After an exciting day of opening matches, Natus Vincere (NAVI) and FaZe Clan reigned supreme in Group A. Now, it's time to determine which team will earn a spot directly in the semifinals of the BLAST Premier Spring Final 2024, and which team will start in the quarterfinals at the OVO Arena Wembley venue in London. 

To get to the Winners match in Group A, NAVI shut Astralis down with a 2-0, and FaZe Clan took out underdogs SAW with a 2-0 after a bit of a scare on the first map, which went into overtime.

NAVI's IGL, Aleksi "Aleksib" VirolainenIf said at the Spring Final that the match against FaZe Clan will be twice as tough, and after watching FaZe Clan's Helvijs "broky" Saukants get a 4k will dualies and narrowly missing a bomb defuse (0.39) seconds, I can see why Aleksib would say that.
