Match prediction

An interesting meeting should turn out, and it is very difficult to determine the winner. The Koreans have shown themselves well in past matches, closing all opponents 2-0, but for the team this is the first World Cup, in the current line-up, and at any moment something can go wrong. Orange is also doing well, with the difference that they have a lot of matches dragged on for three maps. Despite the fact that with a slight advantage, DRX are considered the favorites, for some reason I like the Europeans more.

Outcome: Fnatic win

According to leading bookmakers predictions, the team DRX are the favorite with average odds 1.713 at the moment. Respectively, bookmakers consider Fnatic to be the outsider of the match with odds on a victory in the sum of about 3.452.
