At first glance, this match can be considered a “light walk” for FaZe Clan. But the Team Spirit has already proved that they should not be underestimated.

FaZe Clan vs Team Spirit
Team Spirit started their way at this event from New Challengers Stage. There they lost only against G2 and won three matches against Imperial, Eternal Fire, and Astralis. In the next stage, Legends, the “Dragons” managed to win three matches in a row. FURIA, Heroic, and Copenhagen Flames weren’t able to beat Team Spirit. In the playoffs, Team Spirit managed to win FURIA the second time in a row, with a score of 2:0.
In their turn, FaZe Clan lost the debut match against ENCE and managed to win three matches in a row. In the playoffs, karrigan & co clinched the victory against NiP, with a score of 2:1.
FaZe Clan and Team Spirit met last time at PGL Major Stockholm 2021. Then the European squad beat “Dragons” on Overpass with a score of 16:11.
Map pool. Team Spirit doesn’t play Inferno, while FaZe Clan always bans Vertigo. But karrigan & co know how to play this map, they practiced and played one official match. But I think that they will not risk in the semi-final of the Major, so we’ll not see Vertigo today.
FaZe will pick Ancient, while Team Spirit exactly choose Dust 2 as their pick. Dust 2 is a secret weapon of the “Dragons”. For the decider, in my opinion, teams will choose Nuke. FaZe Clan won the last seven Nuke, while Team Spirit had six out of seven victories on that map. So, on the one hand, this match might not be interesting, but if you look deep into the statistics, today’s standoff in the first semi-final deserves that status.
My prediction will be the next. Team Spirit has a good run at this tournament, they have already achieved a lot, and today will be their last game in Antwerp. FaZe Clan must win this tournament, because here and now is their best chance for the title.
