The current #1 team in the world will have to play without Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov in the opening round of ESL Pro League Season 15. The Russian was tested positive for Covid-19 at the airport on his way to Düsseldorf.
To replace him NAVI has flown in Daniil "Headtr1ck" Valitov. The NAVI Junior player will have to play from his hotel room, where he is currently in isolation after being called in at the last minute. 17-year-old Daniil "Headtr1ck" Valitov's last game in a competitive match was at the WePlay Academy League back in mid-January, so it will be interesting to see, what kind of shape the youngster is in.
NAVI will play the first match of Group D against the Polish team AGO at 12.30 (CET) today.
