Astralis vs FaZe Clan Predictions


Astralis and FaZe Clan will meet on Tuesday, April 9, in a best-of-three series in the second round of Intel Extreme Masters Chengdu 2024. It’ll mark their first meeting on Couter-Strike 2 and according to esports betting odds, FaZe Clan should win easily.

Counter-Strike bookmakers have FaZe Clan priced as 1.40 favourites to defeat Astralis, which, considering their recent success at PGL Major Copenhagen 2024, sounds right. Astralis, while a strong team haven’t shown much recently, but this series gives them a perfect chance to prove the doubters wrong.

  • FaZe Clan made the finals of PGL Major Copenhagen last month
  • Astralis have not won a Counter-Strike tournament since mid-2023
  • FaZe (#1) are higher rated than Astralis (#25)

Head to Head


Astralis and FaZe Clan have yet to meet on Counter-Strike 2.

Astralis Form


Astralis have not managed to accomplish much this year. Not only have the Danes failed to qualify for the PGL Major Copenhagen 2024 with a fourth-sixth place finish in the European RMR Decider, but Astralis also performed poorly at Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2024 (21st-24th), and they didn’t show much at BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024 (fifth-eighth) in January either.

Before IEM Chengdu 2024, Astralis have won just two of six games played, and they’ve not played an official match since February 23. However, despite all the issues, Astralis kicked off IEM Chengdu 2024 in style and crushed Steel Helmet 13-2.

That result means very little. Steel Helmet are one of the weakest teams attending the tournament, and while winning 13-2 is no small feat, that success likely won’t translate against a much superior team in FaZe Clan.

FaZe Clan Form


FaZe Clan are one of the best-performing Counter-Strike esports teams of the year. They won BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024 in January, then made the finals of IEM Katowice 2024, placed top-five at the European RMR A, and played a very competitive three-map series in the finals of PGL Major Copenhagen 2024.

FaZe lost the grand final, but this doesn’t change the fact that they’ve placed no worse than second across the last five S-Tier tournaments. That includes two runner-up finishes at BLAST Premier: Fall Final 2023 and BLAST Premier: World Final 2023.

Verdict

FaZe Clan are priced as favourites for this match and for a very good reason. Astralis haven’t looked even remotely good over the last month, and even this this team has the talent to perform at the top level, we’ve not seen that kind of Astralis for a while now.

FaZe Clan, on the other side, are one of the most consistent teams in the world, and their past results prove it. Even though FaZe Clan have lost and not looked amazing in some of their most recent outings, it’s very difficult to imagine them losing to FaZe Clan or give up too much.
