  • Natus Vincere are in very bad shape
  • Gentle Mates have managed just one win this stage
  • A win will secure NaVi a spot in the playoffs

Head to Head


Natus Vincere and Gentle Mates have yet to meet this season.

Natus Vincere Form


Natus Vincere hold a 4-5 combined record, which puts them in a fine spot. But they enter this match in abysmal form.

Natus Vincere have not won a single game in VCT 2024: EMEA Stage 2 and all four of their losses so far all ended in 0-2 sweeps. That includes defeats against weaker Valorant esports teams in GIANTX and KOI, who humiliated Natus Vincere with 13-10, 13-6 last week.

This team still has talented players for which they deserve some respect. But their past showings are as bad as they can get and suggest that NaVi are more than capable of losing this game.

Natus Vincere Squad & Team News


No roster changes for Natus Vincere.

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

Gentle Mates Form


Gentle Mates are 3-6 and need this win to have a chance of qualifying for the playoffs. But they've not performed very well recently.

Over the four games played, Gentle Mates have managed just one win against KOI (2-0) in Week 2. But they also won a map against Team Heretics (1-2) last week and nearly defeated GIANTX in the first week of the regular season.

This doesn't prove that Gentle Mates are a good team. But they've still shown more than Natus Vincere.

Gentle Mates Squad & Team News


No announced changes for Gentle Mates.

  • Beyazıt "beyAz" Körpe
  • Nathan "nataNk" Bocqueho
  • Jonathan "TakaS" Paupard
  • Wailers "Wailers" Locart
  • Thomas "kAdavra" Johner

Verdict

Natus Vincere are the better team quality-wise, which might explain the current betting odds. But they're in abysmal shape and as it seems, despite all the talent, they don't have a player who would dig them out of this hole.

Seeing Natus Vincere lose to KOI last week is enough to believe they can lose to Gentle Mates. And at 2.30, Gentle Mates are a very easy choice.

This isn't a bet on Gentle Mates but a bet against Natus Vincere.
