SLTV: Match for first place
Today our guys will meet fnatic in a group decider match. The teams will compete in bo3 format to advance to the playoff stage of SL i-League StarSeries Season 14 from first place in their group. The beginning of the match is scheduled for 18:00 CET.
Thanks to the victories over Vexed and PiTER, Natus Vincere have already guaranteed themselves a spot in playoffs, but the Swedes from fnatic have scored the same number of points. Now both of them want to get a better seeding in the final stage. The match must be quite interesting, especially considering recent reshuffle of fnatic roster, which surely inspired them to try some new combinations and strategies.
According to statistics, our team doesn’t perform at their best against fnatic, especially when it comes to bo1 format. However, our guys became a lot more motivated after reaching the final part at the major-tournament in Romania, and played quite decently in their last match against the Swedes. They were only two rounds away from the victory on de_dust2. The map pool of today’s match is still unknown, but without any doubts, Na`Vi has high chances to win this game!
SL i-League StarSeries Finals will be held in Minsk on 13–17 January. 8 teams will compete over the title of the champion and $ 200 000 prize money. Decider matches will be conducted at Minsk Arena. Earlier, our team have already managed to win StarLadder: StarSeries tournaments, and all Na`Vi fans believe that the guys will repeat their success!
