The Group C matches of Valorant Champions 2023 continue with the FNATIC vs ZETA Division clash

FNATIC are set to embark on their pursuit of the three-peat as they square off against ZETA Division. While the Masters Tokyo Champions are a massive favorite over the Japanese squad in this encounter, ZETA’s recent form shown in the Pacific LCQ makes them a force to be reckoned with. With that in mind, here is our preview and prediction guide for the matchup.


FNATIC have the opportunity to etch their name onto history as they begin their Valorant Champions 2023 journey. Having already won the previous two International events of the year, Boaster and Co are the biggest favorites to win the year’s final major event as well. Moreover, this occasion also presents FNATIC with an opportunity to avenge their exit at the hands of ZETA during the Masters Reykjavik last year, thus adding an extra layer of motivation to have a dominant start to their campaign.

FNATIC vs ZETA Division

ZETA Division

ZETA failed to qualify for Masters Tokyo despite clinching a spot in the Pacific League playoffs. However, they orchestrated a remarkable turnaround from there and managed to secure their spot in the biggest event of the year through the Pacific LCQ. Although ZETA Division have the bad luck of starting the event with the worst possible pairing, following the dominant run by the Japanese squad in the Last Chance Qualifier, it would be unwise to discredit their chances against FNATIC completely.
