G2 Esports vs. BIG Prediction on January 20, 2023

Match info

On Friday, January 20, Day 2 of the group stage of the CS: GO BLAST Premier: Spring 2023 is on the schedule. G2 Esports and BIG will face each other in the Upper Bracket semi-final of Group C at 6:30 p.m. local time in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Meeting statistics

Given that the German team was completely outclassed and has been stuck on a losing streak for several months, their fans shouldn’t hold out much hope for sensations from them. The CS: GO bookies certainly don’t. In response, G2 made such a breakthrough at the close of the previous campaign that the team very unexpectedly won the BLAST Premier World Final 2022.

One shouldn’t jump to conclusions, though, as the “Samurai” have already displayed signs of not playing an entirely intelligent game. The Germans, on the other hand, didn’t come up with anything in the off-season, continuing with the previous five players. G2 are unquestionably more exciting in this series than BIG. In general, the German squad will come off as an outsider due to avoiding Dust 2 and two potential permobans. And we believe G2 will have no trouble winning to start the year on the right foot.

The current form of G2 Esports

The world’s second-ranked team was eliminated from the IEM Road to Rio 2022 Europe RMR A after playing a monster game and failing to advance to the major. Furthermore, the European squad didn’t excel in the BLAST Premier Fall Final 2022, where they were eliminated in the quarter-finals after only one laughable victory over Fluxo.

It seems that you might be wrong with G2. Despite no one foreseeing it, the team went on to win the BLAST Premier World Final 2022. Although it must be noted that not many rest on him in this situation, the “Samurai” haven’t even chosen a new coach.

G2 Esports’ latest results:

• Defeat from FaZe Clan with a score of 1-2.
• Victory over the Outsiders with a score of 2-0.
• Victory over Vitality with a score of 2-1.
• Victory over FaZe Clan with a score of 2:0.
• Victory over Team Liquid with a score of 2-0.

Their best map is Nuke with a 100% win rate, while they still reject playing on Overpass.

The current form of BIG

Nobody questioned that the failure of the 15th-ranked squad in the world at the end of the previous campaign will occur. If, however, the Germans couldn’t cope with the “legends” of the IEM Rio Major 2022, then everything after that was completely covered with darkness.

BIG finished second in the Elisa Masters Espoo 2022 despite the fact that they appeared before that game in the grand final, as the squad was struggling to survive in ESEA Advanced. The team, however, flew out of the CCT Central Europe Series 4 quarter-finals after a humiliating loss to HAVU. Though time flies in general, BIG don’t. Germans played in accordance with their moods and will keep playing in such a way.

BIG’s latest results:

• Victory over 500 with a score of 2-0.
• Victory over Sprout with a score of 2-1.
• Defeated from fnatic with a score of 0-2.
• Victory over Young Ninjas with a score of 2-0.
• Defeat from HAVU with a score of 1-2.

Their best map is Mirage with 57% of wins. If the German team had before rejected Ancient, we now also need to consider them doing the same with Anubis.

Head-to-head encounters

The teams met twice during the previous campaign:

• G2 took a 2-0 victory in the BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2022.
• G2 also achieved a 2-0 triumph in the ESL Pro League Season 16 standings.

However, the most recent meeting finished after two overtime sessions.

Match analytics

The German team was far ahead given the alterations to the pool. If we exclude Anubis, G2 has already defeated Vitality and controlled the battlefield under combat conditions. Additionally, BIG have a history of being an unpredictable squad that occasionally surprises but typically finishes as the runner-up or below that.

As for G2, this team restored our faith in them after they won the BLAST Premier World Final 2022. However, this is before the first setback, but their next opponent is quite appropriate at the start of the new campaign.

As a result, in this scenario, we advise placing a wager on total maps of over 2.5 with odds of 2.08 at Loot.bet.
