Fnatic Team Analysis
Fnatic’s start of the ESL Pro League Season 11 was far from brilliant. The team lost against BIG and had to fight back to secure a place in the next stage. Three wins in a row against Complexity Gaming, North, and forZe were enough for a second chance in the upcoming decider, despite the defeat against Natus Vincere.
The overall impression is that Fnatic has improved since adding Golden to the roster, but lacks consistency. If the team has used the last 10 days to prepare properly and improve the cohesion even further, we could see a very dangerous version of Fnatic.
NiP Team Analysis
I’m not entirely sure what to make of the performance of Ninjas in Pijamas in the group stage of ESL Pro League Season 11, EU. The team crushed Astralis, Team Spirit, and GODSENT in the first three matches and looked unstoppable.
It was logical to expect that NiP will comfortably finish first, but then came the defeats versus Team Vitality and the punching bag of the group, ENCE.
The big question for the decider is which version of NiP shows up? The team that crushed Astralis and was cruising early on or the one that couldn’t beat ENCE?
Fnatic vs. NiP Prediction and Pick
- NiP to win; +144
I’m not sure why NiP collapsed in such fashion in the last two matches from the group stage. I believe that the easy start might’ve led to some complacency in the team and I hope we see the best version of Ninjas in Pijamas for the rest of the ESL Pro League Season 11.
In fact, my prediction is that NiP will rise to the occasion and show its better face against Fnatic. It should be a close encounter and the price of +144 for the underdog is the best pick for this match, in my opinion.
