BIG vs ECSTATIC Predictions

BIG and ECSTATIC will clash on Friday, May 26, in the upper bracket quarterfinals at CCT Online Finals #1. It'll mark their second meeting of the week after ECSTATIC defeated BIG (2-0) at ESL Challenger Katowice 2023: European Qualifier on Monday.

Despite ECSTATIC's success against BIG on Monday, the Danish Counter-Strike: Global Offensive squad enters this match as 2.62 underdogs to take down the Germans, priced as 1.44 favourites. That might make sense since BIG have had higher highs this season, but their recent form isn't as good, so it's fair to doubt BIG's chances to win.

  • BIG placed top six at Intel Extreme Masters Rio 2023 in April
  • ECSTATIC won two events in May - ESEA Cash Cup: Europe - Spring 2023 #4 and ESL Challenger Katowice 2023: European Qualifier
  • BIG are expected to defeat ECSTATIC on Friday

Head to Head

ECSTATIC have met with BIG just once this season, on Monday, May 22, in the ESL Challenger Katowice 2023: European Qualifier, when the Danes won 2-0.

BIG Form

BIG enter the second round of CCT Online Finals #1 following a commanding 2-0 sweep of Corinthians in the tournament's opening game. With that win, BIG are on a run of five victories and two defeats since May 20, which includes losses against HOTU (0-2) and ECSTATIC (0-2).

That's not a terrible record, and it includes a couple of solid victories against Movistar Riders (2-0), Ninjas in Pyjamas (2-1), and GODSENT (2-0); however, it's hard to ignore BIG's defeat against ECSTATIC which happened just three days ago.

BIG admittedly, didn't play well on the day, but that doesn't change the fact that ECSTATIC were the better team. So why are BIG expected to get their revenge on Friday?

BIG Squad & Team News

BIG have not made any roster changes recently.

  • Johannes "tabseN" Wodarz
  • Josef "faveN" Baumann
  • Karim "Krimbo" Moussa
  • Nils "k1to" Gruhne
  • Marcel "hyped" Köhn


ECSTATIC are in excellent form ahead of their clash against BIG. Not only did the Danes sweep BIG on Monday, but they're also 11-1 since the turn of the month and on a nine-game winning streak.

Over those nine outings, ECSTATIC have produced a couple of iffy showings and have dropped a map against Infinite, AVT, HOTU, and POLET. Still, if we focus only on their last three outings, the Danes took care of business against GODSENT (2-1), BIG (2-0), and Movistar Riders (2-0), which are good results for ECSTATIC's standards.

But can ECSTATIC keep the momentum going and hand BIG another loss on Friday?

ECSTATIC Squad & Team News

ECSATIC haven't made any roster changes since March, when they signed Magnus "Nodios" Olsen.

  • Marcus "maNkz" Kjeldsen
  • Tobias "kraghen" Kragh Jensen
  • Jonas "Queenix" Dideriksen
  • Jason "salazar" Salazar
  • Magnus "Nodios" Olsen


On paper, BIG look like the better team, and they’ve had higher highs than ECSTATIC this season. However, their past showings hardly justify BIG's price as 1.44 favourites to defeat ECSTATIC.

Although there’s a world where BIG wake up and show us what they’re really capable of, I would prefer to be on the side of ECSTATIC to defeat BIG at the offered Counter-Strike: Global Offensive betting odds. Anything above even money on ECSTATIC is a solid bet.
