Vitality - Latest performance & results
Vitality announced shortly prior to the Pro League to kick Nivera out of the active lineup and not to continue with a 6-man roster after successful six months. Due to some recent problems within the team, the lineup change was the logical consequence.
However, at the ESL Pro League the top team of last year did not manage to convince yet. Victories in the matches with FaZe and Mousesports are contrasted by defeats in the duels with G2 and ENCE. Especially the match against the Finnish mixed team on the fourth matchday was a big setback.
The mood of the French team around star player ZywOo seems to be very tense at the moment. Also the emotions of apEX after today's defeat were to be seen strongly once again. The impulsive nature of the IGL will certainly not contribute to more calm in the team. Vitality is currently at a turning point, which the team has to overcome successfully in order to be among the world's top teams in 2021.
NiP - Latest performance & results
The Swedish top team also recently decided to make a lineup change. While veteran Lekr0 had to leave the team, NiP signed young-star ztr, who is not only individually on a high level, but also acts as IGL on Overpass and Nuke.
After a loss on the first matchday, three wins against ENCE, FaZe and mousesports followed for NiP. Yesterday's game against Mouz, however, was not necessarily convincing. With an enormous comeback on the last map Mirage the team nevertheless secured the victory.
The current situation is practically clear: the winner of this duel will advance to the playoffs. Only a scenario in which Vitality would have to win and ENCE loses to FaZe would ultimately come down to round difference. (Source: @StrikerHLTVorg - Twitter)
