Match Prediction: Top Esports - LNG Esports | LoL

Matches on March 7 should please fans of the competitive League of Legends. In the opening match of the day, Edward Gaming and Weibo Gaming will meet, and then Top Esports and LNG Esports will play.

Top teams, skill players, high stakes. Both teams are aiming for a high seeding in the playoffs after the group stage, as evidenced by the position of the teams in the standings.

LNG Esports are in second place in the LPL Spring 2023 standings before the start of the match. The team has 8 wins in 10 matches; won 17 cards and lost 6.

TOP Esports on the line below: the team also has 8 wins and 2 losses. On cards - 17-7.

All of the above speaks in favor of an early top battle. Let's see what happens from this match and which of the teams will be stronger in an important b3 match.

TOP Esports Uniform

We begin our review of the match with an analysis of Top Esports performance. In this match they will act as the favorite.

Bookmakers believe in the victory of TOP Esports, although they leave room for maneuver. The chance of success for TES is estimated at around 1.5.

For the Chinese scene, and even in the group stage, such quotes do not give confidence in the success of the team. What can we say, if TOP Esports are lagging behind in the tournament and are one step lower than their future counterpart.

TOP Esports roster

The pre-match advantage would not have been possible without a strengthened squad. The team entered the new season with a “heavyweight” roster.

TOP Esports Players

  • Qingtian
  • Tian
  • Rookie
  • Jackey Love
  • Mark

The performers of TES do not need separate presentations, and they have been heard and pleased with their game for more than a year. However, if we talk about their effectiveness within the LPL Spring 2023, support Mark and jungler Tian stand out noticeably.

TOP Esports performance

TOP Esports hold the third line of the tournament table with 8-2 in series and 17-7 in maps. For all matches, they lost only to the tops of the season.

TES beat Anyone`s Legend, Edward Gaming, Invictus Gaming, Rare Atom, Royal Never Give Up, Team WE, Ultra Prime and NiP. Only 3 series ended 2-1 (against EDG, Invictus Gaming and NiP).

Lost in two series: against JD Gaming and Weibo Gaming. The eternal enemy of TES, JDG won 2-0. and Weibo closed the series with a score of 2-1.

TOP Esports Champions

The most popular top lane picks are KSante (7 matches, 85% win rate) and Renekton (5 matches, 80% win rate). Next come Sion (3 games, 66% win rate) and Darius (2 matches, 100% win rate).

In the forest, the ubiquitous Sejuani (9 matches, 77% wins), Vi (4 matches, 75% wins), Maokai (4 games, 100% wins).

Jayce appears in mid most often (6 games, 100% wins). Next come Azir (4 matches, 75% win rate), Akali (3 matches, 66% win rate), Sylas (3 matches, 33% win rate).

TES has a standard set of shooters: Lucian (6 matches, 66% win rate), Varus (4 matches, 100% win rate), Sivir (3 games, 33% win rate). There are also Draven (3 games, 66% win rate) and Jhin (3 matches, 66% win rate).

The support pool is also banal: Nami (6 matches, 66% wins), Yuumi (4 matches, 75% wins), Nautilus (4 matches, 75% wins), Heimerdinger (4 games, 100% wins).

LNG Esports Uniform

Let's move on to the analysis of the game form of LNG Esports. They are in this match to play in the status of catching up.

The TOP-2 in the table does not help either. Bookmakers give LNG odds around 2.5 to win.

I repeat, for the modern Chinese League of Legends, such a figure is absolutely working. LNG has every chance to surpass its more eminent colleagues, but it will be difficult, that's a fact.

LNG Esports roster

Unlike TES, LNG Esports do not have elite players on the roster. Of course, they are good, otherwise they would not have taken 2nd place after 7 weeks of games, but in terms of “hype” they are not up to their colleagues. This is speaking in general terms.

LNG Esports Players

  • Zika
  • Tarzan
  • scope
  • LP
  • hang

There are names here too. So, for example, Tarzan and Scout can be noted, which have been showing class for several years. This season they do not fall out, and remain the most effective players on the team, but the Zika topper is losing.

LNG Esports performance

LNG has 8 wins and only 2 pockets. TES are ahead of the map in terms of taken/given.

They beat Bilibili Gaming, FPX, Oh My God, Rare Atom, Royal Never Give Up, Team WE, Thunder Talk Gaming and Weibo.

Lost two series: against EDG and against NiP at the beginning of the season. The last one ended on three maps, but EDG closed their counterparts with a score of 2-0.

LNG Champions

The most picked champion in the TOP was Renekton (6 matches, 83% of wins). In addition to him, Jax (2 matches, 100% wins) and Fiora (2 matches, 50% wins) were popular.

Sejuani (4 games, 50% wins), Maokai (3 matches, 100% wins), Zac (2 games, 1 win) were played in the forest.

Ryze dominated the center lane. Scout played 5 matches on it and won 4 games. Yone was selected twice more (1-1).

The situation is similar with arrows. Varus has appeared 8 times and has a 75% win rate. Jhin visited twice (50 wins).

Of the supports, Leon is quite unusual (5 matches, 4 wins). Much more standard Heim (2 games, 100% wins), Nautilus (2 matches, 50% wins).

History of personal confrontations

In the new season, the teams did not have a chance to play with each other. This match will be the debut face-to-face confrontation between the teams.

The outcome of the fight

In this game, I'm waiting for the hot League of Legends. The teams are clearly worthy of each other and will demonstrate a high-class game.

The most obvious outcome is the +2.5 total, but if you choose the winner, I would lean towards TES. They stand lanes better, they have a stronger duo-bot, and the position with the biggest gap is the TOP. Top lane Qingtian will be dominated by Zika, forcing Tarzan to play on the top flank, thus weakening the bot, where JackeyLove and Mark will gain a lead.

In general, the match promises to be interesting.

Result: TES win/total +2.5.

Now, the majority of bookmaker companies believe in Top Esports victory. Odds on them are equal to 1.492. According to bookmakers data, LNG Esports are the outsider and odds on their victory amounts 2.256.
