Fnatic vs Ninjas In Pyjamas Preview and Predictions: BLAST.tv Paris Major 2023 Legends Stage

The Fnatic vs Ninjas in Pyjamas game is bringing an El Classico from CSGO's early days

This is not the first time we are seeing Fnatic and Ninjas go against each other. In fact, they had an encounter last month where Fnatic took the victory in a close 2-1 game. However, fans of NIP shouldn’t be discouraged, given their excellent run in the Challengers Stage. If you are excited about this Round 1 game and love CSGO betting, you wouldn’t want to miss out our predictions here- 


Waiting patiently in the Legends Stage, Fnatic should be confident of winning this game, considering their last month’s encounter against NIP. This European squad didn’t have to fight in the Challengers Stage due to a 3-0 clean run in the European RMR. While it’s true that Fnatic didn’t have to fight tough opponents in the RMRs, they have beaten Ninjas in Pyjamas twice before! Nonetheless, NIP are coming from a great run in the Challengers Stage, which may propel them into being a tough contender.

Ninjas In Pyjamas

The Ninjas have made it to the Legends Stage by showing an incredible performance in the previous stage of the Major and defeating Greyhound in their most recent Bo3. Throughout the Challengers Stage, Ninjas in Pyjamas were part of some of the most exciting matches against teams like OG and MOUZ, where NIP’s entire team looked great alongside REZ. In their last game against Grayhound, headtr1ck and k0nfig took charge of Mirage and Inferno, respectively, and brought a convincing victory to their name. Such an excellent pace may help them a lot in this game, but Fnatic will be one of their hardest opponents.
