Predictions

NAVI and Team Liquid are two renowned CS:GO teams that the whole world is excited to watch on the big stage. Although both teams had an unsatisfactory run in the recent CS:GO Majors, they will look to redeem themselves with a trophy in the ongoing BLAST Premier Fall Finals 2022.

Both teams have not made any changes to their roster after their previous tournament run, nor have they introduced any shift in their in-game roles. NAVI's most recent change involved the acquisition of sdy in June 2022, whereas Liquid's latest transaction was signing YEKINDAR in November.

NAVI has an incredible roster with stable options in all required positions. In the team's opening match of the Fall Finals, viewers witnessed noteworthy performances from players like s1mple, Perfecto and b1t.

Team Liquid, on the other hand, maintains a robust roster of mechanically talented players like EliGE, YEKINDAR and NAF, an incredible AWPer in the form of oSee, and a reputed IGL like nitr0.

Both Natus Vincere and Team Liquid have a balanced roster on paper and have a good track record in the tournament to back them up. However, considering the quality of performances these players have put on in the past, fans can certainly expect a vigorous display of skill from NAVI. For this very reason, Natus Vincere can be considered favorites to win this best-of-three series and move on to the semi-finals of the BLAST Premier Fall Final 2022.
