NIP and Virtus Pro are matched up against each other in the ESL Pro League Match to be held on the 9th of March 2016 at 19:00 CET on Cache.
Virtus Pro have not been playing to their strengths recently and are 1-11 in the ESL League. As such, there is no possible chance for them to qualify further into the league as only the top four teams will get a chance to qualify into the LAN finals. Even Virtus Pro were not performing well during Katowice which should have been their home tournament. The support for the Polish team definitely was at a peak, however they just could not hit their shots. Virtus Pro will definitely not be taking this match seriously as they are already out of the tournament.
NIP on the other hand are a team that is right up there with the top four of the table. They are currently 7-1 and have a few best of two matches left against Astralis. NIP have been playing pretty decent recently. Their IEM katowice tournament was actually pretty good considering their score lines and the fact that they probably could have won two matches instead of losing them in a very close fashion. The new team look much better than the old team, however that might also be due to the fact that F0rest and Get_right are performing so incredibly well.
Overall NIP look suited to take this match. Every match from here on in the league is of utmost importance as their future opponents include Astralis and EnVyUs. NIP are not favored in those matches hence winning their favoured matches is the best strategy to make it through.
The Prediction : 70%-30% NIP
The Bet : Medium NIP
