G2 - Latest performance & results
G2 Esports was founded in 2013 and entered CS:GO in 2015. Traditionally, the Spanish organization had many French players under contract. Around 1 ½ years ago and with the signing of nexa and huNter-, the team switched to an international lineup and signed NiKo, an absolute star player, at the end of 2020. The team still had problems showing solid performances last year, mainly due to short preparation times, but made a renewed step towards the top of the world during the winter break.
The victory against FURIA, which played with stand-in honda, was a mandatory task for the individually strong G2. In the upper-bracket Astralis was already waiting, who had won quite clearly against EG in the first round. However, the team around IGL nexa played well and won the first map and their pick with Dust2. After a rather weak performance on Vertigo, G2 already had one leg in the upper finals after winning the second half pistol round on the third map with a 10-5 halftime lead in their pocket. However, Astralis, especially dupreeh, fought their way back to win Inferno 16-14, which was a close call.
A particularly painful defeat for G2, which, however, in the smallest way diminishes the great performance of the team. In the duel between NAVI and G2, the odds favor the mixed team slightly and rightly so. NiKo once again showed incredible dominance and all in all the team is in great shape.
Natus Vincere vs. G2 - Map-Veto prediction
Vertigo and Overpass are likely bans. Between NAVI and G2, the tip for the maps is Nuke and Mirage. Dust2 would be well conceivable as a decider.
Natus Vincere vs. G2 - Prediction
The duel between NAVI and G2, between the two star players s1mple and NiKo will be a great one. Both teams showed good performances and especially G2 made the match against Astralis surprisingly exciting.
