The intense and thrilling BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 Europe RMR A is just around the corner, with the qualifier set to start on Thursday at 11:00 (CEST). The RMR will feature 16 of the best Counter-CS:GO teams from Europe, all vying for a chance to play at the Paris Major 2023.
The stakes are high as only the top four teams from the qualifier will earn a coveted spot in the Legends stage, while teams that place 5th to 8th must compete in the challenger's stage. With much on the line, fans can expect to see intense and exciting matches as top-tier teams battle it for supremacy.
When looking at the head-to-head history between these two teams, GamerLegion is currently at the top with three wins and two losses against Apeks. With recent head-to-head proving that the match will be a close encounter, both teams will go into the matchup believing that they can win the match. GamerLegion comes into this match ranked number 33 on the HLTV World Ranking but has in recent months played against lower-tier opponents after not qualifying for bigger events. The last time GamerLegion was in action they lost to EPIC DUDES 14-16 in the IEM Dallers 2023 Europe Open Qualifier.
On the other hand, Apeks is ranked 38 on the HLTV world rankings. Similar to GamerLegion, Apeks haven't found their footing in recent qualifiers and tournaments. Most recently Apeks fell short against MOUZ in the BetBoom Playlist Urbanistic 2023.
Overall, this match promises to be a close encounter between two strong teams. GamerLegion is the small favorite based on their recent RMR run back at IEM Rio Major where they knocked out G2, but Apeks has shown that they are capable of beating top teams in the world.
It’s difficult to predict a clear winner. However, we believe that GamerLegion will make yet another Major run and therefore secure the victory over Apeks. With a stronger map pool and better overall rating, the young and talented roster should be able to take the win a go up 1-0 in the Swiss round. The match will likely be a close one, but GamerLegion will emerge victorious in the end.
