FaZe Clan and Team Liquid will meet in the Group A lower bracket final at IEM Katowice 2023. The winner of this match will make it to the playoffs, where they will start their way from the quarter-final stage, while the losing team will go to prepare for the next tournaments.
Perhaps, in terms of preparation, this fight is one of the simplest on the last day of the group stage. Still, now the North American team is completely useless, while FaZe Clan shows a strong enough game to create problems for themselves.
In addition, even in their peak form, Team Liquid did not beat the European team, so now it is very hard to believe in such a scenario of the development of events.
Therefore, here I would trust the logic and did not invent reasons for the "liquid". In general, FaZe Clan has quite an interesting game that deserves to get into the playoffs of the competition.
FaZe Clan form
The third team in the world ranking showed itself very well at the recent BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023, where, despite problems with the roster, they got three confident victories.
As for the start of IEM Katowice 2023, here the European team outplayed Team Spirit, as they say, in class without any problems. However, FaZe Clan did not linger in the upper bracket, as they lost to G2 further.
However, the team managed to contain the blow, managing to eliminate the IHC Mongols from the tournament, who created enough sensation. In general, FaZe Clan is good enough now, so I see no reason to lose.
Latest FaZe Clan results:
- Victory over OG with a score of 2:1.
- Victory over OG with a score of 2:0.
- Victory over Team Spirit with a score of 2:0.
- Lost to G2 with a score of 0:2.
- Victory over IHC with a score of 2:0.
Best FaZe Clan maps:
- Inferno - 88% of wins.
- Ancient - 75% of wins.
- Mirage - 67% of wins.
Let's not forget that the European team continues to refuse the Vertigo card.
Form Team Liquid
The fourth team of the world ranking, on the contrary, failed in the group stage of BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023, where they scored only one victory over Complexity.
At the same time, in the Play-In stage, the North American team played even weaker, because already in the first round they lost to BIG and were eliminated from the championship, not getting into the spring finals directly.
As for the performance at the group stage of IEM Katowice 2023, here Team Liquid was able to beat IHC and Team Spirit, but at the same time showed nothing against NAVI. And given such differences, I would not believe in "liquid".
Latest Team Liquid results:
- Lost to OG with a score of 1:2.
- Defeated by BIG with a score of 0:2.
- Victory over IHC with a score of 2:0.
- Lost to Natus Vincere with a score of 0:2.
- Victory over Team Spirit with a score of 2:1.
The best maps of Team Liquid:
- Mirage - 78% of wins.
- Anubis - 57% of wins.
- Inferno - 50% win rate.
In turn, the North American team usually refuses the Nuke card, but tries to take risks in places.

Prediction for FaZe Clan vs Team Liquid
Let's do without difficult conclusions, since the North American team did not show a game worthy of the playoffs earlier. In turn, RobbaN's wards are quite good, and if they manage to close the lucky Mongols, then they are completely obliged to cope with the "liquid" ones. Plus, Team Liquid has never won head-to-head matches, which is another drawback. Therefore, in this case, I would recommend betting on the victory of the FaZe Clan team.
