Vitality vs NIP Preview and Predictions: Paris Major 2023 European RMR B

It’s the battle of two unpredictable Western European giants in the Paris Major European RMR B with Vitality vs NIP

It’s no secret that Team Vitality and Ninjas in Pyjamas have both been struggling for a while, but the difference lies in what they’ve been struggling to do. Vitality have mostly been struggling to win trophies, with just one ESL Pro League title as far as big trophies go in the last year or so. On the other hand, NIP have been struggling to get out of the group stages of such events. Things can still get spicy in a Best of 1, though, so if you’re a CSGO betting fan, here’s our preview to put things into perspective.


The French-and-Danish superteam seemed to find the solution to their problems in ESL Pro League Season 17 Group Stage substitute Audric “JACKZ” Jug, but since dupreeh’s return, things haven’t gone as smoothly. Nevertheless, they were able to narrowly beat the latter’s old team Astralis in the first round, and should be able to take down NIP as well.

Player To Watch



The Swedish side seems to be long past its glory days, but it has looked slightly better lately, with the addition of a bunch of new recruits seeming to finally be paying off. In their Round 1 match, they took a convincing victory against Turkish side Eternal Fire, and seem poised to at least give Vitality a hard time.
