Match Prediction: Rare Atom - NaVi | CS:GO

Rare Atom and NAVI will play in the semi-finals of the lower group stage of ESL Pro League Season 17. The winner of this match will face someone from Team Spirit - Team Liquid to play for a place in the play-offs of the competition. Well, the loser will head to the Last Chance grid, where they will indeed get one last chance.

Quite frankly, it's time to put an end to this story, because the Chinese team is objectively weak. Yes, Rare Atom managed to beat Team Liquid, but that was just one isolated incident, which they proved the day before in their terrible game against ENCE.

In turn, Born to Win still can't find themselves with weak and failing cards. Good though NAVI managed to outplay Astralis yesterday, although on Inferno it was close enough, especially in the end.

However, it's hard to look for intrigue in a match like this because, you know, the Chinese. So here I would look out for a resounding victory from the NAVI team.

The fifth team in the world ranking played well at the recent IEM Katowice 2023 where they got to the semifinals. However, there Born to Win lost to Heroic, showing a weak game under pressure.

As for the start of the group stage of ESL Pro League Season 17, here NAVI managed to outclass everyone, somehow giving up the winning game against FORZE.

Thankfully, the Ukrainian team had managed to suffer a victory over Astralis the day before. I can't say that NAVI is coming back, but against the Chinese, the team has a good chance to stay in the bottom zone.

Forecast for Rare Atom vs NAVI

A very controversial meeting, which objectively should end on two cards. To be fair, the Chinese team gave the maximum, but in fact Rare Atom is weaker than many.

Yes, NAVI is in bad shape, but in such a format can the team lose to the Chinese?

There's not even an option to look at the cards here, as Rare Atom has racked up stats in their region, where they have beaten everyone in a row. In general, I do not see any intrigue in such a confrontation.

So in this case I'd recommend a 2-0 NAVI win.

RARE ATOM vs NAVI recommendation

They never played agians each other. Understandably, subjectively I highlight the Navi god, but objectively Rare Atom rarely lives up to the trust and simply floats.

However, the Major winner squad also has problems, who can now long be reminded of their defeat by Forze. However, Team Navi can come together in tough matches agains Astralis, and the upcoming one is one of them.

Therefore, based on the history of the teams and their past face-offs, I would recommend betting on +1.5 map on Rare Atom

At the moment, the majority of bookmakers unanimously see the team NaVi as the favorite of the game with average odds on a victory in the sum of 1.117. Rare Atom chances to prevail are evaluated with average odds 7.417 by bookmakers.
