NAVI Junior - Latest performance & results
The second team of the Russian organization Natus Vincere heads into the duel with Project X as the clear favorite, given the odds. The young team won two of their first three duels, although only one of them can be considered a real benchmark.
On the first day of the Swiss system, star player B1T was missing, who took part in the final tournaments of the year with the official NAVI team and was thus allowed to play against Astralis, for example. The third matchday was a default win against Espada, who dropped out of the tournament.
The duel against Winstrike was the first appearance of the full roster and a very convincing one. With 16:12 and 16:13 the Russian team won both maps and especially B1T was convincing. Due to the young star player and also the general individual strength on the part of the Juniors, NAVI is clearly favored in this duel.
Project X - Latest performance & results
Project X is an Ukrainian Tier-2 team that competed at Nine to Five last week and plays in numerous B- and C-Tier tournaments. The Vulkan Fight Series has been quite successful so far. A loss on the first day of play against HellRaisers was followed by two wins against Unique and Lyngby Vikings.
Thus, the team has two games to secure promotion and enter the Vulkan Series playoffs. This alone would be a success for the Ukrainian young stars. However, Project X will go into the duel with NAVI Juniors as clear underdogs in view of the betting odds.
