NAVI vs NIP Preview and Predictions: Paris Major 2023 Legends Stage

NAVI vs NIP sees both teams try to get the upper hand after going 1-1 on the first day of the Legends Stage of Paris Major 2023

Some teams, despite having a long history within the game they play, never really become rivals as they simply don’t have much of an overlap between their individual eras of dominance. Natus Vincere have always been a strong team, but their rise to true prominence only occurred in the post-pandemic era, once Ninjas in Pyjamas’ star had fallen. Nevertheless, both are on equal footing at this point in time, so this should be a cracker of a match. If you’re into CSGO betting, here’s all you need to know about it.


The Ukrainian giants aren’t looking so tall in the Legends Stage. While they were able to beat GamerLegion comfortably, Team Liquid smashed them, picking up 14 rounds on the T-side to all but ensure a win. NAVI put up a bit of a fight on the defense, but it wasn’t enough to avoid a 16-8 loss.

The Swedes were beaten convincingly by their regional rivals Fnatic, but they bounced back strongly by thrashing Brazilian giants FURIA Esports 16-8 on Nuke, where they followed up a decent T-side with a total lockdown on the defense to secure the win.
