The quarterfinals of FACEIT Major will see the battle ua NAVI.GG.BET — de BIG. The natch is scheduled to start at 16:15 CEST and will be in best of 3 format.

The German team had a long run before this meeting. So, the guys started their run a stage earlier («New Challengers») and finished it on 6th-8th place, taking down dk OpTic Gaming (2:0) in the decisive fight. As for «New Legends»,  de BIG played a lot better compared to the preliminary stage! The only loss happened during the game against us compLexity (8:16 — Nuke), while they took down eu FaZe Clan (16:5 — Dust2), cn TyLoo (16:7 — Train) and eu HellRaisers (16:9 — Train).

The last time ua Natus Vincere and de BIG encountered each other was during the finals of ESL One Cologne 2018, and then our team took the victory (3:1). This year, the teams have also faced each other at ELEAGUE Boston Major, with ua NAVI taking an almost uncontested win (16:1 — Inferno).

Talking about the maps for the coming match, the teams are likely to remove Cache and Mirage. de BIG is likely to take Dust2, while ua NAVI — Overpass. The third map is likely to be Train, as the teams, most likely, will get rid of Inferno and Nuke. We believe that the Born to Win had time to study the opponent and will make it to the FACEIT Major semifinals! #gonavi
