BBL Esports and FOKUS seek upsets – VCT 2022 EMEA Stage 2 Week 3

Following Weeks 1-2 that featured surprise results, VCT 2022 EMEA Stage 2 Challengers returns with Week 3 of competition. As usual, six games -three from Group A and three from Group B- will take place throughout the weekend.

While we offer our predictions for all six matches, our focus is on the final two matches of the week, whose results we selected as most impactful to the league and standings.



Here’s the weekly schedule and our quick predictions: (*predicted winners in bold)

  1. Team Liquid — Guild Esports
  2. OGLDN — G2 Esports
  3. BIG  — Natus Vincere
  4. Acend — Fnatic
  5. BBL Esports — M3 Champions
  6. FOKUS — FunPlus Phoenix

BBL Esports – M3C

Both teams finished the first two weeks with a equal wins and loses. Both teams have established synergy and stable rosters. However, M3C (Gambit) is by far more favored in this match, given their track record and recent performance. The current scoreline might fool people, but M3c should take this duel with relative ease.

BBL managed to take down Natus Vincere in the opening match of VCT 2022 EMEA Stage 2 Challengers, although they struggled at the beginning. The Turkish representatives are not afraid to bring new agents to the table, and they will certainly try to catch M3C off guard. Two crucial names of the roster, QutionerX and AsLanM4shadoW, kicked off the stage hot. And that will be the decisive point for the team.

However, two versus five is is still not enough.

FunPlus Phoenix – Fokus

In another match of the week, newcomers FOKUS will try to tackle FPX.

FOKUS showed everyone why they are in this league and how they beat all the local league champions one by one by giving both G2 and Acend a hard time. Even with two defeats, FOKUS seems like a really strong team anyone should be wary of. FPX didn’t look good in the first series they played. However, the first matches of the league are always challenging for the teams. The following week they 2-0-ed G2 in a fairly close match.

Coming into this week, FPX are favored, yet the margin is minute. If you like to favor the underdogs in Valorant betting, placing a singles bet on FOKUS will give you insane returns.
