Match Prediction: LOUD - Fnatic | VALORANT

LOUD and Fnatic will meet as part of the VALORANT Champions Tour 2023: LOCK//IN São Paulo Grand Finals. There are two factors here. Firstly, the public will zealously support the Brazilian team. Secondly, objectively Fnatic shows the strongest game in the championship, and there are no “buts” here.

Frankly speaking, the European team has every chance to close the tournament in their favor and give their region an additional slot at the Masters in Tokyo.

The only argument in favor of LOUD is the same audience. And if Fnatic in some incredible way floats to the screams of the crowd, then only then will the Brazilians have a chance.

However, all outside factors aside, I would look at Fnatic winning. Still, this team managed to show itself brighter than the rest, and the removal of Natus Vincere in the semi-finals is a real sweetie.

Form LOUD

The first team of the Brazilian rating became the winner of VALORANT Champions 2022 at the end of last season. However, LOUD did not manage to keep all the top five, and the team did not play anywhere in the offseason.

As for the performances at the VALORANT Champions Tour 2023: LOCK//IN São Paulo, here the Brazilian team managed to get through a difficult bracket, knocking out Gen.G Esports, Karmine Corp and NRG from the championship.

However, a few words need to be said about the semi-finals, where the team barely outplayed DRX. Moreover, it was clear that LOUD began to break, but the guys on the moral and strong-willed were able to finish the meeting.

Latest LOUD results:

  • Victory over OpTic Gaming with a score of 3:1.
  • Victory over Gen.G Esports with a score of 2:0.
  • Victory over Karmine Corp with a score of 2:0.
  • Victory over NRG with a score of 2:1.
  • Victory over DRX with a score of 3:2.

Best LOUD cards:

  • Ascent - 100% win rate.
  • Icebox - 100% win rate.
  • Pearl - 75% of wins.
  • Split - 67% of wins.
  • Fracture - 67% of wins.

However, the Brazilian team is not yet shown on the Haven and Lotus maps.

Fnatic form

The second team of the European rating in the off-season became the winner of two Superdome and Riot Games ONE PRO INVITATIONAL tournaments, finding the optimal balance along the way.

So, at the start of VALORANT Champions Tour 2023: LOCK//IN São Paulo, the European team managed to close out Sentinels, FURIA and 100 Thieves without discarding a single card.

Moreover, in the semi-finals, Fnatic defeated Natus Vincere without a chance, where, as I understand it, everything finally fell into place.

Fnatic latest results:

  • Victory over ZETA DIVISION with a score of 13:5.
  • Victory over the Sentinels with a score of 2:0.
  • Victory over FURIA with a score of 2:0.
  • Victory over 100 Thieves with a score of 2:0.
  • Victory over Natus Vincere with a score of 3:0.

Best Fnatic Maps:

  • Ascent - 100% win rate.
  • Icebox - 100% win rate.
  • Fracture - 100% win rate.
  • Haven - 100% win rate.
  • Split - 100% wins.
  • Lotus - 100% wins.

In turn, the European team will definitely not show up on the Pearl map.

Prediction for the match LOUD vs Fnatic

Absolutely all factors speak in favor of Fnatic. Even the Brazilians themselves went through their bracket with big problems, where only NRG and DRX can be distinguished from the rivals.

Moreover, LOUD does not play on the Haven map, which means that Lotus will have to take risks. In general, the situation is developing against the Brazilian team.

Therefore, in this case, I would recommend betting on the victory of the Fnatic team.

Now, the majority of bookmaker companies believe in Fnatic victory. Odds on them are equal to 1.56. According to bookmakers data, LOUD are the outsider and odds on their victory amounts 2.541.
