Team Vitality vs FaZe Clan Predictions


Team Vitality and FaZe Clan will clash on Friday, May 10, in the ESL Pro League Season 19 quarterfinals. They last met in the semifinals of PGL Major Copenhagen 2024, when FaZe won, but for this match., there’s no clear line between the favourites and the underdogs.

Counter-Strike bookmakers have FaZe Clan and Team Vitality priced at the same odds for this match. This suggests it’s going to be a close series, and based on what they’ve shown, that’s fair.

  • Team Vitality won Group B
  • FaZe Clan placed third in Group A
  • FaZe Clan (#1) are higher-ranked than Team Vitality (#6)

Head to Head


FaZe Clan and Team Vitality last met during PGL Major Copenhagen 2024, when FaZe Clan won.

  • FaZe Clan 2-1 Team Vitality – March 30, 2024

Team Vitality Form


Team Vitality looked excellent during the ESL Pro League Season 19 group stage, finishing with a perfect 3-0 record. In Group B, they made it past Sharks Esports (2-0), BetBoom Team (2-0), and in the final match Vitality defeated The MongolZ (2-0).

Across the three games played, Team Vitality dropped double digits only twice, which is a further testament to their dominant run. However, while Team Vitality were unstoppable, they also played only some of the weakest teams of the tournament.

This doesn’t mean that Team Vitality don’t have what it takes to compete with the best, as there’s a reason why they’re ranked no.6 CS esports team in the world. Prior to ESL Pro League, Vitality on BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024 and reached the semifinals of PGL Major Copenhagen 2024, so despite their less-than-convincing run through the group stage, this is still an elite team.

Team Vitality have not made any roster changes.

  • Mathieu "ZywOo" Herbaut
  • Lotan "Spinx" Giladi

FaZe Clan Form


FaZe Clan entered the ESL Pro League following an impressive performance at the Copenhagen Major, where they placed second. A couple of weeks later, they added a gold medal from Intel Extreme Masters Chengdu 2024.

As the current no.1 Counter-Strike esports team in the world, FaZe were also priced as one of the main favourites to win ESL Pro League Season 19, and they’re still in the race for the trophy. Still, FaZe haven’t looked amazing early on.

FaZe Clan qualified for the playoffs by placing third in Group A following a shock loss to Astralis in the upper-bracket semifinals. Still, FaZe have performed well since then, with wins against Eternal Fire (2-1), Fnatic (2-0), Monte (2-1), and Natus Vincere, who FaZe defeated 2-0 in Round of 12.

Verdict

Team Vitality and FaZe Clan are two of the main candidates to win ESL Pro League Season 19, yet only one team will reach the semifinals. The offered esports betting odds suggest that this is as close to a coin flip as it can get, and considering what we’ve seen from the two sides, that sounds fair.

Team Vitality haven’t played as many games, but they did get to see FaZe Clan play, which should help with strategising for this series. On the other side, FaZe Clan are in excellent form, having won their last four series.

FaZe Clan look like they’re in a better spot since playing more games helps with momentum. But Vitality are good enough to put up a fight, so this series will likely go the distance.
