Matchförutsägelse: Cloud9 - Paper Rex | VALORANT

Cloud9 and Paper Rex will meet in the first round of VALORANT Champions Tour 2023: LOCK//IN São Paulo. Perhaps the North American team is one of those who can claim victory in the championship.

As for Paper Rex, the main advantage of the team is the lack of lineup changes. But for me personally, the Singapore team is somewhere in the middle between the two levels, and definitely with an advantage in favor of TIER-2.

Therefore, here I would look at the logical victory of Cloud9, since with the advent of yay, the team's potential has increased significantly.

Form Cloud9

The second team in the North American ranking seriously updated its lineup in the off-season by signing one of the strongest snipers on the world stage - yay.

At the same time, Cloud9 managed to make their debut at Red Bull Home Ground #3, where they showed a good game, if we forget the defeat from FOKUS in the group and the failure in the grand final.

Nevertheless, the North American team has enough potential to go through the grid as far as possible.

Latest Cloud9 results:

  • Defeat from FOKUS with a score of 1:2.
  • Victory over KRÜ Esports with a score of 2:0.
  • Victory over Team Vitality with a score of 2:0.
  • Victory over KRÜ Esports with a score of 2:0.
  • Defeated by 100 Thieves with a score of 0:3.

Paper Rex Shape

The Singaporean team had a good last season, winning four regional championships. In addition, in the course of last year, Paper Rex reached the finals of VCT 2022: Stage 2 Masters - Copenhagen, in which they imposed the fight on FunPlus Phoenix.

However, at VALORANT Champions 2022, the team clearly did not have a good time, and it did not even make it to the playoffs. Well, in the off-season, the team first won the Valorant India Invitational, but also played mediocrely at the recent Riot Games ONE PRO INVITATIONAL

Latest Paper Rex results:

  • Victory over BOOM Esports with a score of 13:1.
  • Victory over Team Secret with a score of 2:1.
  • Victory over Team Heretics with a score of 3:1.
  • Defeat from ZETA DIVISION with a score of 5:13.
  • Victory over DetonatioN FocusMe with a score of 13:8.

Prediction for the match Cloud9 — Paper Rex

I don't think Paper Rex has the speed to close the North Americans. It is clear that all the teams have not yet revealed their capabilities, but in essence Cloud9 seems a little more interesting, especially considering the game at the Red Bull Home Ground. Yes, and the Singaporean team rarely jumps above its head, if we are talking about the international level. Therefore, in this case, I would recommend betting on the victory of the Cloud9 team.

Enligt ledande bookmakers förutsägelser är laget Cloud9 favoriten med genomsnittliga odds 1.37 för tillfället. Bookmakers anser att Paper Rex är matchens outsider med odds på en seger på summan av cirka 4.879.
