Featured Match: Fnatic vs Team NP

Well, the smart money was on Newbee to beat NP in yesterday’s first Group A matches at ESL One in Genting, and the smart money was the good money -- they’re now set to face off against Fnatic in the Group A Eliminations.

Both teams will be struggling to stay in the tournament, so who will have the edge? With NP being such relative newcomers, these two have never squared off before and will be doing so for the very first time live on stage at Genting.

Fnatic vs Team NP at ESL One Genting

Although Fnatic are a well-known name and NP are new on the scene, there’s more here than meets the eye. Fnatic have struggled to place anywhere higher than third at any recent major or premiere tournament, and they continued that underwhelming run with their immediate loss to VP yesterday. The time might just be right for an upset underdog victory, and NP might be the boys to do it. Stay tuned!
