Valorant bookmakers have Natus Vincere priced as 1.33 favourites to defeat Team Liquid, who are priced as 3.25 underdogs. At the offered price, Team Liquid are given just a 30.8% implied probability of winning the series, which is a low number, but it just might be a fair one.

  • Team Liquid defeated KOI but lost to FUT Esports in Week 1
  • Natus Vincere have played just one game this stage, against Team Vitality
  • Natus Vincere already defeated Team Liquid 

Head to Head


Natus Vincere and Team Liquid last met during VCT 2024 EMEA Kickoff when Natus Vincere won.

Team Liquid Form


Team Liquid haven't looked particularly good this season. After a major roster overhaul, Liquid entered the 2024 Valorant esports season ready to make some noise, and while they got off to a strong start, with a 2-0 victory against KOI, Team Liquid haven't show much since.

Liquid ended the VCT2 204 EMEA Kickoff in seventh-ninth place after suffering two losses against Natus Vincere and KOI. Even though they got their revenge against KOI last week, Liquid returned to their old ways with a 0-2 loss against FUT Esports.

Over the five games played this season, Team Liquid have won just two, and both victories came against KOI, who are not that strong. On the other side, Liquid already got swept by Natus Vincere and FUT Esports, which makes it difficult to justify their chances to upset Natus Vincere on Thursday.

Natus Vincere Form


Natus Vincere brought back the ex-FunPlus Phoenix roster, which entered the 2024 VCT season with high expectations. Unfortunately, Natus Vincere's run through the VCT 2024 EMEA Kickoff didn't end as expected.

The international Valorant roster won Group B at VCT 2024 EMEA Kickoff with wins against Team Liquid and BBL Esports. But then lost against Team Heretics in the playoffs. This isn't as bad as it may seem since Team Heretics are very strong.

Natus Vincere got back on track in the first round of VCT 2024 EMEA Stage 1 with a convincing 2-0 victory against Team Vitality, who they beat with 13-9 on Bind and 13-4 on Lotus. Since Vitality aren't exactly strong, that victory might not prove much. However, after such a dominant display, it's fair to show Natus Vincere some respect.

Verdict

Team Liquid have not performed well over the last two months. They have only beaten KOI, which is hardly worth praising, especially since Liquid also lost to KOI once. Natus Vincere, on the other side, have managed much more impressive performances against teams who are arguably stronger than Liquid.

We're early into the season, and the sample size of games on which we evaluate teams is still very small. However, Natus Vincere are clearly the superior team.
