The MongolZ vs NAVI Preview and Predictions: Intel Extreme Masters Rio 2023

The MongolZ vs NAVI is one of the IEM Rio 2023 Group A upper bracket quarter-finals

The MongolZ and NAVI will look to secure an IEM Rio 2023 Upper Bracket Semifinal spot when they meet in the Upper Bracket Quarterfinals. NAVI are the obvious CSGO betting favorites in this tie. The MongolZ will be taking on the Ukrainian giants for the first time in their history. While their recent victories have not come against teams of similar standing, their run of three wins in four matches is still an inspiring achievement for the Mongolian side.

The MongolZ 

The MongolZ grabbed an Asia-Pacific spot in the Paris Major 2023 Challengers Stage with a second-placed finish in the Paris Major 2023 Asia-Pacific RMR. They beat Chinese side Rare Atom 2-0 in the Consolidation Final. Garidmagnai “bLitz” Byambasuren’s men raced to a 16-11 win on Inferno before picking up a victory by the same margin on Mirage.
