Prediction for the match NAVI vs Heroic: DreamHack Masters 2021

Predict for the semifinals with Natus Vincere and Heroic as part of DreamHack Masters Spring 2021. It's hard to imagine how NAVI will be able to win here.

Natus Vincere - yesterday they outplayed FURIA with a score of 2:1 on maps. The Brazilians caused a lot of problems on Inferno, but they didn't have much of a chance on Nuke and Mirage. Regarding Nuke, I wonder if they'll take him from Heroic. NAVI likes to start in attack, and bring the game to its logical conclusion in defense. I would like to note the unsuccessful defense on Inferno, which Heroic should focus on. NAVI bans: Vertigo and Train.

Match prediction: NAVI vs Heroic in semifinal DreamHack Masters Spring 2021

Both commands are very convenient for each other, since the map pool is very similar. The teams ban Vertigo and Train, the main question is whether Heroic will take against NAVI - Inferno or will they be confident in their Nuke.

Heroic is much stronger than NAVI, a lot will be decided by the individual form of the players and micro-moments. Bookmakers give 1.71 to win for Heroic and 2.06 for Natus Vincere. We suggest you believe in the guys from Heroic, the odds are nice!

Prediction: Heroic will beat NAVI in the semifinals of DreamHack Masters Spring 2021 - odds 1.71
