As part of the LPL Spring 2023, the fights for reaching the playoffs of the spring split of the title Chinese division continue. Rare Atom and Bilibili Gaming will play in the next confrontation for 5 weeks of games.
Both teams are in the top 10. Both clubs are far from being able to gain a foothold there and, as a result, go to the main stage of the championship. However, a victory in a face-to-face confrontation will be most welcome.

Bilibili Gaming are two steps down. They have 3 wins and 3 losses.
