NAVI vs Monte Preview and Predictions: Paris Major 2023 Legends Stage

The Round 4 NAVI vs Monte game is a decider Bo3 where one of the squads will move forward to the Champions Stage

This is the first-ever encounter between these Ukrainian rosters, as Monte mostly participated in B and C-tier events before their quick rise. Whoever wins this encounter will confirm their Legends Spot placement, while the losing team will have to fight in a Round 5 elimination match. And if you think this will be an easy victory for s1mple’s squad, you are underestimating their contenders.

If you want to know more about this matchup or enjoy CSGO betting, here are our predictions for the game.


With their legendary AWPer looking like his 2021 self in this Major, NAVI are determined to reach the next stage from this decider match. Their Round 3 game against Ninjas In Pyjamas resulted in a dominating victory for the Ukranians, and the s1mple and b1t duo continued their excellent performance. However, Monte won’t be the easiest opponent, and NAVI will need the best look from their roster to avoid a second loss in this Major.

NAVI vs Monte


With most of their achievements being in B and C-tier events, this Ukrainian squad had a quick rise in 2023 and has proven itself to be a formidable opponent in their first Major. Monte barely made it through the Challengers Stage, and most of us predicted them to get eliminated quickly from this part of the Major. However, they are doing incredible right now with big upsets against FURIA and Fnatic, and with such a pace, they will be a tough squad to defeat for NAVI.
