Match Prediction: NaVi - NiP | CS:GO

NAVI and Ninjas in Pajamas will meet again in the group stage of BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023, however, now they will play in the lower bracket of group C.

Last time, Born to Win got quite a confident victory, except for the failure at their peak. Now, NAVI must repeat the success and advance to the group's grand final so as not to tempt fate in the Play-In.

As for the Swedish team, I did not find any logic in the game. However, there are no questions about shooting for Ninjas in Pajamas, on what the team can give out a fight.

And yet here I would not look for intrigue, because in essence NAVI should close the series in their favor, and the Swedes should go to the Play-In stage.

Form NAVI

The eighth team in the world ranking showed a terrible game at BLAST Premier Fall Final 2022 and BLAST Premier World Final 2022, where they got one victory each and were eliminated in the quarterfinals.

As for the start at the group stage of BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023, here the Ukrainian team got an important victory over Ninjas in Pajamas, although they looked lost on the Mirage map.

However, they failed to cope with G2 "Born to Win", because NAVI actually outplayed it tactically, especially on the Nuke map. However, I have no idea that suddenly the team will stall again and manage to lose to the Swedes.

  • Defeat from Vitality with a score of 0:2.
  • Victory over Heroic with a score of 2:1.

At the same time, "Born to Win" has not yet played on Anubis, but also abandoned the Vertigo card.

Uniform Ninjas in Pajamas

The sixteenth team in the world ranking also failed at BLAST Premier Fall Final 2022, where it miraculously made it to the playoffs, but did not stay there for long.

As for the start at the group stage of BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023, here the Swedish team essentially lost to NAVI, showing glimpses of intelligent play only on Mirage.

Fortunately, on the eve of Ninjas in Pajamas, she was able to cope with BIG, although the game turned out to be quite equal to believe in the Swedes. In general, the team clearly does not pretend to jump above its head, and it's too early.

As part of the current season, the teams held one meeting - at the start of the group stage of BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023, NAVI won (2:1).

Prediction for the match NAVI — Ninjas in Pajamas

Looking back at the previous meeting, I don't even know what the Swedish team can build on. As you can see, NAVI played the Inferno map well, which Ninjas in Pajamas loves so much.

Does it make sense to take risks, given your in-game problems and the presence of Aleksib? In general, the Swedish team is in a difficult situation, in which only an opponent can help win.

However, I don't think that Ninjas in Pajamas is now at the stage to surprise. Therefore, in this case, I would recommend betting on the victory of the NAVI team.

At the moment, the majority of bookmakers unanimously see the team NaVi as the favorite of the game with average odds on a victory in the sum of 1.103. NiP chances to prevail are evaluated with average odds 10.347 by bookmakers.
