Match Prediction: G2 Esports - Bilibili Gaming | LoL

Welcome to EGamersWorld.

In anticipation of Long Conpeg's second round of last chance net games, we've prepared a betting tip on the G2 Esports vs Bilibili Gaming match. The match, like everything in this stage of the tournament, is critical for both clubs.

You don't have to go far: the winner stays, the losers leave the tournament. It's a simple truth of last-ditch netting, and The International will be all the more exciting to watch for another East-West clash, but the first LEC and LPL clash in 2023.

Let's find out who will be the stronger of the two in this match and move up the grid, and who will have to go on to prepare for the long summer season in the regional league.

Let's begin.

Review of the match BLG - G2 Esports will begin with a breakdown of the playing conditions of the former. In this match, Bilibili Gaming will play in the status of the favourite, as indicated by the bookmakers.

The odds of Bilibili Gaming winning are estimated at around 1.4. Such a state of affairs can easily be explained by the general level of Bilibili Gaming's play, but the easiest thing to do is the banal formula East > West.

In the professional League of Legends, the rule of superiority of teams from Asia works with precision and MSI 2023 itself is proof of that. We have an LPL representative here against the LEC, so conclusions are inescapable.

That said, Bilibili Gaming is not just an LPL resident, but a top-2 season. This is serious considering how big and qualitative a leap the team has made.

Bilibili Gaming was not widely expected to be in the top 2 of the LPL Spring 2023, but they made it there, making it to the Grand Final with taste: along the way, BLG defeated virtually every top player in the region, namely Royal Never Give Up, Weibo Gaming, Oh My God and EDward Gaming. They gave battle to the champions from JD Gaming as well, but a good game in the upper grid semi-finals wasn't enough to make them champions.

  • Bilibili Gaming line-up: Bin, XUN, Yagao, Elk, ON.

As China's top 2, BLG were on their way to MSI 2023 as a top 4 contender at least. So far and it looks like they will close in on the top four.

At the MSI 2023 Play-In, Bilibili Gaming made the only mistake against Golden Guardians, giving them the card, after which they lost only in the Bracket Stage and only against LPL champions JD Gaming. It was the latter that sent BLG into the last chance net, beating their compatriots 3-0 after they beat C9 and also 3-0.

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 games, 100% wins).

Bilibili Gaming have experience of beating teams from the West directly in this tournament. However, they have only beaten LCS, and it should be tougher against LEC as G2 Esports will be more venerable than Cloud9 in their current formation.

G2 Esports formation

Continuing the match breakdown with an analysis of G2 Esports' playing form. In this match, the team will play as an underdog, as indicated by the bookmakers.

The odds of winning G2 Esports in the bookies are estimated at around 2.9. Such a figure does not cause doubt and surprise for the same reason as 1.4 on BLG.

G2 Esports first team from Europe in the tournament, although it is not selected as the leader of their region. They were Mad Lions, who fell at the hands of G2 Esports.

"Samurai" made it to the UK capital by winning the LEC Winter draw. Then G2 had no particular problems making it to the grand final, where they also beat the Lions quite easily.

At LEC Winter 2023, G2 Esports played worse. They qualified for the play-offs of the tournament from the second match of their group, reaching the bottom of the play-offs. Once there they played against the Lions again, but they failed to repeat their LEC Winter success: G2 Esports dropped out of the LEC Spring 2023 play-offs, but made it to the Mid-Season Invitational 2023.

  • G2 Esports: BrokenBlade, Yike, Caps, Hans Sama, Mikyx.

The Play-In for G2 Esports was successful and even easier than BLG. G2 Esports didn't feel LOUD and easily shut down PSG Talon, beating both clubs 2-0.

In the Bracket Stage, things were no longer so rosy. In the first round, G2 Esports played Gen.G, arguably the main title contender, and managed to take a card from them, which in the realities of today's competitive scene is more than good.

G2 Esports met their main rival, MAD Lions, at the bottom of the grid. The European derby on the international stage ended in a convincing victory for G2, establishing them as the best team in the LEC.

G2 Esports' most popular champions

  • Gragas (3 matches, 66% win rate) goes to the top line.
  • In the woods either Belveth (2 games, 100% wins) or Maokai (2 games, 50% wins) or Gragas (2 games, 50% wins).
  • On the centre line variety: Yasuo, Sylass, Cassiopeia, Sejuani and Yone appeared in spades once each and won their game.
  • Of the shooters, Varus (3 matches, 33% win rate) is in play.
  • On Support, Nautilus (2 matches, 50% wins), Nami (2 matches, 50% wins).

G2 Esports have already gained experience directly in the bottom set, having made it past the first round of matches here. This should help in a match against a serious opponent.

Personal match history of G2 Esports - BLG

The teams have not previously played each other in official matches. This is the teams' debut head-to-head encounter.

The result of the match.

Sad to bet on BLG, but there seems to be no other option. Despite G2 Esports winning the first leg of the lower net, the Chinese top five still look better simply because of their play in the Chinese region.

I allow for maps or even cards from G2 Esports to be taken, but they won't take the series. BLG win with a score of 3-1.

Bottom line: 3-1 in favour of Bilibili Gaming.

All bookmakers have agreed that Bilibili Gaming is the favorite. This can be noticed because odds on them are 1.165. This number in the favor of G2 Esports amounts 6.813. Respectively, the last ones are the underdogs of the upcoming match.
