ECSTATIC vs paiN Preview and Predictions: ESL Challenger Katowice 2023

No team wants to be the first one to get knocked out of a tournament, but only the winner of this ECSTATIC vs paiN matchup will survive the day 

ESL Challenger Katowice might not be as prestigious as other CSGO tournaments held in the Polish city, but to those participating in it, it’s a great chance to collect a fat paycheck and some silverware. After the first round of matches, Danish side ECSTATIC will face off against Brazilian underachievers paiN Gaming, and given how evenly balanced the two teams are, it’s anyone’s game. If you’re planning to indulge in some CSGO betting, here’s our preview.


The Danes have had quite a few commendable results in recent times, including a 3rd-4th place finish at ESL Challenger Melbourne and a Grand Final run in CCT Online Finals #1, but they have just started their tournament with a worrisome loss to Russian side FORZE. Despite getting a solid 10 rounds on the defense on Overpass, they were unable to crack FORZE’s defenses more than twice, losing 16-12.

The Brazilians are still smarting after being smacked around by regional rivals 9z. They had a rough time on the CT-side on Nuke as they only put up 6 rounds, but they were much worse on the T-side as they only managed to score a solitary point for a 16-7 drubbing.
