Natus Vincere vs Alternate Attax & Virtu

image

 

Two more matches to go and the group stage of the fifth season will be finished. Yesterday, our guys won their games against daT Team and NiP. At the moment, they place second in the group but only winning one of today's matches will guarantee them a right to play at LAN-finals.

 

So, at 19:00 CET Natus Vincere will fight against Alternate Attax, and at 20:00 CET they will play versus Virtus.pro. Both of our opponents have a chance to play for the LAN-ticket, but they need to fight really hard for every match point. As for the viewers, it will be quite interesting to witness the rivalry between ANGE1 and Markeloff who once played together. They both think that they know how the other one is playing, so the game will get even more exciting because of that. You will find a short commentary from Markeloff below...

 

Na`Vi.Markeloff:
 

"I've played against ANGE1 many times in the past, so there's nothing to worry about. Talking about the match itself, I can say that many people know how we play which is easy to understand because anyone can download and watch our demos. We will try to play our best because we really need these wins to go to the LAN-finals in Kiev"
