NRG vs Na'Vi predictions
NRG have been nothing short of heroic in this Berlin Major while Na'Vi have disappointed fans. This is a subjective approach to a match as each match has its own truth but dynamics are definitely in favor of NRG in this match-up.
Bookies are still hesitant to give them full credit and Na'vi's experience at such level could help them stem the enthusiastic NRG coming out this team at the moment. Game on!
