How to get a match demo that I can’t download


I've been away from the game for a few months and I remember a match where I had a 2K one round and I downloaded the match again, but now I cannot download my game to watch later. The only thing I can view is the scoreboard of that match.

Is there a way I can download the demo? It doesn't have download as an option when I right-click the on the match.

It is unfortunate, but some matches you play will not actually let you download a demo and only allow you to view the scoreboard, yet some matches will allow you to download demos.

I don't have anything authoratative to back this up, but I will speak for personal anecdote.

I found that by downloading matches immediately after finishing them, I could access them even if they were from months back, and re-download the match demo. Unfortunately, if I never actually got around to downloading a demo, CS:GO would remove that option, and only allow me to see the scoreboard. Example below:
