Match Prediction: Bilibili Gaming - Gen.G | LoL

Welcome to EGamersWorld!

We continue our analysis of the main event of the spring in the competitive League of Legends with a betting contest between Bilibili Gaming and Gen.G. Gen.G and Bilili Gaming will play in the last chance grid semi-finals.

It's hard to overestimate the importance of the match, as the winner of the match advances to the top 3. In addition, we have here another round of clash LPL vs LCK and another opportunity to assess who is stronger.

Let's try to see which team will move up the Bracket Stage, and in the next round play against the loser of the pair T1 - JD Gaming in the Grand Final. The match promises to be a hot one, and here we go.

Gen.G's form

In the late stages of MSI 2023-level tournaments you want to see clear parity, but this match is not that case. Gen.G will play as favourites.

Bookmakers rate Gen.G's chance of victory at odds in the region of 1.4. For a boo5 in the semi-finals of the lower net Mid-Season Invitational 2023, this is quite a workable figure, which does not guarantee a hundred percent certainty of victory.

Challenging Gen.G's position before the Long Soppeg match is silly. Not only are they representatives of LCK, which is the first region in the world, their performance is better than that of Bilibili Gaming.

Gen.G went to the Mid-Season Invitational 2023 as LCK Spring 2023 champion, which is a hint of advantage. Moreover, Gen.G then fell in the bottom of the LCK Spring 2023 play-offs, returning to the Grand Final where they beat T1.

  • The line-up of Gen.G.: Doran, Peanut, Chovy, Peyz, Delight.

The squad is top-notch and that is another reason why Gen.G. is a contender for the crown in the first international tournament of the season 2023. The more so, of the entire roster, only Peanut the Woodsman has previously won the MSI.

However, it's still a long way to the championship, as Gen.G have fallen to the bottom of the grid. At first the LCK champions beat G2 Esports, but then in a hard-fought battle5 Ledge or T1.

In the lower net no problems have been encountered so far. Light 3-0 against C9 and here they are ready to face a more serious opponent.

The most popular Gen.G champions

  • The most popular champion on the top line is Gnar (10 games, 90% win). Jayce appeared 8 times and the win rate was 87%. Kenen played 4 times and won all games, KSante 4 times and 3 wins, Renekton 4 times and 2 wins.
  • In the Forest, Vi (11 games, 72% wins), Sejuani (10 games, 80% wins), Wukong (7 games, 85% wins), Le Sin (6 games, 83% wins) were picks.
  • On the centre line were Azir (13 games, 69% wins), Gragas (6 games, 100% wins), Kassadin (5 games, 100% wins), Viktor (4 games, 75% wins).
  • The most popular ADC is Lucian (12 games, 83% wins). Next are Varus (8 games, 87% wins), Caitlyn (5 games, 100% wins), Zeri (4 games, 75% wins).
  • Nami (13 games, 84% win rate). Ashe and Lux have 4 games and 4 wins each.

Gen.G remains the most effective team on defense. The team does an excellent job of playing second-string and against Bilibili Gaming this will play in favor of the Koreans.

Bilibili Gaming uniforms

We continue our analysis of the Gen.G vs Bilibili Gaming match with an analysis of Bilibili Gaming's form. In this match, they will play in the status of the outsider.

The odds of a win for the second team in China are estimated at odds in the region of 2.4. Again, a figure for the bo5 is a respectable one and hints at a potentially close match.

I'd very much like to see such a battle at the Mid-Season Invitational 2023, because so far all the matches ended in one-goal blowouts. However, there is still a chance of seeing something similar in this encounter as Bilibili Gaming are still not ready to take the lead.

Top-2 at LPL Spring 2023 is already a decent showing. With all the reshuffles in the line-up at the Long Converge of the 2023 season, BLG have come through Reshuffle decently and have strengthened considerably.

  • Bilibili Gaming: Bin, XUN, Yagao, Elk, ON.

Just like Gen.G, BLG has the Mid-Season Invitational 2023 champion of yesteryear, Bin. Last year, the Chinese top laner won MSI 2022 as part of Royal Never Give Up.

The player is now close to repeating the achievement. Bilibili Gaming made it through the Play-In MSI 2023 losing only a card before beating C9 (3-0) in the Bracket Stage and losing to JD Gaming (0-3).

MSI 2023 effortlessly shut out G2 Esports in the bottom set, but now they face a much bigger test.

Bilibili Gaming's most popular champions

  • Top Line: Renekton (7 games, 71% wins), KSante (7 games, 85% wins), Sion (4 games, 100% wins)
  • Jungle: Wukong (5 games, 100% wins)
  • Centre Line: Ahri (3 matches, 100% wins).
  • Gunner: Zeri (2 games, 100% wins), Aphelios (2 games, 100% wins).
  • Sappers: Lulu (2 games, 100% wins), Rakan (2 matches, 100% wins).

Let's see if BLG can get into a fast league against grands like Gen.G. Doubts remain, and they seem to be more than justified.

Gen.G - Bilibili Gaming's history of head-to-head encounters

The teams have not previously played in official matches. This match is the clubs' debut face-to-face encounter.

Match outcome

In this match I'm in favour of passing Gen.G. They seem like a more worthy opponent for any team that will drop to the bottom of the table after the T1 - JD Gaming match.

Bilibili Gaming have already achieved a great result and will build on that. They'll be able to squeeze the card out, though.

Bottom line: 3-1 in favour of Gen.G.

Bilibili Gaming are listed as the favorites of the match in the majority of bookmakers and odds on them are equal to 2.436. Gen.G, in turn, are the outsiders of the match. Odds on their victory are about 4.809.
