A list of recent matches this team has played, green indicates a win and red a loss. Blue is a draw/cancelled
This match could be the grand final actually, both teams are extremely good and considered as worlds best, at least SK Gaming are, Na’Vi not so much as they’ve been struggling lately. Na’Vi lost a ton of maps against teams that are arguably weaker, teams like dignitas, Gamers2, FaZe and even Heroic. Na’Vi actually have been losing majority of their matches lately and they are looking quite bad in general now.
SK Gaming are ranked as #1 team in the world again, they finished second on ESL Pro League Finals where they lost to Cloud9 in the grand final, they played very well throughout the event, won their group with a 4-1 score with a single loss against NiP, and four wins against FaZe, Cloud9, dignitas and NRG, then beat NiP 2-1 in playoffs and lost 1-2 against Cloud9. SK Gaming didn’t look that great online, but they are a very strong lan team and always perform well on lan events.
SK Gaming should be favored here, but everything will come down to the map, I’m quite curious which team will ban cache as it’s always the first ban of both teams, none of them play on it. I’d say it would look like this:
SK Gaming -dust2
SK Gaming -mirage
SK Gaming would pick either train or overpass, hard to tell which team would be better for them, I would go for train as they are probably the best train team in the world, while Na’Vi may be the best on overpass, if that’s the case I’d stick to my initial plan which is a small bet SK Gaming.
My odds for this match: Na’Vi 45:55 SK Gaming
So the map is Train and honestly this is the best map for these 2 to go off on. They are both really strong on it and this is going to be another classic game. Looking at both teams results on this map, they are really strong. Navi have won the majority of their games, but had a few shaky ones against HR and fnatic. SK have played the map 21 times since they joined SK, and have won it 20 times out of these. That is really insane and to me they are the best train side in the world. The way they play it is perfect and Navi will need to be on point. As always, pistols will decide the game but if I had to pick one side, it would be SK.
My odds for this match: Na’Vi 50:50 SK Gaming
