ESL Pro League S5: against Fnatic
On March 16th we will play another dual Bo1 in the European qualifiers for ESL Pro League S5. Only the top six teams will qualify, and so far Natus Vincere G2A has earned a respectable spot in the top 5, with a 4-2 record and 12 points - only a few points separate us from the upper teams.
Our next enemy will be Fnatic, that we will face at 19:00 and 20:10 CET. The maps selected as the battleground for this clash are de_train and de_mirage. We didn’t play a single time against Fnatic in 2017, and in 2016 there is only a total of seven games on the records. Our last games were at ELEAGUE Season 1, where they won on de_train and de_cbble - since then both teams have reworked their roster, so the results for the next matches are unpredictable.
Currently, Fnatic holds the 10th place in the ladder, with a 3-2 score and 9 points. Natus Vincere G2A possesses an advantage, but the league has only started recently, so anything could happen in the following months.
Natus Vincere's coach Andrey "Andi" Prohorov has commented on the upcoming match:
"Playing against fnatic is always hard, as it's a team with tremendous experience, due level of individual preparation, and a good surprise factor. Nonetheless, we feel comfortable on both maps which we are to play, and we are ready to fight for 6 points".
