Vitality vs G2 Preview and Predictions: Paris Major 2023 Legends Stage

Two of the top CSGO teams meet again after the European RMR on the Vitality vs G2 matchup

These two rosters met each other many times in 2022, and considering their total head-to-head stats, this is one of the most evenly-matched games you can hope for in this Major. G2 and Vitality’s most recent encounter was in the European RMR, where G2’s loss landed them in the Challengers Stage. Vitality, on the hand, got their Legends Stage spot after one more 2-0 victory in their RMR.

There’s no doubt that this matchup will be one of the most encounters to start the Legends Stage. And if you are into CSGO betting, you wouldn’t want to miss our predictions of this high-anticipated Bo1.


The IEM Rio 2023 champions secured their Legends Stage spot with an incredible run in the European RMR B, where they defeated dominant forces like BIG and Astralis. Vitality’s 2-0 victory against Heroic allowed them to win the recent Rio event, and with the current best player at the Major in their lineup, this French squad is going to take this victory.

Vitality vs G2


G2’s journey to the Legends Stage was quick, winning three matches consecutively against MongolZ, Complexity and Apeks. However, you may want to focus on their most recent loss, which was against none other than Vitality in the RMRs. That game went 2-0 in Vitality’s favor, and G2 lost their chance to be a Legends squad. Nonetheless, with members like huNter- and m0NESY looking exceptional in recent times, they have the ability to win this Bo1.
