Ninjas in Pyjamas (1-0) vs. Heroic (1-0)

Saturday features the winner's matches across the board in cs_summit6 opening in Europe with NiP and Heroic looking to secure 2-0 starts. Both sides showed good form Day 1 with hampus and REZ from NiP as well as stavn and TeSeS from Heroic putting in indomitable performances. Overall NiP come into the match as favorites, and will look to control the map veto with their deep map pool. NiP will ban Dust2, while Heroic ban Overpass, NiP's traditional first pick. Past that, Heroic are going to pick their Nuke where the Danish side is on an impressive seven-map winning streak, while NiP are likely to take Vertigo, a map they have a 78 percent win rate on. Overall the veto is likely to end on a deciders of Mirage or Train, two maps that both teams have nearly identical win rates on, and very similar pick rates. The Swedish side have been in excellent form since adding hampus, and if they can shut down stavn then look for NiP to secure their 2-0 start in cs_summit6.

Prediction: 2-1 Ninjas in Pyjamas

NiP Players to Target: hampus ($7,800 Captain, $5,200 Flex), nawwk ($11,400 Captain, $7,600 Flex)
