Valorant bookmakers have Natus Vincere priced as 1.42 favourites to defeat GIANTX, who enter the match as 2.70 underdogs with Stake. This price offer makes a lot of sense, mainly because GIANTX might be one of the weakest teams in the league.

  • Natus Vincere lost their first two games of Stage 2
  • GIANTX have managed a 1-1 record so far
  • Natus Vincere had a tough schedule

Head to Head


Natus Vincere and GIANTX have yet to meet this season.

Natus Vincere Form


Natus Vincere had quite an unfortunate run through VCT 2024: EMEA Stage 1, which they finished in fifth-sixth place after losing to Team Heretics in the playoffs. Still, Natus Vincere showed good things in the group stage, where they lost just one game out of five played.

With Natus Vincere, there's this sense that they've not yet reached their full potential, but based on their showings in the first week, NaVi still have a long way to go. 

Natus Vincere lost their first two games of VCT 2024: EMEA Stage 2 against Team Heretics and FUT Esports, both in two maps. While losing to two of the strongest Valorant esports teams from the region isn't worrying, NaVi didn't come even close to taking the series, proving they're not at an elite level.

No changes for Natus Vincere.

  • Andrey "Shao" Kiprsky

  • Ardis "ardiis" Svarenieks

GIANTX Form


GIANTX, like Natus Vincere have a lot to prove heading into this match. They're 2-5 across the two stages, struggling to show anything remarkable so far this season.

They won their first match of Stage 2 against Gentle Mates (2-1) but lost their second fixture against KOI (0-2) on Tuesday. The latter series ended with 5-13, 12-14, which is hardly inspiring.

GIANTX were one of the worst teams in Stage 1, and they've not looked any better over the last week, which explains why they're priced as such big underdogs for the upcoming match.

GIANTX Squad & Team News


No roster changes for GIANTX.

Verdict

Natus Vincere produced a few promising games in VCT 2024: EMEA Stage 1, yet their start to Stage 2 was nothing short of concerning. By losing to Team Heretics and FUT Esports, Natus Vincere proved they don't yet have what it takes to compete for the title, yet the stage is still very young, and there's plenty of time for Natus Vincere to find traction.

While NaVi's lacklustre showings might convince some to take a shot with GIANTX for this match, the difference in quality is big enough for that not to be the smartest choice.
