League of Legends bookmakers have Ninjas in Pyjamas priced as 1.20 favourites to defeat Royal Never Give Up, who enter the match as 4.33 underdogs. While this is a huge price to pay on the favourites, RNG haven't looked amazing this split.

  • Ninjas in Pyjamas are 8-4
  • Royal Never Give Up have won just four series this split
  • RNG's mid and late game is very bad

Head to Head


Royal Never Give Up and Ninjas in Pyjamas have yet to meet this season.

Ninjas in Pyjamas Form


Ninjas in Pyjamas enter this match as heavy favourites, which makes sense. Even though they're not one of the elite teams, Ninjas in Pyjamas have done enough to sit in the upper part of the LPL 2024 Spring table with an 8-4 record.

Over their last four series, Ninjas in Pyjamas have beaten ThuderTalk Gaming but lost against FunPlus Phoenix, Anyone's Legend, and Weibo Gaming. This is concerning, and even though most of their recent opponents are stronger than Royal Never Give Up, Ninjas in Pyjamas also lost to Anyone's Legend.

Ninjas in Pyjamas Squad & Team News


Ninjas in Pyjamas have not announced any roster changes.

  • Wang "Hery" He-Yong – top lane
  • Kim "Croco" Dong-beom – jungle
  • Cui "Shanks" Xiao-Jun – mid lane
  • Wang "Hope" Jie – ADC
  • Kim "Kael" Jin-hong – support

Royal Never Give Up Form


Royal Never Give Up picked up their fourth victory of the season last week when they swept Oh My God, adding to their 2-1 victory against Anyone's Legend on Wednesday. With those wins, Royal Never Give Up are 4-9, which is far from perfect, but they've shown some improvement.

The biggest issue with Royal Never Give Up this split has been their atrocious mid and late-game macro. Their early game isn't that bad, but even when Royal Never Give Up get ahead, they often don't know what to do with their advantages.

They've looked somewhat better in that aspect in their last two outings, but it remains to be seen whether Royal Never Give Up will manage to translate that against a tougher opponent.

Royal Never Give Up Squad & Team News


No changes for Royal Never Give Up.

  • Yoon "HOYA" Yong-ho – top lane
  • Yang "Beichuan" Ling – jungle
  • Son "ucal" Woo-hyeon – mid lane
  • Li "1xn" Xiu-Nan – ADC
  • Zhang "QiuQiu" Ming – support

Verdict

Royal Never Give Up have been improving lately, but beating Oh My God and Anyone's Legend doesn't prove much nor does it guarantee that Royal Never Give Up can deliver against Ninjas in Pyjamas. On the other side, Ninjas in Pyjamas have not impressed with their recent outings so you have to start asking yourself whether they deserve to be priced as 1.20 favourites.

Ninjas in Pyjamas have been trending in the opposite direction of Royal Never Give Up since their strong start to the split. Royal Never Give Up are playing the best they've played so far this season, and while this still doesn't make them a good team, I'm ready to take a swing with the underdogs to steal a map.
