NAVI’s international project seems to be gaining some steam, with the team currently sporting a six-match win streak, including victories against the likes of G2 (twice), Complexity, and Virtus.pro.

A big part of NAVI’s recent success can be attributed to their Ukrainian duo of Ihor “w0nderful” Zhdanov and Valeriy “b1t” Vakhovskiy, with the two delivering the goods on the server more often than not.

It will be interesting to see if they can make the next step as a team and insert themselves into the title picture, along with powerhouses like Faze or Vitality.

Spirit

Spirit are in contention for being the most hyped team coming into the 2024 season. The expectations are huge, but the Russian-majority squad has all the talent on their roster to back them up.

The BB Dacha Champions are home to one of the biggest upcoming talents of the last couple of years – Danil “donk” Kryshkovets. The 17-year-old phenomenon already made his mark in Katowice, after being the highest-rated player at the Play-in stage.

The only thing Spirit lack is experience in tough games at the very top level, which could turn out to be problematic later in the competition.

Funnily enough, Thunderpick odds have NAVI and Spirit as equals coming into their Saturday matchup. No matter the result, it is bound to be a thrilling and must-see game between two exciting in-form squads.
