The VCT Americas League features franchised teams from NA, LATAM, and Brazil battling it out. These teams have been competing to stay in the top six of the Regular Season to make it to the Playoffs. From there, the top three teams will qualify for the Masters Tokyo. Week 6 will conclude with a match between NA's NRG Esports and Brazil's FURIA.
Week 6 Day 2 featured two matchups. LOUD and 100 Thieves first faced each other, with the former maintaining their top position with a 2-0 win in the BO3 (Best of Three) series. The second match was between the two LATAM teams, Leviatán and KRU Esports. Leviatán dominated, winning the BO3 series 2-0.
NRG Esports vs FURIA - Who will outperform other in VCT Americas League?
NRG Esports had a great showing at the VCT LOCK//IN as the team pushed LOUD to their absolute limit. However, the same can't be said for their performance in the VCT Americas League. NRG has won only three out of their six series so far.
FURIA has had a good run in 2023. Their performance at LOCK//IN was fairly decent, but in the Americas League, they have won four out of their six series and were also in the top two on the table in the initial weeks.
Statistically, the matchup favors FURIA. However, NRG Esports comprises experienced players who have tasted a lot of success in the past. Thus, the match will be close and could go either way.
The two teams have not faced each other before.
NRG's last match was against 100 Thieves in the league, where they won the BO3 series 2-0.
FURIA's last match was against MIBR. They clinched the BO3 series 2-0.
