break of 3 days, Champions 2023 is resuming with its final stage, consisting of the top four teams. All eyes are on the upper finals match, where Paper Rex will clash with Evil Geniuses. This encounter marks their first meeting since the epic Best of 5 showdown in the Masters Tokyo lower finals. Both teams have maintained a flawless record since then, so we expect a display of Valorant at its finest. That said, here is our prediction for the matchup.

Paper Rex

Paper Rex stands as the last hope for Asia in Champions 2023, shouldering the aspirations of an entire continent in the quest to claim the first-ever international trophy. While Paper Rex have consistently secured podium finishes in the past, including last year's Champions event, where they clinched second place, they've always failed to achieve ultimate victory. However, as they enter the finals against EG, the odds tilt in their favor, considering the dominance showcased by this roster with insane firepower throughout the event.

Evil Geniuses

The Evil Geniuses hype train keeps on rolling. The North Americans’ results of the last few months were more than enough to consider them one of the biggest favorites of the event. However, the way they stomped past DRX in the upper semi-finals showcased a level very few teams reached in the history of Valorant. If Boostio and Co can continue this form against PRX, it is highly probable we might see the NA squad make their second grand finals in a row.
