BBL Esports and Natus Vincere will clash on Thursday, April 25, in the fourth week of VALORANT Champions Tour 2024: EMEA - Stage 1. It'll mark their second meeting of the season, and according to esports betting odds, Natus Vincere should win comfortably.

Valorant bookmakers have Natus Vincere priced as 1.20 favourites to defeat BBL Esports and the latter as 4.33 underdogs. At the current price, NaVi are all but guaranteed to come out ahead, and based on what they've shown recently, that sounds like a fair assessment.

  • Natus Vincere have lost just one game this season
  • BBL Esports have won two games so far in VCT 2024: EMEA Stage 1
  • NaVi are expected to win

Head to Head


BBL Esports last met with Natus Vincere in February, when Natus Vincere won.

  • Natus Vincere 2-1 BBL Esports – February 21, 2024

BBL Esports Form


BBL Esports are in a good position ahead of their fourth match of VCT 2024: EMEA Stage 1. They lost their opening match of the stage against Gentle Mates but have since added two 2-0 victories against KOI and Team Heretics.

Beating KOI shouldn't mean much, but seeing BBL Esports crush Team Heretics should make you wonder whether BBL are stronger than how it seemed early into the season. BBL Esports won that's series convincingly, crushing Heretics with 13-7 and 13-10, but it remains to be seen whether BBL Esports will look as good against Natus Vincere.

That doesn't seem like a realistic possibility, but with how well Efe "Elite" Teber has been playing recently, BBL Esports might be able to do some damage. The 19-year-old is the current second-highest-rated player in the league, with an average performance rating of 1.29 – however, he's also the only BBL Esports player with a rating higher than 1.07.

  • Efe "Elite" Teber

Natus Vincere Form


Natus Vincere are in excellent form ahead of this match. They've been performing at a high level since the start of the season, and even though we did not get to see them represent EMEA at Masters Madrid, Natus Vincere are arguably one of the current top Valorant esports teams in the region.

They're 5-1 on the season, with just one loss in the semifinals of VCT 2024: EMEA Kickoff when they lost to Team Heretics. Since then, Natus Vincere have beaten Team Vitality (2-0) and Team Liquid (2-1), and last round, they defeated Karmine Corp (2-1).

Essentially, Natus Vincere have already faced and won against some of the region's top teams, which is a very good indication of how good they are.

Natus Vincere Squad & Team News


Natus Vincere have not made any recent roster changes.

  • Kyrylo "ANGE1" Karasov
  • Dmitry "SUYGETSU" Ilyushin
  • Pontus "Zyppan" Eek
  • Andrey "Shao" Kiprsky
  • Ardis "ardiis" Svarenieks

Verdict

With how well Natus Vincere has been playing recently, it's very difficult to doubt their ability to sweep BBL Esports. However, BBL Esports are performing much better than people give it credit for.

BBL Esports already defeated Team Heretics which is not something to ignore, and even though beating Natus VIncere won't come as easy, BBL Esports have the tools needed to take a map off the surging NaVi.
