Valorant bookmakers have Natus Vincere priced as 1.44 favourites to defeat Team Vitality, who are priced as 2.62 underdogs. While Natus Vincere have looked better early into the season, the teams haven't played enough games to make any conclusions based on results only.

  • Both teams have made roster changes before the 2024 season
  • Natus Vincere have won two of the three games played this season
  • Team Vitality have won three of five games

Head to Head


Natus Vincere and Team Vitality have not yet met this season.

Team Vitality Form


The new-look Team Vitality team didn't live up to the hype in the VCT 2024 EMEA Kickoff tournament. They started the season relatively well and finished Group C in second place but didn't reach the playoffs after a 0-2 loss against Karmine Corp and a 2-0 victory against KOI in the Play-In stage.

However, while Vitality didn't manage to accomplish much, they've won three of five games played and their only two defeats came against Fnatic and Karmine Corp. On the other side, they didn't perform exceptionally well against other opponents, so it's more than fair to say that Vitality still have much to prove.

Natus Vincere Form


Natus Vincere started the season well, beating BBL Esports and Team Liquid in the VCT 2024: EMEA Kickoff group stage. However, everything came crashing down in the playoffs, where Natus Vincere lost to Team Heretics and missed the chance to qualify for the first international Valorant esports event of the season.

Despite their slip-up, this is still a very strong roster and arguably one of the most stacked teams in the region. Results-wise, it's tough to make any conclusions since Natus Vincere have played just three games. On a more positive note, this team has strong continuity, so unlike most other squads, they'll find traction sooner.

Verdict

The new Vitality squad has yet to find any momentum, and while their performances so far are far from great, this team has the potential to be good. However, we don't know when Vitality will start performing better, and until they do, it's tough to believe they'll do well against some of the region's best teams.

This is a winnable match for Team Vitality, but realistically, Natus Vincere should win. They have better players and stronger continuity. Still, while I believe Natus Vincere will come out on top, Team Vitality have enough talent to force a close series, so I'm taking over 2.5 maps.
