NIP and Dignities are matched up against each other in the Group stage of ESL on the 17th of February 2016 at 21:00 CET on the Train map.
NIP have not been very active recently. They had just a few matches in 2016. These matches have been pretty bad for them and have not been convincing wins neither did they show any promise. The map for this match is Train. NIP have been moderate on Train and they have not shown any results with the new lineup. With the new lineup, even on their normal maps (such as Dust2, Cache etc) they were unable to perform to the best of their abilities. Pyth definitely is a downgrade for the team from Allu and he is taking his own time to adjust.
Dignitas on the other hand have been together for a long time. They have had several matches on Train and other maps. Their performance has been pretty good so far. However something to consider for this match is that Dignitas traditionally have always played badly against NIP. It has nothing to do with their current form but just a mental setup between the teams. Granted the Dignitas roster has changed drastically, the core of the team remains the same. The odds are decent in this match.
The Prediction : 70%-30% NIP
The Bet : Low on NIP
