It’s been one week of intense VCT Masters Copenhagen action for every VALORANT fan out there. While the tournament has reached the point of the semi-finals, the hype is far from being over. From major upsets to miraculous comebacks we have seen it all this tournament.
The next game which everyone can’t wait to watch is between FNC and FPX. Both Fnatic and FunPlus Phoenix have been immense in their tournament run until now. It can be said that the winner for this lower bracket match is as unpredictable as it can be.
This would be the 2nd time we see these 2 European representatives square up in the VCT Masters Copenhagen. Due to their first match ending in such dominating fashion many had felt that FPX would be out sooner than later. FPX on the other hand took the loss on their chin and started playing each game like no other.
With their unique strategies and combinations of characters, they found much success in this tournament. They haven’t looked back ever since. Defeating teams like Guild Esports and DRX with ease while preparing themselves at this spot.

On one hand, Fnatic qualified directly to the playoffs, but for FPX, it was a completely different story. FunPlus Phoenix had to take the longer route and start at the group stages of the tournaments. They weren’t the ones who many expected would be able to qualify for the playoffs as well while having quite an impressive win-loss record.
At the VCT Masters Copenhagen their first game was against Xerxia Esports. While the game started with a bang, it ended 2-1 with FunPlus Phoenix winning the last round. Following that there was an exciting battle between FPX & DRX. Which DRX won in not as much of an easier manner and FPX losing 2-1. Their last game in the group stages was against Northeption. FPX dominated the game with ease winning it and qualifying for the playoffs.
Their first Playoffs game was against Fnatic. FPX lost the game 2-0 in quite an easy manner. The score ended at 13-10 and 13-4 on Icebox and Haven respectively. As stated above, they went on to defeat Guild Esports and DRX with ease.
Fnatic, after their dominating victory over FunPlus Phoenix, went on to face Paper Rex. While the game between the two teams was one to watch for any passionate Valorant fan. Within this game, we got to the best of both teams, yet Fnatic lost 2-0 to Paper Rex.
While looking at the past matches between FNC and FPX, we see quite the dominance by Fnatic. In the past 7 times they faced each other Fnatic has won 5 of the matches between the two teams. This could be a strong reason why Fnatic are the favorites to win this game as well. Being the top team from Europe it does make more sense, but tournaments like the VCT Masters Copenhagen can often throw up huge surprises.
Following their loss to Paper Rex, Fnatic had quite the match with Leviatan. Within that game, there were clear moments when it felt like Fnatic had lost the game. If so, they would have been knocked out of the tournament. But they came back and won the final map in Overtime.
Some might think that this game is going to end up with the same outcome it did the first time, but there is a high chance things will turn out different. Within this tournament, if there is one team who has been able to pull themselves very well after a loss it is FunPlus Phoenix.
