Predictions

Considering the previous encounters between the teams and their recent matches, NRG Esports has a better chance of winning the VCT 2022 NA LCQ Lower Bracket match. Both NA squads have the potential to have a tough fight. NRG Esports has shown better results in their past matches. However, Evil Geniuses have the potential to surprise their opponents.

NRG Esports is a strong team to watch out for in the tournament after they finished off in the fourth position at VCT 2022 North America Stage 2 Challengers. Yet, one cannot underestimate Evil Geniuses if they come stronger than before.
