Counter-Strike betting sites have Eternal Fire priced as 1.44 favourites to defeat Ninjas in Pyjamas, who enter the match as 2.62 underdogs. Considering what Eternal Fire showed at Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2024, this makes a lot of sense, but it remains to be seen whether the Turkish squad will manage to translate that to the RMRs.

  • Eternal Fire went 3-2 at IEM Katowice 2024
  • Ninjas in Pyjamas are 1-4 across their last five
  • NiP have been struggling for a while

Eternal Fire Form


Eternal Fire had a solid run through the 2023 season. Even though they’ve not won a single big event, they made the quarterfinals at ESL Pro League Season 18 and placed second at PARI, Please and ESL Challenger at DreamHack Winter 2023. This, while nothing exceptional, is very impressive for their standards.

The Turkish Counter-Strike team carried over the momentum to 2024 and claimed another silver medal at PGL Major Copenhagen 2024: European Qualifier B before producing a very impressive run at Intel Extreme Masters Katowice 2024.

Eternal Fire ended IEM Katowice 2024 in ninth-12th place, but they beat BetBoom Team, Rebels, and Team Falcons. They were ultimately eliminated by Natus Vincere and FaZe Clan but still won a map in both series and, with that left a strong statement.

Eternal Fire still don’t belong in the group of the world’s best CS teams, but they have proven that they can be competitive at the top level.

Ninjas in Pyjamas Form


Ninjas in Pyjamas had their moments early into 2023 but haven’t looked great in the second half of the year. They’ve not won or come close to winning a single tournament, and their best placement was top-six at the CS Asia Championships 2023.

Since the turn of the year, Ninjas in Pyjamas suffered early exits from Intel Extreme Masters Chengdu 2024: European Open Qualifier #1 and #2. They also attended BLAST Premier: Spring Groups 2024 but showed very little, with two 0-2 losses against G2 Esports and one 2-0 sweep of Complexity.

It’s unclear what’s going on with Ninjas in Pyjamas, but they just can’t get any traction. Still, NiP have a decent roster, so it’s only a matter of time before they start producing better results.

Verdict

It’s very tough to trust Ninjas in Pyjamas to beat Eternal Fire or any other team attending the EU RMR A due to their abysmal form which stretches over the last few months. However, this is still a decent roster with enough talent to do well.

Eternal Fire looked solid earlier this month, but before that, they’ve not produced much, so unless you believe EF are now a great team, this should be a competitive series. Best-of-ones are usually much closer than expected, so I prefer to be on the side of NiP with a 3-round advantage.
