gla1ve: Both MOUZ and Astralis know that we are able to beat NAVI in IEM Cologne 2022 semifinal

Astralis' in-game leader Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander believes that the winner of the IEM Cologne 2022 quarterfinal between his team and MOUZ has a chance for success in the semifinal against NAVI. The Dane spoke about it in an interview with the organizers of the prestigious tournament.

I think NAVI has really good individuals right now, so many sick players. Even electroNic as an in-game leader is able to perform in a really high level. In that sense, I think they're a really scary team to play in the semifinals for both of us. But if you play really good yourself, you are able to beat them. I think both MOUZ and us know that.

gla1ve cited the experience of playing at LAN tournaments as the key advantage of Astralis over MOUZ in the IEM Cologne 2022 quarterfinal.

I see us as a slight favorite. I do, to be honest. I think we have been playing good at this tournament. I think MOUZ has been playing good as well, but in an arena, I would say we are slightly favorites. <...> We are good at prepping, so of course, I think it will help us. But I don't think we have a bigger advantage than these guys have.

The quarterfinal confrontation at IEM Cologne 2022 between Astralis and MOUZ will take place today, July 15, at 16:30 MSK.
