FaZe vs G2: Who will qualify for CS:GO's BLAST Premier Spring Finals playoffs as Group A's top seed?

On Day 2 of the BLAST Premier Spring Finals Group Stage, PGL Antwerp Major 2022 winner FaZe Clan will take on one of Europe's most reputed organizations, G2 Esports, in a best-of-three series.

This matchup between two of Europe's finest rosters will determine the winners of Group A of the Group Stage and, ultimately, the team that earns a direct entry into the tournament's playoffs stage.


Predictions

Both FaZe and G2 kicked off their Spring Finals 2022 campaign in exciting fashion, claiming remarkable victories in their opening matches of the Group Stage. While FaZe bagged a 2-0 victory over paiN Gaming, G2 ousted Team Vitality by a 2-1 scoreline to seal their spot in the playoffs.

After their Antwerp Major victory in May 2022, FaZe Clan managed to claim the spot of the #1 team in CS:GO, based on rankings by ESL and HLTV. G2, on the other hand, has plunged to the 8th spot in both sets of rankings due to their recent form.

With current performances and squad density taken into consideration, FaZe has a clear upper hand over G2. However, in the world of esports, a talented roster such as that of G2 is certainly capable of toppling the Major champions and earning a favorable position in the playoffs.


Head-to-head

Since 2021, FaZe Clan has met G2 Esports in a total of 15 official maps. G2 leads the head-to-head encounters with 9 wins, leaving FaZe with 6 wins. Out of the 15 maps played, 3 have progressed to overtime, with their face-off on Mirage at the IEM Katowice 2022 Grand Finals stretching up to a 31-27 scoreline.

Despite leading with 9 map wins, G2 Esports has failed to defeat FaZe Clan in their sole encounter of 2022, as the latter emerged with a dominant 3-0 victory.


Recent results

In terms of recent results, FaZe Clan has a streak of success to back their confidence. They claimed a 5th-6th spot at IEM Dallas 2022, winning 2 out of 4 matches, and succeeded in winning the PGL Major Antwerp 2022 by winning against 6 out of their 7 opponents.

FaZe was also crowned champions at two more S-tier events from 2022, IEM Katowice and ESL Pro League Season 15.

G2 Esports, unlike FaZe, witnessed minimal success throughout 2022. At the recent IEM Dallas, G2 were pushed to a 5th-6th place finish, whereas PGL Major Antwerp saw the team finish 9th-11th.

ESL Pro League Season 15 witnessed G2's worst performance of the year as they were knocked out in the Group Stage. G2's best efforts were seen at IEM Katowice 2022, where they finished as runners-up to FaZe Clan.
