Team Vitality vs OG Preview and Predictions: IEM Rio 2023

The stage is set for the second Vitaly vs OG match of the year as the European sides prepare to renew their rivalry in the IEM Rio 2023 Upper Bracket Quarterfinals 

Vitality and OG will hope to get their respective IEM Rio 2023 campaign to a flying start when the two teams lock horns in the Group B Upper Bracket Quarterfinals.  The two sides are almost indistinguishable in terms of form and pedigree, so choosing a CSGO betting favorite for this tie will be no easy task. 

Team Vitality 

Vitality are on a three-match winning run going into this tie. Their wins came against BIG, G2, and Monte, which earned them a place in the Paris Major 2023 Challengers Stage. The French outfit were more ruthless in their last two games as they recorded straight 2-0 wins over G2 and Monte.

Like their opponents, OG are also on a three-match winning run. They beat SAW by 2-1 before cruising to 2-0 victories against Falcons and 1WIN. OG, however, will not look back fondly on their last meeting with Vitality, where they received a 2-0 hammering.
