BIG vs 9INE Preview and Predictions: BLAST Premier Spring European Showdown 2023

In the second Semifinal of BLAST Premier Spring European Showdown, we have BIG vs 9INE and another potential upset 

BIG vs 9INE will yield the second finalist for the BLAST Premier showdown. The online event has already seen an upset in the form of 9INE taking out Fnatic, who were favorites to participate in the Grand Final, and they’ll now be setting their sites on BIG. The Germans are known for capitulating in high-pressure situations, so this is a great chance for 9INE to make a statement. If you’re looking to do some CSGO betting or just want to know more about the match, this is the place for you.


BIG did well to come back and reverse-sweep Chinese side Rare Atom in the Quarterfinal, where they were creamed on Ancient 16-7 before winning Vertigo 16-9 and destroying their opponents 16-2 on Overpass. They’re the favorites against Nine despite the latter’s upset over Fnatic, but will have to make sure they bring their A-game.

Player To Watch



The all-Polish side surprised many to beat Fnatic the way they did in the first map — a triumphant 16-6 on Vertigo,— but what was even more impressive was how they came back from losing on Overpass to manage a win on Nuke. They’ve proven to have more legs than many would have assumed, and they could very well be the dark horses of this small event.
