Match Preview

Things are heating up at the League of Legends World Championship 2019 and tomorrow should be no different. The day kicks off with this matchup, RNG vs SKT. This well undoubtably set the pace for the rest of the matches tomorrow.

RNG

With their only loss of the tournament so far coming against SKT, they will be hoping to set things straight. A win here could help them a tonne when it comes to seeding. If RNG pulls off this win and both teams win their remaining games, this will lead to a tiebreaker. So far both Group A and B have been decided by tiebreakers and the trend could continue.

RNG has looked good so far and is typically a team you can expect to make a deep run at any tournament. They had an early exit last year in comparison to their typical standards. They will come out blazing in this match to increase their hopes of securing 1st seed and an “easier” quarter-final match.

SKT

After missing Worlds last year and Faker’s career being called into question, things have swiftly flipped. They made the decision to rebuild the roster but keep the core elements. This has been a great success for them on a regional level and they aim to take it one step further.

They’re the only team left in the tournament that could potentially finish groups unbeaten. Although this will be tough to achieve, we cannot rule out the possibility. SKT has looked strong in every game so far at Worlds. Also, Faker appears to be back performing at his peak level which is scary.

Prediction

We have a really tight game on our hands here but SKT will come out on top and keep their unbeaten dream alive. You can get 1.60 odds on an SKT to win.
