BLAST Premier World Final 2022: Natus Vincere vs Team Vitality predictions
NAVI are attending their third BLAST World Final - with the unique bragging right of having won every single World Final in the event's history. The Ukrainian superstars were crowned the champions of not only the 2021 BLAST World Final, but also won the BLAST Premier Global Final 2020. While the team had a disappointing showing at the Fall Finals in November, they earned their ticket to Abu Dhabi through their spectacular victory at the BLAST Premier: Spring Finals back in June.
Team Vitality meanwhile have had a solid year - earning their place at the World Final following their victory ESL Pro League Season 16. That was certainly their highlight the year so far, though they also performed well at the BLAST Premier Spring Finals, making it all the way to the grand finals before being defeated by none other than NAVI.
The odds favour NAVI to win here, at 1.65 vs Team Vitality's 2.10. Given NAVI's track record at BLAST World Finals they're absolutely one to watch this week - but Team Vitality are a strong team in their own right - and bound to be keen to repay NAVI for their defeat at the Spring Finals.
