Natus Vincere vs Complexity Predictions

Counter-Strike betting sites have Natus Vincere priced as 1.36 favourites to defeat Complexity, who enter the match as 3.00 underdogs. Since Natus Vincere are the reigning Major champions, it makes sense for them to be favoured.

  • Natus Vincere are one of the main favourites to win the tournament
  • Complexity have already beaten Pera and Heroic
  • NaVi won the last time these two teams met

Head to Head


Natus Vincere and Complexity last met in January when Natus Vincere won.

  • Natus Vincere 2-0 Complexity – January 22, 2024

Natus Vincere Form


Natus Vincere entered ESL Pro League Season 19 in excellent form and fresh off a huge title run at PGL Major Copenhagen 2024. This wasn't their only accomplishment of the season, as NaVi also placed top four at BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024, although they could only manage a seventh-eighth-place finish at Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2024.

As Major champions, Natus Vincere were expected to make it though the ESL Pro League Season 19 group stage, and they delivered. But they only had to beat FlyQuest (2-0) and BIG (2-1), which isn't to impressive. Nevertheless, NaVi played well in both series.

Complexity Form


Complexity has not won a single Counter-Strike esports tournament this year, and no one expects them to change that in Malta. But even though Complexity isn't viewed as one of the main title contenders, they have fought their way to the knockout stage with wins against Pera (2-0) and Heroic (2-1).

Like is the case with Natus Vincere, Complexity didn't have to defeat any notable teams; however, they played well against Heroic, who they reverse swept with 13-11 on Vertigo and 13-7 on Anubis. Led by Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski and Håkon "hallzerk" Fjærli, who ended the series with 1.35 and 1.30 performance ratings, Complexity seem to be in good form.

But they'll need more from other members if they wish to make it past Natus Vincere.

Verdict

Natus Vincere are rightfuly priced as favourites for this match. They're the current Major champions and one of the most stacked teams in the world. However, Complexity haven't looked too bad in their recent outings and if they can keep their wheels spinning, Complexity might be able to do some damage to NaVi on Sunday.

Natus Vincere should win, and their map pool is good enough to keep Complexity at bay. So, even though Complexity shouldn't be ignored, Natus Vincere to sweep at 2.37 is a much more inviting bet.
