Esports bookmakers have G2 Esports priced as 1.16 favourites to defeat Ninjas in Pyjamas, who enter the match as 4.50 underdogs. The price isn’t too shocking, considering G2 Esports defeated NiP a couple of days ago, and there’s little to suggest they can’t do it again.

  • G2 Esports swept Ninjas in Pyjamas (2-0) in the first round
  • Ninjas in Pyjamas defeated Complexity on Tuesday
  • NiP have won just two of their last six games

Head to Head


Ninjas in Pyjamas and G2 Esports met in the first round of BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024 Group C, when G2 Esports won with 13-7, 13-2.

G2 Esports Form


G2 Esports have had their moments in the 2023 Counter-Strike season, albeit they’ve won just two big events, the Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2023 and IEM Cologne 2023. Since the transition to Counter-Strike 2, their most notable achievement was reaching the semifinals of IEM Sydney 2023.

Since then, G2 Esports finished CCT Online Finals #5 and BLAST Premier: World Final 2023 in fifth-sixth place, which isn’t too exciting. Still, they entered BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024 as the main favourites to win Group C.

They kicked off the tournament with a clean 2-0 victory against Ninjas in Pyjamas but lost against Natus Vincere in the upper bracket final. Losing against Natus Vincere isn’t the end of the world, and it doesn’t prove that G2 are a weak team as much as it shows that NaVi have found traction to perform at the top level.

Ninjas in Pyjamas Form


Ninjas in Pyjamas will seek revenge against G2 Esports, who defeated them in the first round of BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024. It was a very one-sided match, ending with 7-13, 2-13 in favour of G2, who proved to be a class above NiP.

That defeat marked Ninjas in Pyjamas’ third over a six-game stretch; however, they managed to bounce back with a 2-0 sweep of their own against Complexity on Tuesday. Beating Complexity doesn’t prove that NiP are ready to take on G2 Esports, but they have looked much better in the second match of BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024.

Verdict

Unsurprisingly, G2 Esports are expected to defeat Ninjas in Pyjamas, who showed little resistance in their first meeting this week. G2 Esports were a superior team on Monday, and it’s tough to find a good reason to doubt their chances of defeating Ninjas in Pyjamas again.

But we have to note that NiP played very poorly in the first meeting, so it’s not entirely unlikely that they will perform better on Friday. That still likely won’t be enough for NiP to upset, but they should be competitive enough to take one map.
