NAVI vs G2 Preview and Predictions: BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2023

The NAVI vs G2 BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2023 matchup will see Natus Vincere’s new roster locking horns with G2 for the very first time


NAVI‘s loss to Heroic in the BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2023 Group B Grand Final delayed their confirmation for a spot at the BLAST Fall Finals in Copenhagen. Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev and company now must get through G2 in the Play-In Round 2 to stay alive in the race for a Royal Arena invite. The IEM Katowice 2023 champions, however, are the CSGO betting favorites to claim the spoils in this battle. 

NAVI

Natus Vincere handed Heroic their first map defeat of the tournament, but it wasn’t enough to keep the Danes from winning the series and grab a BLAST Fall Finals spot. The Ukrainian outfit restored parity with a narrow victory on Ancient, following their loss on Mirage. Heroic, however,claimed the series-decisive map on Nuke.

G2

G2 faced a tough challenge from Evil Geniuses but showed great resilience to secure wins on Inferno (16-7) and Mirage (19-15) while conceding a loss on Nuke (13-16) in the midst. NiKo led the charge for the German organization and made sure they lived to fight another day.
