FaZe Clan and mousesports are slated to clash this Monday in the second stage of ESL Pro League Season 11: Europe in what will be their second meeting of the tournament.

FaZe started their campaign with a commanding 2-0 win over the struggling TYLOO. A pair of 1-2 losses to mousesports and G2 followed, but they rallied to close out the group stage with a brace of 2-0 wins over Virtus.pro and OG.

Finishing second in Group C with a 3-2 record, FaZe then had to play ForZe in a tiebreaker for the right to progress to the second stage. Nikola “NiKo” Kovač and his crew proved far too strong for their Russian adversaries, winning 16-4 on Inferno and 16-10 on Nuke to book a spot in the last six.

While FaZe have not looked particularly strong in the last few months, they’ve shown moments of greatness. One of those occurred at Intel Extreme Masters XIV Beijing, where they reached the semi-finals. Another was in the BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 Regular Season, where FaZe secured the top seed by dominating their group with a 2-0 win over Ninjas in Pyjamas and consecutive sweeps against Team Liquid.

Even their run at IEM Katowice was not as bad as it may seem at first glance. Although FaZe finished in seventh-eighth place, their only two defeats came against the eventual champions, Natus Vincere, in round one (1-2) and in the final match of the lower bracket (1-2).

Mousesports rose to fame at the end of 2019 when they won the CS:GO Asia Championships, ESL Pro League Season 10 – Finals, cs_summit 5 and made it to the finals of EPICENTER 2019. It did not stop there, as Finn “karrigan” Andersen and co. carried their momentum into 2020 and won the ICE Challenge at the start of February.

Their impeccable run left the CS:GO esports community in disbelief, but it all came crashing down in March when mouz failed to impress at IEM Katowice. Although the European mix started their journey with a commanding win over TYLOO, they were stopped in their tracks in round two when they suffered a humiliating reverse sweep at the hands of G2. Later on, mouz made easy work of MAD Lions (2-0) but fell flat against 100 Thieves, who handed them reverse sweep in the lower bracket finals.

Mouz have looked solid throughout the ESL Pro League. They picked up a 2-1 win over FaZe and 2-0 wins over TYLOO, G2 and Virtus.pro, while their only defeat so far came against OG (1-2). Still, karrigan and his crew are not looking quite as sharp as they did in latter months of 2019.


This is an online tournament, so most of the results these two sides produced before the COVID-19 outbreak can be thrown out of the window. Having said that, we can’t ignore the fact that mouz have been on a downwards trajectory while FaZe have been steadily improving.

Although FaZe are not as solid as they were in 2018, they have consistently ranked among the top-10 teams in the world since November 2019. What’s more, they have been performing well throughout their online endeavours. That suggests they should do just fine against mouz this Monday, despite the fact they lost to karrigan and co. only last weekend.

An outright bet on FaZe is something to ponder, but mouz are not a team to underestimate. Backing a three-map series is a much safer option and still offers decent odds.
