Natus Vincere - Latest performance & results
NAVI, which alongside s1mple in recent weeks also performed better and better as a team, even made it to the final at the IEM Beijing three weeks ago. In this final they already led 2:0 in the duel with Vitality, but in the end they lost all three following games and therefore the final.
The BLAST Fall Finals were mixed, a small sensation in the duel with Astralis on the first matchday was followed by a narrow defeat against Vitality, who beat the Russian organization on two maps.
After a clear win against today's competitor FURIA, NAVI finally had to farewell BLAST in the lower-bracket semi-final with Astralis and finished fourth, a little below expectations. Nevertheless, the performances were completely fine and the team manages to organize itself better and better. Between NAVI and FURIA the odds favor the Russian favorite deservedly.
FURIA - Latest performance & results
FURIA dominated the NA-region in the online phase for a long time, convinced especially with a cheeky playing style and great mechanical skill. Their return to Europe went relatively well for the time being, but at BLAST the team did not really succeed.
After a 1:2 defeat on the first matchday in a duel with G2, they could win the first game in the lower-bracket with OG and thus delay the elimination by one round. But in the decisive match with Natus Vincere FURIA had no chance. With 0:2 the Brazilians lost against s1mple and NAVI.
Also due to the last game, the odds between NAVI and FURIA are out of favor for Natus Vincere. Especially VINI, which was so constant in the beginning, decreased a bit at the end of the tournament. In the duel with NAVI it will be important for FURIA to be there individually and to punish every mistake of the Russian organization.
