NiP are obviously in a huge slump right now and people are speculating about lineup changes for a long time as well. if everything fails here and they exit the tournament before the playoffs, i highly doubt these 5 players will attend the next major as a unit again. the first change you probably noticed is that heaton will coach them on stage.
NiP didn’t have a single impressive bo3 win against t1 teams on lan for months now, while this fresh envy lineup looks really hot to say the least. they reached the major final in cologne and are definitely a favorite here. today they faced virtus.plow on cache, lost 0-15 on ct side, but ended up with 7 rounds in the end. even though virtus really outplayed them, envy is still heavily favoured on csgl vs NiP (basically shows what people think about this team right now).
also i wouldn’t think too much about this virtus match tbh; keep in mind virtus is on an other level than NiP right now. i don’t think this NiP lineup comes any further, if envy stays focused they have everything to take it relatively clean and easy.
cobble, cache, inferno, dust2 are very likely maps. envy will veto overpass, that’s what i know for sure.
2-1 envy, Good luck! (if the odds are even more ridiculous tomorrow, it’s okay to consider an icb on NiP)
My odds for this match: EnVyUs 65:35 NiP
