NAVI vs Vitality Preview and Predictions: Gamers8 2023

NAVI vs Vitality will be a clash of titans in the Gamers8 Quarterfinals


New look Natus Vincere will cross paths with French powerhouse Vitality for the first time as they are set to do battle for a place in the Gamers8 quarterfinals. Both teams saw off Brazilian opponents to reach this stage and now they must continue their winning run to stay alive in the competition. CSGO betting odds favor Dan “apEX” Madesclaire and company, but NAVI will enter the fray riding high on confidence, having won three of the last four series they played. 

NAVI

Natus Vincere has secured their spot in the Gamers8 quarter-finals following a 2-1 series victory against FURIA. Despite a rocky start on Nuke and Mirage, the Ukrainian team showcased their dominance on Ancient to take the series away from Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo's men.

Vitality

Vitality came to the competition without their head-coach Danny “⁠zonic⁠” Sørensen, but it barely affected their performance against MIBR. Mathieu “⁠ZywOo⁠” Herbaut was back to his usual destructive mode as Vitality steamrolled MIBR in Anubis and Inferno to win the series with a game to spare.
