Previously, the teams did not hold face-to-face meetings, and today they will have to determine the strongest in the bo3 format.

FunPlus Phoenix shape

Representatives of Europe showed themselves well for the group stage. Having earned an easy victory over KRU Esports, on two maps Icebox (14-12), Bind (13-12), the team met with the North Americans from XSET, where they could not justify their title of favorite Pearl (7-13), Fracture (13 -4), Breeze (5-13). In the knockout match, Phoenix again met with KRU Esports, and the result was a natural, easy victory on Icebox (13-9), Bind (13-4).

The team played their first match in the playoffs against the Korean top teams from DRX, and despite a tense struggle on the first map, they eventually lost the match in a clean sheet. First, the teams met at Ascent, and despite their choice, the Phoenixes could not snatch victory in 12 additional rounds (17-19), the second map was Breeze, and then the Koreans closed their opponents without any problems (5-13).

Form Leviatan

The Chilean team finished the group stage as a favorite. Having closed dry the first opponents from Team Liquid (Haven 13-10), Ascent (13-10), the team met with the Japanese from Paper Rex, in the match of the winners. As a result, an easy victory on their Haven map (13-8), and a slightly more difficult one on Bind (13-11), took the team to the playoffs.

After reaching the playoffs, the team was waiting for a meeting with the Brazilian tops from LOUD, and the result was expected.

Match prediction

Elimination matches are always an interesting spectacle, especially when it takes place at such a major tournament as Valorant Champions 2022. Phoenixes are my favorites, firstly because there was a similar situation at the last Masters Copenhagen, the team fell into a loser from where they passed from the first round to the grand final, and won the victory. Leviatan, in principle, started the tournament well, but there are doubts, Paper Rex is frankly not a very strong team, and the Liquids show a controversial performance. Separately, I would like to note that the Phoenix player - ANGE1, had his birthday yesterday, which means that the team is motivated to give him a victory.

Outcome: FunPlus Phoenix win

According to leading bookmakers predictions, the team FunPlus Phoenix are the favorite with average odds 1.341 at the moment. Respectively, bookmakers consider Leviatán Esports to be the outsider of the match with odds on a victory in the sum of about 3.904.
