Valorant bookmakers have Natus Vincere priced as 1.30 favourites and KOI as 3.20 underdogs for Thursday's affair, which sounds right based on the team's results this season. However, like KOI, Natus Vincere haven't looked great recently.

  • Natus Vincere are on a three-game losing streak
  • KOI have managed one win from the last three series played
  • KOI and Natus Vincere have yet to meet this season

Head to Head


This will mark the first meeting between KOI and Natus Vincere of the 2024 Valorant esports season.

KOI Form


KOI weren't a great Valorant team in the first stage of the season, and they've not shown much more since the start of VCT 2024: EMEA Stage 2. KOI started the stage with a 1-2 loss to FUT Esports, to which they added a solid victory against GIANTX and another 0-2 defeat against Gentle Mates.

Those results are all over the place. Taking a map from FUT is commendable, and KOI looked good against GIANTX. But if those results meant anything, KOI should've been able to deal with Gentle Mates, yet they failed to do so.

There is clearly some inconsistency in KOI's performances, which is nothing new. So the question really is whether we'll see the good KOI on Thursday or the bad version of KOI.

KOI Squad & Team News


No roster changes for KOI.

  • Bogdan "Sheydos" Naumov
  • Patryk "starxo" Kopczyński
  • Grzegorz "GRUBINHO" Ryczko
  • Kamil "kamo" Frąckowiak
  • Tobias "ShadoW" Flodström

Natus Vincere Form


Natus Vincere seem to be crumbling. They had a good run through VCT 2024: EMEA Stage 1, but have lost all three of their games in Stage 2, against Team Heretics (0-2), FUT Esports (0-2), and even GIANTX (0-2).

Those are not results you'd expect from a squad expected to be in the race for the VCT EMEA title. While NaVi are still in a fine spot, thanks to their strong run in Stage 1, they need to start winning or face elimination from the playoffs race.

In their defence, Natus Vincere had to face both FUT and Heretics, who are in excellent form and great teams. But that means very little after their loss to GIANTX, who NaVi should realistically crush.

Natus Vincere Squad & Team News


No recent roster changes for Natus Vincere.

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

Verdict

Natus Vincere are in terrible form, and their loss to GIANTX might suggest they aren't likely to do well against KOI either. On the other side, KOI have shown very little this season and are widely inconsistent with their performances, not to mention that they're outclassed by Natus Vincere.

Even though Natus Vincere should win, their form and concerning results make backing KOI a more reasonable choice. And while KOI likely don't have what it takes to win outright, NaVi look bad enough to let one map slip.
