As part of the LPL Spring 2023, a new gaming day starts. With the advent of Saturday, there will be a little more games, but already in the first match we will watch the match of the day.
In the face-to-face confrontation, Invictus Gaming and JD Gaming will face each other. The fight promises to be another test for both clubs.
IG will come into the fight with a 5-2 statistic. After a short stay on the first line of the standings, the team dropped by 3 lines and now takes 4th place with 5-2 statistics.
JDG Gaming breathe in the back of IG. The team is on the line below, but has one game in reserve and has a 4-2 statistic.
We figure out which of the teams will be stronger and improve their already good position in the LPL Spring 2023 regular season standings.
J.D. Gaming kit
Let's start the review of the match with an analysis of JD Gaming's game form. Them in this duel to play in the status of a favorite.
JDG is completely trusted by bookmakers. The team's chance of winning is estimated by a coefficient around 1.2.
Somehow the pre-match quotes look too discontinuous. You can agree with the best conditions of JDG before the start: the team has a serious roster with eminent players and shows quite high performance, but in the tournament it actually goes the same way as IG, even a little worse.
JD Gaming roster
As mentioned above, JDG has a very promising roster this season. It is immediately clear that when collecting it, they were guided by the principle “we take all the best”.

They took as a basis a quite successful roster of the past season, which reached the TOP-4 Worlds, and strengthened it with Ruler, who moved from Gen.G Esports. The formula will work until the top seeds of the playoffs, there is no doubt about it, but then we'll see.
JD Gaming Performance
In the first series of LPL Spring 2023, JD Gaming played against Bilibili Gaming. The updated composition of the ancient Chinese club managed to take the card from a formidable opponent, but they failed to win the series.
Next, JGD played with NiP. Here Ruler and company closed out their rivals with a score of 2-0 in the lightweight series.
In the third series, JDG played with AL. It was not difficult to beat the weakest team of the season: 2-0 in favor of JD Gaming.
Later, JD Gaming met with Royal Never Give Up. The 2022 Mid-Season Invitational champions were powerless against the onslaught of JD: 2-0 in favor of JDG and a double MVP for Knight.
In the fifth series, JD played against Weibo. Quite unexpectedly, JDG were weaker and lost to Weibo with a score of 1-2.

On supports, the usual for patch 13.1 Yuumi (4 games, 75% wins), Ashe (3 matches, 100% wins).
Let's move on to the analysis of the game form of Invictus Gaming. They got the role of an outsider.
According to preliminary indicators, Invictus Gaming has very meager chances of winning. The success of Invictus Gaming is estimated by a factor of around 4.
I repeat, as for me, such an assessment is not entirely correct. Invictus Gaming look decent in the new season and it is worth formulating conclusions based on what is happening directly at the LPL Spring 2023.
Invictus Gaming roster
A worthy debut in the long-term LPL Spring 2023 Invictus Gaming was guaranteed by the players of the roster. When assembling the roster, IG gave priority to young players with little experience under their belts.

However, it was decided to complete the graduates of IG.Youth neny and YSKM with South Korean legionnaires GIDEON and Dove. The first was a member of KT Rolster, and the second in turn represented SANDBOX and crossed paths with GIDEON in KT Rolster.
IG started the season with a solid victory against Anyone`s Legend. Although the first map lasted 46 minutes, Invictus Gaming were much more confident on the second map and beat their rivals in 25 minutes.
Next, IG met a more serious competitor. In the second series, Invictus Gaming played against Royal Never Give Up, who were eventually closed with 2-, in 54 minutes in total.
IG's handicap didn't end in the match against EDG either. The title Chinese team failed to cope with the onslaught of Invictus Gaming: 2-0 in favor of the latter.
With a score of 3-0, IG approached the game against ThunderTalk Gaming and, with a pre-match advantage, they lost. They gave the series not dry, they took the map, but Ziggs did not forgive in the position of the shooter.
After TT Gaming, there was LGD Gaming. One of the weakest teams of the run could not oppose anything to the overclocked IG, although it led the series into a deep late game on two maps.
The series against FunPlus Phoenix was much easier for Invictus Gaming. The battle of champion tags of 2018 and 2019, respectively, ended in the triumph of the former.
Before the match with JDG, we played against TES, another top team this season. The fight ended in a full-fledged bo3, and its result was not in favor of IG.

History of personal confrontations
Previously, the teams have not played each other in official matches of the 2023 season. This match will be the debut face-to-face confrontation between the teams.
This duel promises to be a very entertaining spectacle. Both teams show high performance in the new season and are ready to take high places in the standings with subsequent passage to the playoffs.
I cannot share the opinion of the bookmakers and fully believe in JDG. Naturally, Ruler and the company can and do know how to play in the League, but this season IG will put sticks in the wheel and they definitely have to claim one card.
Result: +1.5. on IG.
All bookmakers have agreed that JD Gaming is the favorite. This can be noticed because odds on them are 1.207. This number in the favor of Invictus Gaming amounts 4.608. Respectively, the last ones are the underdogs of the upcoming match.
