Ninjas in Pajamas player Fredrik REZ Sterner commented on the victory over Natus Vincere at ESL One Cologne 2020 Online CS: GO. In a post-match interview, he noted that his team managed to surprise the opponent.
REZ also stated that NiP did not expect NAVI to choose Train. According to the Swedish player, his team performs well on this map.
“In fact, we didn’t expect Natus Vincere to choose Train at all. We play pretty well on this map and the opponents knew about it. Therefore, we were surprised when we saw this peak. We played exactly the same as in all training sessions – it worked. “
Sterner believes that in this match Natus Vincere were not ready to face NiP in their current form.
“I don’t think it’s about NAVI’s game. I would say that we greatly surprised them in many ways. We played with them several times, but they have never seen such Ninjas in Pajamas. “
Ninjas in Pajamas defeated Natus Vincere with a score of 2: 0 – on Train, the CIS team took only three rounds. The team of Alexander s1mple Kostylev left the competition, and the Swedish team made it to the playoffs.
