Vitality vs Cloud9 Preview and Predictions: IEM Cologne 2023

The third Vitality vs Cloud9 encounter of this year is about to take place at the Playoffs of IEM Cologne 2023


These two teams have already encountered each other twice this year, and Vitality have proven to be the stronger name in all of those matchups. While Cloud9 are coming into this Bo3 from an arduous journey in the lower bracket, Vitality enjoyed an easier time in Group B, only losing to G2 in the Upper Bracket Final. Before this match takes place, let’s prepare by predicting if you also enjoy CSGO betting

Vitality

The French squad’s near-flawless Group Stage run was interrupted by G2, a match where ZywOo and teammates’ underperformance on Vertigo and Mirage cost them a direct qualification to the Semifinals. Nonetheless, they are still the favorites of this encounter as the team is getting ready to defeat Cloud9 for a third time this year.

Vitality vs Cloud9 Preview and Predictions: IEM Cologne 2023

Cloud9

After losing to Fnatic on their first IEM Cologne match, Cloud9 found themselves in the Lower Bracket, and they were able to successfully get to the Playoffs by eliminating teams like Monte and GamerLegion. These recent few victories are showing a sign of hope to HObbit’s roster as they are about to face off against the Paris Major winner and undoubtedly the best team this year.
