NIP and Astralis are matched up against each other in the ESL Pro League Season 4 to be held on the 14th of September 2016 at 1900 CEST.
NIP who recently won the Starladder I League matches have been at the peak of their performance. However their win at I League was with a stand-in who performed admirably well; Maikelele. The Maikelele GetRight combo was too much for most of the teams to handle. This match would be back again with Pyth and probably their coach as well. NIP must have had a lot of rest as it was their biggest prize money win over the history of their team. The roster had close matches against Astralis and this match is on Dust2.
The last time these teams played on Dust2; Astralis were winning 11-4. They then choked to lose the match. However the 11-4 advantage does lead me to believe that they could have as easily won the match as NIP did in the end.
The Prediction : 60%-40% favoring NIP.
The Bet : Low on Astralis.
