Ninjas in Pajamas

At first, the Ninjas in Pajamas team appears in this confrontation after losing the Group C consolidation final of BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023 against Natus Vincere. Before commenting on the defeat of the Swedes in the last round, it is worth remembering how they have been in their campaign so far. After starting with a failure in the first round against Natus Vincere, the team recovered in the competition after beating BIG by two maps to zero, having a new rematch against Na'Vi.


In their last match, they had another duel against Natus Vincere, but again they ended up being beaten in the series. On the first map, they were again outplayed in an inferno, losing by 10×16. In the second map, they managed to recover in the confrontation by easily winning the choice of their opponents by 16×7 in the mirage. Finally, in the third and decisive map, they didn't have the slightest chance in the overpass and ended up defeated by 16×5 in the aggregate of the times.



On the other hand, the Astralis team appears in this match after losing the Group A lower bracket final of BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023 against Heroic. Before commenting on the defeat of the Danes in the last round, it is worth remembering how they acted in their debut. Without winning any match, Denmark's most traditional CS:GO team started by facing Vitality in the first round. In the match, they had a balanced match on both maps but ended up losing both by 12×16 in overpass and 15×19 in vertigo, respectively.


In their last match, they faced their compatriots from Heroic again. In the series, they started by winning their first and only map in all the competition so far, triumphing in their choice 16×10 in inferno. However, they were annulled entirely in the last two maps, losing without offering the slightest risk in the mirage and vertigo, being defeated by double 4×16.


Which team do you think will come out as the winner?
