MOUZ vs Apeks Predictions

Esports bookmakers have MOUZ priced as firm favourites (1.36) to defeat Apeks (3.00) on Thursday, which isn’t too shocking. MOUZ are the current favourites to win Elisa Masters Espoo 2023, and it’s tough to find firm reasons to argue with that, whereas Apeks are one of the prime candidates to crash out early.

  • MOUZ are the current no.3 on the global CS ladder
  • Apeks are ranked no.19
  • MOUZ recently placed second at CS Asia Championships 2023

Head to Head


MOUZ and Apeks have yet to meet on CS2.

MOUZ Form


MOUZ enter Elisa Masters Espoo 2023 in good form. Even though they’re 5-5 across their last 10 outings, four of those defeats came against the current no.1 team in the world, FaZe Clan.

At the start of November, MOUZ made the finals of CS Asia Championships 2023, losing the finals to FaZe. Prior to that, MOUZ also reached the semifinals of Intel Extreme Masters Sydney 2023 (knocked out by FaZe) and reached quarterfinals of Thunderpick World Championship 2023, where they were once again eliminated by FaZe.

Since the transition to CS2, MOUZ have been posting solid performances and have only been losing to FaZe Clan. That’s seriously impressive as it suggests that MOUZ should do more than fine against lesser opponents at Elisa Masters Espoo 2023.

MOUZ Squad & Team News


No changes for MOUZ.

  • Ádám "torzsi" Torzsás
  • Dorian "xertioN" Berman
  • Kamil "siuhy" Szkaradek
  • Jimi "Jimpphat" Salo

Apeks Form


Apeks haven’t shown much over the last couple of months, as they’ve not won or come close to winning a single CS2 tournament. In October, they placed ninth-12th at IEM Sydney 2023, then added a quarterfinals run at Roobet Cup 2023, and just over a week ago exited BetBoom Dacha: Closed Qualifier in fifth-sixth place.

Results-wise, Apeks are in a good spot, with a 4-1 record across their last five outings. However, those include mainly games against weaker teams such as Movistar Riders, FORZE Esports, and Pompa Team.

Apeks Squad & Team News


Apeks have not announced any new roster changes.

  • Tim "nawwk" Jonasson
  • Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad
  • Damjan "kyxsan" Stoilkovski
  • Aleksandar "CacaNito" Kjulukoski
  • Ådne "sense" Fredriksen

Verdict

While Apeks have achieved some success earlier this season, they don’t look ready to face MOUZ. The latter are in excellent form and the main favourites to win the tournament, which alone should indicate the balance of power between the two teams.

Since this is a best-of-one (BO1) series, there’s a world where Apeks keep it closer than expected. However, at the offered betting odds, I like MOUZ to win with four rounds to spare.
