Natus Vincere Team Stats and Latest Results
Just like Complexity, Natus Vincere finished the group phase with a 3-2 record, but they had a harder path. Namely, they were 1-2 following the opening three matches, but bounced back with a pair of victories over MIBR and TeamOne, without dropping a single map along the way. The Russian team is still in 1st place in the CS:GO rankings, and they plan to stay that way. In order to achieve that plan, they must reach at least the Grand Final here. Natus Vincere won 13 of the last 18 games.

Complexity vs. Natus Vincere Betting Preview
I am going with Natus Vincere to win in this one, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they encounter some problems during the clash. That being said, Complexity has a chance to get a map, but I don’t expect more from them. In case you prefer betting on Over/Under, you can try with Over 2.5 maps. I am going with a safer option and NaVi to win.
The Pick: Natus Vincere to win (-169 @PINNACLE)
