T1 and FURIA will face off in the first round of the Omega Bracket at VALORANT Champions Tour 2023: LOCK//IN São Paulo. An interesting duel in which there is no pronounced favorite.
To be honest, the South Korean team does not inspire confidence. Although, here you also need to understand that the Brazilians do not leave a holistic impression.
At the same time, T1 showed disastrous results in the off-season, while FURIA did not play anywhere at all. Therefore, here I would focus on three maps that will surely be included in the plans of both teams.
The South Korean team has seriously updated its roster in order to get the right to play in the Asian league. At the same time, it should be noted that the backbone of the team still remained unchanged, but there were no results.
As for success in the off-season, T1 managed to visit the Ludwig x Tarik Invitational, but there was a complete failure. As a result, the South Koreans suffered two defeats and went home, which does not add any pluses to the guys.
Latest T1 results:
- Victory over Project VII with a score of 2:0.
- Victory over Northern Forces with a score of 2:0.
- Defeated by The Guard with a score of 1:2.
- Defeated by TSM with a score of 0:2.
The third team in the Brazilian ranking did not make any major changes in the off-season, only partially adding to its roster. Moreover, the team did not play anywhere, actually waiting for their chance at the home championship.
Based on past results, FURIA placed second on the VALORANT Champions Tour 2022: South America Last Chance Qualifier, earning her a place at VALORANT Champions 2022.
However, the Brazilian team failed there, suffering two defeats and finishing in last place. So think about what you can expect from FURIA now.
Latest FURIA results:
- Victory over 9z with a score of 2:0.
- Lost to KRÜ Esports with a score of 0:3.
- Victory over TBK Esports with a score of 3:0.

Prediction for T1 vs FURIA match
A controversial meeting, since both teams have some kind of weight, but in fact they are represented by weak lineups that have nothing to offer in terms of competition.
In such a situation, it makes sense to expect an equal fight, since T1 and FURIA will certainly knead the clay and wait on mistakes. Therefore, in this case, I would recommend betting on Total on cards 2.5 more.
Now, the majority of bookmaker companies believe in FURIA Esports victory. Odds on them are equal to 1.705. According to bookmakers data, T1 are the outsider and odds on their victory amounts 3.71.
