Counter-Strike bookmakers have Team Vitality priced as 1.72 favourites to defeat FaZe Clan, who enter the match as 2.00 underdogs. Both teams have looked great so far in this tournament, so while it’s possible to argue that Vitality are the better team, FaZe Clan haven’t looked bad.

  • FaZe Clan are fresh off a huge 2-1 win over Team Spirit
  • Team Vitality have dropped just one game so far this tournament
  • FaZe Clan looked somewhat shaky in the Elimination Stage

Head to Head


FaZe Clan and Team Vitality last met during BLAST Premier: World Final 2023, when Vitality won in two maps.

  • Team Vitality 2-0 FaZe Clan – December 17, 2024

Team Vitality Form


Team Vitality reached the semifinals of PGL Major Copenhagen 2024 with a 4-1 record. They lost their opening series of the Elimination Stage against Eternal Fire but found momentum and defeated The MongolZ, Imperial Esports, and Complexity – to which they added a convincing 2-0 sweep of Cloud9.

Beating Cloud9 in the quarterfinals alone is a strong testament to this team’s quality, and the way Vitality did it only reaffirms that they’re ready to compete for the PGL Major Copenhagen title. Shahar “flameZ” Shushan was particularly impressive in that series, averaging a 1.59 performance rating, ahead of Mathieu “ZywOo” Herbaut, who ended the game with a 1.27 rating.

Assuming Vitality can count on more players than just ZywOo to carry the team, then they should be in an excellent spot to advance to the finals. However, like Vitality, FaZe Clan have also looked solid recently.

FaZe Clan Form


FaZe Clan had a rough start to PGL Major Copenhagen 2024. They barely made it through the Elimination Stage, having suffered losses against Eternal Fire and Heroic. However, FaZe still managed to scrape their way into the knockout stage with wins against FURIA, Imperial, and Complexity.

FaZe Clan had a very similar road to the playoffs as Vitality, as both teams lost to Eternal Fire and defeated Imperial and Complexity. Moreover, they both eliminated two strong contenders for the title.
Unlike Vitality, who cruised their way past Cloud9, FaZe Clan had to produce an extremely close three-map victory against the tournament favourites, Team Spirit, who FaZe defeated in overtime on map 3.

It wasn’t the most dominant showing, but we can’t ignore the fact that FaZe Clan defeated Spirit, who were widely considered as the team to watch this tournament.

Verdict

FaZe Clan lost to Vitality in December, and according to the Counter-Strike betting odds, they will struggle to get their revenge on Saturday. However, form-wise, there’s not a lot to separate the two teams and the same can be said when comparing their quality.

This match can easily end both ways, but one thing is for certain. It should be a close and entertaining match which should go the distance.
