Team Secret and Natus Vincere will play in the quarterfinals of the Omega bracket at VALORANT Champions Tour 2023: LOCK//IN São Paulo. Both teams had a very confident start in the championship. But if it was still possible to expect victory from the "Born to Win", then the Filipinos greatly surprised with their victory over Team Liquid.
However, Team Secret will be much more difficult in this match, as Natus Vincere plays much more stable and can adapt to changing rules.
In general, the Philippine team is already doing well, and here they can definitely claim the card. However, in terms of the winner, I would take a closer look at the "Born to Win", which in recent months have really gained their condition.
